Beautiful Baby

I'm making a set of 3 baby cards for a woman who expressed interest in buying some. Hopefully, she'll be pleased. Here's my first effort -- I was looking for a gender neutral, simple look. I like the way this came out -- if my potential customer doesn't buy it, I know I'll use it myself. Supplies: Memory Box Sage Duplex Card and checked paper from its Homespun collection; Stampin Up Mini Mates Stamp Set, cream ribbon, brad, lilac cardstock and ink; Impression Obsession words. (I wish I had lilac ribbon, but the cream was a good substitute.) A little trick for easy placement of a small wood mounted stamp -- I took the stamp off the wood mount, slapped it on my acrylic block, stamped 3 times, and put it right back on the wood! I'm not sure how many times I could do this without wrecking the stamp, but it sure came in handy for these little safety pins. (I know I could use the stamp - ma - jig, but I'd have to find it first!!)

  1. Very cute! I've considered taking some of my wood mounted off and using them with the acrylics, especially since some are coming off the blocks now, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to take the plunge yet :-)
