All in the Family

Images © 1990-2008 Stampin' Up!®

I made this card using the All in the Family set (pg 61), I love this set, it's so versatile! For this card I stamped the legs, dress, head and arms on the Whisper White cardstock using the Stamp-a-ma-jig (pg 149). The Stamp-a-ma-jig allows you to stamp your image exactly where you want it, no guess work (an absolute must if you want your family's heads to be connected to their bodies)! I then also stamped the dress image onto some of the Petals and Paisleys designer series paper (pg 134) and cut it out to create a pretty patterned dress (I adhered this to the Whisper White cardstock over the first stamped dress image using SNAIL adhesive™). I used my Blender Pens and Stampin' Pastels to colour the image (Blush Blossom for the cheeks of course!) and created some ground with a little bit of Going Gray. Here's a closer look;

(I do apologise for the blurry picture!) I mounted this onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I used another piece of the Petals and Paisleys Designer Series Paper on Pretty in Pink cardstock and adhered the girl image onto that. I stamped the greeting onto Whisper White cardstock with Tempting Turquoise ink (using a stamp from the Greetings Galore set, pg 56) and mounted this onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock before adhering to the card. The final touch is some Tempting Turquoise ribbon. Voila! A cute birthday card!

Also check out the coordinating sets, Family Favourites and Family Phrases (pg 61)! The possibilities are endless!!!

I LOVE this set too! You've done a great job with the paper piecing, makes a simple image something extra cute. Tracey
