Workshop Wednesday: Hello Baby!

Oh Baby!_9Hello once more!

I am thrilled you’ve continued along with me on today’s three-part Workshop Wednesday. If you’ve missed part one (It’s A Boy!) or part two (Its A Girl!), be sure to check them out as well!

 

Hello Baby!

Today’s final baby card could be for a boy or girl… And I love how happy the colors are! For this card’s layout, I was inspired by the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch challenge (#105).

Using the “baby” cut file, I cut the letters out of some white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. Once the letters were cut, I stamped the “hello” greeting by doing some selective masking and stamping with the Simon Says Stamp “Celebrate” stamp set. The ink I chose for the sentiment was StazOn Jet Black ink.

Next, I layered some polka dot patterned paper behind the panel using dimensional foam tape. Also layered behind this panel is some yellow paper and a white scalloped edge piece of cardstock. All of these pieces were then adhered to my card base using foam tape.

Oh Baby!_11The adorable little birds sitting on the letters are from the Inky Antics “Turtle” stamp set and are stamped onto watercolor paper. I colored them with Peacock FeathersEvergreen Bough, and Rusty Hinge distress inks before fussy cutting them out and adhering them to the card with foam tape.

I really thought this card needed some extra dressing up, so I stamped the clouds, from the “Soaring for You” stamp set by Simon Says Stamp, onto patterned paper with Jet Black ink; once cut out, they were then adhered to the card base along with some white pearls.

To finish off the front of this card, I added some Glossy Acents to the eyes of the birds, tied a yellow ribbon around the top left and bottom right corners, and added some faux stitching in places using a white gel pen.

Oh Baby!_12Next came the inside of this card… With the Simon Says Stamp “Celebrate” stamp set, I once again did some selective stamping and masking to create the word “tweet” (a play on “sweet”!). Using a Copic multi-liner, I hand wrote the rest of the sentiment for a fun and playful feel.

With the same bird stamp used on the front, I stamped and colored it exactly as I did for the front; the clouds are stamped in some gray pigment ink.

And that completes the third and final card for this week’s Wednesday Workshop! Whew, that was quite a workout, huh!? :) I hope you enjoyed the cards, and if you missed part one (“Its a Boy!”) and part two (“Its a Girl!”), definitely check them out!

    Your series is wonderful, Nina-Marie! This particular card should be used a room decoration in the baby’s room, it is so fantastic!! I’m sure it will be a treasured keepsake for the recipient, but it’s way too pretty to be put away in a drawer!!

    Thank you so much for playing in the CASology challenge! This week CASology is collaborating with my NBUS Challenge #3 as you may have seen on the CASology site, so if you’ve linked a NBUS creation with CASology, please feel free to also link over at my challenge! Have a great day! Hugs, Darnell (djkardkreations.com)
