Narelle has come up with a great sketch for us at Just Add Ink this week.  We'd love for you to make a card or scrapbook page, using this sketch, and share it on the Just Add Ink blog.

Here's the sketch:

I decided to make a baby card, using the oh-so-cute Sweet Li'l Things Designer Series Paper.  The papers decided my colour scheme for me - Tip Top Taupe, Tangelo Twist, Pool Party and Very Vanilla.
Talking of cute, have you seen the Made With Love stamp set yet?  This is one of the latest additions to my collection, and I can see myself having all sorts of fun with it!  The stamps are designed to co-ordinate with the gorgeous Baby's First framelits.
I first stamped the "onesie" (what I've always known as a growsuit ... is that a New Zealand thing?) in Tip Top Taupe ink, on Very Vanilla card.  The kitten and sentiment (all on one stamp) were stamped onto the front of the onesie, in Tangelo Twist ink.  I used a Blender Pen, and the inkpads,  to add some subtle touches of colour to the onesie and the kitten.  This adorable stamp set comes in photopolymer, which makes it super-easy to position images exactly where you want them.
Make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's creations over at Just Add Ink; we have some amazing talent on our team!

  1. Such an adorable baby card, Christine! just "purrfect" for a new baby boy, with those colors. The embossed stars in the background add to the super cute look. So sweet!

  2. Great card Christine. That stamp is just purrfect on the "grow suit".

  3. Hi Christine, That is a cute card, love the colours used, Cheers Anna.

  4. I just love how the zzz DSP says kitten purring to me - it must be cause that kitty is super dooper cute! Love your mix of DSP and embossed detail Christine - just a gorgeous baby card! xxx

  5. Such a gorgeous baby card Christine! I love your "purrfect" image - so beautifully coloured and your pretty DSP choices too. It could be a NZ thing - I know them as "stretch and grow" suits which is similar :-) xo

  6. Nope not just a New Zealand thing, an Aussie thing too! Definitely a 'growsuit'. Gorgeous card Christine! Great use of that sweet DSP and I love your 'growsuit'! Gorgeously coloured and I love the kitten stamped in the middle. All just too cute!

  7. This is really cute Christine - I can see why these papers decided your colour scheme - they are so sweet. Chantell X X

  8. This is a really sweet card, my friend. I love the colours you've used and the texture that's been added using an EF and inking the edges of your elements. Your sweet bow is a lovely finish. xx

  9. Totally cute Christine! The sweet dsp patterns and colours are lovely and that onesie is adorable with the image...Lovely use of the sketch. xx

  10. Hi Christine! This is such an adorable card; I just purchased this set and now am inspired to get it out and play! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love on my blog!
