My Baby Phat...

One of the challenges was to create a card that was twisted...I don't often stamp something and think...hmmm how can I make this twisted but I think the idea is rather clever. As many of you know there is a designer who makes clothes and the line is called baby phat. I always remember thinking that maternity clothes were never too flattering. After being pregnant for what seemed like 3 years (the kids are 14 months apart) I can totally appreciate wanting to look good.

I dressed my bella up (paper piecing) and she is ready to hit the runway with her baby phat! I just love this preggers bella!

I was a little disappointed with the quality of this photo. My bella actually has a neutral skin tone not a PINK tone *lol*. I am not sure why her belly is so pink compared to her face but that is what the camera did to her! It looks fine IRL.


Paper: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, 7 Gypsies DP
Ink: Basic Black
Stamp Set(s): PregaBella (Stamping Bella), Snap Stamps (Karen Foster)
Stampin' Write Markers, Cuttlebug (Provo Craft), Circle Template (Provo Craft), Slit Punch, Hole Punch, Scalloped Rectangle Punch

Card size is 5 x5.25

I sure hope it is nice and sunny where you are! We are LOVING the sunshine here.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

This is a great card, your Bella is adorable, know what you mean about colors, I thought it might just be my computer but guess it isn't as I see flesh tone face and pink belly, maybe she was rubbing it when no one was looking.
