Amazing Mom!

Hi there,

Glad you've stopped by. Today I'd like to share another card from the June Reveal using the Baby, Oh Baby Set 875.

I did a little paper-piecing on this project. First I stamped the image on white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored everything but the dress with Copics. She was then fussy cut.

Then I stamped the image again on the designer paper in Versamark, and before heat setting. I brushed off the Black Detail powder from the rose. 
I fussy cut the dress after heat setting and then I covered the entire dress with Versamark and heat set with Clear Detail.
Using the new Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive 200n, which comes as a fine point applicator, I attached the dress to the colored image.
After die cutting the Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Decorative Elements from white cardstock I daubed Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Peony Pink and Lilac Lavender
I ran the colored circle through my machine with the Darice Hearts Embossing Folder. This was attached to the designer paper used for the dress and then layered to a white card base.
I trimmed the girl using the decorative die cut at her legs so that she would match the bottom of the circle. I punched a small hole in front and behind her hand for the rose to go through. She was attached with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape at the legs and then her head was attached with Mounting Tape. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Mulberry. After cutting out the sentiment, I sponged a little Lulu Lavender around the edges. A white bow was tied around the circle and then the sentiment was attached with Mounting Tape. Nuvo Glitter Drops Sherbert Shimmer were added to the bottom of the sentiment and card base. The same drops were added to the pink of the headband and when this was dried I went in with Nuvo Crystal Drops Ebony Black to add the centers to the flowers. 
Here is a list of the SNS product that was used to make this card:
Stamp Set Baby, Oh Baby #857
Embossing Powders: Black Detail (EP171), Clear Detail (EP280), Mulberry (EP415),
