PCCCS109 – Sweet Baby!

By | September 15, 2014

Happy Monday, hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather here was beautiful, cool mornings and pleasant sunny afternoons.

Below is the sketch for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch, boy was it hard for me to come up with an idea, then BAM – I had an idea.


First I needed to find the right piece of designer paper, since I wanted to use the baby theme, Lullaby Designer Series Paper was my choice.  Next, I pull together some various cardstock colors and got started.  Unfortunately, I was out of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock so I substituted Close to Cocoa (C2C), its nice when your stash has a nice variety of colors. The pieces of designer paper are adhered to the Whisper White background and a C2C piece punched with the Scallop Edge border punch separates the two. The banner is also C2C and embossed with the Decorative Dots folder, one of my favorites – versatile for a variety of themes, and backed with Stampin Dimensionals. Image of the cute Koala is on Whisper White and matted on Crisp Cantaloupe – the Project Like corner rounder soften the edges.  Blendabilites were used to color the cutie!, he is backed with Dimensionals.  The ticket is from the That’s the Ticket stamp set, stamped in Pistachio Pudding on Pistachio Pudding.  Cute punched heart is on the opposite corner.  The sentiment of “Sweet baby” is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and cut out with paper snips. Crisp Cantaloupe is from the Hearts a Flutter Framelits, can never have to many hearts when talking about babies!  Card is finished with some Candy Dots and vintage Whisper White ribbon.



Thank you for taking the time to stop by today, hope you enjoyed my card. Remember to stop by the PCC blog to see their design teams card’s and cards from other crafters like myself.  Click on the sketch for a direct link.

    Karen, Super cute baby card! The colors are one of my favorite combos for baby girls (and as a young girl my colors were minty green & pink in my bedroom). I love the Koala. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Craft Crew and you’ll be on our Featured Artisan blog post for Card Sketch 109.
