Just Add Ink #350

Hey Everyone

Welcome to Friday and a new challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week our challenge is for you to:

One of the girls I work with is due to have a baby boy soon, so I’ve used this challenge to create a card for her and her husband. I am loving Bermuda Bay, Basic and Whisper White as a colour combination for a little boy. My little bunny and squirrel are from Fable Friends and a lightly with Bermuda Bay Ink.  I’ve fussy cut both and layered them around my sentiment from Welcome Little One.  The designer series paper I’ve placed behind my circle cut out, and the striped piece under my sentiment, is from Botanical Butterflies.

The team at Just Add Ink have created wonderful baby cards to inspire you. Head over to the challenge and take a look.  We would love it if you could play along with our challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

CAS(E) this Sketch #285

Hey Everyone

We have had one cold and wet weekend here in Melbourne. It’s been a great day for crafting in my craft cave with my heater on and catching up Netflix while I created.  I made a card for this weeks sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. Sketches are my favourite and this fab sketch gave me a chance to create a baby card.

Stampin’ Up!s Little Twinkle Stamp Set is a sweet little set for baby card. The constellation heart is just gorgeous and I’ve been wanting to use it as soon as I opened my latest order.  I gave it a light watercolour and added some darker shade to some of the shapes with Blushing Bride Ink.  I also added an Artisan Pearl for a little bit of twinkle to go with the sentiment.  The sentiment is also from this set and I think it adds a fun-ness to a baby card.  I also used the star background stamp in patches and then added some circle and star punches made with my Twinkle Builder Punch.  The designer series paper I’ve used is from 6″ x 6″ Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

Here’s my card:

Mojo Monday #372

Hey Everyone

I’ve had such a busy weekend but somehow I have managed to complete all my Design Team commitments for the week, design cards and cut cardstock for a class next weekend AND create two cards for fun! Don’t you love it when things just fall into place?

The card I’m sharing today I made for the sketch challenge at Monday Monday.

I’ve seen this retired Stampin’ Up! teddy stamp around for years and thought he would be  perfect for colouring.  I was browsing around on Ebay a couple of weeks ago and found it quite cheap.  I decided I needed it for future baby cards as I always get requests for them and never have any up my sleeve.

A Baby Card for Gus

Hey Everyone

One of my friends at work asked me to make a baby card for her new nephew Gus.  I came across this really gorgeous card of Paula’s and love how she created the cute little boat – so I’ve CASEd this idea for my card.  Here’s what I came up with:

And I wanted to personalise it so I cut out the letters of his name with my Slice machine for the centre of my card.

I always put so much pressure on myself when I’m asked to make a special card – I hope she likes it! Thanks for taking a look.

Edit to post: I only just checked the colour combo at Dynamic Duo’s this morning (instead of last night when I posted this card) and realised my card qualifies for this their challenge this week which is to create a project with Crumb Cake and One Other Colour.  My card is made with Crumb Cake and Bashful Blue – I hope this is ok to enter???

Cheers
