An “All About Babies” Card

Hello everyone this week I made two cards!
My first one was an easel card, and then a baby card.
A few weeks ago I made a Christmas card and to my surprise, I won The Corrosive Challenges Blog, and this is what I won:
3 digis from Phindy's place
2 packs of stickers
A pack of brads
A Guest Designer spot on the DT for August.
Yeah!! I’m thrilled to be GDT for a month.
The theme for this weeks challenge is “All About Babies”.

This was so easy, since we have so many babies in our house!

Some time ago I won a $20 voucher at Sew Many cards and digital stamps, but that was quite some time ago. I never had pencils to colour Digi stamps so I never used the voucher.
(now I have Promarkers)
A few weeks ago I ordered some rubber stamps from Whiff of Joy and was hoping it would be here in time for this weeks baby’s challenge!
Unfortunately they haven’t arrived yet! I was very disappointed but my mother reminded me about my Sew Many Cards voucher. I could buy seven Digi stamps and “Tayla Stork” is one of them.
I struggled a bit not to let the ink run with my Promarkers but after a few attempts, one turned out okay. I also heat it with my mom’s hair dryer, before I coloured it!
If you have a secret to keep digit stamps from running when coloured with Promarkers or Copics, PLEASE share it with me!

I used the flowing Promarkers for this stamp:

Dusky Pink – for the body of the duck and mouth of the little animal
Apple, Rose Pink and yellow – for the Duck’s hat
Yellow - for the ribbon on the duck neck, Welcome baby tag and duck’s Bick
Prussian – for one of the patches on the duck
Gold – for the feet of the duck and the baby in the parcel
Sky blue – for the baby bag and a patch on the duck
Cool Grey 1 – for a shadow around the stamp.

Here I wrote Bundle of Joy.
I though it will fit the card well!

I cut out little circles of images with names and stuck them all over the card, which gave the card a real “All About Babies”-feeling!!
It was very easy to make a bundle of joy card since we already had 8 bundles of joy in our house!
Here is a picture of our newest bundle of joy.

Michael is really growing up so fast!
He is 6 months and is so sweet.

When ever you smile at him, he smiles back at you.

Michael is also now starting to play with toys - so cute!!

Three of the other Bundles of Joy in our house.
David (3 1/2 years), Andrew (5 years) and Little Daniel who turned two today!

So as I said, it is so easy to make a baby card, with babies all over the house.

I used the Friday Sketchers Challenges sketch for this card:

This beautiful sketch is by Tanja from Germany and I just love it!
I also took part in the following challenges:

Digi Doodles Shop Best – Punch of Cute Me
Totally Gorjuss – Baby-Baby
Simon Says Challegnes - Going Dotty
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Cow Girl Sunday - Animals and Bugs
And now I’m off to celebrate my brother’s birthday!

Have a blessed week

  14. Heidi-Mari this is a fantastic card. I love the image and all the details you have added like the little image buttons. Thank you for sharing your card with us at CSSC and we hope to see you again next week. :-) xx
    I don't know why your digi images are running when you colour them with Promarkers. I print mine out on a deskjet printer using a bright white coated card 200gsm suitable for laser printers (not glossy). I know it has to be the right paper and ink (water based) to use with promarkers. You could try it with different papers and see what happens.

  15. So sweet and adorable :o)
    Thank you for entering in our challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best.
    All the best, Jóna

  16. Hello Heidi-Mari loved reading your lovely post and what cute little brothers you have! Love your beautiful baby card cute image coloured beautifully, so much gorgeous detail, pretty dsp and ribbon.
    Sorry to hear you are having problems with your digital images running, I use X-Press It Blending Card or SU Cardstock, sometimes it helps to print the images in advance and leave for a while. It may also be that you are blending too much and the card you are using cannot absorb all the ink, look at the back of your image see how much ink has come through. Hope this helps.

    Congratulations on your GDT WELL DONE!
