So many babies

Several of my friend's daughters are expecting any time now or have just delivered so this week I needed to get busy making baby cards. 
My decision on which stamp set to use was easy.  I've always loved Stampin' Up!s "A New Little Someone" and simply couldn't part with it when it was retired. That little flop earred rabbit stole my heart and it's been my "go to" baby stamp set ever since.  The sentiment "Welcome Little One" is also from a retired stamp set called Riveting.

Here's a sampling of my "boy", "girl" and "not sure yet" cards. Hope you like them.
The "girl" card was made with Pirouette Pink and Whisper White cardstock.  Images were stamped in Pretty in Pink ink and the striped designer series paper is in Pretty in Pink stripes.  The Perfect Polka Dot Embossing folder was used to give some texture on the top of the card. 

I used this cute little verse "bottles and booties bibs and more, a new little someone to love and adore" and the rattle on all the cards.  For those cards that I was attaching a gift card, I attached a 3 x 5 inch Stampin' Up! envelope on the left side of the card.  I stamped the envelope flap with baby food tin images from the stamp set. 

This little 'boy" bunny card is made with Marina Mist and Whisper White Card stock.  I love the new Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper.   Here I've used the reverse side of the Blue Polka Dotted paper.  It gives a crisp clean look.

This looks really dark but the cardstock is actually Certainly Celery and So Saffron.

Lucky new mom who receives this with or without a baby gift - it's sure to go into the Baby's Keepsake Book!
