Baby Girl Croghan Blog Hop

Baby Girl Croghan Blog Hop
I had to create a sweet baby card for the baby girl blog hop that began yesterday for Lesley Croghan!  This is such wonderfully exciting news and I can't wait for Lesley and Corey to have their sweet little bundle in their arms next month! 2017 Mar25 Baby Girl Broghan Blog Hop I grabbed WPlus9's Happy Gang set for the occasion!  I stamped the little mouse in gray on pink cardstock, fussy cutting it afterward.  The main panel is a Stitched Rectangle Die from Simon Says Stamp.  I stamped the sentiment and balloon string on the main panel in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  The balloon was stamped with silver ink and fussy cut before being popped up with foam adhesive. 2017 Mar LesleyC BabyHop Closeup Three Pretty Pink Posh silver star sequins were added to the design before popping up the assembled main panel with foam adhesive on the card base.  Babies are simply the sweetest creatures.  Here's wishing Lesley and Corey all the best in their new adventure! Be sure and join in the celebration and link up your creation by this Friday, March 31st, at midnight (MST)!   2017 Signature   Save Save SaveContinue Reading...

CASology SOFTness

CASology SOFTness
It's Tuesday and you know that means a new cue word over at CASology!  This week, we're getting a little soft.  Not with the rules of clean and simple card design, of course.  It still takes certain elements to create an effective CAS design (you can find them on the CASology blog)! week-225-soft With the number of stuffed animals collected over the years with four children in the house, teddy bears came to mind for this cue!  Uniko Studio has a rather adorable teddy bear image in the Sweet Baby set, so I used it to create my design.  I die cut the stitched main panel using one of the dies in Mama Elephant's Femme Frames.  The stitching on the die coordinates nicely with the stitching on the bear!  I used a piece of yellow decorative paper to paper piece the bear and then stamped the simple, pretty sentiment below it.  The main panel was then popped up on the card base using foam dots for a little dimension. I hope you'll take a little time to visit the design team and guest designer blogs this week!  They work hard each week to provide inspiration for the challenges and would love to hear a little hello from you!
