Hello everyone, I hope you all had a good week!
It’s Friday again and time for a new challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend!!
The theme for this two weeks is................
Blue, Buttons and Bling!!!
So here is my card to show you!
I normally find it difficult to make boy cards and to use buttons! I hardly EVER use buttons. I just can’t think of a way to arrange them in a creative way I like!
But with this card I managed pretty well!
I used an old Sugar Nellie stamp and colored it with the following Copics:
E00, E21 and R20 - for the baby’s skin
B05, B02 and B000 - for the baby’s nappy and the blue lines of his hat.
Y15, Y11 and Y00 - for the yellow on his hat.
G17, G14 and G12 - for the flowers on his hat.
W3 - for a shadow around the stamp.
I found a few new ideas for buttons and I think this one looks best!
Punching holes in the paper, then putting the ribbon through and make a knot.
And for the finishing touch, I put buttons onto every second knot.
I wrote “It’s a Boy” in a dark blue color, on a light blue card stock, and then stuck it on a yellow piece of paper.
This is a little squirrel I cut out of some of the paper.
Please go and take a look at Stampin for the Weekend, look at all the beautiful DT cards and see if you can take part in our challenge!
