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.
