The twins actually turned out to be a boy and a girl but at the time I didn't know for sure. So I made little favor boxes to resemble baby bottles and then filled them with Hershey Kisses. The big question mark was for the gender and names that were revealed at the party. I used these Imagine That stamp sets to create this centerpiece.
The card that I created for the birthday celebration uses one of my favorites stamp sets called Teacup Pansies. Lisa asked us to tell why this was our favorite set. Here's what I wrote: Growing up in Ohio, my mother always grew plants. We ate fresh vegetables and enjoyed flowers all spring, summer, and fall. My mother's favorite flowers were pansies because she used to tell me they had such sweet faces, always smiling at you. Whenever I see pansies I think of her and her sweet face that I miss so much. Kris drew such beautiful pansies and with this set I have created more cards than any other stamp set that I have. I love to color it or use the gorgeous pre-colored image too.
I will be sending this card to my daughter (the mother of the twins) for Mother's Day. I colored the image with colored pencils and shaded to give the image dimension. I die cut the image with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares and inked the edges with Seedless Preserves distress ink. The base card and backing card stock is dark purple. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I die cut it with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags and used Shaded Lilac distress ink to ink the flag. The background hearts designer paper is from the Sweet Pastel Digi Paper set. The other designer paper is from the Knit Sweater Digital papers.
Happy 4th birthday to Kris and Imagine That Digital Stamps. I hope you will stop by the Creative Playground and check out the design team projects. Comment on the four birthday shares to win your favorite set of Imagine That! stamps.
