Retro Rubber Challenge No.45 - Baby Boy Card with Clear and Simple Stamps
Hello everyone!! Happy Hump Day! The week is almost over. LOL. Today I wanted to show you a card I made for the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog. This week's Challenge 45 is a sketch challenge -
I had so much fun with this sketch. I needed to make a baby boy card so I pulled out this set called Cart Pals: Baby by Clear & Simple Stamps. I think I have owned this set for over 3 years now and am just getting to ink it up. It's a great set and since this sketch is so easy, I plan on making a baby girl card and a few others with this set.
(A side note here - Clear & Simple is having a "retiring" party and this set is one of the sets retiring. It normally sells for $24 but is on on sale for $16.80. Once the retiring sets are gone, they will be gone. So if you like this set, grab it. You can check out all of the retiring items HERE. Also, I earn nothing if you make a purchase. I am just passing along some great savings to my followers).
Back to the card - I started with a top folding A2 card base of white cardstock. To the front I adhered a piece of decorative paper from the My Baby Boy paper pad by American Crafts.
Then I did all my stamping and die cutting. First thing I did was to stamp the baby toys, the wagon, and the bear from the Cart Pals: Baby set and then I had my Scan N Cut cut them out for me (or you can fussy cut). I also die cut a few of the smallest star from Pierced Stars out of dark blue glitter fun foam and two different sized circles using Stitched Circle Layers - the larger circle from navy blue cardstock, the smaller circle from white cardstock.
I cut a strip of the same navy blue cardstock, 5 1/2" x 1" and a piece of white cardstock, 5 1/2" x 7/8". I adhered the white cardstock to the navy blue and then adhered them to the card front. Then I adhered the white stitched circle to the navy blue, which I adhered over the strip. Then I stamped the phrase "Welcome Baby Boy".
Next I colored in the 3 images using Copic Markers and adhered the toys and the bear behind the wagon so it looks as if they are sitting in the wagon. Then I adhered this to the center of the white circle. Final steps were to adhere the 3 stars around the front and apply some Glossy Accents to the bottle to give it a glass look.
That's it. Done!! I really love this sketch. With one piece of patterned paper, an image in the circle (for any holiday or occasion) and a phrase....and you are done! Easy to pump out a bunch of these at one time. I hope you can find some time to enter a card of your own in the challenge - click HERE for all the info!! Until next time -
