Hello and welcome, it's Angie Cimbalo here and I have my last August guest design post for you.
It has been a fun month for me and such an honor to guest design for Newton's Nook!
I'm guessing you can tell this is for a baby girl, since there is soooo much pink!
The four projects for today are:
- "Welcome baby" decorated gift bag
- Baby gift wrapped in pink stenciled paper
- "Welcome baby" tag
- "Welcome baby" card
First up is the gift bag:
I stamped, heat embossed, cut and colored three onesies from the Loveable Laundry stamp set and a wreath from Happy Little Thoughts to use for my sentiment. The sentiment is from the onesie set and all images were colored with pastel Spectrum Noir markers. The bag was just a plain pink gift bag that I bought to decorate. I've attached the three colored onesies to some twine with tiny clothes pins and added glitter tissue paper inside the bag (along with the gift) and some pink curling ribbon to the handles.
Next up is the gift wrapped in stenciled paper with the attached tag:
I really wanted everything to coordinate so I took some plain white wrapping paper and cut the size I needed to wrap the gift. Next I used Simon Says Ink's "Hollyhock" ink, a blender brush, and the Gingham Stencil from Newton's Nook to create my own wrapping paper to match. The tag on the present was cut with a tag die, covered in a vellum paper from Creative Devotion, and decorated with another onesie and wreath with the sentiment inside. The tag and gift also have pink curling ribbon on them to finish them off.
And last but not least is the card I made to go along with the gifts.
The top white panel was stenciled with the same ink and stencil as the wrapping paper, then cut with a rectangle die and matted on a black panel. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on black card stock and cut it into a strip. I added tiny hearts to some of the squares of the gingham pattern, and one to the sentiment strip, then popped up the sentiment strip on foam tape. The hearts were made with a tiny heart punch I have in my stash. I added the stenciled panel to the card base then added the sweet heart-filled onesie stamped image next to the sentiment.
Here's another look at the baby card:
And there you have it, a matching group of projects all made with the same stamps, dies and stencils from Newton's Nook! I am ready for the baby shower!
I want to extend a huge thank-you to Jennifer and Samantha for inviting me to guest design this month. It has been a lot of fun and an honor to get to share some of my projects made with Newton's Nook products with all of you!
Stay safe and have a wonderful September!
