Baby Boy

Hi, I know of a few babies due to be born soon, so I thought I'd better start a few cards for the occasion!

I've used Papertrey Ink's Bundle of Love stamps for this card, and fussy cut the images. I coloured the stork with Prismacolor pencils. The oval is sponged with antique linen distress ink and the ink for the baby and the letters is Versacolor.

Ashley at Capture the Moment has a tutorial on embossing alphabet and numeral diecuts. She has some great ideas! My letters are nice and shiny IRL.

There's a Make It Monday challenge on the blog. The theme this week is to use embossed alpha diecuts and at least 1 Papertrey Ink product on your project.

I'm also going to enter the challenge at  Addicted to Stamps and Morewhere the theme is an easy one...Anything Goes!

Now I need to make one for a girl just in case!!

Materials used: Papertrey Ink Bundle of Love stamp set; Spellbinders oval & scalloped oval dies; Memory Box alphabet dies; Swiss dots embossing folder; Prismacolor pencils; distress ink; Versacolor ink pad; Versamark ink and clear embossing powder; stickles.

Thanks for visiting :)

Lots of layers. Looks good. Thanks for the link to the tutorial. Just had a look and never thought of embossing numbers and letters. Have a couple of anniversary cards to make this month so will have a go I think. Hugs Mrs A.
