In a "Baby" Mood.

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great day! I had all the intentions to make a post yesterday, but to be honest after I watched the news and heard about the earthquake in Chile I felt so sad and even sick. I called my family in Peru and Thank God they are fine, just scared.
Sorry if you came here and didn't find anything, but now that you are here, you are going to enjoy some pretty baby cards! I always enjoy creating Baby Cards, they are always so sweet and delicate. I created these cards with Rupa's newest set Oh Baby! (Gina K. Designs), and also joining GinaK. Illustrator's Blog Hop, creating a card using 2 of the newest Spring colors (CS, ribbon or buttons) and newest sets released.
I really love this set, 17 images and sentiments that can make you create the most beautiful baby cards!
So without any further ado, here are my cards:

It's a girl: For this card I used Innocent Pink CS and a Lemon Drop Button. This is the first time I created a Onesie Card. It was a fun card to make. The bib image was stamped in White PL CS and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with OMS. I added few tiny pearls and some Diamond Stickles. I also added pearls around and some stitches.

Inside the card:

Cute as a button: For this card I created a BG using the button stamp onto the Innocent Pink CS. I added a stripe and embossed it (Swiss Dots), sponged the borders and also added some stitches. I cut little squares using Square Nestabilities (White, Innocent Pink, Lemon Drop and Creme de Menthe). Last, I added 3 buttons (some embroidery floss attached {MFW Challenge}) from the Spring Button Collection.



Rocking Horse: For this card I started with White PL as a card base. I used the sketch form Card patterns. I added to my card base a piece of Ocean Mist, White. I added some Lemon Drop stripes and also embossed them (Swiss Dots) and sponged the borders, stitches were added. The image was stamped in White PL CS in Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with OMS. It was matted with Lemon Drop and Ocean Mist CS and stitches were added. As a embellishment I added a paper flower and in the center I added a Ocean Mist Button. As petals I added some scraps of MS Silk Ribbon. Also tiny pearls were added in the corner.




Inside the card:
It's a Boy! I really love this card. I started with Creme de Menthe for my card base. I added a smaller piece of White CS and Lemon drop CS (embossed with Swiss Dots) After that I added a piece of embossed Creme de Menthe, stitches added. The cute Teddy Bear was stamped in a piece of White CS using Chocolate Craft Ink and heat embossed. Then I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils, I colored and extra head and feet and added for more dimension. Creme de Menthe and ocean Mist button were added. I cut the cute Star Tag using my Cricut Machine and George Cartridge, the tag was attached to the ribbon with some embroidery floss (MFW Challenge)

WOW! I feel tired already, LOL. Hope you enjoy all my cards. If I skipped something and you need extra info, please let me know.

Have a great day!!
