Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Top 10 Winners Blog Hop - Baby - Showers of Happiness

Welcome back everyone 😊

Today I am part of the Top Ten Winners International Highlights. This hop and each months highlights are hosted by Kylie Bertucci.
You are currently here with me Kim Oliver of Australia. You will find a full list of all other participants further down this post. Just click the name after mine to continue through the hop.

As I mentioned this is a winners blog hop, so I would like to say a quick 'Thank You' to all of those wonderful people that voted for my entry last month in the June International Highlights, your vote got me here!. 

Here is a pic of my winning shaker card from Junes highlights.

You can see it in more detail HERE.

For today's Winners Blog Hop we are keeping the same theme of 'Baby' that was used for the June Highlights.
So, I thought I would use the same stamp set that got me here... 'Moon Baby'. It is such a sweet card for all babies, welcoming the new arrivals and for Baby showers too .

Here is the card I created using the stamp set mixed with the Lovely Words thinlits die set and a piece from the Delightful Daisy DSP!
I love mixing our products, that's one of the best things about Stampin' Up!

Showers of Happiness

My card base is Thick Whipser White.
I used the The Tranquil Tide DSP from the Delightful Daisy DSP layered onto Tranquil Tide card stock. The DSP reminds me of a twinkling night sky for some reason lol even though I can't say I have ever seen a green night sky 😜 I love the fading/washed out look of this paper. What do you think?
I cut the 'Lovely' word from Tranquil Tide card stock and layered a piece of vellum cut using the Sweet and Sassy framelits.
I used wink of Stella over the  piece of vellum to give loads of extra sparkle and to help keep with the twinkling night idea I can see in my minds eye.
The image was stamped onto thick whisper white, coloured using  ink and aqua painters and then fussy cut. Can you see the spots on the umbrella? I tried to give them a little dimensional look by adding a tiny spot of craft ink. I have to admit it looks better IRL. I popped the image onto mini dimensionals for a more 3D effect.
The sentiment is also from the Moon Baby stamp set and has been heat embossed in white.
I fnished this sweet card using silver stars from the metallic enamel shapes plus some small Rhinestone basic jewels.

I tried to really get a picture of how the Wink of Stella shimmered away inside the heart. I adore how it shimmers and twinkles with the light.
