Baby cards

Two of my lovely friends became Grandmothers this month!  Here is a picture of the card I made (I cheated and made them both the same cards!  I was running short of time so it was just easier to make two of the same)

Sorry about the wonky photo.

Here's what I used:

Stamps: Fun and Fast Notes
Inks: Blue Bayou, Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Staz-On black
Paper: Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, Not Quite Navy, Watercolour paper
Accessories: Purely Pomegranate stitched grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
Tools:Word Window Punch, Aquapainter

You may notice that the sentiment is a long way away from the image.  When you purchase the Fun and Fast Notes set, you can actually cut the sentiment apart from the image and mount it on the end of the wood block.  I like to do this now so that I can use my images and sentiments separately more easily.  If you don't like to cut yours apart like this, you can just ink up the part of the stamp that you want with a marker or do it carefully near the edge of the ink pad.

Next time I have the time to blog, I will post some photos of my stamps that have been cut and mounted in this way so you can see the difference and the versatility.
