Good Tuesday morning to y’all! Hope you’re having a good week so far.
Me? I’m off in a couple of hours for a business trip to Hunstville – back on Friday! So I’ve been trying to get a little ahead on cards – since taking all my stuff for 3 days is…ridiculous!!
That would be crazy.
Speaking of crazy – my living room floor looks like a paper factory exploded in it. Courtesy of…yes. You got it. The Paper Pilferer.
I think that picture pretty much says it all, don’t you?? 😉
My card for today is a study in timing! I was sitting at my craft table yesterday afternoon when my husband’s nephew called to tell him they’d had their baby! A little boy. At that exact moment, I was holding the Moon Baby stamp set in my hands and all of a sudden I had an actual reason to make another baby card! So…I pulled out some Floral Boutique DSP and the So Detailed Thinlits, and…take a look-see:
I’d also already decided on a color scheme cuz I thought the color challenge over at Just Us Girls would be just perfect for a baby card.
Now, this is in celebration of the arrival of a little boy – but if they’d had a little girl – the card design would still be just fine. Just use pink DSP on the card front and a Night of Navy mat. 🙂
I started with a piece of Floral Boutique DSP that makes me sort of think of a night sky, and SNAILd it to a Pink Pirouette mat for the card front. Not to worry – this little dude’s going to be very secure in his manhood. Pink won’t be a problem! 🙂
Next up, I cut a Whisper White panel to the width of the card front (3 7/8″) and then cut out the So Detailed Thinlits die. Onto the center – which is a really handy size for a lot of sentiments! – I stamped the Moon Baby sentiment in Night of Navy, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.
I stamped the ever-so-cute image from Moon Baby in Smoky Slate on some Whisper White card stock. I colored the baby – using the lid of my Night of Navy ink pad lid and an Aqua Painter for his onesie…and the Melon Mambo Watercolor Pencil and a Blender Pen for his face and hands. Using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush I brushed the moon to give it some moonshine. Then I fussy cut the image.
I popped the baby and moon onto the top of my card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I took the little star die from the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits, and cut out a bunch of Silver Glimmer Paper stars. I wanted to have his string be 3-dimensional, so I took a length of Night of Navy Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered the end onto his hand and used a thin line of Liquid Glue to adhere it down the card front. At the bottom, I added one of my Silver Glimmer stars with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I tied two eensy-weensy bows and adhered one at his hand and one at the star.
I popped my So Detailed Thinlit sentiment over the card front with Dimensionals, added the remainder of the stars with Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I added the second Moon Baby sentiment in Night of Navy, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. Using the three-star image from Moon Baby, I stamped the stars over the sentiment in Smoky Slate – stamping it off once before I stamped the card. And I added a few more Silver Glimmer stars.
I SNAILd it to a Pink Pirouette mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
I scattered a bunch of Smoky Slate Moon Baby stars across the front of a Medium Whisper White envelope…
…and gave the envelope flap some more of the Floral Boutique DSP.
Et Voila! Seriously – how cute is this little baby sleeping so peacefully on his sliver of moon? This set has several sweet sentiments and images – suitable for the arrival of a new tiny human or a shower for said tiny human! Hope you like! 🙂
