Another Baby Boy Card……..

If you are looking for my Clear it Out challenge card click HERE.
I am trying to get a stash of baby cards it seems there are some new Grandmas in the spring. I love this cute image and I made a frame for it.
I used a 5 inch square card base and layered some blue print paper on it. I put I attached the image on it. I cut the Ballet Blue with my Fleur dis lis square die and cut a circle with the small circle die, I cut a second piece of dsp with another circle and attached them together and popped the whole square with the image showing in the opening.
I am entering this in the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge #137….Anything Goes with Special Cuts you will find it HERE
Stuff I Used for this Card
Stamp…..Happy Hopper Great Catch
Ink……Versafine Black Onyx
Cardstock……GP white &  Ballet Blue
DSP……DCWV stack pack
5” card base
Spellbinders….Fleur dis lis square, small & large circle dies.
coloured with Prisma colour pencils and oms.

Hang on to your Circles…..the challenge isn’t over yet!!!

Because there are five weeks in January the circle challenge is still going on….check it out at Clear it Out Challenge Blog.

I tried a sketch. it didn’t turn out exactly like the picture I printed….but I like the way it looks, the hardest part was figuring out what colours to use. Of course we are to use “stash” so I went ‘dumpster diving” well into my odd pieces of scrap and I found a piece of shiny paper I made into a background using rubbing  alcohol; re-inkers and cotton balls, the other piece was done with re-inkers and shaving cream. Don’t you just love it when things just fall into place?


Things I used on this card……

Image……. Penny Black Acrocat

Card stock…..GP White, Ballet Blue, Regal Rose

Dsp……hand made on shiny paper & from DCWV pack

Sentiment….Rub ons from Stampin’up (my stash)

Rhinestones…..also stash item

Circles made with Spellbinders Large and Small dies.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see your creation at Clear it Out Challenge Blog. you can find the challenge HERE.
