Tuesday Throwdown #5


I used my second ever digi stamp with this card? Isn't it adorable? It's called Diaper Pin Baby and it's from Glitter Babes Art Shop.
Glitter Babe is the sponsor for this week's Tuesday Throwdown! The challenge is to use dry embossing on your project. I went with two different cuttlebug embossing folders for my baby card.
I also used an old stencil I had and smooshed ink through it to make those cute pins, bottles and booties on the pale blue strip. In retrospect, I wish they were a bit lower and more visible, but such is art!
Using scor-tape I applied glitter to a thin piece of Orange Zest CS. I love this technique and had been putting off trying it, but am a total convert! The thin silk ribbon was colored with a Copic marker to match the Lemon Tart CS. Some simple stitching and I was done!

Why not join us at Tuesday Throwdown and break out the dry embossing technique! You could win some fabulous prizes from our sponsor, Glitter Babe's Art Shop!

Supplies: Digi stamp from Glitter Babe's Art Shop, sentiment from PTI, CS, ribbon, button from PTI.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good one friends!
