WOW I’m back again!

I finished these recently.  I had a request for a few baby cards plus some general cards.  Nothing to specific so I decided to play with some of my older sets along with some new to me things.

First up is a card using PB Best friends with a sentiment from Papersmooches Blossoming Buds.  This one was coloured with alcohol markers then I used make up brushes to sponge my background.  The whites of the toad stools were finished with a little wink of stella.


Next up I used the PTI Good times set.  I totally CASed this card – so if it’s yours thank you!  I used my stamping tool to line up the sentiment in different colours.  Pretty easy with the right tool.


Now onto those baby cards I mentioned.

First one uses ME Carnival of Cupcakes again coloured with alcohol markers.  This time I used the co ordinating dies to cut out the image and pop it up with foam.  This card is a little 7.5 x 7.5cm square.


I often stamp and colour more than one image at a time, especially if its small like this one.  So here is a bigger version of the card above.  The sentiment is from ME Just Hatched.

So a little more ME… this time the sentiment is from YNS. I used some little pieces of pattern paper and other die cuts I found needing to be used.


And yet again more ME! This time Just hatched.  And once again coloured with alcohol markers and die cut.

I had a lot of fun colouring and making these cards.  I need to find some more colouring in time!  I do have a few floral images I also started to colour so hope to be back soon to share those. 

Funny my “new” pile isn’t getting any smaller 😉

Oh baby…


 I’m popping in today to share a few baby cards.

I am linking up to the current challenge at ScrapbookBoutique here

Last week was a busy week with 2 friends from knitting group becoming grandmothers, my cousin became a grandma for the second time and one of my book club buddies welcomed another into her extended family.

One of my friends asked me to make a card.  So I made several. Sorry this is going to be a bit of a pic overload. Cause when I have everything out and I can’t decide I just get on a roll.  Especially with the Noah’s Ark.  Decided to make a few colour ways as I coloured up a few images at once.

Using ABS digital paper (the stripes match the shorts on the mood board), SU Made with Love, Su Baby’s first framelits and Simon Says Stamp baby.

Using Papersmooches Fascinators to create a shelf, ME Carnival Cupcakes & dies with digital pattern paper and ME just hatched.  Do you think the little creatures are to straight? I wanted them to look like they are sitting on a shelf maybe the little rabbit should be leaning to one side. What do you think?

This one uses PTI Sweet baby, SSS baby, stitched dies and circle dies.

SU Baby’s first framelits and SSS baby.

This is the one she chose. SU Two by Two coloured with alcohol markers die cut with circle die and layed onto doily die.

I stamped and coloured a few images while I had the markers out and made a few for my stash.

I recently resigned from my part time job so today is my first day I would normally be at work.  I have applied for a few jobs. So what am I going to do in the meantime? After a little bit of tiding up I plan to turn on the sewing machine and maybe make another card or two.  I finished a quilt last week which I will share another day. I started another one some time ago and would like to make some progress on it.
