Baby Shower card - Unscripted Sketches #218

Toronto sure got dumped on with rain yesterday resulting in the most severe flooding since Hurricane Hazel in 1952.  The whole city of Mississauga was without power; subway service was affected; people had to be rescued from the Go train by boat.  And Peterborough,  1 and 1/2 hours away did not get a drop of rain!  Thank goodness as I could not go through a flood again!

Some people have been allowed to return to their homes in a small Quebec town devastated by a 70 train car derailment and explosion on Saturday night. The run away ghost train was carrying crude oil. Half the down town was burned down; over 40 people are missing and presumed dead.  Most were probably in a bar close to the train tracks.  My thoughts and prayers are with the people of the town and those who lost loved ones.

This card is for my craft show this weekend.  Baby cards are like gold; it's hard to keep up to making them.  Right now I am short of baby shower cards, so decided to use the sketch challenge with Unscripted Sketches here to make one.


I wanted to use some soft colours so used the new In Colors - Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantalope
I stamped the images with the Pistachio Pudding using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to place them in a straight line.  Small rhinestones were placed in the little duck's eyes.

The image panel was matted first with Pistachio Pudding card stock, and then with Crisp Cantalope card stock.  Then I took a piece of 3/8" Pistachio Pudding ruffled trim and attached it to the bottom of the image panel, then stamped the sentiment underneath it.

The base card is Pistachio Pudding, layered with Whisper White card stock embossed with the Alphabet press folder.

The image panel was attached to the card using dimensionals.

The embellishments are buttons made with the new white simply pressed clay and coloured with a Crisp Cantalope marker.  A large rhinestone is placed in the center of the button.

Stamp: Embellished Event, Teeny Tiny wishes
Inks: Pistachio Pudding, Basic Black, Crisp Cantalope marker
Papers: Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Crisp Cantalope
Accessories: Alphabet Press folder, 3/8" ruffled Pistachio Pudding trim, White simply pressed clay buttons, large rhinestones, small rhinestones, dimensionals.
