There seems to be a baby boom all of a sudden! I have 4 baby gifts to make, 2 for girls and 2 for boys. I like to give personalised altered photo albums so I'll be posting a few over the next couple of days!
Baby Girl Card
The little giraffe is made by Woodware and is stamped using pink paint, then cut out and raised on foam pads. The glitter detail around the edge of the circle and on the giraffe is stardust Stickles glitter glue. The dots are White Opal liquid pearls.
Altered Photo Album
The chipboard letters are cut with Sizzix alphabet dies ~ Slim, and painted with Anita's baby pink paint. I cut a piece of vellum with a Labels 4 Nestablilities die and painted the edges with pink. I then glued the letters to the vellum and attached it all to the album by putting tiny dots of glue behind the letters so when it is stuck on, you can't see the glue through the vellum.
The swirls are cut with a Marianne Creatables die (which my lovely friend Meryl sent home with Mum & Dad from Australia) I love these little dies ~ you can cut and emboss with them at the same time. The flowers are Green Tara and I edged them with stardust stickles.
The bag is made from 2 sheets of A4 cardstock. After scoring the card, I stamped (Unity) flowers all along the bottom edge using grass green & opera pink versacolor inks. The giraffe is stamped with the pink ink on spare card and cut out before gluing to the front of the bag. The butterfly (Unity again!) is stamped twice on spare card in the two inks and cut out. The green butterfly is glued flat on the bag and the pink one is glued along the centre only and the wings lifted up. Detail is added with white opal liquid pearls. The tag is made by cutting a circle in spare card edging it with pink ink and stamping using Studio G baby stamps.
