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)

Boys in blue

A couple more baby boy cards today. Both quick, both using Serif CraftArtist and Louise Tiler Baby Bloom digikit. Simple images, so I thought a bit of decoupage would be in order.

For each one I only need to use one sheet of cardstock. I decide the size and shape of the finished card and then add my ‘material’ (Serif name for a bit of backing paper you can resize) and make bigger/smaller as required for the base card. Then add the ‘Embellishments’ I want and again resize. Once that is done I copy and paste the resized embellishments as many times as required to be able to make multiple cuts for the decoupage. Shuffle everything around a bit to fit, print and craft.

For the ‘washing line’ one I just cut the three main items out again, used a 3d foam pad low down on the cut-out and glued the top part (the pegs, basically!) flat onto the image below. Hopefully to give a breezy feel (thought about saying ‘windy’ but decided against it!). With such simple cards just a little bit of extra detail or interest helps, I think. Maybe?
