Hi all! We are still in Wisconsin and loving it! We had a get-together with my immediate family last night and it’s amazing how much we’ve grown in numbers. My niece and nephew are both parents; my niece for the second time and my nephew 11 days ago with his son coming on my niece’s birthday. I’ve definitely gotten in some excellent baby time while being here!
I have my card for this week’s MFTWSC sketch and my background stamps are coming in handy again!
I can’t tell you how much I LOVE the Confetti background stamp! I stamped Cryogen, which I love for the built-in shimmer, with Spearmint, Blu Raspberry and Razzle Berry. Definitely a cheerful color combo! To create the middle panel, I stamped with the Pinstripe background stamp, once in Spearmint and then in Razzle Berry to create a little grid effect. Again, I pulled out my Party Balloons dies and stamps, as well as Big Birthday Wishes ala mode. I colored her balloons in with Souffle pens – they are awesome for those types of accents! Here’s another shot with a slightly closer look at the pinstripe grid.
