Well, I mentioned in another post the arrival of Jai Anthony to some lovely friends of mine. I’m going to meet him today so I thought I’d make a card to welcome him to the world. Now, since Bundle of Joy has been retired *sob*, I have to make sure I get some use out of Nursery Neccessities this year! It won’t be hard with the number of girls I know that are expecting, but I’m starting off easy by semi-CASEing from the IB&C!!!
And this card is similar to the girls and boys baby cards I have designed for my next SAS (if you are interested – it’s on May 14th).
Chocolate Chip is such a versatile colour – it looks great with pretty much anything and is a lovely ‘warm’ colour for baby cards – here I used it with Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink.
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you are enjoying the long weekend….. and some chocolate!! 🙂 K
Okay, so it’s Pretty in Pink, not Regal Rose, but it’s still pink! This is another card from my class last weekend. We used the brushless watercolouring technique here and if I do say so myself, I think it’s quite pretty!
I also showed everyone how to ink up the background stamp (En Francais) with the brayer and then use the brayer again to ensure you achieved a good print (Thanks Jayne!). We used Pretty in Pink ink on the same cardstock along with Ballet Blue and Old Olive markers on the Watercolour Paper. A little bit of paper piercing using the template and then 3 pretty in pink brads and some Bashful Blue grosgrain to finish it off. The watercolour paper is also popped up on some Stampin’ Dimensionals to make it stand out.
Thanks for visiting! 🙂 K
BTW I LOVE my new background stamp – hope you’re all prepared to see more of it!! LOL!

Thought I’d share with you my attempt at Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge #52. I’ve used Certainly Celery (an oldie but a goodie!!) with Pretty in Pink, Whisper White and some more of that gorgeous Petals and Paisley DSP. The stamp is from the Simply Said set and I’ve stamped it in Pretty in Pink then sponged a little of the Pretty in Pink ink around the edges of the card. I had some brads out (pink) to attach as well, but then couldn’t decide where to put them, so Iwent for paper piercing instead. If I hadn’t already attached the stamped piece of card I would attach it with dimensionals, but it’s too late to go back now!! 🙂
Hope you are enjoying my pink and green week – they seem to be the colours I am reaching for at the moment! Cheers! 🙂 K
Hi! Hope you are having a good week so far. Mine is a little so-so, but I’m in a good mood tonight – helps that I’m playing with my paper and rubber!!! I have also finally been taking photos of my ‘heap of scraps’ projects – I seem to have actually made more scraps!! Don’t know how, probably best not to think about it too hard! Anyways, I’ll be sharing them over the next few days.
This card and the bagalope next to it are decorated with papers from the Pallette’O’Prints pad. Would you believe this is actually my first ever bagalope!! It is VERY easy to make, check out Splitcoast Stampers or lots of other blogs for instructions. I have decorated it with a Dahlia fold embellishment which is made up of 8 punched circles all folded and attached to a circle of cardstock behing. I also added a little circle to the centre to hide my untidy joins!! 😀 The card is such a simple little one, a strip of patterned paper, a piece of gorgeous wide grosgrain and then a little sentiment stamp just to finish it off! Colours are Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla.
Last but not least is another Colour of the Month card! No, I hadn’t forgotten! I just keep picking up other colours first!!! This card showcases Blue Bayou with Real Red and Whisper White – and just a hint of Soft Sky behind the stamped image. I stamped the greeting from the ‘For a Friend’ Hostess set on Whisper White with black Stazon and then used my trusty aquapainter to colour the heart with red ink. Easy as falling of a bike! The stamped pattern along the bottom edge of the card is the Rough Texture jumbo wheel – fantastic just to create a bit of texture without adding mulitple layers.
What do you think? Could I hide this one away for hubby for next year’s Valentine’s Day?! No, I think I’ll save it for a day when he’s not expecting it and pop it under his pillow!
That’s all for tonight, check back in on me soon and I’ll have some more for you! Also – suggestions for next months Colour of the Month are welcome – I’ll be ordering my cardstock at the end of the week and am having trouble choosing! I would hate for it to come down to me ordering the ENTIRE range so I had a bit of everything available to me!!! 😉 Nope, I think I’ll have to get out my paper piercer and open to the colour page at the front of the catalogue!!! Ouch! 🙂
