I trust you are all well... if you are in Cape Town...I hope you are keeping warm and snug...there's an icy wind out there...
Last weekend we had a baby shower for my second cousin's daughter... she is having a baby girl... of course, trust me to wait half an hour before we leave to realize that the gift was not wrapped and that we needed a card for the prezzie too..
Anyway.. I had treated myself to a die with baby clothes and a pram n bib die so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try them out... of course being a girl... I had to cut out the die cuts in pink...
The background was stamped with one of my favorite Penny Black background stamps..in pink or course....... I layered plain pink and floral pink for the border - also pushed through my Vagabond to create a scalloped border.
I also embossed the baby grow with one of my Sizzix embossing folders - I used the argyle section of the folder ... and think the grower came out rather cute... to finish the grower I added some pearls for buttons and mounted them with mirror tape to create that 3D look. oh yes... I just hand wrote Baby and ABC on the bib and the bottle...in purple
This one really only took me about 15 minutes... and I also used up some of my off cuts which are at hand - I oganised them by color a few months ago.. and I must admit... they do save time when I am looking for a small off cut of a specific color. I will try to post my color co ordinated off cut drawers sometime... just wish I could find some drawers like these for my scrap book off cuts... there seems to be more and more of them after each project... LOL
Have a splendid weekend... and I hope to load something again early next week.
