The first two cards I'm sharing feature the new Sweet Baby Bibs dies. This set gives you many different options to create little paper bibs and embellishments for baby cards and tags.
The uniquely shaped panel in the background was created with the new Cornered Fresh Cuts dies. There's a few different corner options in the set. I used the scalloped corner dies to create a fun panel to layer behind the bibs on these two cards. As you can see I made one with more girly colors and one with boy colors. However these bibs would look so cute in any colors you choose. For the greeting, I've used a stamp from the Just Sentiments Welcome mini set. This stamp set has many sweet greetings perfect for baby cards. This next card showcases the new Psalm Reflections for May and Into the Blooms: Geraniums.
My absolute favorite color of Geraniums are bright fuchsia. I plant some every year in the flower pots on my back patio. So naturally I had to make my Geraniums that color for this card.
I die cut the petals and leaves from water color card stock and then added the color. I really wasn't too particular how I applied the water color. It's rather messy and with lots of splatter detail. The watercolor paint set I used for this card is a recent addition to my coloring arsenal. I ordered them from Amazon on a whim and couldn't be happier with the quality and assortment of colors.

The leaf images adorning the top of the card are from a new stamp set called Corner Decor. There's many different corner images in the set and they all have coordinating dies.
