New Babies.......


Whoops!!!! I've had a posting mishap!!! Two posts today scroll down a little further for the card I meant to have up today - The Bubblegum Girl!!!!





Hiya,

Thought I'd show the card I made ready for the arrival of a new baby boy. I showed the card I made for the new Grandma on Thursday's post.

I made a mini easel card using two sets, the first is part of a new stamp from Rupa Shevde for GKD, the little duck. The set's called Spring has Sprung and it's full of gorgeous images and sentiments. The second image is the daisy and that along with the sentiment is from GKD Stamp TV Kit Spring Mix.

I've used Spellbinder circle dies as well as a blossom die for the base of my card with dp from SU. All colouring was done using Copic markers. The daisies were cut out with the centres stamped again onto scraps of yellow card then re-attached with foam dots.

I'm entering this card into Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge as well a challenge on STV.
FTTC61 ask us to 'buy it use it' .......well I bought these label dies from Spellbinder and they hardly ever see the light of day so that's one. I also used a new eyelet from the STV kit to attach the label. I haven't used these for ages but these are very easy to fix so had to give them a try.

You might just notice that I stamped the base of the card using Versamark with another of the new stamps from the STV Kit and finished off the card with come ribbon.

This is so cute Sue and fantastic coloring!!! How in the world did you do a round easel card? I'm clueless! It's definitely unique and I love it! Yes, I did use Flower Soft Christmas Green and Sage for the roof on the birdhouse to give it a moss look. Thanks for stopping by and for always leave such sweet comments.

This is so cute. I don't understand how you did it either. Your coloring is beautiful and I love the flowers and bow at the base.
