New Baby and Big Sister Cards & Gifts

As I mentioned in my post on Wednesday I had been busy make a few things but had to wait to share them in blogland, now the wait is over.




My first make was a nice little paint job, isn't she cute?  This is Beck from Pixie Hollow, she is an animal-talent fairy who loves animals. Beck is able to talk to the animals.  She is plant pot stick painted with Peobo acrylic paints.  She was a big sister gift for a friend's little girl.



And to go with that, a big sister card.  This particular little girl loves Princesses, (lets face which little girl, or big girl, doesn't wish they could be a princess if only for a little while!), so this is Snow White in her carriage.  I cross stitched Snow White using a free cover kit from Quick & Easy Cross Stitch magazine.  The carriage was cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine, and then I added some bling with peel-offs, gems & a butterfly bead paint gold using a Artline 900XF Gold pen.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
Sisters of Craft - Anything Goes July Challenge - http://thesistersofcraft.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/sisters-of-craft-july-anything-goes.html

Obviously I needed a new baby card for the parents and I just fell in love with this image (Close to my Heart) from Saturated Canary and knew it would be perfect.  I used the following Graph It markers to colour the image skin; 4120, 4125, 4135, 4150, 5110, lady's hair; 1210, 1230, 3125, 3245, baby's hair; 3150, 3160, papoose; 5120, 5125, 5130, eyes; 7110, 9201, dress; 6110, 6120, 6140, 6175.  She is mounted on foam pads on to Creata Classic Line paper cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  The background papers are from Creata patterned paper and mounted onto half an A5 base card (I have a huge stash of pre-scored base cards that are, shall we say, of dubious quality, so I thought this is a good way of using them up).  The pink ric-rac ribbon dividing the four quarters is from my stash.  The completed topper is mounted on to Anna Marie Designs kraft card.

Finally, my little gift for the new baby was a pair of lilac socks.  I just adore this colour but they were crying out to be embellished, so I added buttons to one and cross stitched her name on the other.


Have a fabulous weekend.  Crafty Blessings. x
