Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi everyone and welcome to this week's Free for All Friday challenge!  This is my first time hosting a challenge and I am excited to challenge you to make a baby card or project.  My sister is always asking me if I have any baby cards, so I thought I would surprise her and make some ahead of time.

Here is my sample baby card (I made a coordinating one in blue for a boy that you can check out in my gallery).  I used the new stamp set, Special Occasion Tags and embossed the frame image as well as the edges of the card. 

So, now it's your turn!! Simply create and upload a new project for this challenge (it can only be entered into this  challenge, no combining StampTV challenges ) to be eligible for a prize. You may combine it with challenges outside of StampTV. If you use Gina K. Designs stamps, your name will go into the drawing twice!

You have until Thursday, Jan. 12th at 8 pm Central to upload your entry.

Use the keyword STVFRIMW1 for your tag for this challenge. 

Have fun!!! Can't wait to see what you create!!

You can see the gallery for this challenge here: STVFRIMW1 GALLERY

I love to make baby cards, that is my favorite theme :) I will create something Michelle !! Love your card.

Hi, Michelle - babies - I love all of them! Who wouldn't :)

I'll have to be really creative because my Gina stamp collection is not large yet, but I want to use something by her/her DT ladies. Best wishes on your challenge! PS If you get a chance, did you use stickles on your flower? I love your design(s)!!!!

Luv luv,


Hi Rosy,

You don't need to use GKD stamps to play along!  Please play along with whatever supplies you have on hand.  And yes, that is stickles I added to the flower petals.

Have a great weekend!  Hugs to you.

Well I played, but maxed out my uploads so I will be back tomorrow with my card -- meanwhile it is on my blog.  Fun challenge Michelle!!

Thanks for doing this challenge.  I just uploaded my card for this to the gallery.  It is a simple card but I love the Nesties.  Thanks again.

fun challenge!  here is a card I made (had to make one to match a baby blanket I just made to send to my friend's first grandchild!)  

Baby Boy Jack

Thanks for a fun challenge, Michelle!  I don't need a baby card at this point, but now I am prepared!  HERE is my card!

Thanks for such a sweet challenge, Michelle!  This topic was perfect timing as I needed to make a card for a dear friend!  Your sample card is soo sweet - love the baby boy version on your blog too!

I hardly make baby cards so this is a great challenge. Love your boy and girl cards, Michelle! 

Here's mine - Sweet Baby.  Have a great day!!

An adorable baby girl card, Michelle, and great challenge.  Since we have a new grandbaby arriving in July, this challenge was just what I needed.  I've made Gina's box using the tissue box many times but decided this time to cover a tissue box.  Directions are on Splitcoaststampers resource section.  HERE'S my BABY PROJECT.
