Sweet Baby Card
I have a box full of Odd Bird Planet stamps that have been sitting on my counter, having yet to see ink, for months! Good gracious, what have I been waiting for? Last night, as I fought the cold that I just knew was creeping up on me (hello cold, nice to see you here today), I decided to relax in the stamping room. No rush to finish a design project, no need to finish any birthday, anniversary, or get well cards, just a time to sit and play with my "new" stamps that are now about three months old! This adorable stock is part of a fairly recent OBP release that included a number of delightful baby images. Since my stash is lacking in baby-themed stamps I decided to order a few over the summer. Pairing this image with some adorable Crate baby print paper was perfect! And I know I say this all the time but, my goodness, I love Crate paper!! It's thick, it's textured, it's a pure delight...Now go out there and buy some doggone it! This paper pack included a few darling paper "ribbons." For this card I used the scalloped bee design. The stock is colored with Copics (Hey, I'm taking a Copic certification class in March...I cannot wait!!) and the little baby bundle in the stock's mouth was paper pieced with some more luscious Crate paper. The scalloped circle and button was added behind/on top of the stock for a little extra "umph." And I finished the card off with my all time favorite rub on sentiments from Stampin' Up! Now...I just need to find someone who is having a baby...Anyone?
