Hello and Happy Friday! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are featuring baby cards. Not owning any current baby-themed stamp sets proved to be an obstacle for me this week, but I decided to go in a non-traditional direction and used this lovely piece of DSP from the Botanical Butterfly pack (a free Sale-a-Bration selection!!) with bright flirty flamingo. I paired it with some of the images and sentiment from the Hedgehugs set as well as the Hand-Lettered Alphabet stamp set.
Here is another view of the card - it's a very simple layout that features the beautiful designer paper. The scalloped tag punch was used to cut out the baby sentiment and then I added some flowers at the bottom. Check out the ribbon - it is the gorgeous Petal Pink/Whisper White variegated ribbon from the Occasions catalog. It is super pliable and easy to tie and works perfectly with this color combination.
Here is a close-up of the sentiment panel - I cut it out using the Scalloped Tag punch and then I added some flowers at the bottom that were colored with the flirty flamingo, petal pink and old olive stampin' write markers. Check out the ribbon - it is the gorgeous Petal Pink/Whisper White variegated ribbon from the Occasions catalog. It is super pliable and easy to tie and works perfectly with this color combination. I cut out the Adorable You sentiment with the Classic Label punch after stamping it with flirty flamingo ink pad.
Here is one last view of my card. I love how this card turned out - it just goes to show that you can use non-baby stamps to create a baby card. For even more fabulous baby card ideas and inspiration, please hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to see what my fellow designers created this week.
