Precious Baby

Flowerful Friday greetings, friends!  More stamping from before vacation... I don't even need a baby card at the moment, but this little buggy full of flowers is too pretty to be denied.  It's one of my new Power Poppy sets -- Precious Baby.  Adorable, and I do love baby cards!




Here's the particulars:  Stamped the buggy in Ranger Distress Tea Dye ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics.  The lattice oval was cut in white and then colored with an R30 Copic, brushing over it with the side of the marker to hit mostly the high spots so it has a somewhat shaded look.  Layered a Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die over that, and a La-La Land Random Flags Banner cut from lightly patterned designer paper.  I'll sum up all the ingredients in the recipe at the end.

Inside is simple, decorated only with some of the hearts that popped out of the banner.




I should be tending to more immediate card needs, but sometimes it's fun to make a card "just because", isn't it?  Let's do this again soon.  Take care!



Stamps:  Power Poppy Precious Baby clear set  Paper:  X-Press It Blending Card, other white, wood grain white, Prima Sweet Fairy designer paper  Ink:  Ranger Distress Tea Dye, SU Close to Cocoa, Copics for coloring  Accessories:  Marianne Designs Anja's Oval, Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, La-La Land Random Flags Banner

Such a beautiful Summertime baby card, Leslie. You looked like you had such a wonderful time creating your beauty. All the gorgeous coloring and die cut details are your creative signature, my friend. TFS Hugs...

Fabulous baby card. The baby buggy filled with flowers would be hard to resist coloring and your layering adds so much texture and dimension. I agree sometimes it is fun to make a card just for fun, and it is also nice to have a card ready to mail when you need it. Have a great weekend, my friend.

This is such a pretty card. Love the carriage filled with flowers and the cute banner dies. It's nice to have some cards on hand when the occasion presents itself. Have a great weekend.

Leslie, I know how much you enjoy making baby cards, and this one is gorgeous! Your colouring is fabulous, love how you applied the ink on the lattice oval, the little banner is just perfect, and the little heart is just the sweetest to complete this. It's always nice to have these types of cards on hand for when such occasion arises. I also have this image stamped out, just haven't had a chance to work on cards this week. Thanks for sharing, enjoy your weekend.

So adorable and well-done, Leslie! Yep, it's very fun to make cards "just because." Those are my favorite ones!

Margaret said...

so cute. I love all those die cuts you used.

so precious, it has a Victorian look to it, beautiful coloring and just love the way you layered your framing die cuts, and sweet banner!

Colleen Dietrich said...

You did a great job coloring that baby buggy, Leslie. I've yet to try the no-line coloring. It rather intimidates me! You always nail it though. :-)

Teri Smith said...

So very pretty Leslie. I've yet to try no-line colouring as I need much much much more practice with shading. Copics intimidate me at this point. lol I had such a pleasant surprise when I opened my email this a.m. & there was one from Goldens & Gardens. Loved the pictures. Thanks.

How darling is this! One of my favorite banners you use on cards Leslie, its super cute. I like the layer on layer of die cuts with this little carriage. Just darling.

CherylQuilts said...

Ah, Leslie, this is one darling baby card! I too have this set and need several baby cards myself. I can hardly decide which image to use, but this is so beautifully colored and is making me lean toward this one (for the girls). Just love the layered dies you've used and how you've colored the bottom one. Sweet banner dies across finish it perfectly along with the darling hearts! This is going to be loved!! Hugs!
