Flourishes April Release Day 3 73

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, April 12, 2012 @ 10:00 PM | , , ,

Hello all and welcome to the last day of Flourishes April Release week! Today we are showing you the beautiful new Hello Baby! set.  
The Hello Baby! set is packed with many darling images and sentiments! I fell in love with the sweet baby shoes image ~ they remind me of my son's (who is now 24 yrs old) first pair (shown in the photo), that I keep in a cabinet within reach :)
I stamped the pretty shoes image on a piece of Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock, colored using Copic markers from the Flourishes Flesh Tones Collection1 then using a Spellbinders Picot Edge Cicles die to cut the image. I sponged on some Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink while holding the die in place to reveal that beautiful picot edge. To make the sentiment tag, I stamped a sentiment from Hello Baby! then cut using a die from the Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die Set.
Copics used from the Flourishes Flesh Tones Collection1:
