YNS New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp (YNS) blog hop to celebrate the release of 4 new sets by Jenny Suchin Designs. Lucky me gets to share Special Delivery, an adorable set to welcome baby with an iconic baby elephant that I've fallen trunk over tail for. I showed a peek of this set on Sunday, and I loved the cute little onesie card so much that I've made two more--one for baby girl and one for baby boy. Let's call them Ellie and Elliot, just for fun! You may have hopped here from Jenny's blog and if so, you're on the right track, so let's get started.

I started with card bases created with my Silhouette using a cut file from the Silhouette store and Authentique Blissful Collection papers. The elephant image was then paper pieced onto the stamped card base with embellishments added to fancy up each of the cards.

 

Seam binding and an acrylic rose for Ellie, buttons tied with linen thread for Elliot. Finally, each of the card bases was pierced around the perimeter for a faux sewn look. The stamping here was pretty darn simple, but the combination of patterned papers, embellishments and paper pieced images gives each a sweet, homespun look.

Before I send you hopping to Jen del Muro, who is certain to have something adorable on which to feast your eyes, I'll leave you with some great YNS blog hop and shop details:
