Let the Cute begin

I'm back! Hopefully good and regular for a while now. I've had a lovely time away with my family (although it was HOT where we were...40+ every day) and am feeling refreshed and ready to take on a new year!

There has been a fair bit of cute happening around here lately, with my twin nieces just hitting the 7 week mark. They are just adorable, and very good babies too (what a blessing!). I have even had them overnight to give my SIL and BIL a break. I just love the sentiment on this card, and I made one similar to this for my SIL when she had her girls:

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI stamped the main image in Black stazon ink, and watercoloured with my Aquapainter and Watercolour crayons. These are my favourite way to colour, and give the most fool-proof results on regular cardstock (in my opinion). I wanted some Barely Banana ribbon, and Stampin' Up! don't have any, so I just pulled out my standby White Taffeta ribbon, and coloured it with a Barely Banana marker. The Polka dot paper is "Bali Breeze" (from the Summer Mini). I felt like the card needed a little extra something to balance the right-hand side, so I trimmed the edge off, attached a piece of Whisper White cardstock inside, and stamped 'All Scallops' in Regal Rose ink. The little jumpsuit was crying out for some bling, so I used some Tombow glue and Chunky glitter on it. It's lovely and pink and sparkly in real life.

Stamps: Big on Spring, All Scallops
Ink: Black Stazon, Regal Rose
Cardstock: Barely Banana, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Whisper White
Other: White Taffeta ribbon, Barely Banana marker, Watercolour Wonder Crayons (Regal Rose, Rose Red, Barely Banana), Chunky Sprinkles glitter, Tombow multi adhesive
