Bring Your Own Bottle

Today is our Dueling Day with the Dueling Darlings. This is a scheduled post as I am away on vacation. Judy (Divas) and I (Dazzlers) were the hostesses this month and we chose to celebrate Baby Safety Month and challenge everyone to make a baby card with their kit. Here's what I included in my kit to the Dazzlers:

  • Image from Gina K Designs (retired stamp set called Wee Tees) on Neenah Solar White with Gina K Amalgam ink.
  • Sentiments from Paper Makeup Stamps and Hero Arts Everyday Sayings.
  • Designer Paper from the Paper Studio: Blue Tiny Toes Baby Feet, Pink Tiny Toes Baby Feet, Bright Watercolor Plaid, and Balloon Animals.
  • Embellishments: the Paper Studio la petites baby Girl Glitter Foam and Baby Boy Glitter Foam (bottles and pacifiers), Doodle Twine pink and white, Recollections Multicolored adhesive rhinestones, and the rest was from my stash (2 blue and yellow brads, yellow and blue ribbons, and a wooden clothespin).

For my card I used three of the patterned papers and backed them in black card stock so the colors would pop. I colored the onesie with Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut the image, then popped it up on the card. I used the yellow ribbon as an embellishment and added two of the rhinestones on each side of the ribbon and topped it off with the baby bottle and pacifier glitter foam pieces.
Here is the inside of my card.

The sentiment is from Paper Makeup Stamps, sadly no longer in business.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll check out what the other Dazzlers have done with my kit and what the Divas did with Judy's kit.I'm sure they will all be inspirational. Check out my right side bar for all the links. Have a wonderful day!

50th Wedding Anniversary

Hello! Watching and praying for all those on the east coast who may be affected by Hurricane Dorian. I've been working on a card for a 50th wedding anniversary for some dear friends of ours. Here's what I came up with.

I used the Spellbinder's Contemporary Hearts Pendant on the red card stock card. I used the Simon Says Heart Stack inside the pendant. I filled in some of the hearts to represent my friends' family. So the two red hearts are the 50th wedding couple. They had a son and daughter represented by the blue and pink hearts at the top. The three pink hearts at the bottom represent their 3 granddaughters (2 from the son and 1 from the daughter). I added the 50 die cuts at the top and added the Happy Anniversary sentiment from a Hero Arts stamp set. I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock. And here is the inside.

The image is from QKR Stampede called Bear Hugs. I colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. I added a verse for the inside.
I am entering these challenges:

I won't be around much for the rest of the month. My brother passed away this past week and the funeral will be Tuesday. We were scheduled to leave on vacation on Tuesday so that's being pushed back. We are heading for Maine for several weeks and we won't have Internet most of the time. So I'll have at least one post that will be scheduled but the rest of the month may not be much posting. I'll be back in October. Have a wonderful month!
