Let's hop baby!

It's time for a blog hop at Craft-Dee BowZ and the Design Team has created outstanding projects for you this hop!  The Team has focused on "baby" for our topic and to use the colors mint green, lavender and/or yellow. I used this digital baby fairy image by Bugaboo for this card. Making cards for a new baby is a favorite of mine since it's such a joyous occasion.  It's definitely a day to celebrate a birth day!


The green die cut is a die by Quik Cutz and the stitched oval and stitched rectangle are dies by Die-Namics. The pink and white 'buttons' are actually brads covered in pink and white gingham fabric that I cut off the back and glued them on my card. The corner die cut is by Whimsy. Thanks, Donna, for these adorable brads and pretty ribbon!  My paper is just a piece of scrapbook paper but being such a nice even pattern of pastel hearts is what caught my eye for this card background.


I colored my image with Copics. I used my glue pen and applied Warm Glitter Ritz on her wings. On the star I applied clear Wink of Stella over my coloring and then some Glossy Accents. The background is chalked...I used a pastel pink around the image and then a yellow on the outside of the oval and then blended them to meet. I love the look of the chalk around this baby image. It's just enough color without over powering this adorable image.

And here's my bow. This double looped bow tied so perfect using my Craft-Dee BowZ bow tool. And you know how much I like this little tool since I mention in it every post that has a bow. And, that little silver metal pacifier was the perfect charm for this card!


Since this is a blog hop, you'll want to leave comments at each of the stops.  We've got a small team here at Craft-Dee BowZ, so doing our hop is super easy!  Here are the links to follow:


It's always fun to participate in a blog hop where there's a prize...and the prize here is a 25' spool of ribbon. You'll need to leave a comment on each of the stops above, though, to be included in the drawing.  On August 17 a name will be drawn, so please check back at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to see if you've won!  

Thanks for participating in the hop and I hope you like our creations. Good luck in the drawing!
