Baby Cards, Mother's Day Cards

Baby Cards.

I need to build up my baby card stash for next school year (lots of babies every year). I was looking for something simple... yeah, right. Anyway, I searched high and low for the perfect digis and then finally realized I had the perfect Sandylion set in my "sale" pile. I rescued them and searched for inspiration at SCS. I LOOOOOOOVED what craftygirlfromMG did with the lion! The papers are used are from MME, Fancy Pants, and HL.

I stamped the lion with brown Stazon on a variety of pattern papers and on white. I cut his entire body and face from the pp and just the head/tail fluff from white.

Notice here that I just made a careful cut to get to the face.

Add some glue dots for a bitty bit of dimension.

Layer on the white pieces.

Foam dot.

Face from pattern paper.

Mother's Day Cards.

I needed a couple more quick cards. Once again, the word "quick" is a lost cause.

I loved this card by glowbug. I'm not usually in favor of things that don't run vertically but her card was so beautiful I decided to try it! The pp are Anna Griffin.  The sentiment stamp is by Delta. The BG stamp is by Fancy Pants. I cut the background shape with my Expression and doodled a border with a gel pen. Most edges are inked with black.

Beautiful flower by Stephanie. White and button trims from HL. That adorable button trim was RAK'd to me by Kristin. We like to make it a habit of just throwing fabulous supplies at each other :-)

Little roses by Prima. Butterflies and punched and topped with stickles and a pearl.

About the same. Now, the background on the sentiment piece is a FP clear stamp. I stamped it with sparkly Versamark and rubbed on pink shimmer chalk by Pebbles, Inc. Love Love Love that effect.

This flower is also by Stephanie.

Thanks for stopping by!
