Moon Baby Meets Eastern Beauty for GDP095

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:

GDPD095Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • 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:Stampin' Up!
