Hi! It’s Kathryn here!
It's been a while since I joined in with the Social Stamping group, but I couldn't resist this month’s theme, as we recently got the exciting news that we are going to be grandparents for the first time early next year!
Gorgeous Kelly is our blog host and you may have arrived here from her blog where she has the full list of participants, or you may be starting here. Either way, welcome! To get back to Kelly’s blog and see the rest of the Baby creations click here.
I think that I am pretty bad at coming up with ideas for masculine cards, but I don’t seem to have troubles with that when we are talking about babies. Stampin’ Up! has such gorgeous pastel colours for traditional or modern baby colour schemes.
I don’t have many baby sets, but I recently got Moving Along, because I know I will use it next year!
This is a two-step stamping set - there are outline stamps and blocks of colour for filling the images. And lots of cute other stamps to create cards with individual images or make full scenes. I think this stamp set would make awesome diorama cards, but today I have just gone for a standard fold card but with lots of layers.
I love how the block stamps fill in the colour on the outline images so nicely. For the image colours I've used Seaside Spray, Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake, and the same for the scallop layers under each of those stitched squares.
For the larger layer underneath I have used Just Jade for the scalloped layer. Notice the gorgeous embossing on the larger white layer? That's the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder which is in the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue.
I'd love you to leave me a comment and let me know what you think, and if you would like to see a list of all the products used, they are right at the bottom of this post.
