I've been having a play with the 'Moon Baby' stamp set from the new Occasions Catalogue. This has to be one of THE cutest stamp sets for welcoming a new baby, that Stampin' Up! have released. I'm giving you advance warning of cuteness overload!
I took up the challenge to make a baby girl card with this stamp set, after one of my lovely team members mentioned that it seemed to be primarily used in baby boy cards. In the end, I made one of each, although the second one is really gender neutral. In case you haven't seen it, here is the stamp set. It has the 3 main line images that are perfect for colouring and a number of greetings.
You could use Stampin' Write markers, the new Watercolour Pencils or ink pads and Aqua Painter to colour these cute images. I chose to use my ink pads and Aqua Painter after stamping the image in Basic Gray Archival ink onto the Shimmery White card stock. I coloured just the moon on this image. I stamped a second image on a scrap piece of Shimmery White and coloured just the baby this time. I fussy cut the image and popped it up over the baby on my art piece. I then stamped the baby again onto Blushing Bride card stock and fussy cut the onsie this time and then adhered it to the baby on my art piece.
I chose Blushing Bride as the feature colour for the card. The art piece is layered onto sparkly Blushing Bride Glimmer paper and finished with the matching stitched satin ribbon. The greeting is heat embossed in copper as it works so well with Blushing Bride. I love that Stampin' up! makes creating so easy with all the coordinating products.
This pic shows the fussy cut baby popped up with the paper pieced onsie. I added some shading to the onsie with a marker and blender pen. Isn't it a cute image.
I stamped the image of the toys on the envelope and coloured it with Copic markers. In the background, you can also see the lovely copper embossing on the greeting.
For the inside, I've stamped the other baby image onto Shimmery White card stock and water coloured it as well. I finished it with a strip of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and some tiny rhinestones on the onesie.
I made the second card in exactly the same design, but this time I used Pool Party and Silver Glimmer for a boy/gender neutral option.
Finally, here is a pic of both the colour ways together. Which is your favourite?
