Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog hop. The design team is looking forward to sharing some great cards with you today. As with any good blog hop, there are goodies up for grabs, so make sure you leave a comment on all the blogs for your chance at a prize!
Now, you should have arrived here from Lana's Blog, but if you didn't, just start back at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog. That way you won't miss any of the fun :)
The theme for the hop is Flowers and Children, so I chose to ink up the baby themed set named Baby Baily (380) for my cards today. While it is a boy themed set, I decided that it really is versatile. I used some pastel patterned paper, and played off the pink, lavender and green. This could work for little girls too :) The sweet rhyme was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (99604) colored with Copic markers and I used Pear Embossing Powder (EP420) for the vertical stamped panel.
For this next card, I used my go to color combo for baby boy cards, yellow and blue. I stamped the bib from the same set and embossed them with Ice Rink (EP408) embossing powder and created the background. I then stamped the bib on yellow and fussy cut it and adhered it with a pop dot. I used an Oval Nestabilities die and popped up the words Baby Boy as well. With all the sheen from the embossing powder, a simple ribbon and button was all that I needed to complete the card.
Full card details for both can be found in my gallery at Sparkle N Sprinkle.
