Crafty Boots Challenge: Babies!!

This months Crafty Boots Challenge is very relavant to me: Babies!! With Baby Tiddlywink due imminently i thought i'd share with you the baby announcement cards that i have made ready in advance:

These cards were super quick to make (which was just as well as i had to make quite a lot!!) and you will notice that i slightly altered the designs to make creating such large quantities more bearable!!

I started with 'Bashful Blue' cardbases (i managed to make 3 cards from every piece of A4 card) and embossed them using the 'Big Shot' and the 'Stripes Embossing Folder' to create texture and then placed three 'Basic Pearls' in the bottom corner of each card to add some bling!!

I then stamped the super cute baby feet from the 'Baby Prints' stampset onto some 'Whisper White' card using 'Bashful Blue' ink and then stamped the 'it's a boy'  over the feet (also from the 'Baby Prints' stampset) using 'Pacific Point' ink and then ran it through the 'Big Shot' using a die from the 'Labels Collection Framelits Dies', using 'Dimensionals' to attach the image to the cardbase. Here's a close-up:

I finished these cards off by stamping the announcement image from the 'Little Additions' stampset using 'Pacific Point' ink:

I loved making these cards and can't wait to send them out to all our friends and family to announce the arrival of Baby Tiddlywink. If you're expecting your own little arrival why not consider making your own announcement cards - check out the catalogues for suitable materials and feel free to email me for advice and orders:
