Dazzling Baby cards

I’ve a few baby cards to show you today. The first two are from my embossing class the other night.

For these cards, everyone used the jumbo wheel with Nursery Letters and then embossed with Heat & Stick power and Dazzling Diamonds for a sparkling effect! Gosh, it looks even better in real life! Then we embossed the prams from Simple Somethings with silver embossing powder … and everyone could colour as they pleased to suit their events! I’ve coloured the baby girl’s card in Pretty in Pink using the Stampin’ Up! pastels …

I’ve coloured in the baby boy’s card using Bashful Blue from my Stampin’ Up! pastels …

This is a close up … I love the Heat & Stick plus Dazzling Diamonds effect, don’t you!?!

Then I had a card left over, so this is an additional card I made. This time I used the baby stamp from In the Stars (available in the Summer Mini) and stamped it in Versamark and then Barely Banana Ink … and then embossed it. I’ve used a metal edge tag to add elegance to the card and I used the Certainly Celery DSP to punch out the scallop circle that I’ve layered the baby stamp onto. I hope that makes sense!

And, lastly, white taffeta ribbon finished off all of the cards.

Now is the perfect time to get organised for the year ahead.  And what better way than to make some baby cards?  There are so many gorgeous bubbas being born at the moment … why not give a new Mum and Dad and special, handmade card to keep for their newborn?

I am having a baby stamp-a-stack card class on Friday 30 January 2008.  Come along to my house and make 10 cards – 5 boy designs and 5 girl designs.  Bookings are essential, so email me today!

A different kind of “Friday night in”

Last night I did my first ever Cyberstamp with The INKlings group that I am a part of. There were 10 of us online last night, that was great! Our talented uplines set us 4 challenges to complete so the pressure was on the the creative juices forced to flow!

These were my efforts:

FIRST CHALLENGE

To complete a gift tag of any kind in 10 minutes … phew!

10 min Gift Tag

Apologies for the poor lighting for the photo. How simple was this card? Just Whisper White and Lovely Lilac cardstock, Birthday Best stamp set and Basic Black ink with a colour in with the Lovely Lilac marker pen was almost all that was needed. To finish the card off I used my trusty 2-way glue pen with Dazzling Diamonds glitter … bling!

SECOND CHALLENGE

This was a sketch challenge. Of course, my first! What a great idea though … we all followed the sketch and were to use patterned paper on the card and choose our colour scheme from the patterned paper. I used Loves Me DSP from the Summer Mini Catalogue … I’ve been meaning to do a baby card for so long!

Baby Boy!

THIRD CHALLENGE

Now this was really a challenge … a colour challenge. We had to create a card from the the colours: Vintage Violet, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Cool Carribean. I didn’t have any Cool Carribean and substituted it with Bashful Blue. Would you have picked this colour scheme?

FOURTH CHALLENGE

Our last challenge was reverse masking … and now I have finished it!
