Krista is Back!!!

Hello!  I was so excited to see that Krista Smith started a Patreon and is offering exclusive character art for download to her patrons!  I am one of her biggest fans and this is amazing news!  While I have continued to use her images from my beloved collection of digis, I missed there being new images available!  This will satisfy all her fans who love to color her art as there are different tiers (ranging from $5-$25) you can sign up to pledge per month.  The exclusive rewards vary for each tier so you decide what you want and what works best for you!  If you want to check it out and/or sign up, visit her page HERE!

I have a backlog of cards made with her images that need to be blogged.  My design teams tend to keep me so busy that I put off blogging the other things I create.  I thought I should probably start trying to rectify that!  I needed a baby card for an order for a baby shower.  This is what I came up with.  I cropped and colored one of Krista's images from my stash.  This gorgeous momma-to-be is called New Love.  Can I just say...?  OMG, THAT HAIR!  It was a little daunting at first but I was really pleased with how it turned out!  This card was for a first time mom having a "rainbow" baby (a full-term pregnancy after a miscarriage) so I added the rainbow but it also works well for a regular baby shower as well.  The stitched rainbow die is from My Favorite Things Stamps.  The image is cut and matted with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  All the other dies are La-La Land Crafts.  I dry embossed the background panel for some added texture.  The word baby is a chipboard sentiment from Make It Crafty.

I also made a baby boy version, changing my colors and using a SugarPea Designs die cut to make the baby part of the sentiment.
