I used the Sweetest Gift stamp set and I am Me Designer Series paper to make this baby boy card. First I started with a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White card stock, and created a cloud background using Soft Sky ink, a sponge dauber, and a punched scrap of paper of the icing from the Cupcake Builder punch. Starting at the top of the Whisper White card stock, I set down the icing scrap paper down and sponged the top side of it. Then I moved the scrap and sponged again. Always only sponging above the top part of the icing (not around the entire piece), and then gradually moving the scrap down, and repeating. I then punched a 2 1/2" circle out with my circle punch and sponged around the edges with Soft Sky.
Because the stork is a sold image, and I wanted the stork to be white (or light), I used my Smoky Slate and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers. I inked up the stork with the markers, then stamped it off on my Grid Paper. Then I reinked only the Pumpin Pie parts, and remoistened the stamp by huffing on it (warm breath), and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then used a blender pen and a very light amount of Basic Gray ink and highlighted parts of the stork. Last I added a Basic Gray dot on the eye, and then hand cut it out.
I realize these instructions maybe confusing for you beginners! I will make a video for this one and put it up within a week.
