Hi there, again! I have lots of posts lined up for you today. We have another fun PaperPlay Challenge to help you break into your stash of tools: Use a Die. I thought I'd dust off some of my less loved Spellbinders and since I was in need of another baby card, I thought I'd break into my Authentique collection.
Stamps: (Hearts of Old Background) Unity
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Spring Moss) Papertrey Ink; (Delightful) Authentique
Ink: (Memento - London Fog) Tsukineko; (Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Fresh Snow) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: (Nestabilities - Classic Hearts) Spellbinders; (Miracle Girl - Noteables, Icons) Authentique; (Very Vintage Buttons - White & Cream Mix, Autumn Mix; Rustic Twine - Cream); (Wood Veneer - Stars; Mister Huey - Pumpkin Spice) Studio Calico
This Authentique collection is actually meant for a little girl, but this had so many cute tags and had enough neutral colors, that one can stretch it for a cute little baby boy. I really loved the animals and the "Little One" sentiment...I drew the rest of the pattern paper scheme based on these two items...
Those wood veneer stars are actually sprayed with Pumpkin Spice mist and appear much more orange in real life than the above picture depicts. I couldn't get the picture to lighten up without the stars to darken...picture manipulation is still a big mystery for me. So if you know any tutorials or favorite websites for photo dummies like myself, please leave a suggestion :) Thanks in advance!
Finally an up close shot of the heart die cut, that I sponged with Fresh Snow ink. The button is threaded with some fun rustic cream twine and adds a nice accent to the animal die cut.
Hope you like this little wee card. Hop on over to see how the rest of the PPC girls used a die! Hope you will be playing along with us this week...
