I can even get those boys to wear matching pajamas still. I have to restrain myself from showering them with hugs and kisses when this happens. Stinkin' adorable. Even when one is beating on the other with a stick while on a camping trip. Brothers!
Let me tell you, the kids love pajamas, too. They love whatever new pairs they have. When I was illustrating this set back in the beginning of October, I was printing out proof sheets to make sure it was "colorable". Just one proof sheet mind you. As I sat at the kitchen counter with my Copics, just minding my own business on a Sunday morning, I was mobbed by children who wanted to see what I was doing. And then they wanted coloring sheets of their own. I printed a dozen and all three sat and colored pajamas happily for a hour. That told me something loud and clear. Kids love this stamp set. It speaks to them and represents something sweet and wonderful about their daily life.
Two cards for you today, a shortie and a long pajama set for a boy and a girl. These are mostly flat panel cards with the exception of the slippers and the softie (yes...two softies are in the kit...imagine making a card to go with a softie!), which are up on foam tape for just a touch of dimension. I've made sure I've hidden these cards over the last few days so they'll be a surprise on the kids' pillows tonight.
Jammies usually have a theme. And in creating this set, I wanted to make sure there were as many creative options as possible. So the shirts are sized to fit all the Tiny Treat icon stamps. Imagine the fun you can have with that! With a little selective inking, you can even add the corresponding phrase like I did here. Just like real jammies. Any kid would love this.
A quick note on the slippers. They come plain. But I was able to add the small star stamp that's included in the set to make them match the shortie bottoms. Sweet.
More tomorrow. I'm going to have an enjoyable day up ahead of coloring away. Can't wait to share. Sweet Dreams and all the other new May Papertrey Ink products will be available on May 15th at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com. More inspiration linked through Nichole's blog today.
