Aloha Friday Challenge #26 Fairytale/Fantasy Creatures


Today starts a brand new Aloha Friday challenge at Kitty Bee Designs, we hope you'll join us for a very fun one:

Fairytale/Fantasy Creatures

Our sponsor for this challenge is the amazing:

Meljen's Designs :: Digital Stamps by Melissa Jenkins

Please stop by the blog to see the wonderfully whimsical projects the DT created.  You'll love how sweet and cute they are.  For my showcase I created 3 baby cards featuring Sleepy Moon Bear:

I kept the design fairly simple & tried to keep them all the same.  By doing this it made it easier to finish all three.  After coloring each image I used an MFT stitched circle die to cut out the image. Used a larger sized stitched circle die to cut out the striped paper.  Both matted to the base which was cut using a SB die that I embossed using a Swiss dot folder.  Added some twine and a baby button brad to the top.  The yellow paper had some nice subtle watermarks to it, but I wanted to add some nice subtle stars to tie in so I used a stubby star stamp from Stamps by Judith in Desert Sand ink.  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs.

This card has some of the same details as the one above except instead of using patterned paper I decided that the nice detail on the card was pattern enough.  I added the stars and the sentiments and changed the color of the twine.  Here is the last card in this group:

Loved that lined paper but could not resist adding a fun detail to match the sentiment so that's where the stars came in.  The dark brown really gives it a nice almost vintage look.  I'm pretty stoked because I now have three ready to use baby cards that could possibly be used for a baby shower, birth, birthday or any occasion related to babies.

Hope you'll join us for the next two weeks.  If you need an image you can choose from any of the ones in the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy store or hop on over to our sponsor's site to pick. Can't wait to see your projects!!
