Welcome Sweet Baby

Hi,

Just sharing another little baby card that I made a couple of weeks ago using the sitting giraffe digistamp from Squigglefly. Once again I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The sentiment was computer generated.

You can see the glossy accents a bit better in this photo on the bow.

Supplies:

Stamps: Digistamp ‘Sitting Giraffe’ from squigglefly
Ink: Printer
Card: Regal Craft Card (white square single fold), White cardstock, purple Bazzill, purple embossed card (not sure which brand)
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubbs, Glossy accents (on bow), White Kaisercraft flowers, S.E.I. buttons, thin white ribbon, herma dotto, foam dimensionals, Kaisercraft pearls, Computer font “CAC Pinafore”.

Hope you are having a great day! Very wet here!

Until next time,

Marion

New Arrival

I have been working on a cute little bear card this afternoon and I am really happy with the results. The bear is Bentley Bear designed by Adam Pescott and it came as a freebie set of cling stamps with the Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine a while back. I had used most of the stamps and posted them here but I didn’t get around to using this little cutie until today. I thought it would be great as a new baby card. Seeing how the colours I have used are pink, white and brown (Bentley is brown) I decided to enter it in as my second card to the Scrapbook Boutique October Colour Challenge as well.

I am really pleased with how the flowers and bow worked out – thanks to Jennifer McGuire’s simple video instruction over at The Hero Arts Blog (it is on the end of her video about inking ribbon). I have also never used lace before – but see it on so many other beautiful cards, I thought it was high time I tried!!

Supplies:

Stamps: Bentley Bear Stamp Set – designed by Adam Pescott
Ink: Versafine Ink (black onyx), Versacolor (petal pink)
Card: Regal Craft Card (white square single fold), White cardstock, Pink Bazzill
Other Supplies: Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol, stubbs, brown twine, white ribbon, Kaisercraft white flowers, S.E.I button, DMC pink thread, Wendy Irving “New Arrival” rub on, foam dimensionals, Zots adhesive dots, sponge daubers, white lace, pink gingham paper (not sure which brand), Glossy accents.

So what do you all think?

Giraffe – Baby boy card

This little giraffe is another digital stamp that I bought from Squigglefly. Isn’t he a cutie?? I coloured him in with Derwents and Gamsol. What I love about Squigglefly is not only the cheap digistamps, but they also have examples of how other people have used that stamp. I got my inspiration for the layout of this card from Kerry over at ‘A load of old pickle’. Check her cute little giraffe card here. She has some really cute stuff going on! I love her style of card making!!

Anyway this is my card…

Supplies: Regal Craft card (white textured single fold), 7 Gypsies patterned paper, white cardstock, bazzill cardstock (beige and brown), Squigglefly digistamp – sitting giraffe, derwent pencils, Gamsol, computer font ‘CAC Pinafore’, brown felt pen, glossy accents, Verscolor ink ‘Bark’ and sponge daubers.

I used glossy accents on the bow around his neck to make it stand out a little and give the card some dimension.

Hope you are having a great day. Thanks for stopping by.
