This little fella has been lingering in my stamping supplies for a while now and as there are no new babies on the way I had wondered when he would get some use. Then Elijah turned one and YES! I know what I can do.
He is filled with Love is Baby Bear. From the Falling Petals (very like little hearts) embossing folder to his Dapper Denim Heart of love at the front.
Teddy was first stamped with Soft Suede, then I stamped off with Early Espresso and finally just Early Espresso.
I must say it took me a couple practices to line him but am very happy with final results. His bow is a two step with Soft Sky followed by Dapper Denim.
The sentiment LOOK WHO’S TURNING, stamped in Emerald Envy is from the Number of Years stamp set, as is the number 1, which was stamped in Dapper Denim and cut out with the Large Number Framelit Dies.
The circle was cut with the large Stitched framelit Die. That way I get to use the circle on another project. Just located the name of the DSP — Blooms and Bliss.
The heart was from the snowflake Card thinlit die, now retired. Behind the heart is some Gold Metal thread. Apart from my Teddy practice this was a quick and simple card.
Hope you enjoyed him.
PS : This is really a post for my upline who gave me a challenge to post to some of the social media sites so always up for a challenge and here it is.!!
Just maybe as you look at this card you may think its not such a ‘cute baby card’ but this young lady is well and truly off and running!! Baby gone!! Besides I think it’s more what Mum and Dad might like really and in this case Nan and Pop as well. Inside has cuteness!
Or maybe it was me. I wanted to play with the Chalkboard paper and ColorBox© Chalk Rose Coral Ink I received recently, as well as the Big Day Stamp set which is one of the free sets in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue. I chose the lovely tulips from the Painted Blooms DSP as my background. One of my favorite flowers as it was my Granddads delight to grow them every year in Tasmania.
I first inked up the largest stamp with Brilliance Moonlight White and hand colored over that on the “Celebrate” in Coastal Cabana with the Stampin’Write pen. Stamped on to Chalkboard paper and heat set. A new addition to Stampin’up! Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig I lined up the cake after inking with the Rose chalk. Heat dried that then added the candle, again I inked with the Brilliance then some Daffodil Delight that gave a subtle yellow. Heat dried again. I think using these inks have given the desired chalky effect. I quickly cut out the image, rounded the corners and mounted it onto some Blushing Bride.
The rest of the sentiment was stamped with the coral chalk and punched out with the oval punch before backing with Blushing Bride card stock. I mounted both pieces with some dimensionals onto the DSP that had been glued to a Blushing Bride Note Card , added a Bakers Twine bow and card complete. OH! Just a pearl on the end of the Ice cream ! Who doesn’t love Ice cream.
Bye till next time.
Thanks for stopping bye.
