Flamingo baby girl card

Last week our neighbours became parents of a baby girl for the first time!
There was a flamingo on the birth card so I was inspired to make a card with a flamingo too :)

I started stamping the flamingo with Altenew Rouge and Crimson ink and used the Wink of Stella to add a touch of glitter. For the legs I used Versafine Onyx black ink.
The sentiment is also stamped with Versafine Onyx black ink but here I added clear embossing powder on top of it.

The background is created with the halftone stencil from Altenew and I used the same Altenew colors as at the flamingo.

Next I mounted the flamingo and sentiment on a piece of gold glitter paper and added a gold ribbon in the middle of it to finish the card.

Now the only thing I need to do is write a text on the card and give it to our neighbours. Hopefully they like this handmade card :)

CAS(E) this Sketch #288

My husband is on a business trip this weekend so I wanted to make him a 'thinking of you' card. I'm sure he'll love it!

Thinking of you card

First I die cut the butterfly from Concord & 9th and colored the left part with Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover distress ink.
Next I blended the same 2 colors on a small piece of cardstock and sprayed this with shimmer spray to add a little bit of sparkle.

Then I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black and heat set this with clear embossing powder.

Finally I assembled the card and used a black fineliner to create a border.

Baby elephant card

Time for another baby card again. I love making baby cards since there are some many cute baby stamp sets and dies. I absolutely love it!

So here is a card I made for a baby boy. It's a pretty quick card I made last week.
I started with partially embossing the background with the Little Dots stamp set from Nellie Snellen. 
Then I colored some cardstock with 4 different Altenew inks. I used the mini cubes from the Sea Shore cube set for this and die cut 4 elephants with the Jumbo Hugs dies from Clearly Besotted.

Next I stamped the sentiment with Pure Graphite from Altenew and used clear embossing powder to heat set this. In the picture it looks like black ink but it's actually a dark grey color.
To finish the card I used a ribbon to add that extra cuteness.
