I am super excited to have been picked for a guest DT spot at Totally Gorjuss Challenge and especially to work with the lovely talented DT ladies who have been so welcoming 🙂
Our challenge for this week is KISS, which prompted some debate as to what exactly this stood for; I’m going with Keep it Sweet and Simple and have made 2 new baby cards.
The baby clothes were cut using my Cricut and raised up on sticky foam pads. I drew the washing line and the line around the clothes with a fineliner then added stitching round the panel and layered it onto the base card. I nearly added some cute mini pegs but the scale would have been all wrong (yes, I am that picky – lol) and I quite like to keep my cards fairly flat for easier posting!
Some friends have just had a little baby boy so I immediately went to one of my favourite LOTV stamps, which I have coloured with ProMarkers. I seem to have been making quite simple cards recently without much embellishment but this one was calling out for some added prettiness to go with the beautiful Maja papers!
I love this Lili of the Valley stamp that I bought recently so couldn’t resist inking it up again and colouring it with ProMarkers to make a card for a baby girl. I have kept the layout really simple with a little bit of sandpaper distressing round the edge of the DP and some ruffled seam binding which is my favourite thing at the moment!
DP: MME Lost & Found Two – Blush
Edging: Tilda lace die from Magnolia
Seam binding: Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment: Big Sentiments by Personal Impressions
Button: from stash

Passion for ProMarkers have challenged us to make a white on white card which usually fills me with dread but then this new stamp from Lili of the Valley dropped through my letter box and I was filled with inspiration!
Since it was allowed under the rules of the challenge I have lightly chalked the edges of the pieces I used to build up the rocker card and also pricked some holes to add a little texture. I used ProMarkers to colour the image apart from the blanket which I paper pieced from a scrap of MME paper. Here is a close up of the little cutie;
I finished the card off with a die cut swirl, a handmade crochet flower and some pearls.
