Baby Girl Mini Album

A little while ago I was asked to make a baby girl mini album and this is what I designed for her.



The cover latch is made using Basic Grey magnet discs.  The button is a star shaped mother-of-pearl one I found in my stash.  It is glued on the punched out label from Stampin' Up!  The sweet baby sleeping on the moon and yellow stars are a die cut from Cottage Cutz and are colored with Copic markers.  The rest is a piece of design paper I found in my stash.  In fact all of the design paper in the album I found in my stash and have no idea what company it is.  All edges on this album are sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink by Ranger






Inside front cover has a pocket with 3 handmade tags.  The large tag is made with a Stampin' Up! punch.  The lacy trim on this and other pockets in the album are made with a Martha Stewart punch. The mini envelope is from an old McGill punch.  The baby booties are a Cottage Cutz die colored with Copics.  All of the dies I used in this book were colored with Copic markers.



The first inside page has a flap held closed with a concealed magnet.  The onesie is from a die set by Little B as is the rocking horse. 



Inside page with the flap open and 3 more tags in the pocket.



Inside flap with Teddy Bear die by Cottage Cutz.



The back side of the page with a baby carriage die by Memory Box.


The next page is an overlapping gate fold using another hidden magnet.  The diaper pin dies are by Little B and Marianne Designs.



One side of gate fold open. Footprints and buggy are some old stickers I found in my stash.  The footprints are popped up with dimensionals. 



Inside left flap of gatefold.  The blocks are another Cottage Cuts die. 



Page with both flaps open.



The whole gate fold page folds down and this is the back of it.  The stork die is from Impression Obsession.






There is a top flap that is also attached to the inside back cover that folds up and down from the top of the page.  This is one side of the page.  The rattle is from a stamp I had - don't know the name.  The page is a pocket page.  I used my envelope punch board to create the side of the pocket and a Stampin' Up! punch to create the tab for the pocket insert. 



The back side of the pocket page.  The stork is part of the Little B die set.



The inside back cover with 3 more tags in another pocket.  The ducks are a Memory Box Die.  The waves are created by cutting apart a swirl die from Penny Black.



Outside back cover.  The baby carriage is a Die-namites die.

Thanks for stopping by.

Feathery Owl

Love this cute little owl from Impression Obsession.  It's one of their new stamps that came out earlier this fall and one of my favs.  I made this card awhile ago and just now am getting around to posting it.



I stamped the owl, branch, wheat and moon with clouds by coloring them with SU markers and huffing on them for moisture before stamping. Then I colored in the rest with Copic Markers. Sponged the edges with Distress Walnut Stain and matted the piece on Early Espresso, Bermuda Bay and Apricot Appeal cardstock. Stickles were added to the wheat.  A few feathers were added in the upper left corner.

Stamps used:
Impression Obsession - Feathery Owl
Prickley Pear - wheat
Stampa Barbara - moon with clouds
Third Coast - tree branch

Thanks for stopping g by.

Sit for a Spell!

Just a fun Halloween card I made while I was fooling around with a new cute stamp set I picked up at Michaels earlier this fall.


I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat dried the ink with a heat gun quickly before coloring both the images and background with Copic markers. The white cardstock was cut at 4 by 5 1/4 and matted on a piece of A2 black cardstock. The witch's hat was masked with a cutout Post-it Note before the hanging sign and witch's shoes were stamped.
 
Materials used:
Hampton Art clear stamp set - Witch is In SC0696
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Copic Markers
Post-it-Notes
GP110 white cardstock
Black cardstock
A2 white card base
 
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great rest of this chilly fall weekend.
