Welcome Sweet Baby


I love taking sketches and trying to reduce the number of layers on the sketch.  So...today's card features the sketch over at Just Us Girls.  I masked off all the blue circle and then inked it up to create the oval shape featured in the sketch.  I think stamped the sentiment and border before embossing the sentiment panel. As a final touch, I added the baby die cut.  A sweet little CAS baby card.

What about you?  Layers or no layers as a preference?

Ingredients:
  • Simon Says Darling Baby Stamps/Die nd Really Big Thanks
  • PaperTrey Ink Linen Impression Plate

you are a master maskerer...lol, say that fast 10 times! You make it look like there should be more layers :) I have yet to perfect that so I still have to stick to actual layers. Hope all is well...where's that weekend! ACK!

LOVE your take on the sketch! Great colours too! I have a hard time with CAS so more on the layered side for me :)

So sweet.

Since I'm not a stamper, I have to go with layers, but not so they are big and bulky, just enough to have the images I want. I love your one layer cards, though.

You are definitely a champ at CASifying sketches. :) Love the inked circle and that sweet baby die cut! I'm more of a layers girl but that's just because I'm a nervous stamper! LOL!
