Baby Shoe Challenge

071708-color

Well, I should be cleaning my house right now and what am I doing but stampin'! I checked Kristina's challenge today -- isn't it the cutest? So I just could not resist doing it since I had just gotten the Shoe Boutique set from Cornish Heritage Farms and the baby shoe is the first one I inked up! So my take on the challenge is pretty literal:

I am thinking I will be one of many who uses this image! Anyway, the details are pretty simple: images are stamped in Going Gray and watercolored very carefully as the GG is not waterproof. Mounted on Nestability scallops & circles, popped up on dimensionals. I am very excited about the scallop punch that I just got from my SU order--it is very easy to use and looks great! The little stitched border at the top is even more exciting - it is from the Inque Boutique stamp set Stitch Fun. If you haven't seen these, check out their stuff at The Purple Turtle. They combine the best of rubber stamps with the positioning capability of clear stamps. JUST AWESOME, I want to play all day with them! Ribbon is just some double-sided satin from ACM. Thanks for looking, I'm off to clean!

  • Stamps: Shoe Boutique, CHF; Stitch Fun, Inque Boutique
  • Paper: Soft Sky, Very Vanilla, Shimmery White
  • Ink: Going Gray, Pure Pumpkin, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Soft Sky
  • Acc: Vanilla WC Crayon, Aquapainter, Nesties, Scallop Punch, Dimensionals, Ribbon

  2. I had to make a baby card a month ago and I was totally stumped! I've never made one! I ended up using three seasons out of the little tree stamp, and I said ISN'T IT AMAZING WHAT CAN HAPPEN IN NINE MONTHS. And I put it on green and green plaid. I feel so stupid now.
