New Bundle of Joy

It's probably obvious to long-time readers that Bundle of Joy was my favourite baby set. Now that it has retired I don't have an actual baby stamp, but I made sure one of the first hostess sets I got was Punches Three so I could have this "Bundle of Joy" stamp. This card is for my new nephew Karl, using a colour combination I've been dying to use since I physically laid eyes on Pacific Point. Along with the decent splash of purple on the card I sent a couple of Target royal purple suits up for him - he's my nephew he's going to have purple! The chipboard letters have been coloured using a technique picked up from convention, inking them with a dauber and reinker. I actually can't remember if the technique was demonstrated with wetting the letters first but that's what I did by brushing my Aquapainter over them first. The layout was based on WSC81.

I love this colour combo and the bundle of Joy with the baby's name.
It's the teal, blue and purple together!

LOL about the purple suits also!
