Baby Mashup

This week's Friday Mashup challenge was Baby + Punch/Die.
OK, I tried to be clever and wanted to do a baby punchart.  I looked high and low, and was contemplating THIS.  Cute, huh?  Well, I decided I just don't have quite the energy over the weekend to do the intricate work.  However, I decided to send my cousin who just had a baby couple of weeks ago a box of things, and thought I'd make a card for her.  I had a card for her originally, but decided it's not quite her style (a bit too fussy).  So I decided to simplify.  What I wanted to try is use the equivalent of SU!'s Diamond Dust (I think).  The stuff I used is actually from a stamping convention that I went to locally more than 10 years ago.  What reminded me to use it was when I saw THIS card.
I originally intended to use Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.  I was about to ink up the elephants with Certainly Celery, then changed my mind.  I was afraid it would be too light when I put the Dust on top.  So I decided to change to Old Olive.  I cut the circles with my Cr*cut.  Then I decided Pretty in Pink was a bit too bright, so I changed it to Blushing Bride.  Lastly, I was going to use So Saffron for the little strip.  Changed my mind and used a piece of retired Lovely Lilac instead.  The little sentiment flag is from the Petal Cone die.


My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Baby Steps
Ink: Old Olive
Papers:  Old Olive, Blushing Bride, Lovely Lilac (retired)
Accessories: Petal Cone die, Square Lattice embossing folder, Cr*cut, 2-sided adhesive sheet (non-SU), diamond dust (non-SU)

This came out great, I bet it has a nice sparkle in real life. I think the darker shade of green was a better choice as well then using the celery. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.
