New Baby

Hi guys

This afternoon I visited Day 1 of my recently purchased class at Online Card Classes.  I've heard really good things about these classes so wanted to have a go.  I chose the Clean & Simple Card Making class, an independent class which I can work through in my own time.  I do hope to participate in an interactive class at some point though :)

I made this card based on one of the clean and simple sketches included in the class...

The one thing I have literally none of in my stash is large background stamps.  So, I masked the centre of this square card base with a post-it note and then used a background builder stamp to create the argyle print all over the card base.  I did struggle to line it up in a few places and where the stamp met the mask there were a few areas that didn't stamp too well so I did my best to re-stamp without messing it up!  Next I took a scrap of white cardstock and inked it up straight from my ink pad so I had a matching colour to punch out the teddy bears.  I stamped the sentiment, adhered the teddy bears on 3D foam and added a couple of pale blue gems to finish.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Background Builders III, A Little Sentimental
  • Ink: Versa Color - Baby Blue and Royal Blue
  • Punch: Woodware - Teddy Bear
  • Gems from stash

    Well done using the background block... I think they are all quite tough to line up
    But you've done great.
