Today I finally get back into some crafting after a week or two on the sidelines so to speak!
I thought the best way to start, was with a challenge at Just Add Ink. So, the challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge JAI#220.
I am also using 2 of the new 2014-2015 In Colours; Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Hello Honey & Tangelo Twist.
My dear sister is pregnant with her 3rd child and already has two girls, so when they found out she was having a boy, I almost went in to melt down! This will be the 5th grandchild, but the first boy, on my side of the family.
So I need loads of practice with masculine/boy cards and what better way than to start with a Oh Baby Boy card.
I have left the very top of the card above the ribbon with a bit of space, so once the baby is born (and I get my new alphabet framelits from the new annual catalogue, available 1 July!), I will be able to add his name!
I stamped the Oh Baby image from the Baby We’ve Grown Stamp set in the new In Colour, Lost Lagoon. The base card is also Lost Lagoon and the Designer Series paper is from the new stack, Moonlight.
The scallop circle is die cut from Hello Honey cardstock… do you think it looks a bit like a bib?!!! I hope so, because that was the intention!
I find that these two colours coordinate so well and the ribbon is to die for! Below is another picture showing this divine ribbon!
You may also notice the punched stars, part of a new punch pack of 3 (which also includes a flower and a heart), all of which I couldn’t wait to get my hands on.
Why don’t you give a challenge a go, they are so much fun. Head across to the Just Add Ink page for more inspiration and see how the designers interpreted this challenge.

Ohh such a sweet card and I love all the little stars!

Great card for a great occasion. I love how you have done the stars with the same paper – it’s very effective. Chantell JAI
This just lovely Kate! The idea of a bib is perfect for a baby (they come in very useful!!) and I love the idea of personalising it with the babies name. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
Love the colours and sparkle Kate and l’m sure you’ll do just fine with the masculine/boy thing if this is anything to go by..:0)

Kate, this is just divine (as are baby boys)!! I love your idea of leaving the space at the top, to personalise. The silver stars are a super-cute touch, and I love these colours together too. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week!
