welcome baby boy ...

stamps: baby with bunny from lili of the valley, a word for you from stampin up!
inks: memento ink pad (tuxedo black), tim holtz ink pad (brushed corduroy), promarkers
crdstock: bear necessities papers from lili of the valley ( nitwit collect), craftworkcards digi cardstock, 5x5" card blank

I mat and layered two of the papers and glued them on to my card blank. I stamped my baby boy image onto digi card stock and added a sentiment just below. I only coloured the flesh with promarkers, paper piecing the clothes and bunny  to complete the image. I matted this layer on to a piece of card I had inked brown, to coordinate with the accent in the paper. I cut some little banners for added interest (and to follow the sketch) and glued them to the back of the topper before adding to the card. if you swap the papers, this design could easily work for a girl, or be kept neutral for a surprise arrival !!



  1. This card really has the Awwww factor Stacey! The LOTV image is super-cute, and your paper-piecing is fabulous.
