Believe in your Dreams; Welcome New Baby; Welcome to the World Little Angel & Celebrate

 Big title, four cards so a bit photo heavy in the posts well as the title :)

This first card is using a NBUS dreamweaver die. I was looking for a die that would look good using washi tape on a piece of cardstock and cutting through the cardstock to make this:

Impossible to get a good photo of how fantastic this looks having used the same washi tape as I
used on my Easter card in my last post. I just added the strips so that the colour moved across the piece of card stock so that the colour wasn't in a straight up and down look, rather diagonally. The great thing about washi is that if it doesn't line up properly as long as you are careful you can lift and retry again and again. I wanted the edges as close as possible so that when pressed down hard it looked like one piece.

The lower colours that aren't showing well here are purple, blue through to pink.
Added by just running my tape along the back of the die cut and moved till I was happy. Then added
the sentiment (sorry not sure where its from) 'Believe in your Dreams'.

This card was lots of stamping from a baby set of stamps (I think it is Papertrey) and was one I bought a long time ago. I stamped with Distress ink in pink onto paper I thought looked good for a baby girl, moving the stamp around so I captured the butterflies onto the baby suits. This paper has a little glitter and gloss on it and the other was just a red and white check but looked good.

I don't have a die for this stamp but very easy to fussy cut and of course I did so many I have another 100 (maybe a bit of an exaggeration) little girl suits. Now of course I need to do some in blues and neutrals.... another day. Added the baby suits in a line as though strung on a line.

Finished it off with this cute little 'welcome' die cut  from Paper Smooches in white and brushed with some Spun Sugar Distress ink to give the two colour look. Stamped 'new baby' and its finished.

Next up is this card that was even easier. I used a piece of pattern paper (watercolour look) and die cut the little sentiment 'Welcome to the World Little Angel'. Before adding the sentiment back into the negative from the die cut I added a rectangle of white sparkle paper.

Glued the sentiment back into place and finished it off with the little clear gem teddy bear.

This one was lots of colouring. Fabulous cake stamp and die from Concord 9. Coloured with copics.

This is a chocolate cake with salted caramel cream ok. Used white gel pen to add the centres back into the flowers. I then die cut the coloured image, a layer in foam and a layer in pink vellum.
Added  the image direct to the foam layer but at a slight shift to the right on the vellum so it looks
like shadow.

Cut 'celebrate' out twice, copic coloured the bottom layer too dark thats why I added another layer with very light pink at the bottom but at slight shift so the other is visible. It works for me.

These are all real knockouts of cards Aileen! Love all the themes you managed to get in. Your LIM card is so incredibly beautiful with that washi tape- the rainbow colours are really iridescent. Super job of lining the tapes up too - I know how hard that is! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

In one post so many stunning cards! I can not say which card I like best, because each one is amazing. The cake has great coloring and beautifully composed sentiment. The baby card is so cute. Dreams have amazing colors and shine. Another card is such a delicate, pink-blue color scheme perfectly blends with white sparkle paper. I love them all.
