News Flash, You Are Awesome! TGIFC56

Okay everyone!  Are you ready for a real challenging challenge??
First off, I almost completely forgot about it being Thursday until I was chatting with Rochelle (who is also on the TGIF team) - thanks Rochelle!  I thought this might be a good challenge to make some Project Life cards for because we will be heading to Texas to see family (and go to a baseball game... the Pittsburgh Pirates are playing in Texas - yay for away games!). Anyway, I decided against that for now since I already have a Pirates scrapbook page.  
------->You can see it here.<------

This was a challenge for me since we don't have too many sports stamp sets.  Had to get creative!
I decided to make a card for our son Eli.  He will start t-ball the first week in June and I want to encourage him since this is his first time playing on a team!

I stamped a strip of Soft Suede cardstock with the Hardwood stamp and then cut the baseball bat out by hand.  The baseball itself is a 3/4" circle that I drew on with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker.

For the jersey I inked up one of the onesies from Made with Love and drew a line across the bottom to make a shirt.  I also added the small Smoky Slate stars with the Made with Love set.

The cute little saying "News Flash you are awesome" is from one of the new hostess stamps coming out June 1st.  It's a "punny" stamp set ;)

The red stitches are from the Bohemian Borders stamp set that is retiring at the end of the month. They make the perfect baseball stitches!  And those cute little number dies are also retiring! :(

I think this would make a cute birthday card or encouragement card!  Maybe even mix it up a little and make birthday invitations?

Well I hope to see you over at TGIF Challenges!  It's a tricky one but I know you can do it!  You have until Thursday! :)

If you place and order with me by May 31st of $20 or more, I will mail you a brand new catalog from Stampin' Up!  Please use hostess code: UPAUWSXK


  1. Holly .. its is amazing what you have done. This is clever and creative. I love this card! the baseball ball, the baby onsie turn into a t-shirt , the bat.. incredible & cute . x Bibi

  2. Or leave it as a onesie and make it a baby card for the new baby of a baseball fan! My niece's hubby is a HUGE Cubs fan and they just had a little boy yesterday...great card idea! Thanks!
