Oh, baby (simon says stamp)

Hi everyone! Today I did a bit of playing around with Oh, Baby, one of Simon Says Stamp‘s latest releases. I wanted to use the cute stork and sack…and I wanted to use the line with the tiny clothes…so I made two cards.  :)

Simon Says Stamp "Oh, Baby"

I first created a sky by using a Cloud Border die-cut, moving the strip down and tipping left then right as I sponged. I used a slightly darker blue ink at the top and a lighter one at the bottom.

The cute tiny stars are one of the new toppings from Queen & Company‘s latest (and greatest, IMO) kits, Love Jar.  (The kit also includes tiny wood hearts and circles among other toppings.) To create a bit of dimension, I placed clear foam squares beneath the stork’s wings and the bottom of the sack with the other areas glued down to the clouds.  (That stork…)

On my second card, I created another sky background then stamped the line. The tiny clothes were stamped on white card stock with the shirt and bib stamped again onto Queen & Company’s Flirty Florals patterned paper (which is also included in the Love Jar kit).

I die-cut all the tiny clothes using coordinating Oh, Baby wafer dies, then also die-cut the Oh, Baby Words sentiment. Congratulations was stamped in white ink then white embossed.

Thanks so much for visiting today! (I hope it’s warm where you are. It certainly is NOT here!!)

I stamped the various bunnies across the panel then die-cut and popped up the larger bunny on clear foam squares. The bit of pink string was colored with a Copic marker.
