Sweet New Arrival

Published by at 9:36 am under My Creations

Happy Weekend Everyone!!! A friend of mine is due with a baby girl in the next few weeks, so I thought I’d make her a card NOW so I am not scrambling when she’s here! 🙂 I just LOVE this Baby Talk set from Stampin’ Up! Not too often I get to use it, so it was fun! The Well Worn Flannel is just so cozy too, I want a blanket that looks like it! 🙂

I started by stampin’ the carraige on watercolor paper and coloring it with my blender pen. I outlined it with a Pixie Pink Marker. I then outlined it lightly outlined it with Barely Banana and blender pen to make it jump out! I learned that trick from one of my stampin’ hero’s Trudee. Then I matted it and did some faux sewing and added the ribbon on the handle.

For the background I stamped the flannel in pretty in pink onto whisper white paper. Stamped the sentiment on white and added a pixie pink border. I then connected some pretty in pink with the sentiment and “sewed” it together. When it was all put together I added the prima’s! 🙂
