Oh Baby!

1/14/21 Spotlight Winner at Cardz 4 Galz!

Hi everyone! A very Happy New Year to you! Our first challenge of the year is live over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #141 – Anything Goes! Starting the year off with a bang with a fun fold! Yep, that’s how I roll, lol! You know I love me some fun folds! This is a triple cube card that’s 4″ x 6″ and folds flat for mailing. I found this one on Pinterest this past summer and unfortunately don’t know who to credit, but they sure took the craft world by storm! Lots of fun!

I created this card for our newest grandson whose nursery theme is astronauts and space, so these sweet Bugaboo digital images were just the ticket! I printed them on Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and then die cut them with stitched dies. They were adhered to stitched square die cuts on each surface of the boxes. I also used one of Lozzy’s Star Splash Mixed Media digital papers for some extra-terrestrial goodness! ;)

Here are shots of the back. The one I found on Pinterest had a plain back so I gave this one my twist with another martian die cut, stamped sentiment, punched hearts and a block for signing.

And one more look… folded flat for mailing. Totally loving how this turned out! So stinkin’ cute!

OH BABY!

2/15/20 Featured Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you’re having a good weekend! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today!

I created the most adorable baby card featuring a pair of shoes that I colored with my Prismacolor pencils. First of all, I’ve had this C.C. Designs rubber stamp in my stash for several years and it’s never had ink on it until now. How in the world does this happen?! Secondly, I’m still somewhat of a novice coloring with pencils and I’m so proud of how this turned out!

Aside from the adorable image, this features an ivory and salmon-ish color combo along with several die cuts – large and small classic squares, layered postage stamps and stitched sentiment flag. I embellished the tips of the postage stamp notches with tiny and small iridescent gemstones.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the cardstock used on the front, and then stamped a simple sentiment.
