Baby Cards

Hi Everyone!

Here today with my cards for yesterday's Tuesday Morning Sketch and today's SCS sketch challenge as well as this week's color challenge. I am working on baby cards this week for the gift card sets I am doing for the craft fair.
The first card is for the TM sketch. I used Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and some textured card stock from Bazzill earth tones collection. I also used a new stamp set from Inkadinkado appropriately titled "Baby Boy" As you can see, I stamped the images in softer ink colors (bashful blue, saffron and celery) so they are a bit hard to see in the picture. This was a simple sketch to work with and an easy card to put together.
So, that's the boy card for today. Now on to the girl card. This is for today's SCS sketch challenge and the color challenge to use Dusty Durango, Pretty in Pink and Creamy Caramel along with a neutral. I chose white. I really like this combo especially the Pink and the Durango. This was by far the easiest card I've put together in a long time. It took me less than 30 minutes and I have to say I completely love the results. The flowers are from a tin of Prima flowers that I have and the button is from SU. I really like to use these flowers; but they are quite large and so sometimes you have to design the card around the flower instead of just adding them as a last minute embellishment to the card. It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but I did use a cuttlebug embossing folder on the white background piece. I really like the look of the white embossing!
The "Sweet Little Baby" sentiment, stamped in Regal Rose ink, is from the Inkadinkado set called (yep...you guessed it!) "Baby Girl"
Ok, so that's it for me today. I will try to post again sometime Friday afternoon. Until then, have a great couple of days and happy crafting!!
