Baby Baby and Saturday candy



What a challenge this weeks theme at Allsorts was for me, but I have done my best to come up with something half decent for Wendy's theme of Baby Baby. Our sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy so every reason to join in for a really great opportunity to win one of their lovely stamps.

I have to admit that baby cards along with wedding and the like really do put the frighteners on me, mainly because most of the suitable stamps require colouring in which is right outside my comfort zone, but that is I guess what a challenge is all about.

I initially made the card below for the theme but was not really happy with it so the one above is a last minute addition after seeing the sweet baby images on Ignacio's Nicecrane web site and thinking this particular one would go very well with some Graphic 45 Secret Garden DP's and some silk ribbon in my stash which I used to make the flower. So here it is along with several Spellbinders, Cheery Lynn and Memory Box dies.



And this is the original make using a really old stamp from Stamp Happens happen which I coloured with watercolours, done a bit of matting and layering and used a piece of Nitwits DP to carry the colours, fairly simple stuff.

I would like to enter the top card for following challenges:

A creative romance - dies and punches
Chocolate coffee and cards - Anything goes
Wags and whiskers - Ribbons and bows
The sugar bowl - Anything goes

And the second card into:

Crafty little fairies - New baby
Delightful challenges - New beginnings

Now for the winners of last weeks candy who is re-drawn 20/9 as not claimed and new winner Marylin mailed, well done please mail me with your full name and postal addy. And this week I have a set of cute birdcage stamps, same rules as usual....................

  10. Actually, they are both lovely cards, Brenda, but the top one is definitely more your signature style, with perfectly matching colours and gorgeous ribbon. Love the soft colouring of the bottom card though.

  22. I really like your dancing bunnies, but I have to admit that the vintage card is my favorite. I don't make babycards that often myself nor weddingcards. I think that they are difficult to make too.

  25. I like the way you solved the dilemma with both of your examples. The second one really evokes soft baby colours & makes me think of soft muslin overhanging & decorating a cot - one of those old fashioned ones with t sort of pyramid over the basket...... The first is my favourite though - what a super way of using the image & making it special.
