Bringing Baby

Petite Pairs Stamp Set offers you a choice of wording for
the front and inside of your card.

Stampin' Up! offers a variety of A' la Carte stamps, such as Bringing Baby,  making it easy for you to work well within your budget.  Check them out on pages 18-20 of the Idea Book and Catalog.

For my baby boy card, I started with Bashful Blue cardstock, and added a layer of Soft Suede that was sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  I stamped my image with Soft Suede cardstock and using my Blender Pen added additional color.  An addition of some Scallop Edge Borders in Bashful Blue were placed under this Whisper White layer and then placed on the card.  I used coordinating sentiments for the front and inside of the card.

My Stamping Tip:  When I want to add a bit of color to a large image, I like to use my Blender Pens.  I just touch the tip of the pen into the ink pad color of my choice, and then I can add as much color or shading as I want.  To clean the tip of your pen, just rub it back and forth across a piece of scrap paper until it runs clear.  The tip might look discolored, but if it is running clear on your scrap paper you can reuse it again for your next color.
