It's been a while since I posted a ton of baby cards that I had to make for several co-workers but now I'm in it again. This time, one of my coworkers recently had twin boys.
I stamped the Baby Steps image once in baja breeze, then coloured only the baby elephant with my markers and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up and stamp it just behind the previously stamped baby elephant. Such an easy way to make a stamp set more versatile and great for twins! I also stamped scrap versions of the elephants so I could cut out the ears and adhere them with dimensionals.

When I stamped the images, I didn't colour in the congratulations sentiment on the stamp so that it wouldn't appear directly below them. I later coloured the sentiment in with my chocolate chip marker and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment with the bottom center of the card.

As you can tell, I love to use my stamp-a-ma-jig! It is definitely a product I would recommend to any stamper. I use it on almost every card I make!

That is a really cute card. Ive had a stamp-a-ma-jig for awhile and haven't known how to use it. I'm gonna have to dust it off and try it out. TFS.

I just can't stop looking at (and making) baby cards ... maybe because my very first grandbaby is due in only two weeks .. do ya think?

This is a brilliant idea, Allison ... I love seeing new ways to use stamps!
