Welcome Little Baby



I am seriously having way too much fun with the papers from My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow "Grow" collection (that's a mouthful, huh?). Today's card uses an image and sentiment from Children of God by Our Daily Bread Designs. I stamped the image of Jesus with the children (the full image shows a full-length Jesus and also has a young child standing to Jesus's right) in Versafine Onyx Black, clear embossed, and then cut out just the part of the image with Jesus holding the baby. Coloring is done with Copic markers.

All the ivory parts are cut with Spellbinders dies (circle Nestabilities, Labels 4 Nestabilities, and Double Ended Tags) and sponged with Old Paper Distress Ink for an aged look. I popped up the circles for some dimension. The beautiful ribbon is my latest addiction - Papertrey's Aqua Mist satin ribbon. Scrumptious! I colored white brads with a Copic marker to get the aqua color. The die-cut orange border along the bottom was done with the Fancy Scalloped Border Piercabilities, also by Spellbinders.

Hope you're having an awesome week so far!

Very pretty. I am amazed at how you pull papers together with images I would never dream of putting together to make incredible cards. That "old paper distress" ink is perfect for this...I must buy that :) The double Nestie circle on the large label Nestie (white on white on white) is very striking. Well done!!!

I just love how you use your nestabilities as background layers! That is so cool- another technique to add to all of the great ideas I get from you! Thanks for sharing!

You know I'm not religious, but I LOVE that stamp. Very moving...I think it would work with a condolensce card for someone who miscarried too. Maybe.

I am just struck by how much I like that image cropped like that. The whole layout is beautiful and balanced. I'm not generally fond of Aqua, but this is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for your beautiful inspiration. God bless you. Elizabeth S. in mid-Michigan.
