Feature Friday - Welcome Little One

Sandra Boone

Hi everyone! Welcome back to another Feature Friday. Candice here and today I'll be showcasing the Welcome Little One stamp set!


This stamp set is adorable and would be perfect for Mother's Day cards! Admittedly, I used a similar card design (using the mermaid from Mermaid at Heart) for one of our Saturday challenges a little while ago. I only shared it over on my Instagram, but figured since everyone seemed to love it so much that it may be worth creating a blog post for!

I sometimes get overwhelmed by the many stamps within each set and feel like I have to use all of them on one card, but I wanted to show you that you can create beautiful and simple cards with only one (or a couple) stamps--especially with TRS stamps, they're the perfect size for a design like this!

I started by stamping the mermaid on a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 inch white cardstock in black amalgam ink. I also stamped her on a Post-it note and fussy cut to create a mask. After adhering the mask onto my panel, I used a blending brush and a very light hand to blend a halo of distress ink (I used Mermaid Lagoon) around her. Next I peeled off the mask (my favorite part!) and Copic colored the mermaid and her little baby! I finished it off by white heat embossing the "You are so loved" sentiment on a black cardstock banner, and adding some little sequins.

I always struggle with coloring humans/skin so thought I'd share my color combos in case they help anyone:


  • Skin--E29, E27, E23
  • Hair--N8, N6, N4
  • Tail--BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11
  • Top--V17, V15, V12
  • Arm decoration/baby's diaper--B39, B37, B34
  • Hair accessories--BG 18, BG15, BG13 | B05 | E42, E40 | V17, V15, V12
  • Baby--E27, E23, E21


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a lovely weekend!

Happy crafting!
