Lindy’s Stamp Gang May Color Challenge



Hi everyone, today I would like to show you my take on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang May Color Challenge mood board. Since these colors are very pastelly I felt they were perfect for a couple of baby girl cards.



Let’s get started!


Step 1:

To get my project started I stamped two of the images from the Kennedy Grace Creations stamp set called “Sweet Baby Mine” onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink and I clear heat embossed afterwards using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Clearly Clear embossing powder”.

Next I colored the images using the following Lindy’s colors: Magical Shaker in “Stormy Silver” and Magicals in “Frenchy’s Pink Pouf” and “Edelweiss Moss Green” in combination with water and a small brush. When the coloring was done I added some highlights using a white Gelly Roll pen and then fussy cut the images leaving a small border.



Step 2:

For my background panels I die cut two panels from watercolour paper, each panel two sizes smaller than my card base. Then I decided on my lay out and what stencil to use for my background. I placed my stencil of choice (TCW908s) over the panel and applied some The Crafter’s Workshop “Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste” over the stencil, using a palette knife and set them aside to dry.

When dry I then added some of the green colored powder to my panel, using a fan brush, and sprayed the powder with water which makes the color run. When I liked what I had I dried the panel with my heat tool.

To add some interesting details I splatted some of the pink color, left over from the previous step, on the panel and dried this as well. I totally love how soft and delicate these background panels turned out!


Step 3:

For my sentiments I choose one by Clearly Besotted (“Little Onesie”) and stamped the words onto some black card stock after using an anti-static powder tool on the paper. For stamping I used VersaMark ink and I heat embossed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Wowzers White” embossing powder.


After stamping I die cut a banner shape around the sentiment using the middle sized die in the Lawn Fawn “Everyday Sentiment Banners Die Set”.



Step 4:

Now all I have to do is to put my cards together. I die cut a slightly larger panel from some matching pink card stock and adhered this panel and the watercolor panel together using liquid glue. Than I adhered the sentiment banner shape also using liquid glue, wrapping it around the back on one side, and adhering on the back using regular tape.

To finish these cards I now only have to adhere this combination to a creme colored linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape and to add the colored and fussy cut image on top also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that’s it for today’s baby girl card project! I wish you a creative day!
