A little pink bundle of love

Hope you're having a restful and relaxing weekend. I've been enjoying a bit of family time with my Mum and Dad. Dad's recovering after a small op so it's been good to take time out with them and enjoy their company.

It was also nice to be able to do a small favour for my Mum. She needed a a baby card recently and so I whipped up this little creation. It's pretty quick to make but still has the cute factor I was going for.

Stamp set: Bundle of Love
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Rose Red
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Black Stazon
DSP: Subtles Patterns Stack
Punch: Corner Rounder
1cm Taffeta Ribbon: Pretty in Pink

The card blank is an A6 landscape of Pretty in Pink. The background mat was created by bunching together a group of the dinky clear mount stamps from the set onto a single block and repeat stamping with Pretty in Pink ink onto Whisper White card - background paper, double quick time.

This was wrapped with Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon and adhered to the card front. The pram was stamped in Black Stazon onto Whisper White card and again onto DSP and then the baby's head and the bootees were stamped over the top of just the Whisper White version (no real need for the Stamp-a-ma-jig when using clear mount). The pram was cut out of the DSP and paper pieced over the Whisper White version. Using Pretty in Pink and Rose Red markers the bootees and the pram base were coloured in. The corners of the image were punched with the Corner Rounder and it was matted onto Rose Red card, also Corner Rounded. This was popped up on dimensionals on the card front. To finish a bow of Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon was attached with a glue dot.

As well as 5 other dinky, cute images not used here, this fab stamp set also comes with a verse, invitation and range of sentiments. I selected the verse and a sentiment for the inside of the card and just finished again with another baby image in the bottom corner.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
