Is it a Boy or a Girl?

Yes, the exciting news is that we're going to be grandparents for the first time! Our oldest son and his wife are expecting a little one in the Autumn. Needless to say, we are all thrilled!

I received Kaisercraft's "Bundle of Joy" 12 X 12" paper from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, and could not wait to break them open. 
What adorable paper! They have a definite vintage appeal with the adorable prints and classic patterns...right up my alley!

You also received a full size sheet of coordinating stickers as part of the paper pack...perfect for projects! I also received the sweet little die cut shapes, "Kaisercraft Collectable Bundle of Joy Boy" and "Bundle of Joy Girl."

I began with two little cards, as we truly do not know if it is a "boy" or "girl" yet:

I used the Kaisercraft Bundle of Joy Boy paper for this card, along with the baby and banner from the die cut "Collectables."  Love this color too, a combo of sage and aqua.

The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink and JustRite's new clear stamp set "All Boy." What a great set...! Look for designs to come from it.

It's buttons and bows for my little girl card....buttons from my stash (the big one accented with a Mint Kaisercraft Rhinestone), and a bow made with a Bow Easy and May Art's Silk Ribbon.

Paper and die cut from the Kaisercraft "Bundle of Joy" Girl theme.

All linked product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Looking forward to more projects with these papers...time will tell whether or not they will be in dusty pink or aqua blue!

Wow! these are beautiful! It's so funny that I'm already excited for grandbabies and my kids are still in school. It just seems like the coolest gig! Have fun!

Late in making this comment but after just seeing this card on Stamp Simply, and after ooing and ahhing, I
am wondering how you adhered the tails of the silk ribbon to the paper without showing the spot adhered. They are so beautifully done I know there must be a fabulous trick to keeping it beautiful. Thanks.
