PSA Essentials & Nikki Sivils Blog Hop

Welcome to the PSA Essentials & Nikki Sivils Blog Hop! Can you believe it? Three hops this week - WooHoo! It's been a fabulous party time! (You should have come from Angie's blog) I'm so excited about today's project and being able to share not only PSA's darling stamps but Nikki's fabulous designs. And this paper was all about boys, which is super special for me since I have two sweet little boys!
With boys in mind, I opted to create a welcome baby card and in a layout that would allow me to showcase a bunch of the papers that were included in the sweet Noah paper pack. The background of my card was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and my circles were all punched with a 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches (from Stampin' Up!). To highlight the PSA stamps, I used a Spellbinders die to create an area for the sentiment and the baby carriage, which was attached with foam tape. To finished off the card I used a star, from a star die from Sweet 'n Sassy, and a pearl swirl from Zva.
The little box was created following this tutorial...super easy! I then added a big 'ol bow, a sentiment from PSA, and a hand cut star from the Nikki Sivils paper! Fun stuff!! are the details for the hop:
