All For Friends - Baby Boy Card

Hi all,

Hope all's well with you all and you're having a good Bank Holiday weekend :) After doing a little blog hopping for some inspiration, came across a lovely Baby card by a fellow demonstrator, Julie and decided to christen my Hostess Level 2 set from the new Mini Catalogue called "All For Friends".

Have made a baby boy card, but seeing as I really enjoyed this one, I think I'll make a girl version too! :) Watch this space...

Anyway, decided to use my "Queue Up" stamp set for the background of the card, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up and stamp across the card. Stamped the babygrows three times onto Patterns Designer Series Paper and again onto Whisper White cardstock so that I could cut and adhere to the babygrows. I do love the effect of paper piecing, and the Designer Series papers are just gorgeous - something I don't use a lot of! lol. Anyway, did a bit of drawing on the Whisper White cardstock using the Stampin' Write Marker in Ballet Blue and with the Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen in White onto the Ballet Blue cardstock. Popped all three babygrows on dimensions and voila :) Really pleased with this card, and can't wait to make the girl version soon.

Here's the card I've been waffling about:

Stamps: Queue Up (Hostess Level 3), All For Friends (Hostess Level 2) and Nursery Necessities.
Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Whisper White. Patterns Designer Series Paper - Bashful Blue.
Ballet Blue and Bashful Blue.
Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Word Window Punch, 3/16" Gingham Ribbon - Light Blue, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Stampin' Write Marker - Ballet Blue, Uni-Ball Signo Gel Pen - White, SU Bone Folder, Paper Snips and 3D dimensionals.

Thanks for coming by, have a good day.

Bye for now,
