cute as a bug

I had a fun day today…shopping with a friend!  :0)  But before we were shopping, we met up with another friend who is expecting a baby very soon.  I missed her shower and wanted to deliver a gift.  Along with the purchased items, I wanted to make a little something handmade.

Here is what I came up with.  I wasn’t sure if it would be a boy or girl so I was hoping this would be ok either way. 


I was really pleased that the Copics worked well on the frame.  Just like on fabric, they did not blend well…but there was very minimal bleeding of the color. 

The tiny black background dots were made with a stamp that has a row of dots.  I just kept inking only the first dot. 

And here’s a matching card to go with it…the words here and on the frame are from AmyR’s new Baby Sentiments.


And I snapped a quick pic of the inside so you can see the verse (also from Amy’s set).  I love this sentiment!


stamps- Gingersnaps Oh Baby! and Fairy Junebug (dots) by C.C. Designs, AmyR Baby Sentiments; paper- Real Red, white, black, dp- Making Memories; ink- Memento Black; accessories- frame, Copics, Stickles, circle punches, ribbon, Martha Stewart Scalloped Dot punch.
