Sweet Little Something & Baby Bear

I discovered two uncomfortable truths whilst I was making this card.  Firstly, I'm not fond of making baby cards and secondly, I really suck at lining up three step stamps!

I'm so in awe of all those people who seem to do it so effortlessly!

The baby won't know it's not perfect!

In my mind it was all so serene!  I would stamp the rabbit first, mask it and then stamp the bear.  Hah!  After the third attempt, I decided to scrap the masking idea and make the animals individually then glue them into position.  Hah!

The three step stampin process and I really don't get along well, even with the use of my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to which I eventually resorted!  I still wasn't happy with the sixth attempts but by that time I was mentally and emotionally exhausted - so I'm afraid I decided that close enough was as good as it was going to get!

So, I present slightly imperfect soft toys and a card that wasn't quite as I envisaged it!

Thank you for checking in on my mental health!
'Til next time!

  1. I just ordered the bunny set. I have seen really good images and some pretty bad ones since it was released. I hope I will be able to do a decent one myself. I too struggle with perfect alignment. Such a sweet bunny though. I didn't ever try the bear. He's very cute too but I have a "thing" for rabbits. I like the bunny you did. I am making a note of the colors you chose. I think I know what I want for the brown colors, but not blue or pink ones. Thanks

    1. Thank you so much, Tonilea - you've made me feel much better! It really is a very cute bunny and I'm sure you'll get along with the process much better than I!
