Swell News! Sneak peek!!

I am really on a baby theme lately .......wonder why?!!......and this card is no exception!

This cute little mommy-to-be comes from the new set "Swell News", available June 24th at the
Little Paper Shop!

DCWV has a wonderful pack of papers called Nana's nursery pack and I used it for the patterned paper on this card. I know I love it and use it often, and not exclusively for baby cards either.

The Lavender base is from Memory Box which is a heavy enough cardstock to be used as a card base.

The great thing about Memory Box cardstock, is it is white on one side so you can write on the inside without having to add a piece of white paper to write on. That makes it so fabulously simple!

I stamped the main image, from Swell News, twice in brilliance black ink and coloured her with copics and a wee bit of white gel pen. I added a little line by her feet so she wouldn't look like she is floating, which is rather dangerous for a pregnant woman! At least I think so anyway......

I cut out the just the belly part and popped it up on the main image. Then I used my paper cutter to cut a rectangle around her until I got to her tummy and then hand cut a little bump to emphasize her belly - because I am sure she would love that!! LOL!

I layered that onto Papertrey Ink aquamist cardstock.

I stamped the weigh scale in Versamagic spring pansy and then stamped the sentiment on top. What a cute sentiment!

I cut the circle out with the nestabilities and sponged around it with more spring pansy ink.

I layered the sentiment on some more Memory Box lavender paper that was cute out using Stamping Up scalloped punch, then I popped it up on the card.

The flower was punched with the EK Success flower punch in Memory Box lavender paper, doodled on with white gel pen and then adhered to the top left corner.
