Welcome to Day 2 of the Best Days Blog Hop!
I'm so excited to be hopping along with Simon Says Stamp today as we celebrate the latest release, Best Days! This release is full of amazing new stamps, dies, stencils, and more! I compiled lots and lots of new (seven new products!!!!) to create this trio of baby cards! Each card features the same basic design, I just switched up the focal point images and/or greetings. Imagine switching out the baby themed sentiments and images for birthday or other occasions as well! I love versatile designs!
The Reverse Polka Background was used to create custom patterned paper backgrounds with Cotton Candy, Sea Glass, and Fog inks.
The Picture Book Sky Background was die cut from Fog Cardstock, Sea Glass Cardstock, and Cotton Candy inked cardstock and layered on the corresponding polka dot background. The die was also die cut from vellum and smooth white cardstock. The vellum clouds were inlaid in the sky and the white clouds were adhered offset with foam adhesive squares as shown.
On the first card, the Picture Book Lamb was die cut from smooth white cardstock, Cotton Candy cardstock, Smoke cardstock, and black cardstock, and adhered to the sky scene as shown.
The Oh Baby Words Die was die cut from Cotton Candy cardstock, and the shadow die cut from smooth white cardstock. The die cut greetings were used to frame up the scene. An additional sentiment from the Oh Baby Stamp Set was stamped on Slate cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being trimmed into a thin strip and adhered to the design as shown.
My next card is very similar in design with the exception of switching out the images and using the Sweet Elephants Dies and using the Welcome Little One Dies for the greeting. The little hearts were leftovers from a past project die cut with my favorite Mini Hearts Die.
My final card share today features images from the Oh Baby Stamp Set stamped and colored with Copics, die cut with the coordinating dies and adhered over the sky background to create the scene. I love that you can create similar cards whether you use stamps or dies!
