A couple of weeks ago I stopped by The Queen’s Ink in Savage Mills to see what new things I absolutely couldn’t live without. And while I have an ample stash of paper, I couldn’t resist a pack of the new Perfectly Plaid Collection by Lawn Fawn. Lots of fun plaids that compliment rather than overpower a simple card image like Mo Manning’s Spit Happens. I found a pack of the 12×12 inch sheets, but it’s also available as a 6×6 pad.

Still working on new baby cards for my Etsy shop. Today I’m adding this card which features the New Baby digital stamp by Mo’s Digital Pencil. I love the character and the detail in Mo Manning’s drawings.
I struggled with the colors for this image because I wanted to capture the folds in the bassinet fabric but given them a soft, translucent quality. So I used pale blues and a soft yellow to try to capture those qualities. Hope you enjoy the end result!

I’ve sold out of nearly all of the baby cards in my Etsy shop so it was time to come up with some new designs and replenish my stock. While I like traditional baby colors and soft pastels, I really prefer non-traditional color combinations, especially when the results are gender neutral so that I can have appropriate cards on hand whether it’s a boy or girl.
I decided to use Bunny Luv by House Mouse Designs depicting a mother’s love for her baby as the central image. I still had on hand enough of the Sealed with a Kiss patterned card stock by Doodlebug to add as an accent. I wanted to play off the hearts in the stamped image with the design of the card stock. And while brown and red are probably not traditional baby colors, I think this combination works and I’m pleased with the end result.
The inside sentiment is an image that I created in PicMonkey using the font Mirabella which I purchased from Creative Market.

I’ve been working on a lot of baby cards lately. My friend at Moonlight Greetings recently used these images by Bugaboo Stamps to create a cute baby card and when I saw the images, I knew I had to make one as well. While this card is meant for a baby girl, the colors could easily be changed to create a card for a boy or one that is gender neutral.
