Babies, storks and bugs!

It seems like I know what a lot of friends, and relatives, of mine were doing last summer since they're having babies right now. I've been in need of making several baby cards lately and have had to get a little creative with some of my stamps since I don't have a lot of baby stamps.

I had found some really cool paper at Joann's from Die Cuts With a View called Nanna's Kids so I paired it with the stork image from GinaK's How Sweet It Is set. Since one of my cards was made for twins, I stamped the stork three times and then colored the blanket in purple twice and popped one stork up on pop dots. To keep the card on the "feminine" side, I added some prima flowers and bling before adding the congrats from an old retired Stampin Up! set. For my boy stork card, made for my new great-nephew, I colored the stork blanket in blues and just kept the card simple.

The ladybug Die Cuts With a View paper was the inspiration for this baby card. I used Papertrey Ink's Little Lady set and masked off the wording from another Papertrey set to get the congratulations only. I thought having a momma ladybug and her baby would be a perfect baby card and very unique too.
