Baby Season

It definitely seems like there's as much of a 'baby season' as there is a 'wedding season'... I can't be the only who feels that way! My brother-in-law is expecting a little baby boy in the fall! These oldie but goodie Lawn Fawn stamps "Plus One" are perfect for babies on the way :)

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is 'Distress'. I created the evening sky look by blending Distress Ink in "Chipped Sapphire", "Tumbled Glass", and "Peacock Feathers". I very lightly misted it with water to get more texture in the sky. I also lightly distressed the teal background paper to be darker.

TIP: To keep the stork one layer, I created a stamped mask with a post it note, fussy cut it, and placed it over the stamped stork in the sky. This way I could blend the inks around the page without getting any unwanted color on my stork. I finished it off with some Crystal Stickles, the die cut "Say Cheese" by Lawn Fawn, and the perfect pattern paper from Lawn Fawn's "Hello Sunshine" collection.

One last card for today! Unity Stamps have a new Stamp of the Week called "Need a Squeeze". I am loving citrus colors this season so I had to join in the fun. The colors in this card just happen to be my wedding colors, and I didn't even plan it!

The stamp was colored with Copic markers, die cut, and added on the card with some Icicle Stickles. Pattern paper is from Basic Grey "Fresh Cut" pad and the sequins are from Lawn Fawn "Hello Sunshine" collection.

Copic Color Combos:
Orange Slice: Y11, Y15, Y35 and Y38, YR16
Grapefruit Slice: Y11, Y15, Y35 and R01, R11, R22
Lime Slice: Y02, YG05 and YG07, G14

Have a lovely and safe Memorial Day weekend!
