I took today to share a few more projects I did with some for the stamps and Die-namics I didn't have time to play with earlier in the week. I pulled out some older Jillibean Soup papers (Monster Stew), which was inspired by the adorable little Monster included in the BABY ONESIE stamp set.  
I have told you over the last few months, how much I've love the other graphic tee stamps and Die-namics, and this darling BABY ONESIE is no different. Such a fun and creative way to celebrate a little one. 

So first up today is a card. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, and added the new DESIGNER LABLE 3 STAX DIE-NAMICS behind the CIRCLE STAX 1 DIE-NAMICS. I looooove how the circle just nestles perfectly in this label. 

Then I added the BABY ONESIE  on top of that. I added a few baby braddies (yes I still have some in my stash) to mimic the snaps on the onesie. There are little embossed detail for the snaps, so placement was easy. 

I added a few of strips of the Notched Border Die-namics to my middle background panel.  And following the sketch, I couldn't help by add some stars.  It was also a great time to tell you that you NEED and can use BOTH sets of star Die-namics....they each serve their purpose. lol! 

I can't get enough of the LARGER Star STAX Die-namics and then I used the original Stacking Stars, because I LOVE those open star frames. I added a few to accent this card. I also wanted to say congrats on this card, so I used the cute NOTCHED TAG stamps and Die-namics.  How cool is it that there is a teeny tiny onesie to match this big one??? Perfecto!

While I had out the BABY ONESIE DIE-NAMICS, I played around with it and made a shaped card with it. It's small for a card all on it's own.....but what about using it for a gift tag, or better yet, what about a place card for a baby shower? 

I tried one out! Love it. Plus we have the By the Number Die-namcs, so it's easy to make a few with how ever many tables you might have at your baby shower.  I used the no. 1 on this one and added to the top of a layered CIRCLE STAX 1 DIE-NAMICS with a sweet little Stacking Stars Die-namics and a button with Charcoal Twine. 

Here is a look at the inside....the perfect place to add your guest name. 

 I couldn't wait to finally color up this cutie. I love all of the Claire Keay stamps and this guy, MONKEY BUSINESS is sure to be at the top of my FAVE list. He's just too, too cute not to love. I stamped him on x-press blending cs and then colored him with copics.  Then used the new ROUNDED BANNER STAX to layer him up. 

 I also didn't have a chance until now, to use the cool new VINE BORDER DIE-NAMICS.  I cut it out in a few various shades of olive green cardstock and then added a two HIBISCUS  leaves. They reminded me of bannana leaves, so I used them and that's what I am calling them on this card. 

Since I had used the ROUNDED BANNER pieces, I knew the rounded SENTIMENT STRIP would be a great go-to spot for my sentiment. 

A wooden button (from Buttons Galore & more) and more Charcoal twine complete this.  

Thanks for hanging with me and the team this week.  You're kind, kind words are MUCH appreciated!

 The release party is tonight and I'll be back with my New Product Tour post, as well. 

You know the drill....stop by Kim's Blog for the DT line up for today's Pep Rally.
