This stamp and die set by Spellbinders is just perfect for a friend or family member expecting a new baby! I had a very special person in mind while creating this, and I cant wait to send it to them as a congratulations.
This NEW ARRIVAL set has this cute image of the stork and baby, as well as a number of sentiments. There is some coordinating dies, as well as a few extra dies to help you build a scene.
The first thing I did to create this card was stamp out the stork using my MISTI and my BRUTUS MONROE DETAIL INK. I love this ink because once it is dried completely, it is permanent with most mediums. You can use it for alcohol markers OR watercolors! No guessing which ink to use anymore!
After my image was dried, I colored it in with my STYLEFILE MARKERS. These markers are an alcohol marker, but a cheaper alternative to some other brands. I used some light pinks for the blanket, and some light greys and blues for the stork.
Next, I die cut the stork with the coordinating die, and then I also cut out a few clouds and stars. I ink blended some color onto all these pieces using my BRUTUS MONROE SURFACE INKS. I chose some of my lighter colors to keep this card soft.
I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of vellum using my BRUTUS MONROE ALABASTER EMBOSSING POWDER.
After all my pieces were cut, colored, and embossed, I arranged them on the front of the card. A few of the pieces are adhered with my BRUTUS MONROE CRAFT GLUE, and other pieces are adhered with foam tape in order to give a little dimension.
Lastly, I added some sequins and some light grey baker’s twine as embellishments.
This was such a cute card to create, and I cannot wait to send it off to congratulate the arrival of a new little one soon!
