Baby Oh Baby!

I find myself in need of a baby shower card and so this time I pulled out this stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Baby Oh Baby! I thought it a perfect set for making my card. I can see making this for a Mother's Day card for the mom-to-be too!


Since the happy couple are expecting a boy I went with a lot more blue in the design. My background was made just using the Baby Oh Baby sentiment repeatedly in various colors. I then did some distressing with blue ink around the edges. The Mom To Be sentiment was die cut out with a double stitched circle die from Cottage Cutz and again I did some distressing with blue ink on it.

The young lady image was colored with a combination of Copics and Sharpies. I did no special blending but simply colored in the image. And, the background was stamped with various ink colors using Gina K. Design inks. After I had the young lady colored I fussy cut it and placed it on the background.

I am entering this in the following challenge:
Double D's Challenge

Well, I must confess I am in a stamping funk. For some reason I have lost my mojo but am mainly stamping according to my needs. So maybe that shows in my work but I still think this looks fairly nice anyway.

I hope all of you are having a great week. Hard to believe it is Wednesday already. I guess they call that "Hump" day. When you get through with Wednesday you are over the hump. LOL

Thanks so much for visiting. You have a great evening.

God bless,
Verna

Well Verna I think it looks EXTRA nice, and I love how you've created this fun background with just the simple effects you did. It's perfect with the expectant Mom, and your coloring there looks great to me. I pretty much always work at making cards I need for something,unless I get the time to participate in a challenge. Well done! TFS & Hugs (PS...you have inspired me on some of the GK stuff...I bought the new inks...and then got the cubes!!!)

This is such a sweet image and I love the flowers in her hair. Your background is just great and so clever and the coloring is lovely. Mojo has a way of coming and going so I'm sure it will come back. Sometimes life just takes over for a while. Look through your supplies and visit Pinterest and you will be inspired again.

Wow, this is a gorgeous shower card. I love the colors and the details.

Leslie Miller said...

Interesting how you say you've lost your mojo as it's not the least bit evident in your stamping. I need to focus on some particular card needs, too -- mostly anniversary. This is the sweetest thing. I love how you did the background.
