Papertake Sketchy Challenge ...and a Baby Blog Hop!

 

 

 

Morning crafters, thanks for stopping by!

I have the new Papertake Weekly challenge today and also an exciting blog hop to celebrate the launch of the 10 new adorable new Baby stamps from Lili of the Valley

The stamps will be available to buy on the website on Monday and also at the Christmas party in Leeds on Saturday if you are able to come along

 

*

It’s a Sketchy free for all this week at Papertake, as always there is a brand new sketch for you #85

 

 

You can use this one, or you can pick from the back catalogue (see them all here)

I chose number 71…

 

 

and I used one of the new baby stamps for my card

 

PTW 35 - Sketch 71

 

I love this image, he’s sooo cute!

I used candles and cake papers (fab bright colours for children's cards), sentiment from simply sophisticated and the border die is Magnolia Doohickey

 

***

 

Onto the blog hop and you know what to do by now, just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration for using these cute new images

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog

We will let you know tomorrow which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

There are 2 full sets of the new stamps up for grabs (woohoo!)…

2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new designs and there will be a 3rd prize of a clear set of baby companion stamps


Here's a list of all the blogs on the hop, you’ll need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning some of the hidden goodies;

I made a little gift card holder for today's hop, Lou made one of these a while back which I loved, I’ve been intending to make something similar for ages…

 

Bunny Moon 7      Bunny Moon 3

 

I used some gorgeous Tilda papers that I’ve had in my box and couldn’t bear to cut!

The teeny little shoes from the new launch are great for using as embellishments, this is one of the pairs from the girls set

 

Bunny Moon     Bunny Moon 2

 

I made a little pocket on the inside and a card using Bunny Moon stamp, you can tuck a little gift card in here also

The alphabet is a Sizzix die and the flag banner is LaLa land

 

Bunny Moon 6      Bunny Moon 5

 

 

 Bunny Moon 4   

 

Hope you like it! ‘hop’ along to Becky's blog next  …and if you get lost just start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there

Don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes

 

Enjoy the hop!
