A baby card and an oops!

Happy Monday to you all!

First the oops. I promised I would post the wedding invitations when they were ready but Alan and Rachel popped in on saturday to have a peek and took them home to show Rachels Mum. Before I`d had a chance to take pics!. So as soon as I get them back I`ll post, sorry.

Right, onto my card for today. When I first started card making seriously it was because I hurt my foot quite badly and had to rest it for over a month. I was almost crawling the walls with bordom and started to channel hop on the telly and discovered create and craft channel. One of the first programs I watched was a Wendy Stenton pop out cards one where she used a beautiful baby stamp on a star pop out. I tried and tried to get that stamp but the only place I could find it was on a USA site and it was discontinued.. Then the other day while surfing the net (as you do) I happened across this stamp on the Blade Rubber site. Ofcourse I ordered it immediately and it arrived the next day.  I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was. Now I`ve looked on Bladerubber loads of times and it hasn`t been there so I can only assume it`s been brought out of retirement. Anyway I`m chuffed to bits.

So this is it, thestamp is by PSX and I`ve stamped and embossed in detail silver.
I`ve used a tiny bit of colour on the gown but apart from that I`ve left it plain.
I`ve used my old favourite Swiss Dots and finished the edge with a Fiskars punch.
The blue paper is a freebie from Jak Heath and I`ve punched that too.
I`ve added some white and silver ribbon and mounted the stamped image onto a silver star.
The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a spellbinders circle.

I`ve waited seven years for that stamp but I think it was worth it lol
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. wow - a 7 yr wait LOL! your persistance paid off though, what a gorgeous card love the swiss dots on the white so delicate and perfect for a baby.
