It's a Baby Boy

I received a message from a friend yesterday asking if I wouldn't mind making a card for her new baby nephew, as she hadn't seen any that she liked at the shops. Are you kidding me? Would I mind? I'd love to! And not just one either. I just had to make two for her to choose from.

I dropped them off to her this morning, but of course I took some photos before letting them go.

First up I made this card using images from my new Bundle of Love stamp set, the "Congratulations" sentiment from my new Love & Laughter stamp set, the little sentiment from the Little Additions stamp set, and paper from my new Subtles paper pack. New, new, new! Gotta love new stuff!

If you look carefully you can see that I stamped the smaller images from the Bundle of Love in Bashful Blue ink onto the Bashful Blue paper. Cardstock colours are Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. The image was stamped on watercolour paper with black StazOn ink, was coloured with ink pads and an Aqua Painter, and was embellished with silver brads. The circles were punched with various circle punches.

The next card was inspired by this card that I found whilst surfing the net.

This card was completed using various punches: Star Punches, Owl Punch, Scallop Circle and Circle Punches, Large Oval Punch and Square Punch. The largest circle was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.

Cardstock used was Chip, Bashful Blue and Whisper White. The sentiment if from the Little Additions stamp set.

Thank you for visiting my blog recently Andrea. I love these two cards. Really like the colour combo and layout on both x

Both very different but gorgeous Andrea! Beautiful colouring on the first & I love the background stamping & the way you used the circles too. The second looks great too - very cute for a little boy too.
I wish I'd seen these before I started working on a baby girl card. Thanks for sharing. Hugs. Di
