Welcome Little One

A card for a friend's daughter who is having a baby soon. I don't know if its a boy or girl so just went rainbow and it will be fine. Love this stamp from Stampin Bella, I don't think I have any other rubber stamps of pregnant woman. I do have digital ones and they are lovely but I'm trying at the moments to make sure I use my stamps so stamped onto cardstock for Copics.

Lots of colouring and bits of blending. Finished the colouring off with my glitter gel pens and used the colours to match what was being coloured. You can see the shimmer here.

I did two layers with the rounded corners stitched rectangular die from Gina Maria . I tell you what you need to check out her dies cause I have been using quite a few of them and they are brilliant, they cut perfectly every time and the fact that you can get a set of stitched shapes - oval, rectangle, circle etc for $10 a set is a pure bargain. I am amazed sometimes at the price that is bunged onto dies. It is truly worth shopping around, I know you cant when you want a die to match a stamp but for things like this and quite a bit more the price is a bargain. (I didn't get paid to say this and I get no commission from this blurb, its just my opinion on a product I use)..

So my two layers were then attached to the card and a beautiful 'welcome' sentiment die from Papersmooches. Its so cute. Finished off with a mix of coloured dots.


Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
