After The Cupcake Is Over

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi to kb9upk who recently joined my little following.  So lovely to have you along.  In case anyone is wondering about the chocolate and courgette muffins all I can say is


YUM!!

I have recently become enamored by Unity Stamps and all the fun things they do.  I had some new stamps arrive and one of them was 'My Panda Balloon'.  So cute.  The first thing that struck me was that the balloon resembled a baby panda and so a baby card was born.  So to speak.....



I've used STAMPlorations sketch for my LO and the colours were inspired by this months Unity Challenge colour inspiration.  I used a dark green base card.  Added a layered of green marbled card which I covered in orange splatters and some black archival smudges.  The ivy paper is from a Sizzlits pad, a piece of orange card and a piece of Making Memories Spook Alley patterned paper.  The 'baby' is Sizzix Baby Clothes Line decorative strip die and the leafy flourishes are part of Crafty Individuals Victoria Corner die.  I stamped the photo frame from SMAK Sept 2012 kit on the bottom of the Spook Alley paper to ground the panda.  I stamped Unity 'My Panda Balloon' and cut out both pandas.  Then I layered the baby on the big panda, covered with Wink of Stella clear and glossy accents.  


So cute or what??

  10. What a fabulous and unique baby card! I love that you went with a nontraditional color palette and how you incorporated so many floral elements. It is both adorable (panda) and sophisticated at the same time. Thanks for inspiring me to re-evaluate how I would make a baby card! I'm so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
