getting’ my groove on

Sometimes after a prolonged absence from the stamping room, you just have to start with Clean and Simple (CAS)  Such is the case with this sweet baby card.  I’m getting them all done, yes, I am.  So many babies, so little time.  This was another rummage sale stamp that has gotten tons of use over the past five years.  So simple because it holds it’s own w/o any embellies or extras.  Stamp it blue, purple, pink,  (yellow doesn’t work so well) it’s equally cute for a boy card.  I have dressed it up in the past with layers and ribbons and embellishments but it doesn’t HAVE to be that detailed and still gets the message across.  I’m happy for you and your new little one.    I used a large retired SU lace stamp and taped a large oval die cut into the middle of the card stock before stamping the lace.  Then remove the die cut and there is a beautiful white spot to stamp the shoes.  Voila` simple as can be.

  5. I love this card. The soft color of the background and the soft edge from the oval mask blend together so nicely to the bright pink shoes that pop. Wonderful job!
