Baby Card Again

Hi Everyone!! Happy Sunday to all of you. I made this card last night and I had a lot of fun coloring the image from this stamp set from Inkadinkado. Inkadinkado sells a whole bunch of cute clear acrylic stamps. I went over to JoAnns on Friday after my doctor's appt and oh, my gosh. . .did I splurge or what!!

All their stamps were 40% off and I went nuts and bought a whole bunch of the clear Inkadinkado stamp sets. If I had enough money, I probably would have bought them all!! They were all sooooooooo cute!

Since becoming a CTMH consultant, I have a tendency to buy acrylic stamps because they take up so little space and I can buy a lot of them at a lower cost. Low cost means more stamps! Yay!

I can take as much as 40 stamp sets and place them in a plastic container, bring them down to the family room, color the images and stamp while I watch TV with my family.



We love to watch movies and many times, I'm always torn between making cards and projects (which in the past I had to do mainly in my craft room) and spending time with my family. Now that I can bring a lot of my supplies, tools, and materials down to the family room, I can do both and its been FABULOUS!!! I can color and stamp a whole bunch of images while watching a movie. In the past, I was limited to a few stamp sets because the wood mounted stamps were heavy and bulky. Now I can pick and choose what I want to stamp and color when I use the acrylic stamps.

Anyway. . .I colored the card using markers with an aquapainter brush on watercolor.

Paper: DCWV Nursery paper, SU Rose Romance cardstock
Ink: CTMH Markers with aquapainter on watercolor paper

What can I say but "CUTE, CUTE, CUTE"! The Joann's here in Cedar Rapids, IA doesn't carry hardly anything. Just maybe some scrapbook papers & some ribbons, & brads. It changes periodically but they never have stamps. Oh well,guess I'll just have to get them off the website. I just love that baby:)

OMG! I did the exact same thing when I was at our JoAnn's (I thought I was the only one!). One of the only sets I didn't get was this baby set. I think I might be using my 40% off coupon to go back and get it after seeing your super cute card!

Maria, this is so cute! I love that image! That baby reminds me of my DD #2 when she was little. She couldn't eat without getting it all over her face! Your layout and DP is wonderful too! I love it all!
I had to laugh as I was scrolling down through your blog today and noticed that you have my link listed as bouncyflouncy-becky. Hmmmm! I wonder what that means? Hee hee!
Have a great day, I'll chat wichya later!
