For a Precious Child

Wow! It is hard to believe that another two weeks have gone by and it is time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. For this time, our challenge is to create a project "Make it for a Child." This is actually the third card I created for the challenge. While the others were for a child, they just weren't the special one I wanted for our challenge. When I created this one, I knew almost instantly, this was the one! I'm sure I am not alone in this. I'm sure all of you have to feel like what you create for a challenge or an occasion is right, too!


For my card, I began by selecting this sweet image from a miniature book from Crafty Individuals. I matted the image and mounted it to a paper doily. Since the little girl is holding her favorite doll, I decide to stamp various vintage toys from Invoke Arts to compliment the main image. After trying different arrangements, I decided to group them together as though they were sitting on a toy shelf for the little girl to chose from. Simple embellishments include gifted braid, which I distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, seam binding, pearls, a heart sticker and metal winged heart from my stash, tied with a bit of Baker's Twine.


I encourage you to stop over to FSC to see all the gorgeous inspiration pieces that my sisters on the Design Team have created and I hope you will be inspired to created a project of your own to share with us. Please remember that we are a stamping challenge so we need to see stamping on your project. You will want to check FSC for all the specifics. Thanks so much for stopping by. Best wishes, Yvonne

Hi Von, looking at this instantly takes you back to another place and time...and reminds me of the movie, "Night at the Museum" where everything comes to life magically...a really beautiful card.
