Sweet Baby card

dsc04515
This is a card that I made because I had to play with the new jumbo wheel I bought, Nursery Letters.  I know a few people with babies due early next year, so I need to stockpile a few of these cards!  I also used the Level 2 Hostess stamp set, Cause for Celebration.

The colours are Soft Sky and Barely Banana … I think Barely Banana makes a great baby card!  And I added on a metal edge tag from Stampin’ Up!.  I’m really liking the metal edged tags … they add great dimension to a card!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Baby Shower card

I had a baby shower on the weekend for a very special family member from my husband’s side of the family.  We are all very excited that Alison is pregnant (it has been a tough road) and we know she is also having a boy who is due in August.

This is the card I made for her Baby Shower … it only took about 15 minutes to put together and I was really happy with it.  I found inspiration for the card from SCS here.

I had the pleasure of using my textured card stock again which is just gorgeous and looks fabulous!  Plus, I played with my new Crop-a-dile again and the scallop circle punch.  I used Fun & Fast Notes for the pram and So Many Sayings for the words (with my Bashful Blue marker pen – stamp to rubber).  Of course, although the lighting is bad in the photo, you can’t really see the Dazzling Diamonds I have used.  The wide grosgrain ribbon really finishes the card off.  What do you think?

If you like the effect of the three Barely Banana brads you really should order a Crop-a-dile.  It makes adding an attractive embellishment easy and silent to do 🙂  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!
