Combining Stamping & Children’s Artwork

If you are a parent, you likely have a good bit of children’s artwork. We certainly do at our house. When opportunities arise I like to use the artwork for gift giving. Today is our sitter’s birthday. For the card from our daughters, I decided to combine a painting that my 3 year old did along with a little but of stamping and some ribbon. Here is the card:

The ribbon is 1/8″ taffeta in marina mist (119257) and I mounted my daughter’s artwork on some marina mist card stock (119682). The card base is whisper white card stock (100730) and my gumball green stampin’ write marker from the 2012-2014 in color collection (126856) was used to ink the stamp. The stamp is part of the Happy You set (122800 wood / 122802 clear) — this set is exclusively available when you shop online and are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards or when you host a live workshop.

Do you find ways to use your children’s artwork? I would love to hear about them!

Enjoy!

PS: the remainder of my daughter’s painting is being saved for future cards or it may go on the front of a gift bag as it is perfectly sized for that purpose!
