Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Babies

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team Challenge project with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Babies',  so for my project decided to use one of the gorgeous baby stamps from LOTV. I've always loved their rubber stamps but found the detail quite small and difficult to colour (I have rubbish eye sight) but now they've converted a lot to digital I adore them and have bought quite a few. So watch this space as you'll probably see more in the future.

I coloured this cute guy in with my Copic pens which have been gathering dust in the corner of my craft room. I tried to keep my card CAS, both in layout and in colouring to allow me to show of this fab little boy and his toy.

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize!   


Here's What I Did
I used a 5" x 5" white scalloped card and matted it with green card.  After cutting a piece of patterned paper to size I die cut it with a pin hole effect die, this was then add it to the card front. The boy image was printed directly onto colouring card, coloured with Copic pens and die cut into a circle. An additional circle was cut from blue card using a scalloped die, and the boy image was glued on top.

The circle topper was then added to the card front using foam pads. To complete the card glitter was added to the stars, and 3 green pearls were adhered to the front.
