Like I said, we have a baby naming to go to tomorrow so today was the day to get the card done. Luckily, I made a baby album as a gift awhile ago so there was no mad dash to get that done, thank goodness!
I recently got two stamp sets from Paper Smooches (PS) that are perfect for the job at hand. One is Pip Squeaks and the other is Word Up. I stamped the baby, bear and clothespins on white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. (Fussy cutting those clothespins was a challenge... good thing I had Micro dots for gluing them in place.) I even stamped a clothespin on top of the baby's head to look like a lock of hair peeking out of the bow. Lol. The clothes and sentiment were stamped on an old scrap of Basic Grey paper. I love that it was a collage of pinks. The grass is from a Photo Stack set by DCWV. I just snipped it up to look more like grass on the card.
The patterned paper background is one of my favorites from a Designer Series set by Stampin Up called Domestic Goddess. (It's still available HERE as a digital download.) How cool is it that I could start my card with a base that already had a clothesline with clothes on it? The sun in the corner is from one of the other sheets in the set and it is a throwback to the days that my sister and I used to draw little outdoor scenes and always had a sun peeking out of the corner. *smile* I think this qualifies for the latest PS Sparks Challenge to use patterned paper on a project.
Thanks for dropping in. I have a silly card idea tickling my brain so I have to make it soon. Check back sometime to see.... In the meantime, have a nice weekend!
