Embellish Magazine, Babies Color Challenge

Well, SayDie is at it again!  We had so much fun participating in the previous Embellish Magazine Challenge, that we decided to go for it again.  This challenge is all about babies; celebrating the birth of a new life.  SayDie is all too familiar with being moms, especially since both parts of SayDie are fairly new moms (Dru, 2 and Miles, 1).  So, we were super excited to create a very special card for a very special occasion.  The adorable little ducky was stamped on patterned dot paper and we used pop dots to raise off the page.  The dot stamp in the background was created with an adhesive stamp pad and Martha Stewart's ultrafine glitter.  Hope you enjoy the card and please, leave a comment.  Thanks!!

Embellish Magazine, Labels Color Challenge

Well, it's been a very long time since SayDie has participated in an online challenge and we are excited!  This is our very first participation in one of the Embellish Magazine challenges.  We used Papertrey Ink's In Bloom stamp to create the beautiful focal flower and Copic markers to color it in.  Also, this was our very first time using Copics.  I know, how exciting, two first in one blog post, you totally can't beat that!  The metal dream label was purchased some time ago at Michael's and was in the stash, so we decided to go with it.  We hand punched circles to create the scalloped edge that you see underneath the ribbon.  Very simple card, but purposeful, especially since it's around graduation time.  Hope you like the card, and please, let us know what you think.  Also, check us out on Facebook, we would love to have some friends and followers on our blog.  Have a Happy Thursday.
