Little Boy Overalls

Good afternoon, hope you're having a great weekend. It's a cold, windy, rainy day here....perfect for posting some more on my blog.

The Little Girl Dress I posted yesterday was a huge hit, but I would get the occasional comment wishing there was one for the boys. So, I made an overall template!!!...for the boys (including my

The finished card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Overalls #1.

This is my favourite by far. For starters, I have a soft spot for frogs....maybe from watching Kermit the Frog as a little girl....ahhh, memories. But I digress, back to the card. The shirt I cut out of textured CS, I used CTMH's Fun Times Stamp Set for the frog. For the patch and belt loops, I inked the same CS I used for the overalls. And I used CTMH's Black Bitty Brads for the frog's eyes.
Recipe: CTMH Bamboo CS & Ink, CTMH Textured White Daisy CS, Frog(CTMH Garden Green CS, CTMH New England Ivy Ink), CTMH chocolate grosgrain ribbon.

Overalls #2.
I made a pair that you could use for a baby announcement or shower. I used It's A Boy Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss It's a Boy on the pant leg. I then masked it, and went over it with a rubber brayer to highlight the words. The giraffe is from Cuttlebug's die cut Zoo Animals set. I finished it off with a button.
Recipe: CTMH Heavenly Blue CS, CTMH Sweet Pea Paper Pack, CTMH Buttercup CS, CTMH Outdoor Denim Ink, CTMH Summer Buttons (retired), Cuttlebug (It's A Boy EF, Zoo Animals DC).

Overall #3.
Of course I had to make a pair that looks worn out....boys do play hard, lol. This was the quickest of the bunch to make. I sanded CTMH paper until the white core showed through. I just love, love, LOVE, CTMH CS. I used a sponge and ink to give the shirt some texture, and then finished it off with some buttons.

Recipe: CTMH Indian Corn Blue CS, CTMH Outdoor Denim Ink, Dollarama buttons.

Overall #4.
For the last pair of overalls, I tried to keep it fairly simple. For some reason, I couldn't seem to capture the true colour of this pair. It's more vibrant IRL.
Recipe: CTMH Crystal Blue CS, CTMH Outdoor Denim Ink, LSS paper, paper punch.

Here's the template I created for the overalls:
