His + Hers = Ours

Hello! I have a card to share with you that I made using Sweet Stamp Shop. Let me start off by saying, no... I am not pregnant. I just made the card because the idea popped into my head and I thought it would be adorable. And kinda funny. I hope you think so too!

I managed to score a couple of fantastic Sweet sets on sale when a few of my faves were being retired. The sets are His and Hers, plus Just Icons. Sorry, no link for Just Icons, as those babies are
G-O-N-E.

I started off by stamping the undies on to Mixed Media paper from Stampendous with Onyx Black Memento ink and coloring the trim with Memento markers. The ink and markers are from Imagine Crafts. Then, I fussy cut them out and I die cut a Fitted Frame to fit the underwear. I glued them down, and stamped the plus and equals sign. I added some London Fog ink to the edge of the die cut.

I put that piece aside and cut a white mat to fit my light blue card base. Then, I sprayed the mat with a couple of colors of Glimmer Mist (pink and blue of course!) and let that dry. If you click on my picture above you'll see some of the shimmer from the sprays. While it was drying, I inked the edge of my card base with more London Fog ink, to match the die cut.

Then I stamped the words and hearts on my mat, which had since dried. I glued everything down, and voila! A cute little baby announcement. Seriously though, it's not for me. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
