Oh Baby!

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’ve Got the Blues

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!
