Funky New baby card

Hello, I am late blogging today – will do this then I need to get to bed!

Today’s card is inspired by the 365 challenge blog which has a theme of someting going on in the world at the moment.

I immediately thought of the speculation over the sex of Kate and Will’s baby.  Personally I think they should be allowed to get on with it with having tabloid newspapers guessing over he colour of their pram, but I thought a patriotic, non-traditional new baby card would be perfect!

The digi stamp is from Pollycraft and is called ‘family’.

So here it is:

Scrapper’s Delights DT Post

Good morning everyone!  Today’s blog post is a card made using a sketch and a beautiful digi from Scrapper’s delights.  The digi is called Draco Duo 1 and and is available here.

I got the sentiment from this month’s Making Cards magazine and the rest of the papers are from Parermania’s Hot Diggedy Dog range.  The sketch called for a bow but I didn’t want that for a boy’s card so added an age.  The papers are all edged in Cocoa by Promarkers.

Here is my card:

Simple stamped Father’s day card

I deliberately made this to look distressed and vintage – not my usual style. This trundling car  puts me in mind of the scene from Bugsy Malone, when Bugsy is escaping with Fat Sam from Dandy Dan, “Charlie! Yonkers! It’s a double cross!”

I used 3 stamps from the same set, the car – placed on an angle here, the greeting and the background which was ink one for 2/3 stamps and overlapped to get the design where I wanted it.  It looked good in just bIack but wanted to add some subtle colour so I have coloured the car and drawn and edging line using my mustard Promarker.

They say a change is as good as a rest and this is a change from my norm, but I really like the end effect.

Here is another gorgeous digistamp from Mo Manning, thi was one of the first ones I ever bought (about a year ago) but Mo Manning stamps are always good to go back to.  This is an 8 x 8 card trimmed with gems for a very special little girl.  The corners are made with Spellbinders.
