Baby Congrats with Moments Like These

After using just a tiny strip of the new Sweet Li'l Things DSP on my last card (Foxie card) I was inspired by the colours in the rest of the pack to create todays card.
I paired Hello Honey and Tip Top Taupe with stamps from the Project Life set 'Moments Like These' to create a Baby Congrats card.
This week over at Just Add Ink the theme for Challenge #267 is...


Here is my card ...
I'm loving the new Medium Star punch - it looks great with some Gold Metallic Thread tucked up behind and a gorgeous Faceted button to finish it off. Be sure to stick your button down with some Glue Dots so it won't fall off!
Carolina's Tip's & Techniques
  • Its really easy to create your own backgrounds with just words & sentiments from one or many sets.
  • My preference of stamp is always Clear or Photopolymer this certainly makes lining stamps up easier.
  • Arrange them all on your acrylic block and make sure you stamp it on some scrap paper before you start stamping on your card, this way you can move things around if you need to.
  • I try to arrange the words in a easy to repeat shape - on this card I've used a 'rectangle' as my guide for arranging my stamps, this way I can happily stamp away knowing I will be able to cover the whole card front with 'rectangles'.
What do you think of the colours?  Are they colours you would have pairs together?
