These projects were all inspired by family or friends having kids or their kids having birthdays.
I created this card for my neighbor's baby shower. Its a delicate purple polka dot background. I used the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress Petite plates to create the it's a girl and dotted lines (http://lifestylecrafts.com/products/letterpress/printing-plates/petite-printing-plates.html). I used violet ink (http://lifestylecrafts.com/products/letterpress/ink/letterpress-ink-30-ml-violet.html). I added a string of matching purple floss and Martha Stewart flower stickers found at Michaels.
This card was made to welcome a new baby cousin. I used the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress petite plates again (http://lifestylecrafts.com/products/letterpress/printing-plates/petite-printing-plates.html) with light blue ink (http://lifestylecrafts.com/products/letterpress/ink/letterpress-ink-30-ml-light-blue.html). I used Lifestyle Crafts Cookie Cutter boy shapes and circles in complementary blue colors and accented the phrase with a blue satin bow.
This was created for my friend's son's second birthday. He had received a fish tank for a gift and LOVED it! It is three complementary blue papers all 3 dimensional of each other. I added Lifestyle Crafts whale die to give it a maritime theme (http://lifestylecrafts.com/whale.html).
