Hi! This is the third blog post in a series about Sadie’s book! If you’re looking to read more, head to the ‘Album’ menu! When creating this book I didn’t know the sex of my cousin’s baby – this project was an attempt at gender neutral. Hence, why you see a lot of project life cards that show both male and female images.
Week 5: You might have noticed my cards have a lot of white space, in fact, all the ‘week’ cards start with a white background. This made it easier for coloring with my copic markers. In the future, I’d consider using craft card stock or even vellum for some of the cards.
This first card uses a stamp set by Mama Elephant called ‘Pottied Pretties’. The set comes with several different plants and faces that can be mixed and matched. I stamped the image in Versamark ink and colored it in with copic markers.
Week 6: This next card uses a stamp set by Neat & Tangled called ‘Sailmates’. Like the other card, images were stamped in Versamark ink on a mixed media paper and then colored with copic markers. I finished the card up with some glossy accents.
Week 7: Using a set by Tiddly Inks called ‘Mini and Many Friends’ I stamped the little boy and girl. Taking a flag stamp by Paper Smooches I created the boxes around the boy and girl and proceeded to color them in with copic markers.
Week 8: With a stamp set called ‘Tree Friends’ by Mama Elephant I made the last project life card of this series. Once stamped and colored I added a vellum banner on which I heat embossed ‘8 weeks’. All of the number and letters are from an alphabet set by Lawn Fawn. Lastly, I attached the banner with my mini-stapler.
