Sweet Little Baby and an announcement!!!

I just finished up the baby boy ensemble today that I was telling you about in my last post. I really like the way everything turned out and I hope the new mommy likes it, too.  Rowan gave me his stamp of approval while I was making everything saying how much he wanted one! I thought that was cute! I guess it helps that it had cars on it!  When I have been out shopping for all of the girl things I have been making, I noticed that the fabric store had a lot of cute new boy fabrics as well. I always struggle to find really cute boy fabric, so I was thrilled to see this.  The card and tag were all inspired by the cute fabrics. If you want to see the things I made for the gift you can see them here .
   I know that I am crazy, but I purchased the "Little Hot Rod" stamp set from PTI just because of this gift set. I knew that with three boys, I would use it alot anyway. I have a ton of nephews, too and my little ones will get invited to tons of birthday parties in the upcoming years so I thought it was a good investment. I was bummed to see that the coordinating dies were out of stock, but I will buy those as soon as they become available.


I chose the color scheme based on the fabric, of course.  I used pure poppy, spring moss and ocean tides. I really should have used simply chartreuse, but after I had it stamped with spring moss, I wasn't going to start over. This was the third time I had stamped it anyway because of smudging issues.  I combined "Star Prints, Just the Ticket and Postmark" as well.  I forgot how much I enjoy using my classy brass stencil for the  piercing around the star. You will probably be seeing more of that in the future.  I added some diamond stickles to the headlights of each car for some extra detail.
Once I was done, I wasn't ready to be done, so I whipped up a quick little tag for the basket. Super quick, but it helps tie it all together!  


As far as my announcement goes....I guess it is fitting that I have been posting all of this baby stuff because we are expecting a baby in September!!!!! We are so excited!!! I will keep you tuned in as to whether we are having a boy or a girl! Thanks for fluttering by!
