Sweet Pea baby card

Howdy stampers! Here's my take on Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch! Look at all those rows!! Hehe! I was a little scared to try my hand at this one, but I warmed up to it and I hope you like how my card turned out!!! ;)

My colors were inspired by The Color Throwdown and another beautiful color combination of: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and old Olive!!! I thought these would be perfect for a baby card and to use my new Fox & Friends Clear Mount stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog!!! The Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog posted a challenge of New Beginnings so I entered my new baby card in that challenge as well!!!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:

  • The Fox & Friends Stamp set comes in a set of 7, featuring some super cute little critters! I chose the giraffe and stamped him in Chocolate Chip Ink, then colored in the polka dots with Pretty Ink Pink ink using my blender pen! This set is on page 31 of the Occasions Mini catalog!
  • My Sweet Pea sentiment also comes from a stamp set in the Occasions Mini Catalog! The set is called Little Angel and features 4 super sweet sentiments perfect for baby cards, announcements, and scrapbook pages! My set is in the Clear Mount format and was only $9.95!!! What an awesome deal!
  • The rows of DSP were cut to 3-3/4" x 1" and matted on Chocolate Chip card stock. I inked the edges of all the papers in Chocolate Chip ink for a distressed look! These papers were also from the Occasions Mini Catalog! It's the Sweet Pea DSP STACK!! Comes with {48} sheets total: 2 each of 24 double-sided designs. 12" x 12"
  • My Old Olive strip of card stock down the center of my card was cut to 1-1/4" x 5-1/4" and ran through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder on page 35 of the Occasions Mini Catalog! Probably my favorite textured folder SU offers - love the dots plus the impression is deep and the folder can cover an entire card front!!!
