Kitty Bee Designs - Monday Spotlight

Morning everyone!

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments on my last post for the KBD blog hop.  You're all too kind.  If you haven't been by the KBD blog or the Etsy store then you're missing out on the new February release.  For all the details and a chance to win a digital image from the new release make sure to head on over to the KBD blog where it all begins.

With today being the first Monday of the month that means spotlight time for me on the Kitty Bee Designs blog!  Today I get to share another project featuring an adorable image from the Etsy store

Now my project is a baby girl card I made for my co-worker and his wife, who happens to be an ex co-worker of mine.  They recently had a little girl and this being their first baby I wanted to make something special that they could enjoy.  I'm using this sweet image, Balloon Flying Panda, because it seemed fitting for them.  If you knew where I work then you would understand why. 


Had so much fun making this one.  Used a lot of textures to give it a little more dimension and fun.  The balloons are cut with dies from CC Designs as are the rosette and the clouds.  I used felt for the rosette and the clouds and colored burlap paper for the balloons.  The dp is a pretty light blue with white flowers from Prima (Meadow Lark).  I loved tate color of blue, reminded me of a sky with clouds.  Speaking of clouds I created some subtle ones right behind the panda with a stencil I made, Tumbled Glass distress ink and a Ranger sponge with a wooden handle.  Here's a close-up... 


I added a gem to the center of the rosette and a spray of gems.  The white and silver twine is from Daiso and has a really pretty sparkle to it.  Here's another picture...


The Prima paper is pretty yea?  I finally cut in to it and glad I did.  I'm trying to use what I have as part of my crafting therapy.  (hahaha)  I matted it on to white cardstock on to pink shimmer cardstock and then on to a white card.  Here's a shot of the burlap balloons.  Love the bright colors, too bad it only comes in these four colors. And you'll see the sparkle in the twine...  Love it!

 
I had a lot of fun putting this one together using lots of textures.  So cute that she's flying through the air with only 4 balloons I added four more on the side for fun.  I think I chose the perfect image to showcase today.  Can't wait to give them this card.


Don't forget that we're having a blog hop for the new release.  You have until Friday, Feb 7th to hop around and comment for a chance to win a digi from the new release. 

Mahalo for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hugs,
Leanne

This card for your ex-coworker and his wife turned out fab. I love everything about this card. I especially love the clouds, balloons, and the rosette. Die cutting felt for the clouds is such a great idea. Happy crafting Leanne! Hugs!
