Sunday is sweet
I admit it...I broke down and used my new craft table before I shellaced it. I couldn't help it! It is THE place to stamp in my room and I needed a baby card stat! Karen has her awesome challenge every Sunday so I used her sketch for my card. It isn't always a good idea to put your entire card together before you have a focal point image....but I tend to do it alot. I absolutely love DSP so that tends to be where I start. Then I have to hunt for a stamp to top it all off.
This may be my only 'official' baby stamp. I will have to look through all my stuff....but it works! It is from the new all occasions set Easy Events. I love stamp sets that have lots of images for all different occasions. This little ducky is adorable and so are the rest of the images. Its also a great starter set if you are just getting into card making.
I used retired DSP (sorry) from the Cottage Wall collection. I love the Rich Razzleberry color paired with all the greens. Purple and green! My favorite! I figured it would work for a baby boy...
I colored my ducky in with my SU Markers. I stamped the umbrella onto a piece of the DSP where it was solid RR and cut it out. It is stuck on with a dimensional and dotted with the white gel pen.
I noticed several cards at convention this year that used Vanilla paper with White paper. I always thought that was kind of taboo. Kind of like....no white shoes in the winter and all that. But, apparently, a new law has been passed that allows those two colors to play nice together. I kind of like the vanilla silk ribbon on here with my white paper. The base is a Vanilla Naturals piece. White and vanilla. Kind of like french vanilla ice cream with whip topping....yeah, I could do that....:o)
