Volunteering at the book fair for the school this week - not much time so I must make fast cards! Happy news today - I found out a friend is expecting! Lockhart sweeeeeeet ice cream and pickles image was stamped on white cardstock and colored with markers. I outlined everything with my favorite BV31 pale lavender so it would make the images 'pop'. I used a Tim Holtz trick for this one! I cut the white cardstock to the size I wanted, then realized I wanted the 'congratulations' really low - there was not enough room for the stamp-a-ma-jig to 'grab' the cardstock. So, using Tim's trick to make grungeboard 'hold still' (see his step 8), I took a glue dot (a mini one) and placed it on the back of my white stamped piece, then stuck it to my non-stick craft sheet. Presto! It held in place for me to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig! This layout and stamp usage was inspired by Trudee Sauer's post here - her card is absolutely gorgeous!!!!!
