For this week’s Global Design Project Theme Challenge (Kids) I paired Moon Baby with Eastern Beauty. Could there be a more unexpected pairing?! Well, I promise the two came together just the way I wanted them to. Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the theme challenge that inspired my card:
- Moon Baby. Moon Baby is 100% a baby stamp set – sleeping baby, baby flying with an umbrella (he’s totally flying, not falling) and sweet sentiments. For my kids-themed card, I focused in on that time when a baby is quickly becoming a kid. Remember that time when a child starts to exchange their stuffed animals for new friends? That is the time I targeted here. I stamped these animals all over a panel of Whisper White and then topped it with a fun sentiment from Eastern Beauty. Here’s a look at the sweet Moon Baby set:
- Get in Line. I used my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up these animals all over the background of this card. While you could “eyeball” it on your own, I find that the Stamp-a-ma-jig is the easiest way to guarantee a perfect lineup with red rubber stamps. I even use this tool with photopolymer stamps on occasion. What fun! If you fear the Stamp-a-ma-jig, I suggest you pick one up and use it a couple of times. I think you’ll soon get the hold of it and appreciate the precision you can achieve with it. 🙂
- Sweet Color Combination. I love the combination of purple and yellow. To create a mix of soft and bright on this card, I used two shades of purple – Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder. With Daffodil Delight, these purples really shine. If you like this combination of colors, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Moon Baby, Eastern Beauty Papers: Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White Inks: Archival Basic Black, Stampin’ Write Markers (Daffodil Delight) Accessories: Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Banner Triple Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Global Design Project site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
