I couldn't pass up playing the Tuesday Trigger this week over at Moxie Fab World because I fell in love with the inspirational photo, check it out:
I was inspired by the colors, the patterns and the tabs of ribbon...pretty much the whole thing :) Here is what I came up with going with a baby theme:
And a close up of the wee little giraffe :)
I started off by stamping a dot pattern on basic gray and barely banana cardstock using whisper white. Then I cut varying widths of strips in soft sky, very vanilla, going gray, basic gray and barely banana. I glued the strips in a pattern on white cardstock and then used my new postage stamp punch to punch out squares from the stripe pattern I created plus the polka dot pieces. I mounted a 3x3 grid pattern onto another piece of cardstock and distressed the edges with a distresser. For the sentiment I used a stamp from Papertrey Ink and then stamped a wee giraffe, cut him out and added him to the sentiment block. Finishing touches were three ribbon tabs and a button :)
