Here’s another card I promised to show you during last weekend’s blog hop, and was also made with my new favorite stamp set – Eggstra Spectacular. The hardest part about making this one was getting the Staz-On ink only on the lamb image and not the words. Of course you could always cut the stamp to separate the words from the image, but I can never bring myself to take a scissors or knife to any of my stamps! Aaaargh! It’s kind of like seeing a child take a scissors to her long hair and cutting off a chunk. In the end, you know it’ll be ok, but I’d just as soon avoid it all together.
So, how did I solve the problem you wonder. Easy peasy – I used a sticky note to mask the words then inked. Pull off the sticky note and you can then stamp the only the image.
Here, I stamped onto Whisper White, then colored the face and part of the tummy with Pink Pirouette marker. The eggs and basket were marker colored as well with Pear Pizzazz and Perfect Plum. It was punched with the 1-1/4 circle punch, then adhered to Pink Pirouette cardstock and punched with the 1-3/8 circle punch. The next layer is Pear Pizzazz and was punched with a (gasp) non SU 1-1/2″ punch.
The base is Pink Pirouette, with a Whisper White top layer that was embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder (only available as a FREE Sale-a-Bration award) I used the 1-3/4″ circle punch in the white layer to create a frame for my stamped image. Finally, a bit of Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon for the bow and a few Pear Pizazz candy dots rounded off the embellishments.
What do you think – is it worthy of this little cutie?
This is my Granddaughter, Karly. She’ll be 4 months old in a couple of weeks. What a sweetheart she is – always smiling! This photo just melts my heart and makes me want to kiss her little face. (She’s darned lucky I don’t wear lipstick – just sayin’…)
All right, kids. My laundry awaits. Have a wonderful Tuesday – stamp something fun this week!
