Baby gift tags may be just the thing to finish off the wrapping for a baby shower gift!
"A new baby is like the beginning of all things-wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities".

Did you know you can make your own tags if you have a cute set of stamps, some Whisper White cardstock, Stazon ink and some Stampin' Write Markers? I had been thinking about making a special card for friends who are about to become parents for ages, then all of a sudden the baby shower was upon us and I was still thinking. Cardmakers know the thinking part is the longest part, right? I needed to make a decision and go with it.
That's when I got out my Baby Bundle stamp set from Stampin' Up! It is such a cute set. It is a retired set now but there are always cute baby stamps in the current catalogue.
If you would like to order a set of current baby themed stamps. I can arrange delivery to you Australia wide via my Stampin' Up! SusanSalutations store.
I love the little pram in this stamp set but stamp sets change and you may find another image you like this year.
For the green card on the left, I took a strip of cardstock and stamped the pram image in black Stazon ink on the bottom of the strip. Then I had to put a baby in the pram, and I loved the cute booties so hung them on the pram handle by using a clear mount set with a Stampin' Block. The clear stamp block makes more accurate positioning so easy. Then all I had to do was to colour the images in with my markers. I highlighted the polka dots and the pram hubs with metallic gel pens, then outlined the whole thing with my lightest Bashful Blue marker, also now retired. I added the sentiment from the stamp set to the inside of the tag (it fit beautifully - Stampin' Up! products are so well coordinated) and coloured in the little hearts.
For the yellow pram, I stamped it from Fun and Fast Notes stamp set, now retired, and then added a baby and a little teddy. Baby has dropped teddy from the pram, of course. I coloured the images in and outlined them as before and used a sentiment from the Baby Bundle set for the inside of the tag. I stamped it on a small oval and punched a scalloped oval from Daffodil Delight cardstock to mount it on to add some colour to the inside of the tag.
The two baby gift tags took very little time to make yet they turned out so cute. They looked great on the basket of goodies we put together for the mother-to-be.
