It’s A Boy for Freshly Made Sketches # 69 and CASology #27

My first mobile upload !!!

I used FMS # 69 to make this Baby Boy card using Parker’s Patterns DSP–love this paper:) I had thought hard about how to use this sketch…and received the inspiration from a day time nap today…lol. It was a cold, drizzly day in Orlando, and our visiting family all took a quick late afternoon nap. After 30 minutes, I woke up and thought, “B-O-Y” three letters, three focal points in the sketch! So, I set to work trying to figure out how to put the card together. I found a sentiment from an Inkadinkado clear stamp set with “it’s a boy” and cropped out the boy using the SU Bitty Banners dies. I die cut the BOY from a kid’s CB set and popped it off some circles. I originally was playing around with Marina Mist Polka Dot Parade, and my daughter said it was too bland- too monochromatic. She saw the Parker’s Patterns strewn across my floor and said, “Wow, that’s awesome, I wish I had a shirt like that!” She loves BLUE…so I thought I would enter this in CASology # 27 as well. So, I set to work using that DSP…and this is what transpired.

  1. Thank you, Linda! I love the red glimmer paper on your card for this sketch. I also really like your “bicycle in motion” card and the inside of it;)

  2. Thanks for sharing the story of your inspiration for this card. Next time I’m stumped for an idea I think I’ll take a nap! This is a great card for a boy. I love the texture and the DSP is perfect! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Thank you, Jen. It’s funny how many times before going to bed at night that I get an idea;) and one too many times, I get up and work on a card ’til way too late…lol

  4. I think this is really neat – I love to use bold colours for baby cards! I’m so glad you joined us in the fun at CASology this week, Cindy!

  5. Cindy, I am going to have to try this technique…nap, idea! Love it! I love your card, too…what a great design and color scheme for a boy! Thanks for playing along at CASology!
