Welcome Sweet Baby

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing two sweet baby cards I made with the darling new set Sweet Little Lamb from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. For both cards, I used the smaller images in the set and a technique called popping pastels to create the colored panels. If you are unfamiliar with popping pastels, all you need to do is stamp images with versamark ink onto white cardstock then rub chalk pastels over the top using cotton balls (rub the cotton ball onto the chalk then on the cardstock). The images you stamped will magically pop darker than the rest of the cardstock. I love this oldie, but goodie technique!

For my first card, I used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday 532 sketch.  I stamped the lamb on canson xl mixed media paper with versafine clair nocturne ink, colored with Arteza Real Brush Pens (ginger, rouge pink, ash black, smoke gray, wisteria purple) and fussy cut out. I stamped the words using the same ink onto white cardstock, cut with a circle die and stamped the small hearts with purple ink. I embossed the white panel with a dot embossing folder. Then, I attached the purple panel to the white panel, positioned ribbon and attached to the back then adhered the panel to the purple card base. Next, I positioned and popped up the sentiment and lamb with foam tape. As the final step, I tied a small piece of of ribbon towards the top of the card.

For my second card, I used the same paper and ink. I colored the image with Aretza Real Brush Pens (ginger, rouge pink, ash black, smoke gray) and cut with a circle die. I stamped the words, then adhered the heart panel, gray and pink pieces to the gray cardstock base. Finally, I popped up the lamb with foam tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
