shopping with baby

A long distant memory of mine, going shopping with my sons when they were babies. I can remember th efirst time we took Tom out in his silver cross pram the pram nearly blew over as we hit a gust of wind ! I must say this card has more of a tranquil feeling to me.

The image is a digi from the  By Lori Designs range. Papers from the girls paperie range. Iused two punches for the flowere and added a blob of liquid pearls to the centres. The round card was cut from Kraft card using The large plain circles by Go Kreate.
Patterned paper - Girls Paperie
medium - copics
Button Twine - The Ribbon Girl
I am entering this card into the following challenges, Charisma Cardz and Dutch Dare Card

A Little bit of fluff goes a long way ...

I am not sure whether I should be saying this publicly but if I 'whisper ' it it should be fine but  I am going to be joining the lovely ladies at Cupcake Craft Challenges  shortly so I thought I would do a practice run and join in with the challenge this week. used the sketch from the Card Patterns blog

I used a Heather Ellis digi image coloured with copics. I chopped up the pom pom braiding and added a fluffy tail and fluffy bobbles onto her shoes.  I have had the gem branch?  no  idea what its real name is,for ages and threaded it through the tag along with button twine in which I threaded some beads onto.

Lots of Layers...

Yep the title says it all. Using lots of layers is unusual for me and as I like to be challenged I thought I would have a go  at the Cupcake Craft Challenge using this weeks sketch over at My Favourite Things.

I found these papers  and flowers at my Local craft store The Hobby House yesterday (I am in love with them).

Oh Molly

I have fallen in love with the Molly Bloom stamps.  I believe that this wonderful image is coming soon to the Ribbon Girl  I cut the bunny stamp up so that it would pop up behind the raised kraft frame which I cut with spellbinder dies.

Boy or Girl ?

A colleague of mine asked me to make a baby card for her daughters imminent birth. Trouble is she has no idea what sex the baby is but she wanted a card ready to give her soon after the birth, so instead of making a neutral card ideal for a boy or a girl  I decided to make two cards one in blue and one in pink.

 I used two digi images from By Lori Designs, coloured with copics and mounted the image onto patterned paper. I added a a small bow made from Seam Binding , which can be bought from the Ribbon Girl.

The challenge this week over at the Just Magnolia and Hanglar blog is an anything goes challenge with the option of adding buttons.

I made this card with this challenge in mind.

I coloured the image with copics. The attitude chipboard word is something I have had in my stash for years its by Lil Davis. The buttons (which I popped some gems on top) and ribbon are form the Ribbon Girl.
