I'm finally getting ahead of the game with baby thank yous. I only have a few outstanding -- it's down to the single digits and it feels good to be almost caught up.
I'm planning to make 30 of these simple cards for upcoming baby showers. I don't know when they'll be, but I want to be ready this time so all I have to do is write the notes out instead of having the extra step of making the cards as well.
I started with some blue Arturo note cards that I ordered from Ellen's store. They are just like the Fabriano cards, but in color!
These baby images are really old! I bought them at Michaels when I first started stamping because I thought they were cute. That was at least 5 years ago and this is the first time they've seen ink. Shocking, I know! Anyway, they are made by Rubber Stampede but are probably retired at this point. The sentiment is from A Muse Art Stamps. I love their clean fonts.
I stamped all the images with Palette Noir black ink and then watercolored with an aquapainter and my watercolor wonder crayons. Then when everything was dry, I added a little glitz with my new clear Copic Spica Glitter pen, also from Ellen's store.
