day 4 STAMPlorations spotlight - Heaven Sent


It's day 4 of Spotlight Week - five new sets, one to be spotlighted each day this week. Ready?

Today's spotlighted set is - Heaven Sent - a baby set with unique illustrated images and sweet handwritten sentiments. I think it's so touching that Shery designed this set as a Mom-to-be.


Here is what I did with it.


My fave design of late, randomly stamped images all over the BG and a sentiment as the focal point. This time I stamped the bear in Willow, Pool and Aqua Adirondack dye inks then went over them lightly with a water brush to soften 'em up.

A heat embossed sentiment, and a bear heat embossed blue on blue and fussy cut, finished it off.


BTW, as I was trimming the zig zag edges of the sentiment banner with my scissors, I trimmed off a tiny strip. See where it went instead of into the bin? Yep, frugal is my middle name.

Check out what the other gals created, including our guest designer Darnell 's classic beauty. Hop around and leave comments, there will be prizes!

I'm playing at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is Due Date. This card can go out when that day has arrived. (I was lucky.  No waiting til the due date for me. My kids both arrived two weeks early.)

I'm also joining the Watercolor challenge at Challenge Up Your Life.



See ya tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by.
