Stamping 411 – Greeting Card Kids

I think this set is adorable!  I'm not one that normally likes to "color" in my images, but this one is hard to resist!  I used the Stamping 411 sketch for my start.



And here is my card:



I started with Bashful Blue as my base card and ran the front thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Celebrations Designer Paper for a banner across the front, and layered it on Pacific Point cardstock.  I punched the top and bottom edge of the Pacific Point with the Eyelet Border Punch.  For the focal piece, I used Greeting Card Kids stamp set and stamped the little boy and girl on Whisper White oval from Ovals #2 die with Black Stazon and layered it on the Old Olive cardstock Oval.  I used my Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to color them in.   I added a wire clip from the Clips Assortment and Pear Pizzazz Ribbon on the left.


For the greeting, I stamped Thinking of You from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Black on Whisper White, punched with the Word Window and layered it on the Modern Label punch in Real Red, then the Scallop Oval punch in Pacific Point.  That was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added a clear Itty Bitty Button with the X punched from Old Olive along the right side of the greeting as a final touch.  I like how it turned out!

Connie– this is just darling. I haven't used these little kids yet and have been a little stumped but this works so beautifully to pair them with this DSP. Great idea and great card! Blessings, Gretchen
