welcome, little one

I think Nursery Necessitites is my absolute favorite baby set I have. It's simply adorable!! Today I'm using Cambria's sketch WSC80 and chose some monochromatic blues by rummaging through my stash of old retired paper and I found this sheet from an old Christmas pack. Nice! I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the image a couple times in the same place to get a bolder image and then placed the sentiment underneath. I'll do this with my SAMJ for my stamps that are big, solid images and it works great!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

recipe -
stamps: nursery necessities
ink: bashful blue, staz-on black
paper: bashful blue, not quite navy, whisper white cardstock, retired holiday paper (can't remember the name)
accessories: bashful blue striped grosgrain ribbon, circle/scallop nestabilities (spellbinders), stampin' dimensionals
