Inkspirations Colour Challenge #20 - Hello Baby

Hi all,

(If you're looking for my ESAD Blog Hop post, please scroll down).

Delicious! I had planned to create something else, but I needed a baby card in a hurry, so I might revisit my other idea later - these colours are really versatile. Make sure you pop over to check out all the other entries, and there's still plenty of time for you to join in if you haven't already!
Here is my card:

I have used the lovely new Fox and Friends stamp set, which I love. I have it in the clear-mount option, which is fabulous. I have stamped the animals in Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip and layered onto Brocade Blue circles. The lion's mane and face have been cut out and the mane has been layered on dimensionals.

The greeting is from the new Teeny Tiny Sentiments (again, so versatile and cute) which I have stamped onto a tag cut using the Lots of Tags die in my Big Shot. I have trimmed around the perforations on the vanilla tag and layered it onto a Chocolate Chip one, and secured with a Brocade Blue brad. There is also some paper piercing along the edge of the ribbon.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Fox & Friends, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Cardstock: Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, Brocade Blue, Choc Chip Patterns DSP
Ink: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Brocade Blue 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Brocade Blue brad, Scallop Edge punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, Lots of Tags Sizzlit, Big Shot, paper piercer, mat pack, dimensionals.

Hope you are having a fantastic Easter, I will get around to loading up my Easter creations here soon!

  2. Very Cute, Thanks for playing this week at Inkspirations.

    Teneale :)

  3. HI Genelle,

    this is lovely. I especially like the combo of the round images with the rectangle card, and the little details like the piercing and the tag. Hmm I might have to get those tag dies....


  4. Oh wow, Creamy Caramel works really well for the animals! Wouldn't have thought to use it - thanks for the inspiration! :D


  5. Very cute! I love your creation!

  6. Haven't had time to comment before now, have just been madly blog hopping LOL. This is such a cute card. You've made great use of the colours. I wasn't keen on this set at first but that little monkey is really growing on me (I still love 'Wild About You'). The whole layout, the gorgeous blue ribbon, the scallop border, just lovely!

  7. Hi Genelle
    Thanks so much for popping by my blog again the other day, it was lovely to hear from you. I'm sorry I haven't visited sooner, life has been so busy lately, blog-surfing has taken a back burner.

    I just love this card and also some of your other challenge cards for Keesh. They are all really lovely and this one makes great use of the new SU set.

    Your ESAD blog hop post was also great. I love the colours you used, they work so well with that stamp set.

    Have a wonderful week.
