Same tools, different results

These cards were made with the same products I have used for the last two posts (leaving out the technical blip one!). I just decided to change up the colour scheme a bit. The one with the little shoes was a breeze, done in literally minutes with leftover decoupage elements and a square card blank that I cut down to make the size I wanted.

This second one I believe could be called a difficult birth. We went through a lot of trauma and bad things were said. To be honest I wished my craft space had gas and air on offer. I would have happily inhaled deeply many times. I’m still not 100% happy with it (about 55%, really), but, like parenthood, you do your best and then live with the end result.

I think I am done with baby card posts for a while!

Supplies for card one: Serif CraftArtist  – Louise Tiler Baby Bloom digikit; Craftwork Cards card blank

Supplies for card two: Altenew Baby Zoo stamps and dies and Dark Chocolate & Ocean Waves inks; Cuttlebug Just My Type embossing strips (from old stash)

  1. More beautiful cards! I love the embossed button border on card 2. I’ll be honest and say I’ve wished for gas and air many times when I’ve been doing story and songs for 2 hours and the only person willing to settle for the night was me!

  2. These are the sweetest cards 🙂 The colours are beautiful Gillian and I do love the embossed detail on the giraffe card. There are many times when I have to tell myself to ‘walk away from the card’ when I can’t seem to get it right in my head! Sometimes a cuppa helps, other times it could be an overnight job where I’ll just abandon it until the next day!

    1. Thanks Karen! Some of my horrors spend the rest of their days in a box. It’s meant to be ‘work in progress’ but the inmates rarely see the light of day again!

  3. GORGEOUS….the end result is quite perfect for both. Love the twins. 🙂 🙂 Each so different yet so adorable.

    Well done!! Again you’ve managed to inspire some new ideas in this little Gold Fish Brain of mine.

  4. Both amazing cards, but I have a soft spot for polka dots, so the first one didn’t just speak to me, it positively demanded my attention.

    You have a real talent for card making. Great cards and the colours you choose are so perfect together.
