Welcome Little One

Good afternoon!

Oh my goodness…can we say cuteness overload!!!

I am sharing my guest design project for Digi Doodle Studios featuring this super ADORABLE giraffe.  This little sweetheart is from the ‘Little Ones Pairables‘ digital stamp set.  What a darling stamp set for all the “littles” in this world.

The techniques used to color this sweetie are from Kit & Clowder online classes – Jungle Jam ~ September 2018.  Alyce is an amazing teacher!!

I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following Copic Markers.

The dies for the shaker part and the leaves are all from La-La Land Crafts.  The remaining dies used are from My Favorite Things, Gummiapan, and Memory Box.

The shaker front is made from tulle purchased at a local craft store.  I really like the softness from using tulle versus using acetate…easier to photograph and no fingerprints…lol.

I don’t make a lot of baby cards, but this one is so adorable I may have a really hard time parting with it!

I used tulle to create my shaker with to give my card a little more texture and less glare.

I fussy cut out the image by hand, popping her up on the side of the frame with double sided foam tape.  A couple adhesive back rhinestones were all that was needed to finish the card.

Tidings of Joy

Hello everyone!

Can we say ADORABLE??…it’s new release time again at Whimsy Stamps.  My inspiration today came from the super adorable Ellie’s Bauble rubber stamp.  I completely fell in love with this little sweetie!!

Tidings of Joy

As always, I stamped this little sweetie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following copic markers.

~Copics~
Grays:  W3/2/1/0/00/BV23
Pinks:  RV00/000/0000
Purples:  BV04/02/01/000/0000/RV000

Tidings of Joy1

I created a shaker element with the Pierced and Stitched Circle Die Set and lots of clear sparkly shaker bits from my stash.  I fussy cut out Ellie and attached her to the front of the completed element.  I die cut two leaf sets from the Peony Flower Die.  The one on the left side of the card was cut apart (right leaf only).  The set of two leaves was attached to the main card and the right leaf was attached on top of the shaker element before attaching the thread and flowers.

I heat embossed the Lots of Dots Background stamp to the white border at the bottom with white embossing powder.  It is hard to see in photographs, but it is really pretty in person.  I also added white flower soft to the fuzzy parts of her hat, and sparkly bling to the centers of the snowflakes.

The sentiment is from the Holiday Mini Sentiments clear stamp set.

Tidings of Joy2

I added the following flowers from I Am Roses:
R2-518 – Mini Variegated White – Soft Pink Paper Flowers
T1-2 – Soft Pink Mini Artificial Paper Crafts Rosebuds
