TGIF everyone! It will be a short post today. I am SICK.....head cold, non stop coughing and probably a touch of the flu. Not enough to keep me down, just enough to keep me running in slow motion though. Thank you so much for all of your kind words to my postings. I love to hear your thoughts and that I inspire you. What a great thing to be able to do.....inspire someone!
Well on to today's post. These are some more little baby cards that I'm going to be giving to my niece once she has that sweet baby girl. I know she will appreciate some cards that can be used for thank you's, etc. Patterned paper from Making Memories Garden Party collection, ribbon from Papertrey Ink, Palette Black Noir Ink Pad. Copic markers and stamp images from Ellen's online store. I thought this card would be cute for Chelsey to send out with an updated baby photo. It seems most baby cards are geared only for thank you notes, but this one could be used that entire first year for almost anything. The image is called Clothesline and is by Karen Lockhart. Sentiment is from A Muse.
This card could be used in the same nature as the card above. Baby themed but generic enough in nature that it could be used for anything baby related. I'm particularly hoping to receive lots of updated photos of that sweet little bundle so maybe if I give her lots of cards AND postage stamps.....with all of the envies addressed to me..........she'll get the hint! This image is another Karen Lockhart stamp called Sweet Pea in Pod. One tip on Copic markers....when coloring images that are basically one color....like peas......select 2-3 colors right next to each other on the color chart. These markers will be just a shade or two darker or lighter and you can get some great shading without a stark contrast.
Okay, I'm outta here for today my beautiful blogging buddies! Coming soon: my new Inspiration Station, some step by step Copic coloring (just to refresh) and some Crafty Secrets prize drawings.
