Hello, Baby

I'm back! We are officially moved in to the wonderful city of Berkeley, California. We've had an incredibly busy summer, a lot of driving, a lot of training for work, and not so much crafty time. My studio is finished enough to finally make something, and man did it feel good to stamp and color! So my first card is for my bestest friend in the world and her new adorable baby!

Since it's been so long, I needed some inspiration. I turned to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is "For a Child". Naturally I made a card for almost 3 week old baby George :)

I stamped several small images from Mama Elephant's "New Family" stamp set for a background. I colored all images with my Copic markers.

The little bun bun and sentiment are also from the New Family stamp set. Welcome to the world sweet baby George and congrats to Katie! Love you guys!

And So...

It's about time to dust this old blog off and post something :) We're in the middle of selling our house and moving across the country, so artsy time is few and far between. I decided to join in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Home Sweet Home.

The base for this quick tag was some torn up Gelli Prints I had from years ago. I adhered it to the tag with Design Memory Craft Honey Medium.

Then I added some dry-wall tape to add texture. I colored the tape with purple and light blue Scribble Sticks to pull some colors from the Gelli Print.

I forgot to take a picture of the next step... I used white fluorescent ribbon from a gift bag and adhered it to the tag. It needed a very thick layer of Gel Medium and a lot of time to dry! While I waited, I worked on coloring my house images...

I stamped the house images onto Gesso'd watercolor paper and colored with Scribble Sticks. The stamps are from Unity Stamp Co "Create Your Day" and "Tumbleweed Houses".

Finally I added some clear gems, a metal arrow, and a sentiment. Tag finished!

I'm just hopping over to dust off the ol' blog and post some adorable Easter cards. My dear friend Lynn Kopas and I created some cards while we were at Crop on the Cape... So here they are!

These cards are created with adorable Lawn Fawn stamp sets and Lawn Fawn paper pads. Happy Easter!
