Welcome baby

I decided on a baby card for the sketch at The Paper Players this week!
I used some Pink Petticoat paper for the background with dies from Simon Says Stamp (frames) Paper Smooches (Welcome) and Memory Box (elephant). I simply added a googly eye to him!

I always find it difficult to make cards for chaps,so here is one which I hope might do.
It's for a few challenges!


Here are the logos.

It's sports related, it has hexagons, and follows the sketch, so I guess that's it!
The sentiment was computer generated and the images consist of simple inlaid die cuts.
Today we are awaiting the arrival of my BIL and his wife who will be visiting for a week to escape  the turmoil of their house renovations... I believe it's rather like trying to live on a building site for them at the moment!


 This little cutie is from such a fun stamp set by Paper Smooches! Almost all the birdie images bring a smile to my face. This one is for the challenge at Addicted to CAS! I guess you couldn't get much more CAS than this! It's quite a sweet thank you image!

It's also for Addicted to Stamps and More - Clean and Simple
The other day I was trying out  the speed limiter on my new car and was feeling very pleased that I had managed to set it at 40 mph. Sadly I had failed to press the button to actually put it into operation and I hadn't noticed that my speed had exceeded the proscribed limit, unfortunately for me a speed cop didn't miss it ! I'm going on a naughty girls speed awareness course next month!

A second Guest Designer card for CAS Mix Up

There's still time to join in with the challenge at CAS MIX UP which this time is to ink up your stamps with Markers.

For this second card I used a stamp which I've had for quite some time and absolutely love... from Unity. It's useful for lots of different techniques from emboss resist and alcohol lifting,  to silhouettes, gilding and heat embossing.
I again used Stampin' Up markers to colour both the stamp and the sentiment, therefore making sure that the colour of the image and the sentiment matched perfectly.  I went over the petals with a itlle clear Wink of Stella to add a touch of twinkle. Once stamped the image was cut out with a Framelits die, extending it just slightly to fit the image.
