Flying Home Baby Card

It is very rare that I need a baby card so I don’t usually purchase stamp sets specifically for that kind of card. So of course I need one now so I decided to use the adorable set Flying Home. The nest with the baby birds certainly can be adapted for new parents even if they aren’t having triplets. (smile)

I enjoy coloring and with the new Stampin’ Blends it is so easy to look like a pro. Some prefer starting with the lighter shade and then adding the darker one and others like going from dark to light. I have tried both ways and find either way works well. When I did the light Daffodil shading around the nest I used a circular motion instead of going back and forth.

The “hello” and the circle around it are from the Tabs for Everything stamp set. The scalloped circular punch is retired but it worked so well with this. The sentiment inside the card is from Baby Bear stamp set.

Do you see that little black spot on the bottom left of the card? I was just finished making this card and had black ink on my finger and got it on the card. Does that ever happen to you? Ugh!
