I don't know if its because its October and Cancer Awareness Month but I seem to be heading towards anything pink at the moment when it comes to ink, paper etc. So when I saw the theme at Just Add Ink this week was 'Just add baby', I decided to run with the pink idea.
I love children and especially babies, so I'm not sure why I find it so hard to make baby cards. I don't own any 'baby' stamps or much in the way of 'baby' papers, so had to go on a bit of a search for something appropriate. Thank goodness for Teresa Collins!
I found this gorgeous paper with pale pink elephants and darker peach/coral hearts, so die-cut this into a speech bubble. This was popped up with foam tape on the front of the card. I then stamped and heat embossed in gold the sentiment on a white banner, on which I also used foam tape. I then die cut some gold hearts and framed one of the dark hearts with the gold. Not even an enamel dot in sight!
The paper is from Teresa Collins 'You are my Happy'. The speech bubble metal die is from MFT Die-namics. The sentiment is from Fiskars and the metal heart die is from CAS-ual Fridays.
I'm going to link this to the WCMD Winnie and Walter Challenge: Colour Combo with Gayatri where the combo theme is:
I will also link to the House of Cards October Challenge where their theme is to use 'Punches or dies or both' on your project. This is my second entry.
I'm also going to join a new challenge I found out about today (thank you Mynn) 'Inspired by Stamping #86 where they have a colour combo, sketch and photo for inspiration. I chose the photo because I was attracted to all that gold and pink:
Right, I'm off to start linking to all of these challenges and then need to write out my post for a new Time Out Challenge tomorrow night. These fortnights between challenges certainly go fast and I can't believe its only around 12 weeks till Xmas. My waistline hasn't recovered yet from last Xmas!!!!!
