My wheel fell to pieces......

......I will spare you with the Patsy Cline lyrics today :)  Hard to believe I can quote you Metallica to Patsy Cline....what's up with that?!?!??!?  lol!!

Today is the first day of THE RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour for the NEW catalog!!!!!!  WHOOOHOOOO!!!!!!  Don't you just absolutely love the new cattie?  Oh my......Every catalog and mini catalog out does the last - How does Stampin' Up! do that??

When I first laid my blue eyes on the Baby Tees wheel - I HAD to have it!!  I probably won't even use it as a "normal" wheel.....I wanted it for the individual onsie images.  They are totally darling!  And I mean d.a.r.l.i.n.g.!!!  My little one has always loved rubber ducks, since before she was even a year old - obsessed with them, actually - so I am drawn to rubber duckie images :)  So, I had to make my first onsie card with the duckie tee!  Wanna see??

Do you?????

I mean - we could talk about the obscene weather we are having in Pennsylvania this week.....

We could talk about my lack of a voice this week........

What?!?!??!  Show you the card already??  OK........

Well?  What do you think?

Did I mention that I also love the Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper??  It is somewhat a formal, beautiful floral/medallion pack of deliciousness.....but I was determined to use it on a boy's baby card.  How did I do?

The card base is daffodil delight.  My picture sure doesn't do it justice.  It is the prettiest, creamy, buttery pretty!  The "ric rak" paper is from Greenhouse Gala.  I cut out the bottom to accent the pattern and layered it on a piece of baja blue before adhering to the card front.  I wrapped a piece of white satin ribbon around the seam.  See the scallop circle?  It is the brand new 2 3/8 scallop circle punch - {luv} it!  I first stamped a piece of pear pizzazz with the homemade single stamp in pear pizzazz and then punched it out.  lovely, huh?  Doesn't that scallop punch mat perfectly with the 1 3/4 circle punch???

My sentiment is from the new set, Perfect Punches.  I inked it with stampin' write markers and then punched it with the modern label punch.  I then used my bone folder to break down the fibers in it so I could adhere it down "banner style."  (hehe!)  I accented the sentiment with a button from the brights button collection and a piece of crochet thread. 

See the onsie???

Isn't it just darling?  (not to toot my own horn.....I think it is cute ;))
I stamped it three times and then paper pieced it together.  It was stamped once on the greenhouse gala paper, once on pear pizzazz and then on whisper white.  The ducks were colored with so saffron and daffodil delight stampin write markers.

Well, that about does it for today.....let me know what you think about this card and then click on the icon below to continue on with your will not want to miss a single stop!
