Sock Puppet for Baby




  • Stamps – Deep Red “Sock Puppet” and Denami Designs “Baby”
  • Dies – Spellbinders Nestabilities “Labels Twenty-Eight”
  • Patterned paper – Bundle of Joy “Baby Boy Onesies” (both sides)
  • Embossing powder – Stampendous “Periwinkle”
  • Cardstock – Paper Arts
Today I’m sharing a card I made with a stamp that I’ve had for quite a long time and never had the proper occasion to use! That seems pretty hard to believe, since a sock puppet should be appropriate for many occasions! I used the current The Paper Players Challenge #242, which includes a card sketch. I used a Spellbinders’ label die and popped up the layered image to add dimension and a little emphasis on my focal point.  I embossed the stamped sentiment on lower right-hand corner. Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Birthday – Watercolor Background


  • Stamps –
    • Simon Says Stamp “Tag Sayings”
    • Simon Says Stamp “Square Sayings”
    • Avery Elle “Petals & Stems”
  • Die – Simon Says Stamp “Medium Tags”
  • Rhinestones – KaiserCraft – Dark Green
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and Paper Accents
  • Watercolor paper – Strathmore
  • Twine – Little B

For this card I created a watercolor background and stamped over it with silhouette-style floral stamps. I used stamps from several different stamp sets to put this altogether. I always find mixing-up stamp sets to be fun. The current challenge (Challenge #16) for the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group is to use watercoloring on your card or project. Here you’ve got my entry. Thanks for visiting.

Does this mean you’re a grown-up now?


  • Stamps – The Cat’s Pajamas “Smells Like Cake”
  • Dies – The Cat’s Pajamas “Fancy Flip Cut Ups”
  • Patterned paper – Hampton Art Ki Memories “Metro Garden”
  • Patterned cardstock – BoBunny
  • Solid cardstock – Bazzill

I had not created a flip card like this before. I used The Cat’s Pajamas dies to make it, which made it a simpler process (they also have a video on their site with a demo on how to make a flip card with this die set). The penguins are on the outside of the card and when you flip that portion, you can see the sentiment (below). I colored the penguins with Copic markers. We gave this to my brother-in-law for his birthday. Thanks for stopping by today.
