There have been a few babies born around here lately, and more are not far away.

I though that it was about time I made some baby, both to give away and for my stash.

I have had the stamp set Nursery Necesities for a while now but it hadn't seen rubber yet. I thought I'd better christen it before it started feeling like I didn't love it!

I began with the boy card on the left. The moon has been inked with Barely Banana and the long edge was rolled with Summer Sun to add some depth. The DSP is from Spring Showers. I stamped the star background from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Versamark then added Dazzling Diamonds for glimmer. Both "welcome little one" and "it's a boy!" are from Nursery Necessities too. The cardstock colours are Bashful Blue, Bagle Green and Barely Banana. Welcome little one is gold embossed.

I was really pleased with this one so I made a pink one using the same basic layout. Colours are Pretty in Pink, Balush Blossom (instead of DSP), So Saffron (for the moon), Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon and Perfect Plum to mat the sentiment. The other main difference is that the moon was not rolled in another colour as it made it too dark, and I covered the moon with Crystal Effects to give it more dimension.

I'm really pleased with these cards as it is not often that I design my own from scratch (I usually use someone's design and make my unique versions).
