So happy you joined us today for the second day of the Newton’s Nook Designs March Release!
Giveaway alert!! NND is giving this stamp set away to one lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!
I thought it would be fun to use the same card sketch and interpret it in two different ways. On the baby boy card I stamped a few cute little onesies with a black waterproof ink on a watercolor paper. Made a super simple light wash of watercolors trying to keep it very soft. I also added a little bit of shading around the stamped onesies.
Assembling the card, I adhere on a foam tape a scalloped stitched white panel that was die-cut with NND new Sky Borders die releases just yesterday. And finished with a few non distractive embellishments.
And here’s the baby girl version. I used once more Sky Borders die for the take on the sketch, but started with stamping a bunch of small hearts from NND Sweater Weather stamp set for the bottom section and a cute onesie with hearts. I used the same watercolor paper on this card and only one pink shade color. The gradient look was achieved by adding different amount of water: more concentrate color gives a more vibrant look, white a more diluted color becomes more soft.
I used Stitched Onesie die to die-cut my stamp. This die is SO ADORABLE and CLEVER done!!! It can be used on its own or combining with the stamps from Lovable Laundry stamp set! In this case you will finish to have a faux stitching inside the stamp that looks really gorgeous! I’m in love with this die!!!
My original plan was to add two little cloth-pins to the onesie, but they were too big for this card so I simply added two paper bows to “anchor” the stamped image on my card front.
