Welcome Baby! {SSSC242}

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!

It’s time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  This week we are up to SSSC242!


I took this week’s sketch as an opportunity to create a baby card for my neighbors that is long overdue.  I’ve used the sweet Beautiful Baby set along with the coordinating Beautiful Baby Die-namics.  It’s my go-to baby set!  I cut the elephant from Smooth White Card Stock using the Beautiful Baby Die-namics and stamped the panel with Grout Gray Premium Dye Ink using the Beautiful Baby set.  I popped the elephant up with Jody Boosters onto a panel of Sno Cone Card Stock cut with the new Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics, and I stamped this panel with the Star Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I then stamped “Welcome Baby” using Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink at the top of the panel.  I added a star cut from Banana Split Card Stock using Blueprints 8 Die-namics.

I added the flags to either side instead of the rectangle panel, and they were cut from Smooth White Card Stock using the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and stamped with the Striped Background using Banana Split Premium Dye Ink.  I then layered the main panel onto a panel of Steel Grey Card Stock which I embossed with the Swiss Dots Cover Up Die-namics and the Embossing Pad Duo.  I then layered this onto the main panel, cut from Grout Gray Card Stock using the Blueprints 13 Die-namics and stamped with the Star Background using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I added a mat of Smooth White Card Stock cut with Blueprints 2 Die-namics, and finished off the front with enamel dots and a rhinestone.


On the inside, I cut two panels with the Blueprints 13 Die-namics, Smooth White Card Stock and Grout Gray Card Stock, and stamped the Smooth White Card Stock panel with the Diagonal Stripes Background using Banana Split Premium Dye Ink.  I stamped another sentiment from Beautiful Baby, “for a special Little One” using Steel Grey Premium Dye Ink.
