Welcome Baby

Welcome Baby is the challenge I participated in.

There are some very cute baby gifts put together by the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot design team.

This is my gift set to welcome baby.  I will be packaging this set up and will be sending them off to a family member who just found out she was pregnant.

The baby buggy was cut out with Nestabilities and punches.  The shoes came from a pattern Kim designed.  Gold embossing adds a little interest to the shoe.

Jennifer McGuire Inspired Card

Inspiration by Jennifer McGuire is the theme for this challenge

Jennifer McGuire made a video tutorial on sanding away white core paper, and colouring overtop onto the white portion.

This is my take on the tutorial.

After sanding away the core, I used pastel chalks and a Q-tip to colour the CB background.

Stay tuned for another challenge I am participating in, welcoming baby.

Spa Weekend at the CB Blogspot

cbcsidebar

Enjoy a relaxing weekend at the Spa with the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot

Friday evening I spent a couple of hours participating in the blog hop Kick Off.  There were 30 blogs to visit, where each DT member gave us the name of their favourite flower.  After I retrieved all the answers, I sent off an e-mail with the information, for my chance to win a Cuttlebug.

An apple template was provided compliments of Sheetload Shortcuts.  I created four 6″ x 6″ thank you cards for teachers.

Chipboard letter was painted with white acrylic paint.  Polka dots were added to the chipboard, card background, and leaves with a stylus dipped in paint.
