A Life of Dante
It must be in the air, but lately all my friends are having baby boys…! :-) And even the friends of friends!!! Hence the reason why I have been busy making baby boy’s cards…;-)
Grunts: The American Combat Soldier in Vietnam
I have recently purchased some DCWV paper (Citrus) and, despite the fact that it is not specific for babies, it has some really nice papers in it with soft colours! So, the DCWV papers are the 2 top layers (the one underneath the image and the one with the ribbon around it). But recently I have also bought some October Afternoon (Ducks in a row) paper as I have seen so many lovely creations being made with it…! And the OA paper is the one underneath all the rest….;-P Isn’t it just fab!!! And, may I add, just so delicate for a little baby’s card….

The ribbons come from my local sewing shop and the little buttons on the bottom right are from Craty Buttons.IMG_2850

But let’s get to the bit I like the most…. The handmade paper flowers on the left hand side!!! I have been looking at a few tutorials on YouTube about making flowers yourself with punches and I then came across this Stampin’ Up! punch, which has complimentary stamps….WOW!!! You can stamp the flowers and then punch them out!!! I know you could simply cut them out by hand, but it would take a long time and I am not very good at cutting by hand…:-( So, when I had the opportunity to buy the punch and the stamps together, I grabbed it as fast as I could!!! lol!!! And these are the very first flowers I created with them….I guess, not too bad as a first attempt!! 😉
