New Baby


Hi there crafty friends… for our challenge – New Beginnings I have a New Baby card to share with you.

New BabyAren’t these the cutest little toys.  Last month I took part in Online Card Classes, Mask-erade class, so put into practice one of the techniques I learned.  I stamped the owl first and then made a mask out of Post It tape before stamping the fox and bunny. These stamps are from this set.   I used some Copics to colour them in.   My background was made with this stamp  I white embossed it before using some Distress inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire) to sponge on.   I finished off with a die cut and matching sentiments from this set    I die cut the Congrats in white and then once I stuck it on, went round the edge with a black maker.  I white embossed the rest of the sentiment onto the blue card.

New Baby 2My second card combines some WPlus9 stamps and dies with Hero Arts stamps and Dies.  Once again I used the Congrats  die and stamp set.  The background was watercoloured with Derwent Inktense pencils, as was the baby elephant and the balloons.  The die cuts on the balloons are from Alphabet Uppercase dies (currently not available in our shop but you can CUSTOM Order it in the Store. Just click on the REQUEST CUSTOM ORDER form on the store HOME Page!)

Mini Cards In Pink and Blue

Hi, friends, Chark here today with some mini cards you can make to attach to a baby shower gift. I made one in blue and one in pink. The card is 3.25″ square and is meant to be tucked into a gift bag or punched and tied to a ribbon.

robots2I just love the little robot stamp set called Super Cool from Kelly Purkey that’s brand new in the store, so I snapped one up. It includes the phrase Domo Arigato, which I haven’t used yet, but think will come in handy at some point! These little phrases would be great for Father’s Day too.

robotI used my Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen and rhinestones to add some sparkle. The star background is the Stars Pattern stencil that I find myself using again and again.

If you look closely at this photo, you can see the glitter from the clear pen on the robot. I love glitter! And the pen worked as a waterbrush to spread some of the stamped color onto the robot. I used Distress Inks for the stamping and stenciling.
