Sweet Baby Boy - BBTB Train Challenge

Happy Monday to you all!!! Did you know that over at the Bitten by the Bug site Regina has a new challenge every week? Please check it out and join in!! This week she asked us to use the train from the Cricut New Arrival cartridge. What an adorable little train it is too. CHUGGA CHUGGA CHOO CHOO!!!
Since trains usually make me think of boys, I decided to go with a baby boy card. I used some Autumn Leaves baby boy papers that I just got at my LSS......THANKS Nana...and then I just used some cardstock that brought some of the colors of the patterned paper out.
I used Diamond Glaze on all the train cars...that stuff is so cool!!!! If you haven't tried you should and if you need some we have it over at the Hallmark Scrapbook store.
I used the Cricut cartridge All Mixed Up for "sweet" and "boy" and then used the New Arrival cartridge for the "baby" blocks. The very top piece is the negative from one of the Cricut Accent Essentials frames...I thought the shape reminded me of the little symbol that is associated with a train...you know...the top part of it....anyways, I cut it in half ans used it for the top of my card.
Here is another shot of the whole train all glossy and shining. I decided to use buttons for the wheels to really make them stand out...Oh, and I even glazed the smoke coming out of the engine!!
Well, that's about it for my train card....I hope you enjoyed it and I also hope you have a wonderful week too...come back soon...I was really productive yesterday and got several cards done and ready to post. Have a great day!!!

Pin It!
