New Beginnings

Crafty Cardmakers is having a New Beginning challenge, out first challenge this year.  Hope you join us this.  

For my new beginnings card I decided to make a card for a new baby using a stamp from Stampin Up that I had in my collection for many years.  The stamp was originally a stamp on a roller but I unmounted it from the roller and use it as a conventional rubber stamp.  I have always loved this stamp and have used it as a group of onies or individually. 

I coloured my images with watercolor , and added a heart button, ribbon and a sentiment to complete the card. Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to stop by our  challenge blog to see the inspiring creations of the very talented design team.   


  1. Such a lovely idea to have a clothes line, perfect layout, CarolG

  2. Hi Judy, love your card. I have unmounted some of my roller images too but don't have this adorable one. Wished I did as I could make the cards ahead of time and colour it as you have, would then be good for either boy or girl. Neat!

  3. Super cute and lovely creation! Please visit my new challenge Blog Do-Al(l) Kreativies and show your fab card on it! I would be very glad about it!
