Wednesday Card Day – Just Arrived

Wednesday Card Day Intro

Hi everyone! I was recently at Michael’s and they had a huge sale on their older stamps and when I saw two baby themed sets from Fiskars and Stampendous, I couldn’t resist. So I decided to use them for today’s cards. Here is my first card —

Just Arrived Girl

I started this card with some Bazzill card stock in Cotton Candy cut to a standard size card. I used some of the mini images from both sets to create my own background. I repeatedly stamped the images in Versamark and then heat embossed it with some Martha Stewart clear embossing powder. I originally wanted to use sparkle embossing powder but I did not like way it looked so I changed my mind and used clear instead.

For the front panel, I cut the third biggest die from the Sizzix Fancy Labels #3 die set from white card stock. I positioned the stork and sentiment from the Fiskars set and stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored in the image with an assortment of marker brands – I used the Fine Touch markers from Hobby Lobby and a few Bic Mark It markers. I don’t really know how to blend alcohol markers so I normally just do fast coloring and try to blend based on what I think looks right.

To finish the card, the attached the front panel with foam squares and applied some glitter to the baby blanket with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

I also made a blue version for a baby boy —
