Baby Bump from MFT and SFYTT

Before I start with today's post, I have a prize to award to CONNIE from my newsletter drawing! Thanks for leaving a comment, Connie - please contact me so I can send out your prize!

This week I decided to create a little something for the weekly sketch contest at i {heart} 2 stamp. There's a prize up for grabs so that was incentive enough for me to play along!

Here's the sketch and my card:

Here are some details about this card. The image is a digi image from My Favorite Things, the sponsor of this week's sketch. Paper is from Jillibean and as you can see, I paper pieced the image with the same paper. Ribbon is from PTI (yellow) and Wal-Mart (blue) and the diaper pins are from Jolee.

Take a look at a close-up of the cream colored, embossed panel:

 My first attempt at creating something in a letterpress style and I love the results! This was created using an Impressabilities plate (from Spellbinders), cardstock from Papertrey Ink and my Cuttlebug. I didn't add any ink this time around as I wanted to see what kind of impression I got first but the next time I will try inking it up and seeing what the results are. If you're not familiar with letterpressing, it is basically debossing instead of embossing and is the kind of impression you would have on things like wedding invitations and such. A cool technique that I hope to play a lot more with!

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with a new challenge from Cooking it Up with Katie and watch for a new post on Ridiculous Lab later today!
