Layers of Color Monday - For Baby

Hi All!

Hope everyone is off to a good start this week. We're home, snowed in again! It's fine though, my son is off from school and maybe we will all get a chance to play outside as it's suppose to be a little warmer today. If you call 30 degrees warm, which with the temps we've had lately, that's like a heat wave!

I have a couple cards to share today that I made using some brand new Layers of Color stamps! Layers of Color just released 11 new stamp sets to add to their collection of clear art stamps. For my cards, I used the new set Polka Dot Parade. It's a fun stamp set, which I find perfect for baby projects. So I made two cards, one for a baby girl and one for a baby boy.

This is my It's a Girl card using the giraffe stamp from Polka Dot Parade. I also used Parisian Summer DSP on this card and colored the giraffe to match. The cardstock colors are Pink Pirouette, Blush, and So Saffron. I did some paper piercing and added a photo corner and felt flower to the image piece. The final touches were brads, felt flowers, and a charm. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet, a SU! set.

This second card is Welcome Baby Boy and I used the elephant stamp from Polka Dot Parade. The striped paper is an old piece from a scrap kit I've had laying around unused. The cardstock colors are Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery. This is a more simple card as compared to the girl card, probably because I have a much harder time making masculine cards. The sentiment is the same as on the girl card.

It's funny, I had planned to share these cards today, but found out some news this morning that makes them very relevant! I want to wish someone special a big Congratulations! We are very excited! :)

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll take a hop on over to Layers of Color and check out all the new stamp sets and see some fantastic creations in the design team galleries.

Have a great Monday, happy stamping! :)
