Oh baby

Hi Crafter's

Well the weather to to day has been beautiful and a lovely day for walking. I do hope it has been as good where you are.
I walked over the fields near where I live with our dog Dan. We went the long way round to Shipley park Via Mapperly and back again a distance of about eight miles or so. Unfortunately I didn't take may camera with me. When we got up into the woods at Shipley park I could see Blue Bells starting to make an appearance. Hopefully there should be a brilliant display in the next couple of weeks.

And now on to this weeks cards.  
I have been playing with these adorable Marianne design cutting dies.

This card was made for a customer I was asked to make a card for a baby girl.  I was asked if she could have butterflies on it so this is what I came up with.

I cut the word Baby out in a pink pearlesant card stock. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch, the wording is computer generated.

 This card I used the same die but this time I used a tan mat in the cutting sandwich so it would emboss instead of cut. After embossing I sponged the shape with broken china distress ink.


For this card I used a cameo die, I cut it out of the same card stock as the card and cut the back ground for it from blue pearlesant card.  The shape for the back ground I had to draw around the cameo and cut out with a pair of scissors. I was quite pleased with the result. I finished it off with a folded bow. The embossing around the edge of the card was done on the Hougie board.

Well that's all for this post. Thank you for visiting and I will see you soon with another card.
