Cards For a New Baby Girl Part I

On Friday, the arrival of our new niece was only 24 hours away so my sister Helz and I had congratulatory cards to make.

Hels picked this baby mobile card on pinterest made by Tilly McLeod.  Please visit her blog and check our her amazing crafts.  Thanks for the inspiration, Tilly!

Helz wanted a colour scheme of mint green, pale purple and light grey.  Mint Macaron, Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate were perfect.

"Do Stampin' Up! alliterate EVERYTHING?" asks Helz.  Blushing furiously I had to answer in the affirmative.  It's one thing I'm not hugely fond of I have to admit.

Helz wanted to use Copic markers again and picked the animals from a couple of Mama Elephant stamp sets.  She went with a 5x7 inch card to make sure she had enough room and did a great job.

Meanwhile I made a card for our parents to give.  The weather was miserable and I was lacking inspiration so I turned to Pinterest.  I knew I wanted to do a square card but that's it.  I found this card by Stasia Sloma.  The animal print onesies are so on trend and the new mum loves animal print so it was perfect!  Please visit her blog.  Thank you so much for the inspiration, Stasia!

I used the leopard print since it was a smaller scale for the onesies from the Go Wild DSP pad and a couple of different pinks from a couple of different Dear Lizzy collections and some neutral patterns from My Mind's Eye.  I'm not totally happy with the card to be honest and I think Stasia did a much better job with hers.  I love the pearl detail she used!

I might try the design again some time and see if I'm happier with it.

The photos aren't great, but evening was upon us, light was fading fast and we needed to finish!
