I wanted to do a couple of cards with Eline's babies, I sorted out my papers, stamps and coloured the images and decided to find a couple of challenges I could enter them into. Fussy & Fancy and Clean & Simple were the two that caught my eye. One would naturally go for Fussy and Fancy for the baby girl and Clean and Simple for the baby boy. Not being one to do things the easy way I decide to do the opposite - the boy for the Fussy and Fancy the girl for CAS. Here is the fussy and fancy boy card.
The blue spot paper is from my bit box, the blue and yellow behind the images is from one of Eline's cutting books which I've had for quite a while. The images are coloured with distress inks, cut with round nestabilities. The top border is cut with an EK Success punch and I added pearls from the Hobbby House. The leaves are cut with a Woodward punch and the stamens with Leone Em and Woodware punches. I added a ribbon and charm from my stash, stamped Baby with Stampendous alphabet stamps,cut them out and added them with foam tape.
This done I shall now attempt the Clean and Simple baby girl card.
Hope the weather is better where you are than it is here - typical weekend weather, i wouldn't mind but I'm going to a Schutzenfest tomorrow.
Schutzen means protect and Fest firm or solid - what they mean when they are put together - I haven't a clue, but I'm going and I suppose I'll find out when I get there.
