Wee Stamps Birthday Boy...

Good afternoon, Bloggers!  My, what a day we're having!  So far this morning, we've had thunder and lgihtning, hail storms, torrential rain and now...sunshine!  Well, we're on Day 3 of 2014 and I'm here to share my first crafty creation of the year!
...I treated myself to a few Wee Stamps digis over the Christmas holidays and this little cutie was one of them!  As soon as I saw him, I knew I wanted to put him with a large number, so decided to make a shaped easel card...
...I used First Edition, Dreamcatcher and Animal Antics paper pads, plus a stripe from the snowman card on 12 Cards of Christmas CD-Rom.  I created the different layers for the number 2 in PS and printed onto the reverse of the cardstock, then cut out by hand...
...I coloured the cute little boy image with my Pro/Flexmarkers (being a Letraset girl!) and paper pieced his onesie with a paper from the baby card on A Year in Cards CD-Rom.  Here's the colour list I used :
Skin - Satin, Blush, Dusky, Sunkissed Pink
Hair - Linen, Light Fawn, Champagne, Sandstone, Nutmeg
Baby Gro - Soft Mauve, Blue Pearl, Dove Grey
Cake - Satin, Tan, Shale, Ivory, Vanilla
Mouse - Cool Grey 1, 3, 4, Muted Pink, Tea Rose, Watermelon
Cherry - Vermillion, Maroon
...I added a touch of glitter, some small polka dot buttons and some die cut stars, matted onto silver to embellish.
I have also bought the little Birthday Girl image too, which I've made a 1st Birthday card with (I'll share it soon as I'm waiting for some flowers to arrive from WOC to see if I want to add any to it!)  If I had used my brain (doesn't happen very often!) I would've realised that it would have been much better to use the images on the opposite cards as a friend's little girl is 2 this month and another friend's little boy is one...doh!  Oh well, it just means I'll have to make another two cards in what is one of the busiest birthday months for our family!  At least it means more crafty creations to share with all you lovely Bloggers!  Thanks for dropping by to see me today and I hope to be back with you all again soon!
Big crafty Hugs,
Lisa x
