Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut

I have a few friends who are due in a few weeks/months so I thought I'd make them cards using my new "Wee Tees" to show them have cute they are in their white tees complete with baby bumps! We called our boys"peanut" after we saw their ultrasound pics, even after because of the way they looked bundled up when sleeping. The arrow pointing to the "precious cargo" and the t-shirt are both from "Little Tees". Shade with a light gray marker to give it a nice round belly. :)

I used some Basic Grey Offbeat DP and DCWV Spring Stack paper for contrast and a layer of Creamy Caramel to match the little peanut. TIP: I pierced two rows of holes (there are severall "double tracks in the Scor-Pal perfect for this so you don't have to move the paper) along the top and bottom with my Scor-pal and Scor-Bug and flipped it over so I have rows of bumps (outies!) instead of holes ( innies)! Base is the new Gina K Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss. "Wee Tees" also includes a set of numbers and "weeks" and "months" so you could stamp something on the inside like how many weeks they are along or how many weeks they have left to go! Those countdowns are a BIG DEAL LOL!;)

Have a great day! Off to play with my peanuts! (even at 6 and 4, they will always be...!)

PS Check out this fantastic sample and sketch from Jen Del Muro, she worked it inot this week's "Sketch For You to Try"!


  1. Too cute! I wish I could think so freely about the stamp sets I own Melanie! You know - just "see" the possibilities. I t's a talent, for sure. One I hope to develop more fully in the future. You come up with the cutest ideas!

  2. I have to know how you did the shadowing around the belly to make it look pregnant. That is just too cute!

  3. PRICELESS!!! You are so creative to come up with such an "original"! I'm sure they will get many chuckles over this one ! :)


  4. I was just wondering- could nurse feelgood be used to show a preggy lady? And, can the tee here be put on her (stamped on top so she is wearing it)or is that not possible? I think thats 2 ideas but not sure if they work! ;)

    Love your clever coloring.

  5. What a nice belly!! LOL (Better that it's not mine! Hee Hee) Love the peanut... we use to say our daughter was a grain of rice. *smile* Your friends will love your cute cards using the Wee Tees!!!

  6. This is a great card for a expecting mom! Leave it to you to create the perfect baby your shadowing and I also called my little one's "Peanut". My youngest at 13 months and only 17 lbs is on the light side and therefore still my little peanut. Too cute! TFS!!!
