Little One with Kelly


Hi Folks! Kelly here with a sweet little pair of elephants from Big Hugs with Evelin T Designs for a happy pregnancy card. This card came about after working on a card for Winnie & Walter's 5th Birthday Celebration where I wanted to combine 3 different stamp sets and have a family of elephants on the card. After coloring the parents in gray, and then coloring the baby in gray, it looked kind of blah. So I scrapped that card and moved on to something else.


Meanwhile, I still wanted to do something with these cute gray elephants, especially since I had worked on coloring them. So I grabbed a card base, did a little blending in the middle with the Life Changing Blending Brushes, added the heart diecut from Flawless Heart Cutaways, added the tiny sentiment from Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs, and I had myself a card!

It's a simple card, but I do think that's a good choice for a baby card. 


I just love these sweet elephants twisting their trunks together to make a heart, and then there's a big heart behind them. I intentionally picked a tiny sentiment so the heart would have lots of white space. And, because this is for a tiny human. It seemed to fit.

 

In the past I totally would have set these guys aside to use in a card "later" and then I'd probably never see them again. So I'm glad I took the extra couple minutes to find a forever home for them on this card. So worth it!

Thanks so much for looking! Next time you end up with some leftovers, consider giving them a shot on another card before putting everything away.

March Color Combo with Heather H (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you!


Here is my color inspiration for this month - I don't know if I'm the only one that feels like winter has lasted FOREVER this year, but I felt like a nice bright and happy palette with some dreams of summer days to come was in order!


One of my favorite techniques lately has been playing with alcohol inks to create fun backgrounds - so that is where I started for my color combo on this card. I used Flamingo, Amethyst, and Limeade Alcohol inks for this background, blending with blending solution.


Next I die cut the solid heart from True Dotty Heart Cutaways from white cardstock to use as a base for my cute birdies from So Tweet with Evelin T Designs. I colored the birdies up to match the ink background, just reversing the order of the colors, then die cut with the Coordinating Dies


I stamped the big "happy" from In a Word: Happy Coordinating Cutaways in Party Dress ink, and then added a little additional sentiment from Party On with Evelin T Designs stamped in Lime Rickey and trimmed it to a thin strip to mount underneath. I added some foam adhesive behind some of the layers to add a touch of dimension to finish it off!


Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! ! So without further ado, here they are!

First up - this GORGEOUS marbled creation from Maryam! I love the pretty colors with that fun background - beautiful!


Next up, next up, this classy and perfect card from Greta pretty much nailed the challenge colors! I love the birch trees and the sentiment pairing, the touch of sparkle from the sequins, and the pretty die cut edge all around!


And finally, isn't this beauty from Megan Beth AMAZING?!?!? Love how crisp and clean it is, and all the different textures and color to her background!


<<<RANDOM WINNER>>>
