welcome baby

I noticed that I've been using a lot of dies and punches on my cards. And most of them used only one stamp. One. I'm extending that streak by sharing another one.


I totally CASEd Chunyuan's card that I spotted in Flickr. As soon as I saw it, I wanted to make a baby card, and I happened to have the same dies as Chunyuan, too.

To keep it a one layer card, I used my scoring board to emboss the raised border from the back of the card and added one more cloud. My one stamp is the sentiment from Paper Smooches. I love Kim's whimsical handwritten sentiments.

I made a similar card to give to a new mom, and personalized it with her baby's name. I can't share it here as I haven't mailed it out yet, but I'm really lovin' these "one stamp" cards. For one thing, it's a breeze to clean my desk, and I'm playing with some older stamps that are finally getting inked.

Thanks for the inspiration, Chunyuan! And thanks for stopping by today.
