Swaps for Milton Keynes 2018 using kids or baby stamp set
My second card for the Pinkies event in Milton Keynes.
The category is a Card using any stamp set from the annual catalogue baby and kids section.
I decided to do a Christmas card and straight away into my mind came the wonderful traditional Baby Bear stamp set.
The simplest of cards are often my favourites. Baby Bear stamped in three stages on whisper white card. Stage 1 uses Crumb Cake stage 2 uses Soft Suede and stage 3 finishes the details in early Espresso. I set up 3 sides of the Stamparatus plates with the baby bear parts. The last side of the plates takes the lovely tongue in cheek BEARY Merry text from the Cookie Cutter Stamp set. Using a Stamparatus means multiples are so easy it’s almost a crime!
A pretty finishing touch which transforms our lovely baby bear into a Christmas one is a sprig of holly taken from the Spirited Snowmen set and cut out before adding 3 real red jewels and sticking on with dimensionals.
The quickest 6 cards ever. Done in a moment or two using the Stamparatus and you know every one will be perfectly the same. I will find it hard to resist making this my family card this year.
