Something for Baby

Hello Crafters,

I want to say a big sorry for missing in action over the past 2 weeks. I have been quite unwell, but now I am back and ready to share some wonderful ideas with you all!

I begin with a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a Colour Combination Challenge JAI#231.








My dear younger sister had her third baby last week, a little boy to add to the two girls she already had! It was such wonderful news and Mitchell is just adorable.

Anyway, I saw these colours and immediately thought baby card, so here it is.

I began with a Bermuda Bay card base and added a layer of Crushed Curry cardstock.

The next layer is Whisper White, the best cardstock for stamping on by far. I sponged the stars at the top using a sponge dauber and the stars decorative mask, then punched the side of the cardstock with the new stars border punch. Isn’t it just gorgeous?!!!

I stamped the pram from the Something For Baby stamp set in crushed curry onto the white card and again on some spare white card twice. I also stamped the pram in Bermuda Bay ink onto white card and cut out just the bassinet of the pram and added it with dimensionals.

The two yellow images on the spare card, I cut out the hood of the pram from each and folded them and put them together with glue.

I added some ribbon, tied it in a bow towards the bottom, so the sentiment could be added above it.

The sentiment is from the Baby We’ve Grown stamp set inked in black and punched out with the decorative label punch. The little stars on the sentiment are bits out of the stars border punch, so cute hey?!!!

I glued the white card to the crushed curry card and then used dimensionals to add them to the base card.

I didn’t feel it looked quite finished and it needed something, so I added a little of the silver glimmer paper which was an off cut from another project.

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.

  2. Perfect for the new little boy. I like how you have used the star punch and stencil. I just used that ribbon on a card last night to and i love it. Chantell JAI


  3. Nawww this card is so sweet! I love it how you added the little stars to the sentiment and added the little pop of glittery paper to the pram. It’s lovely to see your entry at Just Add Ink this week.
