Great Stamp Swap 2010

Happy Monday!

I had a fantastic weekend celebrating year one of two funny little boys...more on that later. This week is a good one on the old bloggy blog. The Hero Arts Flickr Group put out a call for crafters to pair up and create some cards using the same stamps. Sounded like a fun way to get a few new card ideas (and maybe a few new readers? hello there!), so I signed right up.

My partner in crime is Nicky Hsu. Jump over to her blog each day this week and leave her some love. Her cards are VERY creative!!

{Day One: Adorable Baby Girl}
My card:


I kept this card light and simple. I stamped the background in a pale pink, then stamp a mix of the icons on a piece of kraft paper and filled them in with colored pencils. Love that look. Managed to use one of the pastel mini safety pins (one of a million) I have left over from a project last year.

Nicky's card:

Cute, right? I love the look of the white ink on kraft paper!
* A note about this stamp: I got this as a gift, but lately, I have known many more baby boys than girls. I have found I can use this for boys as well, it's got a lot of images on it. I really want to figure out how to stamp the mobile that says 'it's a girl', and mask off the girl. Any ideas?
Come back tommorow for a set of cards that are very fashionable. And maybe a few baby pics ;)
Later,
Michelle
