new baby card trio

I made a few cards to congratulate new parents. They turned out kinda cute so I wanted to share them with you. I didn’t realise how crooked this was… Cute and simple, like a baby 😀 The pink and blue ones are still available here. Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp Ink Paper #95 – sketch

Check out this offset sketch for Stamp Ink Paper #95: Here is my take on the sketch: It’s a pink and feminine Mother’s Day card embellished more than my cards usually are. I am trying to make sure I use what I have (so I can buy some new stuff!). I’ve got two different pink…

Fusion challenge – pretty in pink

Pink is the theme for this Fusion Card Challenge: I used the pink element and the sketch. Here is what I made: It’s pink and super girly! I embossed the patterned paper and ran a bit of ink on the raised flowers an birds. The speech bubble and heart are chipboard. I used the same…

CTD 427 – mint, aqua & pink

It is a Spring-like colour combo of mint, aqua and pink for Color Throwdown 427: I wouldn’t be surprised if another one similar to this comes up in April! Here is what I made: I decided that although Spring-y, the combination could also work for a Valentine’s Day card. Those are die cut hearts behind…

CYCI 144 – watermelon, aqua, grey & white

It’s colour challenges for a bit over at Can You Case It. This time ’round the colours are: Here is what I made with the combination: I used a light grey journaling card with a neat white plus sign pattern on it for my middle panel. For the watermelon, I made some diamond die cuts…

ctd 424 – black, green & hot pink

It’s black, green and hot pink for Color Throwdown 424: I admit I kinda dig those oven mitts in the inspiration image 🙂 Here’s my card: I used a Momenta Art-C stamp and die set for the the flags and stamps. The hexagonal and scalloped tags are Sizzix. Lots of the edges are inked in…

CYCI 143 – sketch challenge

I am keeping up with my “back to challenges” streak with the three week-long challenge at Can You Case It? I have been meaning to start my Valentine’s Day cards and thought this sketch might get me in the mood. It certainly did, but my cold says that one card is enough for now 😀…

CYCI 128 -Shine

It’s a sketch challenge at Can You Case It this week: I had a birthday card to make for my bestest friend so I used this as an opportunity to give her a reminder: The sentiment is stamped with some American Crafts metallic ink. The jewels are die cuts that I coloured with a silver…

C.T.D. 398 -raspberry, pink, green, yellow

The Color Throwdown challenge this week includes these colours: Here is what I made:   The lime green spray ink on the card and ink on the wooden embellishments does not show up well in the photo unfortunately, but it’s there! I used two different stamps for the sentiments and framed them with inked wooden…

CYCI 124 – watercolour!

I was so excited to see this week’s Can You Case It challenge! I have the tools, but just haven’t delved in to watercolour. I need a lot of practice, but I also needed the reminder of how fun it is! I cut some Strathmore mixed media paper for the front panel. The watercolour paint…

CTD 396 – peach, raspberry and plum oh my!

What lovely colours for the challenge this week at The Color Throwdown: Peach, raspberry, plum and white make up this warm and summery bunch of colours, rounding out the summer themed challenges this week. Nothing too special about this card, but I kind of like the extra touch of the brads. The paper came from…

CTD 394 -You Stuck With It!

Some classy colours are on the docket this week at Color Throwdown: I had a lot of fun making this one: It’s kind of ombre, with a cactus stamped and cut out, placed on pop dots for dimension. The “Congrats!” is stamped, and the bottom sentiment is hand written. This card is available here.
