Baby Carriage 09718
To make my Baby Girl Carriage card, I stamped the sweet old fashioned carriage, colored w/ Copics, over stamped w/ Versafine then die cut w/ a double stitched square die. I had to do a little out of the box to keep from cutting off a couple of areas. A lime green mat was added & I attached to a piece of fun foam to elevate it a bit. The white layer was embossed & the Baby die was die cut once of the pink paisley paper & once out of white, which I colored to match, then stacked together a little offset. I tied a tiny little bow out of narrow pink ribbon & attached it to a die cut lime bow (from the Baby set dies) for my “fabric” addition.

Baby Lamb 09636
To make my Baby Lamb card, I put the oh so sweet image into my Misti, stamped it w/ Memento, colored it w/ Copics then over stamped it w/ Versafine. When I was coloring the little lamb w/ the cool grays, I thought she was looking a little too cool so I added a little warm gray to give her a little depth & warmth & added some earth tones to her face. A little Wink of Stella was added to her bow and also the dark pink trim on the heart.

The little piece of muslin was stamped w/ the button corner image using part of the Kaleidacolor ink & the rhubarb ink, attached to piece of heavy white paper, trimmed w/ pinking shears then attached to stitched square piece (this was a rectangle but after cutting it, I moved one end up to shorten it into a square & cut that end again).  The greeting flag was just a stitched rectangle & I took the corner of the rectangle die, turned 45 degrees to cut the notch for the flag tail.

Baby Nest 08666
The idea for my baby card came from some paint chips I had in my stash. I thought the colors would be perfect for a baby girl card. With the colors in hand, I picked out the closest colors of Copic markers & refills & loaded a mini mister w/ isopropyl alcohol & spritzed a plain white panel w/ it. No need to use your Copic blender refill for this when the alcohol will do the same basic job at much less cost. With the paper wet, I dropped the blender colors here & there & let the colors spread, spritzing w/ more alcohol when needed. When the colors looked like I wanted, I dropped a few droplets of alcohol to make the paler circles. When it dried, I die cut it, put it in my Misti, stamped w/ Memento, added just a touch more color to the image, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I used a white gel pen to go over the eggs. The Congratulations was die cut out of another paint chip & I shortened it by snipping off part of the word & repositioning the curlicue tail of the G. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. I also used the exact same colors of refills for the background.

Old Barn cu 08678 Weekly-Favorite  x3  best-of-2016-scs-smaller
This card is continuing the Serendipity Challenge Theme this month of circles/dots. To make this card, I started by making a watercolor background w/ a series of washes for the ground, sky & hillside in the back right.When dry, I die cut it, placed it my Misti & stamped the barn scene w/ Memento. 

Old Barn 08674
Since the colors for the barn would be darker, I just added some detail watercolor on top of the barn. It turned out to be a little darker than I wanted, so I stamped the barn roof & front again on a separate piece of watercolor paper, used Brushos on the roof (to get the rusty look), painted the front, then paper pieced them on top of the original. Then I die cut w/ a pierced circle, added the white circle & put them back on top for a sort of spotlight look. A narrow white frame & the die cut Hello were attached on top.

Her’s a look at the inside. The narrow strips were about all I had left from the piece so I stamped the barn scene using the lilac distress ink then added the greeting.
