Happy for you, dear


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.
