Alternative Baby Card

Hi everyone, Heidi here, for today’s project I created a baby card with some gender neutral and alternative colours.

To start this fun card I stamped three of the images from the Kennedy Grace Creations “Sweet Baby Mine” stamp set on Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper with Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and I clear heat embossed afterwards. This way the lines stay black and crisp no matter how much water you ad.  
The idea behind this card is that these cuties are the baby's toy animals.

Then I started colouring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and my Pentel waterbrush. I used the following colours:
Lemon Yellow and Yellow, Bright Yellow and Orange, May Green, Pale Green and Green, Pale Dawn Gray, Haze Blue, Shadow Mauve, Light Gray and Light Blue. I went over the yellow parts of the animals with my “Clear” Wink of Stella and added some white lines with a Gelly Roll Pen for more interest. After the images were dry I fuzzy cut them out with my Fiskars scissors and set them aside.

For my background I wanted to use a technique called “ink smooshing”. Normally I would do that with Distress Inks but this time I wanted to try this technique with my Zig markers. I die cut a stitched rectangle panel from watercolour card stock and used the colours Shadow Mauve (which is a fairly light colour, so I needed to go in several times to make enough of that colour visible) and Pale Dawn Gray.
I love the result and it gives these cute animals a little ground to sit on. Both of the sentiments used on this card are from the same Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set as the animals, I stamped them on the watercolour panel with Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and my MISTI stamping tool.

Next I created a mat from some matching green card stock and adhered the watercolour panel on there with liquid glue. These combined panels I adhered to a linen textured white coloured card base with one millimetre thick foam tape and then arranged the cute animals on the watercolour panel with one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that finishes today’s fun and playful baby card! 
I wish everyone a creative day!

Love and Laughter,

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
