Hello strangers! I know, I know, it’s been too long! Don’t you hate when that thing called ‘life’ and ‘responsibility’ get in the way??
So after nearly two weeks *gasp* of not stamping, I made the time tonight to start an order of baby cards that I received. My customer asked for 6 cards in all, some babies have already arrived, one boy and one girl, 3 others will arrive shortly, and she asked for a spare card since she has a gut feeling she’ll be needing one soon.
Of course, since I haven’t stamped in a while, I wasn’t up to date on my supplies…meaning I’m running out of Tombo adhesive tape. I had just enough to finish 2 cards, so the rest will have to wait until I can go out tomorrow.
I used the layout from Taylor’s weekend sketch (last weeks) and I finally inked up a My Favorite Things stamp set that I’ve had sitting in the wrapper for about 2 months now.
I picked the stork stamp and set to work on the baby boy and baby girl cards. I immediately pulled out the Fun Flock, and it worked perfectly!
Thank goodness for glue pens, that’s all I have to say!
Here’s a close up of the boy stork. I used SU Salebration paper, it’s the perfect ‘boy’ colour combo. The card base is Sahara Sand, and the dark blue paper is one I found in my stash. I used some Bashful Blue ribbon and painted the end of a safety pin with blue acrylic paint to match. Cute, eh?
And here’s the baby girl card. I used “My Little Bicycle” paper for this one, and some Bazzil Raspberry paper. Again the card base is Sahara Sand, and I couldn’t find a pink ribbon I liked, so I went with white and tied a small bow.
I’m really happy the Fun Flock worked just as I wanted it too, I was a little worried the image was too small.
Well, since I’m out of adhesive, that’s it for me!
Ciao for now,
P.S. excuse the alignment of this post, apparently I've also forgotten how to use Live Writer :S
