day 2 STAMPlorations spotlight - Baby Bump


Welcome to day 2 of Spotlight Week - five new sets, one to be spotlighted each day this week. Ready?

Here is today's spotlighted set - The Bee's Knees Baby Bump designed by Shirley B.



Remember a Toyota commercial from way back? "You asked for it, you got it, Toy-o-ta". Well, when I saw this set in development I was reminded of this card. So I asked Shirley if she could maybe work a little baby bump into the set. She did! So I had to give it a go. Here is what I did with it.


Now, DH saw this laying on the table and it evoked a "Huh?" from him. I'm figuring it's cuz he didn't "get it". And I'm telling myself that the card recipient would definitely "get it" since she'd have a baby bump, right? But that moved me to have another go at it.


Scaled the panel with the profile down a bit and placed "her" along a stripe. Chose pastels. Added some polka dots to underscore the baby theme and a sentiment with the word "baby" in it. Didn't even show it to DH. What does he know, right?!?

BTW, my PPs are from docrafts Papermania - Spots and Stripes. I am loving the colors and patterns.

Check out what the other gals did with Baby Bump, including our special guest star this week, the awesome Darnell K. of the Playhouse. And, Shery promised to share some exciting baby news with us today too, check it out. Don't forget to leave comments, there are great prizes up for grabs as usual!

I went with beige rather than gold cuz it would have been overpowering on the simple design, but I was inspired by this lovely picture  inspiration #273 from Stampin' Royalty.


And my baby shower card is surely welcome at Addicted to CAS #61 ...


Thanks for looking. Hop along! BTW, free shipping on STAMPlorations orders over $15 until April 30th! I love deals like that, don't you?
