Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Baby Card

Finally I was able to stamp today! Yahoo! I miss it when I cannot create something. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to coordinate colors. I used Soft Subtles for this card. This card is for a Late Night Stampers Yahoo Group challenge to use pastel colors and NO NEUTRALS! Do you know how hard that is.

The flower is made from two Scallop Circles Item # 113468 cut with the Big Shot from Shades of Spring DSP Item # 117160 and Pretty in Pink card stock.  I inserted the head in between the two flowers.  The cheeks are chalked with Pretty in Pink pastel chalk.  The little strip of hair is cut from the Swirly Sizzlilts Decorative Strip Die Item # 113456 as is the stem of the flower.  The small flowers are punched from Pretty in Pink with the Boho Blossoms punch Item # 110711.  The Barely Banana card stock is run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder Item # 117335 in the Occasions Mini and punched with the Sale-a-Bration mini's Scallop Trim Border punch.  This punch is free with any $50 purchase of merchandise less taxes and shipping charges.  This punch will be available for sale in the upcoming 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. Hello Baby is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set Item # 115370 stamped with Certainly Celery Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder.  I then punched it out with the Word Window punch Item # 115090 and matted it with a piece of Pretty in Pink card stock punched with the Modern Label punch Item # 116630

I thought about babies and spring when I heard the challenge so I combined the two! I think it turned out cute. I am sure the idea for the bloomin' baby is not original to me, but I did not case anyone's card. Hope you enjoy it! (I wrote this post on Thursday, February 25th, 2010)

Have a wonderful stampin' day!
