Baby Henry!
As I typed that title I had to chuckle because my great nephew's name is Henry.  He's such a happy baby, always smiling.  This stamp set might be overlooked in the new Spring Catalog but I was drawn by the whimsical images and the fact that there are so many cute accessories, making this a stamp set for all occasions!  You can find the images for this set by CLICKING HERE.  Here are some tips to creating this card:
  1. I stamped the elephant on designer paper then cut him out. Be careful when you cut out your images, don't cut on the stamped color line or you will lose the detail to your stamp.
  2. I stamped the words repeatedly, without reinking.  
  3. Markers were used to color in the birds since they are on one stamp. Remember to "huff" or as I call it, use the "Darth Vader technique" to remoisten your stamp after they are colored in so the image is nice and moist before stamping.  Markers are a dye based ink and they dry quickly.
