it’s a boy

Hi everyone! I’M BAAAAACK… with another card I created for The Outlawz Challenges! This one is for the Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge and our sponsor this month is The Paper Nest Dolls. The part of the rhyme I focused on this time was the title “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” so I used the Elisabeth Bell ‘Teddy Bear’ digital image to create a baby boy card.


I colored the image with Nuvo alcohol markers, cut it with a stitched mini scallop die and stamped the sentiment in green ink. I kept this hybrid design pretty simple and went with a green and yellow color combo, suitable for a little man. I DTP-inked the green dotted ‘resist’ paper which I paired with textured yellow cardstock. I punched several hearts from red cardstock and finished the front with some green Dot Sparklers.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover paper and cardstock used on the front, as well as a punched heart, and stamped the sentiment in green ink.


And one more look… love how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
