New Baby

I have two cards to share with you today using the New Baby stamp set which was released earlier this month by Hobby Art.

I have used the set to create both the cards for a baby boy and girl. My first card today is for a New Baby Boy. To create the card I started by stamping the main centre image onto white card with a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad. I also stamped the baby image again which I later cut out and added with foam pads.

Onto the card blank I stamped small and large stars which are also part of the New Baby stamp set. I coloured the image with Distress Ink pads. I used Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass for the blue shades, I used Tattered Rose for the skin and Walnut Stain for the hair. To colour I stamped the ink pad onto a tile and then added a little water so I could use the ink to paint with. I added a strip of ribbon across the centre panel and then added that and the baby with foam pads to the card blank. To finish I added Stickles, pearls and faux stitching.

My second card is for a New Baby Girl. I used Tim Holtz Doily Stencil and a Picked Raspberry Distress Ink pad to stencil the flowery design across the card blank. I used Post-It notes to mask off the top and bottom of the card so just leaving a strip which I stencilled into.

I stamped the cute donkey with the Picked Raspberry ink pad and again used the ink pad to colour in the image. I die cut an oval and scalloped oval of white card. I coloured the scalloped with the Picked Raspberry ink pad. The other circle I stamped the words using a Memento ink pad. I added black dots around the edge of the oval. I attached the ovals and the donkey to the card with foam pads.
