For Baby!

Two weeks have gone by since my last DRS Designs Blog Post & I'm still playing with the Dustin Pike, Jenny Giraffe image & the "Cute as a Button" sentiment. I couldn't help but show you another baby card I made using these 2 stamps.

I used the latest Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge (SC227) for the layout. The giraffe image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol. I inked the edges with pink ink and matted it as shown using the Fiskars Treading Water Border Punch to fit the scalloped border on the sketch.

The horizontal panel in the background was created using the Open Plaid Background stamp and light pink ink. No need to buy expensive designer paper when you have this stamp on hand--it's reusable & you can create the plaid in any color you want! I love how it looks on this baby card!

I stamped the "Cute as a Button!" sentiment in a darker shade of pink & cut it out using my SU! Word Window Punch. I layered a paper flower, and a yellow button behind it for some added dimension.

Stamps: DRS Designs- Jenny Giraffe (G859) , Cute as a Button Sentiment (B753), Open Plaid Background (P631)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, SU! Pretty in Pink, and Pixie Pink
Paper: Smooth white cardstock by Office Depot, Colored Cardstock by American Crafts
Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, Fiskars Treading Water Border Punch, Prima Flowers, Fancy Findings Buttons, SU! Word Window Punch
Finished Card Size: 4.25" x 5.75"

Here are the other 2 baby cards I've made using the same 2 stamps in case you missed them.

If you need to make a baby card soon, I hope I've inspired you to order the Jenny Giraffe and the "Cute as a Button!" sentiment from DRS Designs. As you can see there is so much you can do with these 2 stamps, whether you need one for a baby girl, a baby boy, or for when the baby's gender is unknown, these 2 stamps have you covered!
