It's August - Not Autumn....yet! FMS148










Oh I know it is August but Autumn has a way of sneaking up on you here in the Northeast.  This sweet starry baby card also has a hint of fall on it. The designer paper that frames the mobile from Celebrate Baby is part of a Halloween collection in the new SU! holiday catalog called Motley Monsters - some fun monster scenes backed with great designs! I used embossing paste and the new SU! Star stencil to create the stars in the background.  I scraped the paste on with a serrated plastic knife to make the ridges.

And just in case anyone around needs reminding what will be here all too soon I thought I would share my son's latest Facebook post with you....






            Jen Mitchell designed our super sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Hope you play along!

Linda... what a cute card! I love the mobile!
I don't have that set... BUT I could improvise with my umbrella set! Ya think?

PS: Please don't remind me that summer is almost over before it got here! Bummer.

Love the colors of this card and of course the layout! How did you give the stars ( on the base of the card) a striped texture? I love that look!

Oh my, I love this....so cute and I just bought this set myself! BUT....inquiring minds want to know about that cute starry background! Is it embossed, or embossing paste or WHAT?!

This is adorable, Linda! I love the starry background and the cute star clip. And how about that Halloween dsp on a baby card -- it's perfect!

What an adorable baby card. Love the way you did the star stencil with the embossing paste and serrated plastic knife. I want to try that.

You always make the sweetest baby cards! Love the "star" theme, 'cause babies sure are the star!

Is that really snow already?

Jen said...

I'm so glad you mentioned the serrated plastic knife because I was wondering how you got that wonderful texture on the stars. I'm definitely filing that info away for future use! Oh, and boo for the snow. Autumn is ok. Winter not so much.

Such a sweet baby card Linda! I love that little mobile and the stars! Love the embossing paste! I am sad to say that I agree with your son...I love the cool nights though I don't feel like we've had summer yet!

I like Diane's kdea of the umbrella for the mobile...hmm. Your card is just lovely, Linda. I just got the stars clips for a Christmas card but think I may have some other plans for them now. I love the EF and the colors you used to pull everything together perfectly as usual!

Another amazing creation, Linda! Love the embossing paste stars, the DSP and the stars in the stamped image! Very cool how you striped the stars, too!
