Baby Blue Duck-CCCCact29


I have missed a week or two of doing Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenges and I have missed them! This week she has this fun color combo, Summer Sun, Bordering Blue, Whisper White (I used Very Vanilla instead...) and Tangerine Tango. What a fun color combo to work with! Go try it for yourself!

I need a baby boy card for friends that recently had a little boy, so that is where I went with this card! I started with texturizing the Bordering Blue card stock (I haven't ever used this color that much, but now that I did use it, I really like it!) squares using the Perfect Polka Dots and Square Lattice embossing folders and then just a piece of Textured card stock. I placed them in a square and then used my sewing machine to make a paper "blanket". I then took a piece of satin Very Vanilla ribbon and tied it around the "blanket" and mounted it onto a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla card stock and added a paper button to the middle of the ribbon knot.

The cute duck is from the retired stamp set Wagon Full of Fun and was stamped using black StazOn onto watercolor paper. I then took my markers and highlighted him with the appropriate color from this week then took my Aqua painter pen and colored him it.

The word "baby" was die cut using the Timeless Type Alphabet Jr. Sizzilts die and the Big Shot. I mounted the letters on the card using Stampin' Dimentionals to make it pop off the card a little bit.

Thanks for looking!

p.s. If you are looking for another great color inspiration we would love to have you join us over at the Stampin Celebration blog for an "out of this world" inspiration Challenge!
