Two By Two

When I first saw this ADORABLE stamp in the new 2012-2013 catalogue, I just KNEW I had to have it! Of course, it took a couple of months for to actually see ink, but today is the day! It's so completely cute! Check this out:



Adorable, right? I took out my watercolour crayons (which also haven't seen the light in a few months!) and coloured in the image using them and my aqua painters. I then decided on Bashful Blue and Marina Mist for the card itself. Since baby boys won't care so much about ribbon, I decided to add a piece of Whisper White Taffeta and secure it with a Marina Mist button (I stopped short of using a flower - LOL!)

On the inside of the card, I used the Confetti stamp set. I think a lot of people discount this stamp set, but it can be used for SO many things...like this:


I stamped around the edge of the Whisper White layer first in Bashful Blue and then in Marina Mist.

You could also use this set to make a tone on tone background for your card, using Versamark Ink.

What do you think?

  2. This is beautiful, love the watercolouring! I bought this stamp in my first order but still haven't mounted it; I think you've just given me that kick-in-the-butt! Although I may do a girl version for a family baby due any day now!
