Dandelion Congratulations Cards

Michele asked me to make some Dandelion Designs samples for the store using the baby and wedding stamps. I was happy to make samples using these since Dandelion is one of my favorite companies.
I just love this married couple stamp but never got a chance to use it since we hardly go to weddings nowdays. I am never sure how to color wedding images since normally the bride and groom are in black and white. Instead of leaving her dress plain white, I decided to jazz it up a bit. At first, I thought of using Stickles, but chose not to do it... After all, she's getting married, not going to a club! Instead, I found some white pearly Smooch, and used it to color in her dress. You can't really tell from the photos, but her dress is a nice pearly white. I decided to use the Stickles for her veil instead. To accent her headpiece, I added a tiny pearl. To give the card some color, I added pink to the roses and a pink ribbon and finished off the card by using my corner punch on the black cardstock. I like the look it gave to the card.
My next project was to tackle the family with the baby stamp. I wish these came out when Akemi was born- I would have used it for sure! Anyway, had to make one boy and one girl card.. here's the boy version (please remember that I don't have a boy, so making boy cards are foreign to me... they always come out a little girlie!).
Here's the girl version...
Aaawwww! Aren't these stamps so cute! There are also a boy and girl stamp that coordinate with this stamp so you can stamp your whole family!
