Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m sharing a set of baby cards with you. In between of creating for my design team assignments, I also try to sneek in some stash busting projects and this is one of them.
See, on this card set I´ve used quite old pre-dry-embossed card bases from my older stash. I wanted to make them look a little bit more colorful so I inked the dry-embossed areas with Distress Inks in blue, pink and yellow tones and then started rreating the cards from there.
I then added a ribbon bow onto each card – I have so much ribbon stored in my studio! You really have no idea.. So cards are a good way to bust that pile a bit.
This card had a pink organza ribbon going across the card. On top of that I added a polka dotted paper (available at Elizabeth Craft Designs – see product links at the end of this post) and a stamped Stampin´ Up banner sentiment. I inked the sentiment in the same Disttress Ink tone that I used for the background. The little monster/creature in the middle of the card is a stamp by Starving Artistamps. They have the cutest creature stamps!! I bought those stamps years ago and still love using them!
The image is colored with a water tank brush and Tonic Studios Nuvo Watercolour Pencils. I also added googly eyes to the image for a fun detail. And the tiny heart, well it´s a negative piece/leftover from this card. I saved them and am now using them everywhere :). Talk about recycling leftover pieces!!
The blue card is the same, like the pink one, just in blue tones.
That´s it for today. I hope you enjoyed this stash busting project. There is still so much stash to be busted 😉 that I will probably need to make these a regular posting theme here on the blog..
