What was on your workdesk wednesday in November 2013.
Well, there was babies, and mess. Let’s take a look…
Today I want to show you three baby cards, two which I made in November last year (november 2013), and one I made after 3rd of July, because I wanted to send them a birth announcement card but hadn’t yet congratulated them on their baby which was born in March! Ok, they didn’t have my adress so I got the announcement card from my mom, but better late wishes than none, right?
I am most pleased with the first two cards, although they took quite some time to make.
I’ll start with the one that has stamps from Designs by Ryn on them:
Dancing Faeries CM-M6 from Designs by Ryn
Acorn Faerie set CM-M12 from Designs by Ryn (used only the leaf and acorn)
The letters were made with a Joy Craft alphabet die
The baby stamp is from Stampinback: Sleeping baby.
Next is a card I made sort of simlutaneously. This is the birthannouncement card:
The stork is the logo of the city The Hague, where they live. The stork is also said to deliver the babies. The colours of the city are green and yellow, so they kept in style. I like how they made it a unique and personal card.
This is what I made, I didn’t make a winter scene although they have snow on the card, I made an autumn card as the baby was born in October.
I made this card with the same sleeping baby stamp, and stamps from Nonsequiturstamps – Plate 101 Trees, NSPL101.
A little bit of the process and What’s On Your Workdesk-ness:
On to the last card with the sleeping baby.
Used on the background and the center piece: Chocolate Baroque Floral Edges Unmounted Rubber stamp sheet – A5 Part Number UA5SP0416
The little butterfly is probably from one of the faeries or dragon sets from Chocolate Baroque
The text (barely readible on the photo) is from Sheena Douglas – Crafter’s Companion – A little bit magical – Knowledge
The fairy is from.. can’t remember. She’s got glossy accents on her wings.
I really liked the first two cards, and might make more of these. Use the colours of the birth announcement card, or the season in which the baby is born or other elements that I can reuse.
