A Little Nest.

So much to do and so little time, so a quick post hoping that you have all had a safe and Happy Christmas.  Crafty Creations  are on holidays but just to keep in touch and keep your creative juices flowing I’m sharing this little toddlers card.

Can you identify which stamp set the little nest is from? How many guessed the Swirly Birds Set. Well done you!

The papers are Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo. Inks used Blushing Bride, and Flirty Flamingo and Basic Grey for the nest.2nd-birthday

The embossed background used  the Seaside EF, a versatile folder, not just for sea themed cards!!   Love the Layering Oval Dies, makes framing so quick and easy. The sentiment was from a free retired Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, Party Pants. Getting these free stamps sets is a quick way to build up your supply. You are all so lucky to be able to do that soon.

Number 2 is a Large Number Framelit and the little suit Something for Baby SS and Baby’s First Framelits. All topped off by some flowers using the Blooming Heart Thinlits and dotted with some black pearls.

Get ready for the NEW YEAR.

I am, lots of organising and sorting so can have a super year.  Cheers Naomi


Baby Love

Babies can bring boundless joy and wakeful hours but when they arrive a month early and all there tiny baby bits are perfect it’s certainly time for extra love.

So it was with great joy after an anxious 24 hrs that I created this card for a friend. I was so happy with it I made two more!!

On Whisper White Card stock I used Smokey Slate for the Banner and greeting with the Thoughtful Banners Stamp and Punch.

Again on Whisper White CS for the ground I chose Smokey Slate using the stamp from the Sheltering Tree . . The flowers were  from the same stamp set in Melon Mambo with stems  in Memento Tuxedo Black.

I again used Melon Mambo for the hearts from The Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamps and highlighted the largest one with Itty Bitty Epoxy stickers – retired now.

After that it was just a case of stamping the prams from Something for Baby in Blushing Bride, Flirty Flaming and Watermelon Wonder, two of the new In Colours. The matching Baby’s First Framelits die made cutting out easy. Then I popped up the Banner and pram with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the inside, see next blog.
