Baby Card

Hi Everyone! I've been slacking on my blogging for the past week! Argghhh! I'm been having a medical problem lately and it has gotten in the way of blogging, blurfing, and crafting! Hopefully, it'll be resolved soon. If I haven't visited your site and commented, it's not because I'm tired of visiting your site or I no longer like you! LOL!! I just haven't been myself lately. . .I still love you!!

Well, here is a card I made today. Gosh, I'm so happy I actually completed a card. I believe this image is from the SU stamp set "Announcements". I had pulled out the stamp set from my garage where all my old stamp sets are stored and while watching TV last night, I colored the image. I had put back the stamp set in the garage so right now, I can't tell you the name of the stamp set.

I colored the image using Copic markers then applied glitter to the image. I used the Coluzzle cutting system to cut the oval shape and a Fiskar scallop scissors to create the scallops.

Hey, do you remember the Stampin Up Crimper? Gosh, that puppy was really popular a few years ago before the CB embossing folders and such came into the picture. Well, I kept mines! Whoohoo. Like I told you in the past, I NEVER get rid of anything. Who knows, this puppy may one day become popular again.

I created the scallops with the SU slit as well as the photo corner punch to decorate my card. The brads are by JoAnns and the DP by DCWV. My color combo is More Mustard, Pretty in Pink, and Green Galore. Okay. . .it's a weird color combo but I used the DP colors to determine my color combo.

Do you like glitters on your images? I think it looked cute with this image. I don't always like to use glitter on all my images but I felt that glitters would be fitting for this particular baby image.


Well, hope everyone has a nice day!!

Hi Maria, love your cards as always! Could you please share with me/us how to use our scallop scissors? Tips and etc. I have all types of the Fiskars but when I use them, they don't ever come out looking very good. It comes out crooked, and looks really sloppy...so just how you did yours step by step if it's not too much trouble...thanks, Christina

I hope you feel better too. I just got over a huge "funk" (I'm sure you know what I mean) and am finally in my studio working up a storm. Luckily I had two weeks worth of cards to post while I wasn't up to creating.

Your baby card is so cute. I love that little image you coloured so nicely. Saw that cute paper at my LSS.
