Baby Cards

Happy Monday morning, friends!  I have had a couple of baby cards I created, that have just been lying here, waiting to be photographed.  I used digital images from A Day For Daisies.  They are some of the sweetest images ever!


My first card uses an image called Babies Smile.  I used white card stock and designer paper from Prima, called The First Blush.  I cut out my image that was colored with Copic Markers, using the Spellbinders Peony Dies, and then backed it with a larger layer of Pumpkin Spice Pure Luxury cs.  My sentiment was a clear stamp from an unknown set.  The embellishments were a piece of paper doily, button, and embroidery floss.


Card two, is made with an image called Sleeping Flower.  I started with a ivory, A2 blank, a layer of Bazzill cs, and then designer paper from K&Co's Sweet Nectar collection.  Again, my image was colored with Copics.  Sponging was done with VersaMagic ink.  Spellbinders used are Labels Twenty-Two, and Parisian Motifs.  I added a tag from My Minds Eye, some Stickles, a dotted swiss ribbon in lime, and a tiny puffed heart from K&Co's Smitten collection.


I understand that some of my friends were slammed by the snow that ended up staying south of us. Sorry :( , I worried quietly about this storm all of last week, knowing I had to attend my DIL-To-Be's surprise shower in South Jersey, on Sunday.   It ended up a beautiful day!  I hope to post some photos soon.

Mary Anne,
How adorable! You are really getting some nice new dies GF. I like both of these but the second is my favorite so cute the way you put the ribbon through the die.
