Some time back I got this FAB old SU set (the name of which elluded me and the seller) from eBay, but it has the CUTEST bear. There are 13 stamps in the set all tolled and it is circa 1993. So old infact that SU mounted on black foam...not wood!!!
So here's where the OCD with the bear began.....
Recently, one of the gals I use to work with some years ago had a little baby girl. She named her Nadia. So I went to this beautiful set and tweaked it a bit. Here's the result...
As you can see, instead of using the ribbon/ ric-rac, I spelt the name of the baby in 1/2" and 3/4" circles. It was stamped onto SU Very Vanilla CS in Basic Brown ink. Unfortunately, I can't tell you the name of the alphabet set because I have had it for so long it has worn off the container. Each letter is on a circular peg like wooden mount....so they are super-dooper easy to use. The corners of the squares were done with a 1/4" circle punch. SU have a ticket corner punch, but I don't....so I had to improvise.....and it worked a treat!!
Oh yeah....and I AM AWARE I used a heap of pink for this card....LOL!!!
