Hi Stampers, so friends of mine (fellow Stampin’ Bloggers) are on a brand new design team – Global Design Team. In order to congratulate them, I’ve decided to play along. They have changed us to use three Stampin’ Up! colors: Smoky Slake, Pink Pirouette and So Saffron.
Here is the baby card I created using those colors. They just said “Baby Girl” to me… The card base is Smoky Slate – 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″. Next is a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Pink Pirouette card stock followed by a 5″ x 3.75″ layer of Whisper White card stock. I used the Stampin’ Up! Something for Baby stamp set and colored directly on the stamp with my Smoky Slate & So Saffron Stampin’ Write markers for the baby carriage and duck. Using a scrap of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the baby onesie in Pink Pirouette ink and stamped the heart in the middle of the shirt with Pink Pirouette.
Stampin’ Tip: Even though the onesie was Pink Pirouette, the heart (stamped in the same color) appears darker because it’s stamped on top. It gives a tone on tone effect. Much like stamping any of our inks onto a card stock of the same color.
I used Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write markers to color the hanger and stamped the “Welcome Baby” from the very useful And Many More stamp set, from Stampin’ Up!
I cut out the onesie using the matching Baby’s First framelit set and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. Since every girl needs a little bling, I used my two way glue pen and some dazzling diamonds glitter to accent several areas and then added a string of pearls around the neck of the onesie.
I hope I did the new challenge justice.
