New arrivals with some quilling

Well, I'm still exploring the amazing capabilities of Photoshop Elements (PSE), and came across a whole array of clip-art shapes and images in the Editing Palette.

I needed a new 'Baby Boy' card after selling my last one on Friday, and while I was about it, I decided to update my 'Baby Girl' design, too. So I imported the bear and the stork images, and had a play around to create two new backgrounds for some quilled balloons.

The bear was originally brown and white, but I eventually managed to colour in the sections and get him on to a blue background - that's a few more steps forward for me on the PSE learning curve!!  The stork I just enlarged a bit and pulled on to a pink background.  Then all I had to do was add the quilled balloons.  Next time I'm going to make the bear smaller and the blue balloon bigger for the Boy card - but at least this is a start!


  1. So cute. I think you are right about making the bear smaller in proportion to the balloon. That size though would look really cute if you quilled a pink bubble gum bubble about the size the balloon is now.

  2. Amazing!! What a great idea!! Love it!!
    Have a marvellous week!

  3. you are doing excellent with PSE those cards are adorable.

  4. such a sweet idea. Nice job Philippa.

  5. Thanks everyone! There are loads more shapes and images to use in PSE, so I'm going to keep on experimenting!
