Baby cards

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing a set of simple, but colorful, baby cards I recently created.

I´ ve used a retired rainbow die by Elizabeth Craft Designs to create the rainbows and the clouds. Other than that, the stamps I used are by Klartext.

I also incorporated bits from my older stash to these cards, like the stickers and rub-ons.

For decoration on the clouds I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in blue and pink.

Here and there I also used older Stampin´ Up! stamps to add to the Klartext stamped sentiment.

This is all for today. I hope your day has been a good one! I have plenty of crafty projects to share the next days too, so be sure to come back for more later this week :).

Take care,

Welcome baby

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am sharing a rainbow themed baby boy card with you. I think it turned out pretty cute :).

I used a Elizabeth Craft Designs (retired though) Rainbow die cut die set with clouds and rainbow, then added some Doodlebug Design glitter stickers (duck and flowers) and Basic Grey yellow alpha stickers. For the stamped sentiment I used a Stampin´ Up! sentiment with Distress Oxide stamp ink in peacock feathers tone.

I think the card turned out super cute in the end. And very clean and simple in style. I am really liking the CAS style atm.! All my minialbums also turn out that way. Sometimes it´ s good to take a break from mixed media style too. I am not the type of person who sticks to one style all the time, I like to jump from one thing to another and then back again.

I hope you liked what you saw – and maybe even got inspired abit! See you later this week with more fun posts!

Take care,

Baby card for twins

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! Today I´m stopping by to share a twin baby card with you. The person receiving this card does not like pink nor blue (no traditional baby colours), so I went with neutrals this time.

I used plenty of older papers from my stash and added some cute stamped and fussy cut elephants (stamp by Starving Artistamps) to the card. The white dots are done with Nuvo Drops – love the basic white colour so much! Might need to go and buy another bottle of that goodness!

This card is bigger in size (A5) and has very basic elements on it. I wanted to keep the card simple and clean in design and figured that the polka dot papers add the necessary cuteness factor to a baby themed card.

I hope you had a lovely Mother´s Day. Wishing you a great start into a new week. I have been back to work for a week now and it´s still very strange and I find it hard to adjust to the new normal. I noticed that grocery shopping and shopping in general is not much fun these days. So was happy to go straight back home from work, without any stops in between, unless totally necessary.

Getting used to this “new normal” after such a long period of social distancing felt akward past week. I also felt totally overwhelmed meeting people again, it kinda drained me out, to be honest. Maybe the new week will be different? We will see…

Happy crafting,

Cute Baby Cards

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!!

And on the yellow card I did the same steps, except the paper on the background is by Magnolia and I used another Stampin´ Up sentiment and an old Close To My Heart giraffe for stamping.

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..

Happy crafting,

Sweet Baby – Tonic Studios

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Today I´m stopping by to share a baby card in green tones.

For this card I used the Tonic Studios Garden Gate Layering Die Set with some papers from my older stash. I chose a selection of different green tones, an organza ribbon and some Stampin´ Up! stamps as well as chipboard baby shoes by Wycinanka. For decoration I added some Nuvo Crystal Glaze with Nuvo Crystal Could Circles Pure Sheen Confetti and Bottle Green Nuvo Crystal Drops.

For die cutting I used the Garden Gate die cut dies and cut them both from green and white paper and layered them on top of each other.

It was fun to create a monochromatic card for a change and this was just warming up – be sure to come back tomorrow for another fun “welcome baby”-themed card! See you then!

xoxo, Sanna
