Nichole's Cards!

Well! I know I have been quiet lately, almost a full week of no postings! I worked 5 12 hour nights in a row, and let me tell you, my brain is working but my body is not willing, lol! Just climbing the stairs to the stamp room seems insurmountable- if that's a word, lol!

If you are here, no doubt you are a Papertrey follower, and know all about the 15th of each month and release sneak peeks- but if not, go here and look at the cards Nichole Heady posted earlier this week! Wow!

Now, the sets she used won't be available until 0001 on the 15th of June, but I loved the cards she did- so i thought maybe I could turn them into baby cards! And I did!



The first card I used a baby sentiment on the Kraft, but did essentially what she did. I don't have the retro background set, so I just used the double lines from Faux Ribbon. My color is Hibiscus burst here, and I used a close match Prisma marker for the line on the ribbon. Obviously my image is different, the onsie from Bitty Baby blessings- and oops, I forgot to put the sentiment on...I'll probably just put it inside!

This copy I used the Faux Ribbon lines again, but stamped polka dots from Polka Dot Basics on as well. Then I stamped the umbrella in Berry sorbet (same as the bg layer), and colored in the flowers with a Glitter Glue yellow. The duckie is a EK Success punch, done in Lemon Tart. A weensy black seed bead forms the eye. The sentiment is from The Cats Pajamas, it's one of my favorites!



The third card uses Kraft as the card base, and then has a white box drawn with a Signo pen. The sentiment is from Faux Ribbons, the dotted layer is from the Polka Dot Parade 8 x 8 pad, and the onsie from Bitty Baby Blessings is cut out from the Bitty Stars 8 x 8 pad.


What fun! Thanks, Nichole!!

Holy cow, that's a long week. I used to do 12 hour shifts and it is always difficult when you have them in a row like that. These cards are gorgeous though!! I love how you turned them into baby cards :)
