Just popping in with a couple of posts tonight. I hope you all are having a lovely week so far.
Today I took some time to craft with a very special friend and we caught up on a couple of episodes of The Voice. I don't about you but I love me some Adam Levine!! ;) He is most definitely on my "Freebie List". You remember that episode from Friends right? That list of celebrities where if you weren't attached...well you know...that's a "sweet, sweet baby!" in a whole other sense!
I thought I would use the colours from this week's Dynamic Duos challenge today as my inspiration.
Two very beautiful colours which to me screamed that a baby card was in order.
I also wanted to use the sketch from Unscripted Sketches. As I've said before, I love sketches - they inspire me so much and this blog is awesome!
I decided to flip the sketch on it's side and have the "title" or sentiment on the bottom of the card. I also decided that I would make the blocks all the same size as it would work much better for the effect of the stamps that I wanted to use. You will understand in just a few moments...can you wait for it??? ;)
Without any further teasing, here is today's card:
I love those little hands and feet that look like imprints! And the Sahara Sand is a great colour to soften up the look of printing a babies hands and bitty feet. For the sentiment, I cut out the label using the Bitty Banners Framelits in Blushing Bride. I then stamped the "Sweet Baby" sentiment using Soft Suede and fussy cut around the stamped image itself. I then popped the sentiment up on dimensionals. It makes a great layered effect.
