I have a couple of cards to share today using Lisa Johnson's newest set called "Beautiful Baby"!

This card is unique in the way that I used the coordinating "Beautiful Baby" Die-namics. I laid the large elephant on to my card stock cut side up....so that I would be debossing into my cardstock. This gives a very large letterpress look vs. debossing the cut side which just gives an outline.  You can see how well it presses into the cardstock in the close up photo.

I then cut a little mask with this die and placed it over the elephant and then stamped the new "Star Background" in lemon drop ink.
Here is a look at the inside of the card.....love the sweet tooth pigment ink!

My next card I used a post it not to mask a horizon line across the top third of the card. I stamped both elephants in chocolate brown ink.

The sentiment is in steel blue ink....and the sweet little heart is done in bubblegum ink.

Here is a look at the inside....simple stamping but the elegant font leads to such a classy look! I love that!







Here are the products that are going to be available April 8th!
