CBC50 Neglected Stamps

I used the set A New Little Someone for this challenge it has been a while since I used it. I love this stamp set and really wish we still had it. Works for many things, not just for baby cards.

On this card I used pop dots and I had stamped my image twice and cut out the arms and ears and pop dotted them and layered them on top in the right places. Don't think by the scan you can see that though. I also stamped him on the same designer paper and cut out his pads for his feet, ears and ribbon for around his neck to match.

I stamped my images in Chocolate Chip and also the upper half of the background of this card. Lower half is designer paper which I am not sure where I got it from. I stamped hugs and kisses on it so it can be used as a Get Well Card or a Baby Card. I then cut the designer paper so it went most of the way up just a little over 1/2 way. Then I added chocolate chip ribbon and tied it on the side. I used a large scalloped circle punch I believe it was a 3" punch. Then with Whisper White I added that to the Chocolate chip scallop piece for layering my bunny on. The bunny is cut out and I used pot dots to mount him to the scalloped circle. I also used a chocolate chip marker and went around and put dots on each scallop. And that is pretty much it. It is a basic card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. When mailing a card like this that is popped out or thicker with ribbons ect. It is best to turn the card inside out so it don't get caught when going though the mail and ruining your card.

Please take some time to check out the other girls on the Belli Challenge, they have done some wonderful artwork too.

More Heritage Pages

Here are two more Heritage pages I did. I will share the other two I got done tomorrow. Hope these help you get ideas. Both of these pages have the same stamps on them but they look so different. Think I will add some white craft ink to the sides to make them look more older and worn. I really like how these two turned out. The white craft ink on these make them look silver at times and white at others, depending on the lighting an how it is help.

You can also do up pages like this and cut them in quarters and use them for cards. Or cut them in many pieces and and use them as accents on pages.

I am really enjoying being back to stamping I missed it. I had lost my mojo when I was doing so much for Mom and just didn't have the desire to do any stamping let alone any other craft. Now that she is feeling somewhat better I am back to stamping and think I have my mojo back.

Anyway my sisters and I are getting together every Sunday after noon to stamp so we can get a bunch of pages done. Hoping this works out for all of us.
