Baby girl card

There's a girl I made a card to send as soon as she arrives.
I;ve made an ombre background in pink tones. Used some Dutch Doobadoo embossing paste, Heidi Swapp stencil,I've kept the hearts to the side, so the sentiment would show up well.
For the sentiment I've die cut BABY with the Lawn Fawn Finley's ABC and for the stamped sentiment i've had to cut up a sentiment from Eline's sweet sentiments, but now it works ;-)
Some embroidery silk and a heart shaped button. The white panel is raised.
I really must remember the little inset in the A is a pain in the you know what to raise up on foam before I decide to die cut
Anyway I'm pleased with how it turned out.

I have entred this card into the Cas this sketch challenge, see this for more info

also i entered on the Less is more challenge grey and pink

Lawnscaping challenge: stamped background

For this Lawnscaping challenge (my first!) I used 2 stamp sets for the background the happy from winter penguin and the little heart from sending hedgehugs.

Although not strictly meant for stamping i used all kinds of blue toned Distress inks and some blue/green colors.

I die cut Birthday with Lawn Fawn's Finley's ABC and raised it a little to create dimension.

At first i thought of using the same stamped background or blue, but I went with red, so it really pops.

Distress inked backgrounds

i've been so inspired by the colour combo i saw in the January cardkit from Simon says stamp.
On YouTube a few ladies used a patterned paper similar to the one i created.
I don't have a close up of the patterned paper they used, but that doesn't really matter, it's the graduation and colours that grabbed me, the rest is my own interpretation.
I recently purchased some snowflake dies from Marianne creatables. I matched  the sequins I have as best as i could, and the purple snowflake is actually Lindy's stamp gang embossing power
I also  made a similar one with blues and green as in sky and grass for this cute shaker card.

To remember how i did it, i took a picture with the various Distress inks in the order I used them.
I added yellow to the bottom two (green) ones as I thought they were too blue-ish.
then let it dry to even out and started the splattering (is that a new word?)
