Here is the card I made...
I  made a really cute missing you card! I love the really soft pastel colors in the inspiration photo and just new I wanted to do some ink blending for my focal image background using some distress inks and that is exactly what I did. 
I cut the design paper using the new Fancy Frames dies for the pink scalloped layer and the polka dotted layer as well as the top layer. 
I stamped the panda from the Panda Pals Stamp set on watercolor paper using versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I colored in the panda with Tombow watercolor markers. For the smallest inked piece I used Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio distress inks for soft background piece.  I stamped both of the greetings from the same stamp set as well. I wrapped the pink and white bakers twine before tying a bow at the top and sprinkled some pastel dots to pull it all together. 
Here are the CDD products I used:


Love and Laughter,


  1. I love how you were inspired by this challenge, Michelle! Such a pretty card!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.

On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
