Welcome Baby



Hi everyone.  Here is my design team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More #46 - Anything Goes.  I made a CAS baby card using my new Gingham wheel stamp from SU! ... coral ink onto blushing bride cardstock (LOVE this color combo!).  Hope you like.







Prize:  2 sheets of digis (8 images)
(please follow the rules of the challenge to be eligible to win)

Whoopsi Daisy will be sponsoring the whole month of May 2013



Stamps:  Short and Sweet; Gingham wheel stamp (SU!)
Paper:  White, Blushing Bride (SU!)
Ink:  Calypso Coral (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Die-namics Highrise Alphabet (Lowercase) dies (MFT), Mandarin Twine (The Twinery), Stamp-a-ma-jig, adhesives, and dimensionals

I inked my gingham stamp with coral and ran it over my blushing bride cardstock several times to create lots of gingham paper to work with.  As you can see in the close-up view below, I didn't take any time to line up the gingham when die-cutting the letters ... I like that they have character. :)

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement of my "welcome" (stamped in Coral ink) and then popped up the "baby" letters for added dimension.




Here's a close-up of the main part of the card:

What a great wheel stamp! First glance made me think you had used patterned paper. It is really beautiful Loll! xx

Fab way to make gingham paper, really creative and far more fun than just using the ready made gingham. Gorgeous baby card x

Cute baby card, I love the colors! One could never tell the gingham pattern is hand made -looks so professional and like store bought patterned paper!

Sorry to be late to the party Loll! My home computer is at the shop being fixed and it takes forever. I had to laugh when i read that you used a Stampamajig.....because I was feeling envois when I looked at your perfectly placed sentiments! (Happy Bee-day)......and I love this card. Clean and simple and smart to use the plaid like that!
