Two Peas in a Pod

Howdy - MichelleO here and I just have to say… I am so in love with High Hopes Stamps new Baby Boom Release! So much cuteness I am on overload! LOL… This one really made me smile…

Two Peas in a Pod 



Now I love seeing clean and simple cards that show of the image so well. But I struggle so much to make one! I bet I sat longer working on this card than any I have made in months. I just feel like I need to keep adding… more papers… flowers… sewing… more. But with this one I wanted so bad to keep it simple.

I stamped out the adorable little pair in their pea pod and colored with Copics (colors below) Then I found a scrap pink dotted paper in my stash and matched it up with a piece of Core'dinations lime green card stock that I lightly sanded around the edges. All placed on a white card stock base. I doodled around the edge with a black memento marker.

Found some Whimsy Stamps Enamel dots to add ahead of the perfect "like two Peas in a Pod" sentiment. Sort of a little dot dot dot.. ya know?

I just couldn't stand it … it needed something else in that huge white area. And sitting on my desk I found a Whimsy Little 3D Bow die and decided that might be perfect. I cut it out with the same green card stock and sanded a bit and then put it together. Love that little bow.

Now if only I can just back away from the desk and say it is done. Why is that so hard for me?

Here are the Copic colors used -
