Because baby Ian is a little "Leo", I wanted to put a little lion into my design. I also wanted to use the Something for Baby stamp set. So I checked out some other challenges to see if anything fit the bill. The striking colours from the Colour Me...! challenge were absolutely perfect:
So, armed with a theme, colours to use and a design, I proceeded to make baby Ian's card. My base cardstock is Naturals White followed by a layer of Tangelo Twist which I had embossed using my Decorative Dots embossing folder. The next layer was a smaller rectangle of Whisper White embossed with my Alphabet Press embossing folder. Then I cut out a piece of Tempting Turquoise into a frame of a banner using the largest and second largest of my Banner framelits.
For the little "onesie", I first used Tangelo Twise ink to stamp just the lion's head from the Zoo Babies stamp set, once on Whisper White and another time on a piece of Post-It note. I cut out the head stamped on the Post-It note as my "mask" and stuck it to my Whisper White over the stamped lion's head using my Two-Way glue. Then I stamped the "onesie" from the Something for Baby stamp set, centred over the lion's head. After I had removed the mask, I went over any still-white spots with my Tempting Turquoise marker and then free-handed a pattern over the "onesie" with the marker as well.
The additional little details were stamped using the Teeny Tiny Wishes, Truly Grateful and Baby, We've Grown stamp sets using either Tangelo Twist ink or Tempting Turquoise ink.
