I am so excited (more than normal) to write this blog post. As the winner of the WWYS #100 challenge, I get to be a guest designer for this week’s What Will You Stamp Challenge #103 (#WWYS103) using the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Moon Baby stamp set. This stamp set is just so so so cute don’t you think?
When I found out Moon Baby was the selected stamp set for my time as the WWYS Guest Designer, I instantly had an idea for a card. I was a bit daunted by the colouring aspect of the stamps, however the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolour pencils make it soooooooooooo easy (and quick!) to colour in the stamps.
I used the layered circle framelits to cut the circle in the card front and then adhered the moon using some baker’s twine and snail tape.
The babies in this set are just the cutest. Look how sweet this one is resting on the moon… I believe she is dreaming sweet dreams and about all the wonderful things that happened in her day. She just looks so calm and peaceful. Holding on so tight to that star makes me believe she is wishing upon a star.
I stamped the “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star…” sentiment for the front of the card and then on the inside I stamped the sentiment “do you know how loved you are”?
I used the melon mambo watercolour pencil for the jumpsuit, daffodil delight for the moon and star and then a light coverage of calypso coral for the skin and hair.
I love an interactive card and once I started creating with this stamp set, I didn’t want to stop! So, I made another card! This time I used the Sliding Star Framelit Dies to make my card interactive and have the baby “fall” down my card like he was in a shower of stars.
My colouring on the stars was not precise at all. I simply drew a little yellow circle in the middle of each star using the Daffodil Delight watercolour pencil and then using an aqua painter, circled over the colour dot so the colour spread. I wanted the stars to look subtle and have an “aura” about them.
I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to join the very talented team over at What Will You Stamp? Be sure to pop on over and check out their creations for this challenge; all their cards are adorable.
