Baby Bunting : )

Good morning crafty peeps and thank you for stopping by today.

I’ve got another baby card to share and it’s this one ….

… here.

I wanted it to look like a chest of drawers so I used an outside edge from Tonic Topnote Trellis to cut the ‘legs’on the left hand side then made little drawers.

I think it helps to ink the edges on something like this, even though I don’t usually do it.
I used Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The bunting is cut from the Rococo Petite Baby Balloons die and stuck together.
And the paper I used is from the Nitwits Country Meadow download.

And the main element is the little cutie from Adorable Elephants.
The little hearts and clouds are cut from the Rococo Baby Nursery Mobile die and the sentiment is the Miniature Moments – New Baby.

And that’s the card done.

I hope you like it and if your dies have arrived, I hope you’re having as much fun with them as I did.
Have a lovely day and crafty hugs to all xxx

Baby Blues

Good morning crafty peeps and I hope that you are well today.

Have you been watching the Tonic baby dies shows? Aren’t they the sweetest ever?
I’ll share the cards I made for the show with you over the next few days and hope you like them.

So here’s the first – I really love this colour palette.

I used the Baby Rococo Petite – Rocking Horse and cut it several times before sticking it onto several layers cut from the Tonic Sew Pretty - Have a Beautiful Day Circle Frame Die set.
Hope you can see it in the picture here ….

… and here.

The sentiment is made from the ‘negative’ of the Rococo Petite Baby Balloons and Miniature Moments – New Baby dies. They are far too nice to throw away!!

I also used some of the dies from the Card Blank Layering – Harrop set.
They are awesome

So that’s the first card to share and I’ll be back tomorrow with another one.
Until then, thank you for stopping by, enjoy your day and crafty hugs to all xxx

Sew Pretty Rocker Card

Good morning lovely peeps – hope eveybody is well today.
Dopey here forgot to post my last Sew Pretty card last week!!!

So it's here now and …

… this it is.

It’s a little rocker card and I used nice bright zingy springy colours for this one.

I used Tonic Sew Pretty - Have a Beautiful Day Circle Frame Die set and Tonic Pinhole Nesting Die - Layering Circle Die Set and the sentiment is from Sew Pretty - Home Sweet Home Oval Frame set.

I said yesterday that the Entwinig Trellis Bellus Buttercup was one of my favourite sets and I’ve used the flowers from that set on here – I love the shape of these, I really do.   I also added a little pink ‘stamen’ which is from the Delicate Daisy Entwining Trellis set and last but not least, a little sprig of  Tonic Studios Frond Finesse which is so fine and delicate.

A little bow, a button and some bling and we are all done – a very easy peasy card.

Have a lovely day and thank you for stopping by.

Hugs to all xxx
