House Mouse May Flowers

Well, it has been such a long time since I've added anything to my blog. The last time was for a baby card for my friend at work, and now this is a card for her second baby. For this card I have used House Mouse stamps which I must say I really do love. The images are so adorable and so much fun to color. It seems like there is a baby boom happening right now, as I have 2 more baby cards to make before July.

The stamps I used were HM Baby Blocks for the front of the card & HM Monica With Pacifier on the inside. Both images were colored with copic markers. I used ms punches for the top & bottom borders & the infinity punch to border the main image. Spellbinders oval dies were used under the main image. Marvel punches for the yellow ovals and corners of the green cs. The bow was cut with a sizzlet die and I took the su spritzer tool to spray pink ink all over the bow. The pins were something that I had been thinking of doing prior to making this card. I took safety pins and added some white fabric paint to the ends to make them look like baby pins. I added prima flowers to the corners with sm silver button brads for centres and added blue ribbon under the image. The dp is from a dp pack from Michaels. I used coredinations cs and a metallic cs for the ovals that I put the pins on. SU pink cs was used for the main part of the card in which everything is attached to.

I do believe that I should make more of an effort in keeping my blog up to date. I have made many cards inbetween these 2 baby cards. Stamping is something that I truly love to do. I spend many late nights doing my stamping and other crafts during my weekends.
