Hello Baby


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I have a quick notecard for you today; I needed a baby card, and I just got this hostess set called Time for Tags, so I put it to use:


The Addicted to CAS Challenge this week is "plaid":


I pulled out a piece of Blushing Bride gingham DSP and diecut it with a Stitched Label die, then put my watercolored tag on top:


I stamped the image with Stazon ink, watercolored it with reinkers and an aquapainter; I added a little Soft Seafoam watercolor border as well as some polka dots to the background. I then embellished my card a wee bit with some Soft Seafoam diecut buttons from the Arts and Crafts dies.  I am so used to using Blends, I realize my watercoloring is a little uneven!!  But hopefully the recipient won't mind!  Thanks for popping in today!

Just a little fall scenery from our yard:



Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I've not seen anyone using this set yet LeAnne but you have done a wonderful job with this cute card to welcome a baby. I love that gingham label and the way you coloured your giraffe layer, and the buttons are the perfect finishing touch! Vicky x

Such a sweet baby card! And your watercoloring looks great to me! I used to love to decorate my house with bittersweet that I have growing around my yard. But ever since I adopted my kitties I'm afraid to have the real thing in the house so I have to make do with the fake stuff! Your picture really shows the vibrant colors perfectly!
