Baby Card

Guest Designer for CASology Challenge # 41 GIGGLE using SU So Many Scallops

Hello, everyone! I was so excited when I was asked to be the Guest Designer for  Week # 41 at CASology– a favorite site of mine;) Stop over to see what the amazing Design Team has created and play along.

Week 41 - GIGGLE

When I was given the cue word: GIGGLE, I immediately thought of  babies. Off  I went to search out my extremely limited baby stamp collection which consists of only single pieces out of  a few occasion stamp sets. Imagine how happy I was when I saw that SU So Many Scallops actually had the word GIGGLE on the baby stamp!  So, I went with it:

SU So Many Scallops 2

I had fun embellishing the card but still kept  it clean and simple with a main focal image surrounded by an abundant amount of white space. I layered a scalloped circle of pink CS  under the image- I think it adds a little something to the card;)

SU One in a Million

I loved the colors for Colour Q # 182 this week and thought of flowers at first. Then I couldn’t get my mojo running with it. Thought about the colors some more and took a look at The Paper Players # 138 this week for more inspiration. Looked through my stamps for a set that has been neglected and decided to use SU One in a Million. I am always asked if I have any baby cards so that’s how I came to this…

SU Moving Forward- SU Congrats

I was so excited to use my SU Cloud embossing folder for The Friday MashUp #99 using the  SU colors of Pool Party, So Saffron, and Real Red with a  BABY theme… I was also thinking about the Paper Players # 134 sketch challenge this week and took some artistic license and flipped it on its side and pulled the rectangle all the way across the card. Funny thing is…last week the PP challenge was BABY!! Might confuse the DT over there…

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.
