Happy for you, dear

0904-happy-for-you

Stampin’ Up!’s Forest Friends set from the Occasions Mini Catalog is so perfect for baby cards.  Here is my “congrats” card from April’s stamp camps.

Cameo Coral is a color I love — on paper.  My skin coloring favors “winter” colors (remember season color analysis?), so I can’t wear yellows and oranges.  Except to bed.  That’s when I express my inner autumn.  I’m telling you this so when we have a slumber party stamp camp, you won’t be shocked.

The blossoms on the trees here were a last-minute change.  Last minute = after the card was all finished.  Very risky.  I inked up the “blood spatter” stamp from Itty Bitty Backgrounds and over-stamped the trees, then added white blossoms with the gel pen.  It was the balance the card needed.

Stamps:  Forest Friends, Nursery Necessities, Itty Bitty Backgrounds

Ink:  Basic Brown, Certainly Celery, Cameo Coral, Old Olive, Stampin’ Write Markers (Certainly Celery, Old Olive)

Paper:  Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Vellum card stock, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
