CFC 111 – Welcome Baby

August 1, 2013

It’s another week with CAS-ual Friday Challenge with buttons!!  I love buttons.  I hoard them – which is why you rarely see buttons on my cards!


This was a super fun card to make!  I had fun combining all sorts of stamps from different manufacturers – see if you can identify them all!

Welcome Baby

The card came together easily when I got out all the stamps I wanted to use. But I had this this *aha!* moment when I stamped the ribbon. Because it was a solid stamp, I felt that it was missing something. So I partially stamped one of the petals from Calico as  “ribbon folds” in a darker pink.

Finished the card with a small heart button that I found in my stash and some blending around the edges using Jenni Bowlin’s Bubble Gum ink.

    This card is just so pretty! There are so many things to love. But, as someone who is always combining materials and tools from various companies, I especially loved the combining of such different stamps.

    Thanks so much for the kind words you left on Scrapping with Purpose. I really appreciated them!
