Guest Designer at THE MALE ROOM: A Twins Baby Card for Boys & Happy Birthday Becca (A card for her)

As you know from this post, I am a Guest Designer for July at The Male Room

This time The Male Room has a challenge SPOTS ´N´ STRIPES:

How I made my card:

1. I have only little dots paper...also I choose my dots paper and the stripes paper..then I took a light blue paper....I cut that DP and adhere it with glue on the light blue paper. Now I have my own card base. The other brown paper I write with my hand writing the sentiment TWINS. Here is the image and all things for my card.

2.  The brown paper I write with my hand writing the sentiment TWINS and adhere it at the light blue paper.

3. The Baby onnesie, I stamped on the stripes and dots paper. And I only colored a bit with light blue copic. I will send it to my friend in Holland, she will have twins grandchildren.

Hope I can inspired you to join this time challenge at The Male Room, to join us klick HERE please :)

  1. Such lovely cards! I'm going to be a granny again next month, too, but only to ONE baby. Twins must be a lot of hard work and I'm sure granny's help will be much appreciated, so your card will give her encouragement!

  2. *Doing a happy dance* Oh I LOVE how your birthday card turned out!!! I hope you had lots of fun trying the double dipping technique. Your card looks so beautiful and I love the texture paste! I don't have that stencil yet, but you're making my want to get it. And you paper pieced onesies are sooooo adorable! Super cute! Thank you SO much for playing along with my birthday bash linkup! I've got a BIG grin all over my face. :)

  3. OH this is absolutely adorable! I love the little onsies with the little blue hearts! I'm sure your friend will love the card. I can't even begin to imagine how tough it must be with twins.

    Monika - thank you so much for being our Guest Designer this month - you've been a star! xxx

  4. Like your cards Monika! Cute paper pieced onsies to match your background and like your embossed background to match your image! congrats on your GD spot, you are in demand these days!!!

  10. You are SO creative, Monika! Love that sweet card for twins, and your second card is pure genius!!! Beautifully done - thanks for sharing! No, sad to say that my daughter won't be flying home for over a year from now. We MIGHT go to Germany to see her in late September. She thinks we'd have fun at the Oktoberfest activities. If we come, I'll be sure to let you know, so we can meet! I think we'd fly into Munich if we make the trip. Gotta count my money and see if we can afford to go! Hugs!

  11. Monika, your cards are both stunning!! Love that sweet baby card perfect for boys with the blues!! The onsies are so cute! :) Love the cool background on your second card for Becca!! Really awesome design and I know this will be something that she really loves! :)

  16. Hi Monika, I'm so happy that you are guest DT for July in The Male Room. The baby card is absolutely adorable. Love how you combined the spots and stripes papers and the soft blue/ grey looks fab with the brown. I've never seen a 'twins' card before, is it for someone in particular? The two little baby vests are perfect for baby boys.
    Thank you for being our GDT member

  20. Good Morning dear, I am so glad to see your twin card and the writing of twins around the brown paper. It really gave it a great touch. The onesies are darling and like that you used two different designs and then same for bg. Of course an awesome card.
    The birthday card for your friend is so darling. I like that flower.. You could use those flowers - at least the smaller ones on a card. It looks awesome. Know she will cherish.

  21. the twins-card is such stunnig !!! Very clever to use the 2 BGpapers also for the bodies.
    Love it !!!

    Wonderful idea to compose the card like this.
    Your birthday card is also wonderful. Your friend will be happy to reveive it.

  24. Cuuuute baby card! Lovely effect cutting the spotted and striped DP into panels. I must tell you, my sister just got a new son. So now I'm auntie to 5 sweet nephews in total. Guess I'll be making plenty of baby cards in the time to come...
