Yay! I got the email that I needed to make more baby cards. So, late last night, around 10 pm after receiving the email I headed right down to my space to begin. I thought this time I would do inchies! Actually, they are 1 1/4", but we won't quibble. LOL! I knew that by making inchies I would be forced to use some of my many, many dollar stamps. Don't we all have a ton of these? I can't resist them. I didn't check what series these came from, but I'm sure you have them too, right?? It's not just me, right? Some day I will show you where I keep them. Ok, so now I knew what I wanted to do, now I needed to pick the paper. I chose Crate paper. More specifically- Dragonfly from the Baby Bee collection. I love it. But I wanted to make it more mine and match the cardstock I wanted to use--SU! Baja Breeze. So, out came the cuttlebug and my sizzix texture plates. After embossing the background I sponged it with SU! Baja Breeze classic ink. Love how it turned out, and if you see by the picture, what a difference! For the inchies, I stamped in Saddle Brown Stazon and used my prismacolor pencils to color. I hooked them together like a clothesline using embroidery floss. I have tons of that around here from my cross stitch days. I should pull something out to work on again. Maybe. The white twill ribbon was sponged with SU! Baja Breeze and stamped using Saddle Brown Stazon with a sentiment from SU! Bundled in Love. All in all, I really like this card and let me know if you do too!
