My boss’s daughter-in-law just gave birth to my boss’s first grandchild! Little Benjamin was born on October 27th, weighed 9 lbs 7 oz and was 21 3/4″ long. What a joyous occasion for my boss’s family! This was definitely a card-worthy event. Not having to make many baby cards since I’m in college and none of my friends are even close to having children yet, I pulled out my only stamp set I own with a baby-themed sentiment- Wonderfully Whimsical from Papertrey Ink. With Sophie’s Sentiments from Lawn Fawn and The Sky is the Limit cloud stamp from Studio Calico, here’s what I came up with:
I used Copics to color in the houses and then cut them out. I adhered them to the back of the piece of Simply Chartreuse cardstock hills and then adhered it to the vintage cream paper that I had stamped and masked off the clouds on before applying Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress ink. I love how this card turned out!
Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse, Kraft, and Vintage Cream), Stamps- Papertrey Ink (Wonderfully Whimsical), Studio Calico (Sky is the Limit Set from May 2010 add-on) and Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments), Ink- Tsukineko (Memento Black) and Ranger (Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Broken China), Markers- Copic.
Alright, off to go prep for the first night of Halloween festivities. Tonight, Matt and I are going out to some costume parties dressed as football players- he’s going to be a Viking, and I’m going to be a Packer. The layout for tonight is going to be a-dor-able :)
Much love! What are you or your kids planning on being for halloween? I need ideas for tomorrow night still. Hehe.
