Hello my inky friends!
There are SOOOO many people having babies right now! In the last week alone, there have been FOUR new additions within our family / circle of friends! FOUR! crazy right? Three little Princes, and one darling Princess!
So it is no surprise that I am on a baby card binge 🙂 and to start everything off, today’s video features this New Baby card where I FINALLY got to play with my new Mama Elephant Page Hugger dies!
I just ADORE the way that the dies cut out the hands of the little critters- this makes it super easy to tuck items into their claws, or to create the idea of these furry friends peeking out from behind something. I stamped the image onto watercolour cardstock and coloured them using watercolour paints.
To complete a cohesive scene, I pulled out a variety of Lawn Fawn stamps. The HELLO is from Yay, Kites, BABY is from Winter Alpaca, the CRAYON is from Color My World and the BOAT is from the Loveable Legends set. <3
I wanted the background to look a bit like a note page, so I coloured it with some Squeezed lemonade distress ink before stamping it with a Hero Arts Ledger stamp.
To finish, I added some sequins from Lucy’s Cards, and some Diamonds from Honey Bee Stamps!
And now, I just need to decide which one of the new arrivals will be receiving this card!! 🙂
Here’s the video, walking you through the whole process – enjoy!
P.P.S -I am over on the Honey Bee Stamps blog tomorrow- hope to see you there!
