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.

Thanks for looking 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday. I hope all the lovely mums out there enjoy their day and are spoilt well!

At my technique class the other night for Mother’s Day I had a few sample cards that my ladies could choose from. So, no one walked away with the same card that night. There were quite a few different cards! But, importantly, everyone had a turn at embossing and using my new crop-a-dile. We embossed the background paper, the En Francais back stamp, and we embossed on vellum paper the flowers using Petal Prints. And we had eyelets to set everywhere!

This card below used Dazzling Diamonds and Heat & Stick powder for the En Francais background stamp – everyone chose to use the Dazzling Diamonds!! How can you avoid that gorgeous sparkle, heh?! Everyone was able to personalise their card because they could choose their words from Life Definitions or Everyday Flexible Phrases. So many combinations to choose from! One popular stamp combination was used on this card … “Birthday Wish” …

The main word definition was stamped over the flowers from Boho Backgrounds (stamped off). Gosh, I love Boho Backgrounds!!

This last card below I made at the end of the night and it was simplier (I was a bit tired by then!)

Which card do you like best?
