New Baby Card

 This is the card that I have made ready for my Grandsons arrival.
He is due today, but looks like he is going to keep us waiting a few more days.

The top photo is of the box all closed up with the card inside

 This is the front of the card, all the images and backing papers are from Crafters Companion Humphrey's Corner CDs 
 These two photos show the the card open
 In the photo below you can see the first two sections, I had to take the toppers into another graphic program to change the sizes a little, but this is very easy to do with CC CDs
 Here we have the next two sections of the card, I do love the high chair and crib toppers so much

 In these two photos you can see the back four panels/
I have also added a few bows and flowers to finish each panel off
 In the bottom photo you can see how the card looks open from above
 This last photo is the back of the card,this was where I chose to put our message
Pam has done a great tutorial on how to make this card you can see it on her blog here along with a few others
Thank you Pam

Stamp N Doodle Challenge

 Stamp n Doodle have a new challenge this week theme is 
I have been luck enough to be chosen to be on their DT, Thank you girls
This is my first DT Card for them I am looking forward to having lots of fun over the next few weeks and getting to know the other DT members

This image will be available in the STORE soon
I have coloured the image with with Spectrum Noire pens .
I have used my ink dusters around the edge of the design, At first I did it very faint but the more I looked the more I thought it needed adding to, I was going for a very shabby look around the edges , so decided to add some more Ochre and Green coming into the middle
The flowers are from wild orchid and the Sentiment is from TLC links in my side bar .
It says wishing you all of the ups and none of the downs, I though it would go great with the swing
Thanks for looking don't forget to pop over to Stamp n Doodle and play along with our challenge

The cameo on the bely is a button with the back cut of and stuck down with pinflair glue.
The flowers have beeen ion my craft box for years since i first started crafting, they are very small perfect for this dress.
I then jazzed the dress up with some pretty sparkly stones

Dress Form Tag

Just loving the dress forms that are about these days.
This one is an SVG file from JennM Found it on the web, So would like to say thank you to Jenn

I cut it out on my Cricut .
I used 300gsm card that I had printed a text background onto.
I then inked the edges and the bottom of the stand with dark brown ink

Then for the bodice I added some satin ribbon, I also glued some to the Bottom of the skirt , as this shows through the lace

 Then I used pin flare glue to attach the lace, as you can see I arranged it so that it was longer on the one side

To this I added a few small roses that I had lightly glittered with some stickles

Then I cut out a tag on my Cricut and added some papermania background paper from the Blue berry hill pad.
I wrapped some gold cord before sticking my dress form onto the tag with Pin flare glue again as I wanted it to be raised from the tag.
Made an organza Bow and used a bit more for the top of the tag.
To finish I added another rose to the bow 

Here is a side view to see the depth.
I have another one of these cut out so watch this space
