Baby Girl 'Roo - Stampin' Up! Kangaroo & Company

   I'm joining in the Just Add Ink challenge which has a theme of family this time.  I have a family member who is getting ready to welcome another baby to the family so I wanted to get a head start on having a card ready to celebrate.  This was a perfectly timed challenge for me!


  Isn't that little baby 'roo in the mama's pouch just so cute??  This was a fun card to put together to make it a little girlie without being too over the top.

  I started with a Crumb Cake base then a layer of the Sale-a-Bration Paper Blooms DSP.  For a little bit of a different look I offset it to the upper right.  Next I added a strip of Rococo Rose Scalloped ribbon.

  A Night of Navy square anchors the focal panel. For the gingham panel I first used the Stitched with Whimsy dies on it and then trimmed the excess off from around the stitching.

 Next are the kangaroos.  I stamped both in Memento black and then colored them with Crumb Cake Blends.  Both ears are light Rococo Rose and the bellies are Ivory.  After die cutting them I added some little eyelashes to the baby with a Stampin' Write marker as well as a Blushing Bride (close match to the Rococo Rose) baker's twine bow.  They are then popped on dimensionals.

  For the sentiment I stamped off a Rococo Rose flower from Pretty Perennials and then added the sentiment from the Kangaroo & Company set in Night of Navy and die cut it with the Tasteful Labels dies.  It's popped with dimensionals and embellished with a faceted Rococo Rose gem.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
