A hearty congratulations to my friend and downline Linda on the birth of her twin grandsons!  I knew just the stamp I wanted to use for this special card.

Wow!  This stamp is so easy to use and creates such realistic images.  It uses 3-step stamping but Stampin' Up! has made it easy for us by labeling the stamps with a 1 or a 2 or a 3.  In addition, each stamp has an arrow tab so lining the stamp up with the previous image is a snap.  Start with your lightest color first followed by progressively darker inks.  This can be accomplished with different inks or by stamping off.

These bears looks so real that I just want to squeeze them!  And, what a fun way to welcome twin boys.  Of course the inside of the card needed to to let Linda know how excited we are for her family.
