Bundle of Joy




I was in a coloring mood yesterday so I made up a few baby cards with this adorable giraffe image from SU!'s Bundle of Joy set. I love images like this because they don't take very long to color and I can still mass produce them easily for my card stash. I used SU! markers and the Cool Caribbean ink pad with an aquapainter since there is no CC marker. Then I glitterfied the spots with SU! Dazzling Diamonds fine glitter. Cardstock colors are Caribbean Blue, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana. Patterned paper is from SU! also. Sentiment is from Papertrey and baby letters are the SU! Doodle Alphabet. I love alphabet stamps!!!

Tip of the day: Use a light colored marker to outline your colored images. I used Barely Banana and Bashful Blue around the little giraffes. This makes your images just pop off the white cardstock.

Love your tip of the day. I love that look and always figured it was a little bit of watercoloring around the image. HOw quick and easy it will be to outline with a marker.

So sweet, I love to do that little bit of shading around the image! Looking forward to hearing about you selling your cards, I do too, and wonder if we do things similarly...

You are just so clever. I love your cards and designs. I like how you show how many cards you can make using same stamps, cardstock and colours. TFS. You are truly inspirational.
