There are some sets that you just need to have for emergencies. That is how I feel about this new stamp set. We used to sell a stamp set with baby prints, but they retired it. I guess they figured out I needed it back. Here is the set from the current Occasions Mini.
There is just something sweet about the little prints. I've had several babies born in my life in the last 2 months so I had to get on the ball. Here's what I came up with. One for a boy and one for a girl.
Stamp Set: Baby Prints (Occassions mini), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Everyday Enchantment (SAB)
Ink: Pool Party or Calypso Coral
Tools: Big Shot, Stripes Embossing Folder, scallop border punch, corner rounder, 1/6" hole punch, word window, modern label punch
Accessories: Designer In color brads, lucky limeade or pool party ruffled ribbon, dimensionals
One other thing I wanted to share with you about this card. There are some of you out there asking how people come up with these ideas. I knew I needed to make a baby card, but I didn't know where to start. Here's how I did it. Have you ever used a template. If you've looked at my blog, I have a button at the bottom for Mojo Monday. When I had more time, I used to play along. You should try if you have the time. I went to their site, and clicked on 2011 Sketches. There is a 2010 section too. Lots to choose from. I knew which stamp set I wanted to use and what colors I wanted to use. I chose this layout to work from.
It's just meant to get your creative juices flowing. I saw this and did what I could. It's not the best card I've produced, but I save a lot of fingernails by using suggested templates already out there. Don't reinvent the wheel if you don't have to :)
That is my lesson for the day. Maybe you could play along next monday. Good Luck!
