CDS Sneak Peek - Welcome Little One

Today, I have a baby boy card to show you and while doing so I get to introduce you to a new set called Welcome Little One by Clear Dollar Stamps that I illustrated :) This set has some sweet sentiments in it, a teddy bear, baby carriage, baby blocks and a stork image. To see this set fully, please visit the Clearly iStamp blog.

I picked out the teddy image to feature today, and made it a slightly more boyish card by adding the blue but kept a more vintage feel to the card with a lot of subtle sponging and more traditional patterns. The bear was water coloured and then popped up on a sponged and prisma pencil background. I added some cross stitching to the left side of this 4x6" card but accidentally covered some of it up because I made the yellow panel a bit too long...but it was already put together and sewn so I used it pretend you didn't notice my boo boo, 'kay? :D

I used some of the tropical mist ribbon from the Clearly Coordinating Collection to fasten my button to and hand the little die cut tag from. I love how this ribbon was able to coordinate so well with my basic grey papers :D

Thanks for swinging by today and don't forget about all of the other fabulous sets that the girls are showing off today! Have fun blog hopping :D
