One for a girl, one for a boy ...

I haven't been on form with my crafting recently... my attempts to learn to crochet are floundering due to an inability to understand the patterns and my card making doesn't seem to be very successful!  But I've not given up just yet - although the crochet is hidden away!!

I have managed to create some cards this morning and managed to photograph them in daylight.

First up - are two baby cards based on the same design.  These were inspired by this week's challenge at "Less is More" where the theme is "Little Ones".  A baby card was the first idea (and only idea!) that came to mind.

I die cut the feet five times in total and adhered them together to give some dimension before placing them on some cream cardstock layered onto a scrap of blue card.

I followed the same steps for the hands:

I used:
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Signature Dies - Hands Feet and Paws
Simon Says Stamp - Handwritten Borders

I'm going to enter these challenges:
"Less is More" - Lucky Dip Week,  Little Ones
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge 129, Clean and Simple



  1. What cute die cuts. Off to check them out! Thanks for the very cute inspiration!

  2. These look fab Elaine! I love the depth you've achieved on the hands and feet - at first I thought they were made from Fimo.


  3. They are both super cute Elaine.
    I think we all go through a creative famine now and again and this miserable weather doesn`t help. It`ll all come good in the end. If todays showing is anything to go by I really don`t think you have anything to worry about.
