B for Baby

Hope you had a wonderful first day in the new decade. Do you have any New Year resolutions, crafty ones? Well, normally I try not to because after a while I realise that it seems to disappear in non-being (lol). But this year my crafty New Year's resolutions is to create pieces from time to time which I feel quite uncomfortable with ... the style, the theme, the colour, the technique, the shape. I started straight away today with a Baby girl card ... I don't do baby cards very often especially the ones of the pink variety. Cards still feel awkward at times and I am not so sure about the Shabby Chic style. Luckily I found a really appealing sketch for the card layout over at s'Sketches ... it is their bonus sketch ... and combined it with the Shabby Tearoom colours
paper - plain white card, Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, Kars
stamps - Heyda, Elzybells
ink - Brilliance Ink
flowers - Prima
gem - Kanban
ribbons from my stash
Tim Holtz Sizzix Die

I cut the shape of the card with the sizzix die, the patterned papers are sewn together and the edges distressed with chalk. For the image I used an Elzybells stamp and did some paper piecing. The 'B' for baby - my sentiment - is stamped, cut out and glittered. Finally I added some flowers ... yes, I know mayby a couple too many ... but once I started I just couldn't stop .... luckily I ran out of the little ones (lol)
Have a great weekend with lots of crafting, Petra.
