Card of the Week (3/12/07)

It's Monday, and you know what time it is...Card of the Week day!!! (Just kidding about the sing-songiness...LOL...but it really is:)) This is another card that I made with the new Spring Mini set, Bundle of Joy. I tried to keep it fairly simple, but with some added detail. I'm happy with how it turned out. Let me know what you think!

Here we go...
Paper - Lovely Lilac (LL) - card; Cool Caribbean (CC) - 2.5x4.5; Certainly Celery - 1x4.25; Pretty in Pink (PIP) - 2 3/8 square; and Watercolor Paper - 2 1/4 square
Ink - LL, Old Olive, CC, Timber Brown, and Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa for coloring the cutey bear; plus markers for the spritzing (Tempting Turquoise and Elegant Eggplant)
Stamps - Bundle of Joy
Other shtuff - Soft Subtle Buttons, Linen Thread, Pink Gingham, Tool Kit, Round Tab Punch, Soft Subtle Brads, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, 1/8 circle punch, Spritzer

I started off by spritzing the LL and CC layers with their coordinating markers, and sponging the CC, Celery, and Lilac layers with a sponge (of all things!). Then I pierced the detail in the bottom corners of the card.

Next I stamped the moon and stars onto CC layer with CC, the "stitched" stars on the Celery with Old Olive. The bear, sentiment (PIP paper punched with the coolio new punch in the Spring Mini), and heart (stamped on Watercolor Paper, watercolored with LL ink pad, and cut out) were stamped with the Timber Brown (Stazon does not bleed AT ALL while watercoloring!) ink pad. (Hope that sentence was not too confusing!!!) I watercolored with ink pads, reinkers (since it was a lot of brown), and a Aqua Painter.

I layered as shown, using Dimensionals b/w all the layers (I use so many, that I've started cutting them in half, and sometimes even in quarters!!! LOL). Remember to add the ribbon, and brads before adhering. Lastly, I tied the thread through the buttons, and stuck 'em down with glue dots!

This is for one of two girls I know having a baby girl. Hope they like it as much do!

Happy Stamping! :)
