Two New Babies!

Hi Everyone,
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL
 
Thanks to and inspired by Pops,  I am now seriously going to try to make more CAS cards. They are certainly not as easy as they look!
 
I have used 2 of the new Lili Of The Valley baby stamps, Cosy Pram and Balloon Basket. Stamped onto Watercolour 350gsm card and coloured with Distress Inks. The sentiment is also from a LOTV set.
 

I used a watercolour pen, to squiggle a line around the card, very roughly. I used Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA - Dusky Pink, for the little raised dots.
 
The sparkles are of course, Star Dust Stickles.

 
You can use either stamp for boy or girl. I think next time I use the balloon stamp, I will definitely stamp the balloon twice and 3D it.
 
 
This is the first time I have made the pictures x-large. Could only do so on the blue card. The pink one went over onto the side panel. Shows they are a bit blurry! Please let me know what you think. Not too rude though!!

 
I am going to enter one into some challenges, as it is my New Year resolution. You will see if I keep to it!Lol!!
 

Challenges
Crafty Little Fairies - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Old, New Borrowed, Blue
 
I hope you are all ready to see the New Year in. We just like to sit and watch the fireworks at midnight and then go to bed. Boring I know but I am too knackered to do anything else!
 
So Happy New Year to all who visit my blog.
 
Maybe some more of you can join me as followers next year. I aim to get to 100 followers next year, so will need your help.
 
The biggest of hugs to you all,
 
Carol S.xx

Two gorgeous cards and you have made them perfect cas cards too, not easy I know. Love these new babies. Much better with bigger pic. I can see why you can't make them any bigger, it is because you have three columns. I have two so can make mine extra large. With my DT hat on thanks for playing at CLF. Happy New Year x

I think you've done a fantastic job with these new stamps, your water colouring and touch of stickles is gorgeous.
We enjoy a quiet New Year too, leave the partying to the young 'uns. I also intend to enter more challenges and hopefully have more followers in the New Year as I've only been blogging for five months and am still quite new to it.
Enjoy the fireworks and Happy New Year !
