BLOG HOP DAY 3 - Bundle of Joy

Hello OCL Blog Hoppers!  Have you enjoyed seeing the sneak peeks from the Design Team over the last couple of days?  Isn't this a great release?  I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the new sets!  Well, today's the day you get to find out what set I'm giving away as blog candy.  One of the girls wrote in her blog yesterday that the Bundle of Joy set was becoming her go-to set for baby cards and it has also become mine (as if you couldn't tell, ha!)...hopefully it will become yours as well since it's my blog candy!  Keep reading to find out how you could win this awesome set!


This is another great project using Bundle of Joy and yep, you guessed it...Shower the Baby.  *grin*  I absolutely LOVE these sets together!  Seriously now, what expecting mommy-to-be wouldn't be thrilled to receive a designer diaper bag and coordinating card???  The best part...it's also a gift card holder.  Do you see it there in the little pocket?  And check out that baby stroller...way too C-U-T-E!  It was stamped on Neenah, colored with Copic markers then cut out.  The wheels were stamped twice and popped up on Foam Squares.  Isn't the baby peeking out of the stroller precious?  That was me using my imagination; unfortunately, it isn't a stamp.  I made it by cutting a circle for the head, the ears then the little curl for the hair. 
It was colored with Copics and glued to the back.  And hey, don't forget about that ribbon...I was all thumbs when I put that on using Scor-Tape.  It took me FOREVER (ok...maybe not forever...but it sure seemed like it)!  Hmmm...what else?  The diaper bag was pretty easy to make.  I can post a tutorial of it later if anyone is interested.  It actually holds quite a bit.  I stuffed a Beanie Baby, a small blanket (it's underneath everything so you can't see it), a little book and three bibs.  The handles are attached with Scor-Tape and are actually pretty secure.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  If only I had someone to give it too!  The baby bottle card is a Sizzix die so it's really easy to assemble.

The rattle is from Bundle of Joy and the strip of ducks and the word "baby" is from Shower the Baby.  The rattle was cut out and popped up on Foam Squares.  I guess that's about it.

Copic coloring:

Stroller:  Y15, Y13, Y11, C4, C2  Baby:  R11, R00, E00, E000, 110 and a Copic Multiliner  Rattle:  B02, B01, B00, B000, Y38, Y13, C4, C3, C2, C1  Bottle top:  B02, B01, B00, B000, Y38, Y13, C4, C3, C2, C1  Outline:  110

Just a reminder, any comments you leave on my blog (and all of the other participating blogs) Wednesday, Thursday and today will count towards your chance to win blog candy.  To be eligible, please make sure that you include your contact information when you comment.  The contest will close on Saturday, February 26, at midnight.  Comment daily for more chances to win!
