Ultimate Baby Inspiration...

((UPDATE: HERE is a video on how to make the felt roses that I've done on these booties.)) 

I have a sweet little baby ensemble to show you today! My project started out with these baby booties and then I made the tag to match and the card to coordinate also! Let's start with the card...

This is made with a new stamp set called Rattled. I used the new Instant Photo 1 die to cut the frame around it and stamped the dots with Polkadot Basics III. I popped it up with foam adhesive and tied seam binding around the frame before attaching. In the center, I used the Rattled stamps and dies. I used Glossy Accents on the rattle to make it shiny and dimensional. 

Oh Baby! card:

Next, we have some baby shoes made with the new Baby Booties dies and Baby Bootie Detail dies! Aren't they adorable? I can't wait to see what everyone else made with these. Erin Lincoln came up with these dies, and they are so creative! Now I really want to go to a baby shower (girl, of course!), so I can give them away!

The felt colors I chose for my booties were Vintage Cream, Lavender Moon and Spring Moss. These were WAY easier than I thought they were going to be to make. Erin's videos explain it perfectly! Not hard at all, just takes a little bit of time to get them all stitched up. I think this pair took me about an hour at the most, but I had so much fun and was amazed at the result when I was finished! (I ran to show my hubby, but he gave me a funny look! HA!) To be so excited about something like this...I guess men just don't "get it", do they?
To decorate the tops of these, I used the "Spatted Bow" with the scalloped edge. (Except I didn't use the bow piece on top, just the scalloped piece.) Instead of the bow, I made my own felt flower with a strip of felt and die cut leaves with the The Sweet Life dies. 


To add a little tag for the recipient, I cut the same scalloped die I used on the shoe, except this time I cut it out of cardstock instead of felt, so I could stamp on it. I stitched it up with cream floss to coordinate with the booties, then I used Rattled stamp set for the sentiment and bow on the tag.

Erin Lincoln has posted a video on how to use these dies to create baby booties. Watch it HERE. She shows you how to make all of the different kinds: Fringed Moccasins, Penny Loafers, Mary Janes, etc. Be sure to watch the main video first on making the basic bootie!

Well, even my husband said "wow" when I showed him this, and he does not like to encourage me in any way when it comes to PTI! Off the Richter cuteness scale.

Oh Danielle, these are just precious! What do men know? I don't have any babies in the family right now but must have these dies for my hope chest. :)
PS In the middle of your blog the picture is over your words except for a couple of letters lining each side of the picture so I can't read what you wrote. Any way to fix this on your end or mine? Your ideas are always so wonderful that I don't want to miss any of the goodness!
