It’s time for another fun challenge with us over at The Play Date Cafe! This week I have a cute giraffe to share with you. I think he’s adorable! Thank you DRS for sponsoring us and letting us choose such lovely stamps!
Firstly I attached a corner rounded panel to the card base that I had tied around with a stripey ribbon. I then coloured Jenny with Copics, BG78, BG72, BG70 and YR24, YR23, YR21 before fussy cutting him out and attaching him to a Go Kreate concentric tag cut out of various patterned papers, using pop dots for added dimension. Finally I added a wooden chipboard letter ‘B’ for baby. (oops I thought Jenny was a ‘he’ so I’ve been calling him Gerry in my head!!) Well he/she would look good in any colour, sooo cute!
Inside I stamped the sweet little sentiment stamp (Diapers, Rattles and Blankets Baby Greeting’ onto patterned paper, I then die cut it and added a little Ranger Distress Ink ‘Faded Jeans’ around the edges and to finish I cut a strip of patterned paper to match the front tag. Sorry my photo’s not great, the light had gone by the time I had tried to take this pic.
These are our colours this week, with the suggested colours of teal, mustard and navy.
So don’t delay, pop on over to the main Play Date Cafe blog for lots more inspiration from my fellow teamies!
There’s a fab prize up for grabs from our sponsors, DRS Designs.
Sadly we are saying goodbye to two wonderful girls Libby Hickson and Tracy Kuzniak are leaving us. What I love about Libby is how she keeps us up to date with everything that’s going on, she is such a sweetie and fun to be on the team with. My favourite work of hers is when she paints different things, but one card in particular stands out in mind for me when I think of her.. this Hero Arts one, just beautiful! That gorgeous black glossy centre is enamel accents, yum!! You can see more about this card on Libby’s blog here.
Tracey is also such a kind hearted and friendly person to be around. She sent me a wonderful surprise package through the post of a little embossing buddy to help me sort out my embossing problem, but more special was the little card that I am now the very proud owner of! It is still my favourite card of hers, I just love it, the colours, the design and the words, it sits on the windowsill in my office. I really should get it framed! You can see more about it on Tracey’s blog here.
We will truly miss you girls, it’s been so much fun being on the team with you and getting to know you. We’ll keep up with your creative endeavours in blog land though I’m sure
Don’t forget you can also follow The Play Date Cafe on facebook! We’d love to see you.
Have a great day everyone! I’m hoping to get time to play on the new linky linking up tool soon, it sounds as though it will save so much time. Watch this space!
