Best of Brides & Babies—Let The Cute Begin


Hi Stamping Friends!

I've got the second card from my May Best of 25 Years Club projects to show you today featuring the Best of Brides & Babies set.  See the first card yesterday: Sparkling Bride & Groom.

Aren't they too CUTE?!!  Haha!  The "Let The Cute Begin Image" is perfect for baby showers, congratulations and welcome baby cards, and even for scrapbooks!

I started with a Lucky Limeade (retiring) card base, texture embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.  Next, I added a 2-1/2" x 4-1/4" panel of Pretty In Pink (also retiring) to the front where the focal point will eventually go.

I stamped the image twice in StazOn Black: once on a 2-3/4” x 1-1/2” Whisper
White piece, and once on a scrap of Tea For Two Designer Series Paper, strategically positioned to get the green stripes.

I used Island Indigo Classic Ink and Blender Pens to color in the letters.  Notice that I applied more ink to the top of the letters and faded the color toward the bottom. 

I cut out the greed striped onesie, colored in the heart on the front with more Island Indigo, then popped it up with Dimensionals.

The whole element is layered on a 3" x 1-3/4" Island Indigo mat.

I finished off the card by adding matching 5-1/2” x 1” strip of Tea For Two DSP layered on a 5-1/2" x 1-1/4" mat of Island Indigo.  Before adhering, I tied a Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine around it.

Second card, same elements…just changed up the way I colored the focal point.

This time, I colored the letters with Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and Pretty in Pink.  The onesie was stamped on a different part of the Tea For Two paper for a pink/blue outfit.

I intentionally designed the card to be gender-neutral, so it's works for when you don't know if it's a boy or a girl.
