Yesterday a friend called me and said “have any baby cards?” I didn’t have any pre-made, but knew I had time to whip one out so my answer was “sure, boy or girl”.
I am so in love with this Sweet Baby stamp set, but I didn’t want to do the typical pastel blues. I reached for the new Adventure Fundamental with their water-colored wash it tones down the bright vibrant colors. I stamped each of the balloons in a different color Glacier, Lagoon & Emerald and used the thin cuts (yeah no fussy cutting) to layer them in a bunch. I then stamped the string directly to the front of the card. My baby elephant was stamped on a piece of B&T from the Basic Fundamentals. Have I ever mentioned how much I love those papers?
Thanks for stopping by today! Don’t forget that the Color My Heart Color Dare challenge this week is to use your blues – follow the link for all the details and to link up your card.
I stopped by the Color My Heart Color Dare today – it’s been a while since I played along and how could I pass up with the monochromatic challenge of using blues with a little white daisy and black as neutrals!
I also noticed they are having a Design Team call so I’m throwing my hat in the ring for a chance to play along with a Design Team again. I love the Color Dare because it allows you the freedom to choose whatever sketch you might decide to play along with too!
My entry is on a base of Crystal Blue CS. The B&T mounted on the strip of black is from the Magical Papers – LOVE the design as it gives so much movement to the card! The Feel Better sentiment, stamped in Pacifica, is one of our mini stamps. I am always reaching for the “M” size stamps – priced at just $2.95US you really need to add each of them to your collection! The Sapphire scalloped circle is cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge. To finish it off I embellished with a few blue sequins from the Magical Sequins collection and a few bitty sparkles.
I love the CAS look of this card, it really focuses on the message at hand. Thanks for joining me today and if you get a chance stop by Color My Heart Color Dare and check out what their design team did with the challenge. They are such a talented group of ladies, I really hope I’ll get to play along with them and get to know them better!
