Baby Love

Hello my friends and happy Monday to you! Today I wanted to share a sweet baby card I created (I couldn't decide which photos I liked best so I posted 3 for you today)...The cream circle was stamped with a background stamp, from Background Basics: Retro, in aqua. The sentiment was stamped using two different sentiments from Mixed Messages, it just so happened that they were in the same font.

The stars were punched from melon berry (stamped with stripes from BB: Retro in cream) and aqua cardstock. Then layered with a circle and buttons.

The ribbon was done using the same technique used on this card. Excepted before adhering the ribbon I ran a straight stitch down one side with thread, bunched it together tightly then adhered and stapled. Creating this much ruffle did take a lot of ribbon, but I really like the way it turned out.

Well that's it from me today, hope you have a wonderful start to your week and a blessed day. Thanks for stopping in today!

  9. I'm loving the ruffle work!! I also like seeing the retro background in a different colour than versamark...very striking!! Is your aquamist the new pigment ink one? I have the new one but haven't used it yet...I guess they redid it for better coverage.
