For a child at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi there, our challenge this time at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is to make a project for a child. Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog as my teamies have created some stunning projects to inspire you and of course you'll want to check out the fab prize from Marina our lovely sponsor from Cottage Crafts. Don't forget we're a stamping challenge so no digs stamps allowed



I've made a little baby card for my DT project. I usually make large cards but i'm really enjoying making little easel cards with my nesties.  The main image is a stamp from Joanna Sheen that I've had for years, I stamped it on watercolour card and painted with distress inks before cutting out with a nestie, leaving the baby girls nightgown trailing out of the die cut shape. I added a little glamour dust for some sparkle on her nightie

I die cut 2 shapes from some whitewash coredinations card with a larger nestie and sanded around the die. I used the larger die to create the easel card base too, using cream card edged with pumice stone distress ink. To finish the card off I added some faux pearls, a little babies feet charm, seambinding ribbon, a pink rose and a little fabric teddy from my stash. The sentiment is a little sticker i've had for years but I thought it would be perfect.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's crafts: Celebrations
Clearly Inspired: Shaped card
Our Creative Corner: Over the edge

  22. how did you cut her out of a nestie without cutting the dress? I love that the dress is hanging off. Love that it is an easel card even though it is in a shape.


    Thanks for making a "shaped" item with us at Clearly iStamp. Hope to see you Friday when the new challenge is posted.
