Welcome little one - Sneak Peeks Day Two

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all enjoying the sneak peeks from the Crafter's Companion DT. These new stamps will be available to buy from Friday and will be featured on TV at the weekend. I have used my favourite of the new stamp sets for this card which I made using the Crafter's Companion Top Score board. Te papers are from the Humphrey CDs and I used my MS Cherish PATP set. I used one of the stamping tags from the CD with one of the sentiments and small pic from the stamp set and a pretty brad.

I coloured the images with the lovely new Spectrum Noir pens. I used BG1, CG1 and CG0.5 for Humphrey and 62, 64 and 68 for his robe.

I would like to enter this into the challenges at:
Simon SaysShaped card
Hooked on Craft Cute and cuddly
Moving along with the times Cute and cuddly with a punch

For my second card I just used the small image with the same sentiment. I embossed some Tim Holtz Core'dinations with a Darice frame embossing folder both available from Crafter's Companion. I cut out the middle of the frame and placed the image underneath and raised the embossed front with foam pads. I then spent ages looping the ribbon until I was happy with it and added some baby pearl buttons. I don't often leave my buttons naked but they didn't look right otherwise. A little bit of faux stitching and job done.

I would like to enter these challenges:
Truly Scrumptious Buttons and bows
Wags n Whiskers Buttons and bows
