Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Baby Witty-Cisms
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend, ours was overcast & rainy, but no complaints here – love me some rain 🙂 Today I have a sweet baby card to share with you using one of the quirky stamp sets in the 2020 Mini Catalogue, Witty-Cisms – if you like “punny” stamp sets you’ll definitely want to add this one to your stash.
I’ll be needing a baby card very soon so have used the sweet little pram image for today’s project. The sentiments and images are on one stamp so I needed a lot of masking to stamp the parts individually. If you’re braver than me, you could do some “stamp surgery” and cut them apart and if I find that I am getting a lot of use from this set I’ll probably end up doing that, it will make it much more versatile 🙂
The layout for my card is very simple, so I used lots of die cutting to add interest & texture, you could use simple layers and punches instead, but I ♥♥♥ my dies and use them whenever I can 🙂
I stamped and coloured the pram and hearts with Stampin’ Blends Markers and then fussy cut them out using my Paper Snips, I stamped the images again – to put back the sketchy outlines and die cut this out with a circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies and layered this to a scalloped circle of Balmy Blue.
The background uses more die cutting (using dies from my stash) and I ran one of the layers through the Pinewood Planks embossing folder which I really think steps up this simple card a lot.
The sentiment was stamped and die cut as well and I popped this up and my other images with dimensionals to add some extra interest.
To finish off the inside I added the same layers as the front and stamped & coloured the pram one more time in the corner. This stamp set doesn’t include inside sentiments, but you could add one from another stamp set if you like. I like have a big space to write a special message, especially on such a momentous occasion, so was happy to leave it blank 🙂
I don’t often make baby cards and was so pleased with how this one turned out. I hope my husband likes it just as much and I don’t need to make one a bit more “fancy” 😉
