Family Feels.

Hi everybody,

Jill here, and this week, I've got some sweet family vibes for you...

Using the adorable, New Family, from Mama Elephant.

The images in this set are soooo super sweet.  I mean, there's a baby fox in a nappy!  Yup, a baby a nappy!  Just looking at the set makes me want to do a little squeal!

The images themselves are kind of gentle and delicate, so I wanted to keep my card light, and airy to match.

I started by stamping out my cute little family and this pretty leafy vine, colouring them all using alcohol markers, and fussy cutting.  I then added a small watercolour wash onto a piece of card using various Pastel-esque Distress Inks, and left to dry.

My sentiment is from the same New Family set, and is just going to be perfect to send to my friend who has recently announced her family is about to become one bigger (Congratulations Kristina!).  I don't have many 'new baby' sets, so this is a very welcome addition to my collection, and of course, the images are just so sweet and gorgeous, you can use them independently any which way you like.
I stamped out my sentiment in black Verasafine and clear heat embossed, I then built up my scene around it, using foam adhesive for a little dimension.

Like I said, I really wanted this card to be soft and gentle, so I embellished with a scattering of pretty pastel sequins, a few Glossy Accent dew drops, added a natural twine bow, and there you have it.

As always, everything I have used is linked below, so if you haven't already coo'ed over a baby fox in a nappy yet...go do it now!

Hope you like it, see you next week.
