Hearts and flowers and Something for Baby from Stampin' Up

I had so much fun making today's card! It's an unashamedly pretty and feminine baby card using sponging techniques and using some of my favourite Stampin' Up stamp sets. Come and see:

The background was made by holding a torn piece of scrap paper over the sky area and sponging Pistachio Pudding ink over the ground, and then holding the paper over the ground and using a mask to sponge in a cloudy sky with Soft Sky ink. TIP: Punch out different size circles and glue them together to make a cloud mask that you can use over and over again.

The floral branch from Hopeful Thoughts makes the prettiest frame for the pram and using markers directly on the rubber enables you to get a pretty multi-coloured image.

Once the frame was stamped I used a stamp-a-majig to position the pram. Stampin' Up has designed framelits to cut out the images from Something for Baby and you could cut the pram out and pop it up on the background if you wanted to. Better still, if you buy the stamp set and framelits together you get a cheeky 15% discount! Bargain!

I'll be linking this card up with ATCAS where the cue word is Sky.

My poor youngest son hit his front teeth while on a school trip at the weekend and broke one of the front ones, already weakened from an old injury, in half. Yesterday, I took him to our lovely dentist in Wendover to be put back together. While we were there, we walked past this sign.

I was immediately curious but my daughter, who had come along to keep us company, had already spotted that it was an aviation art gallery which is not her thing at all. "Come on," she said guiding me firmly past. "Some things were meant to be kept secret!"

See you tomorrow.


  1. GREAT card Vicky.

    Sorry to hear about your poor Son. Hope he's all fixed up now.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  2. The card is another adorable one! If I'd have been with you, I'd have gone into the gallery, because I love all things military and flight related :)
