Masking Paper Christening Card

Masking Paper Christening Card

Today I attended the combined christening and first birthday party for my great niece, Tilly Anne, the first child in the generation under my children.

My boys have 15 cousins in total and Tilly is the daughter of their oldest cousin – it feels so bizzare to have a one-year-old great niece when my two youngest nieces are only 6 and 3!

I don’t have any stamps or sentiments that are specifically for christening or baptism so I decided to use masking paper to make a cross that I could stamp around.

I used the Lovely You stamp set to stamp around my cross, using mainly soft colours: So Saffron, Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Sahara Sand, Balmy Blue and Soft Succulent.

After I gently removed the masking paper to reveal the cross, I mounted the image onto a layer of gold foil and heat embossed the “Congratulations” sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set.

Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins add a touch of dimension and sparkle.

To purchase any of the products featured in today’s post, go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store.

I’ll be back tomorrow night with the Heart of Christmas blog hop and then on Wednesday night with AWH Colour Creations team where we will be showcasing Crushed Curry.

In the meantime, wherever you are in the world, stay safe, stay calm…and keep on crafting xxx

Sneak Peek of 2020-21 Annual Catalogue Products – Lovely You Bundle

Sneak Peek of 2020-21 Annual Catalogue Products – Lovely You Bundle

I’m so excited to give you a sneak peek today of some new products that will be available to purchase from 3rd June: the Lovely You Bundle (Lovely You stamp set and Lovely Labels Pick a Punch), the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP and five brand new 2020-22 In Colours.

Let’s take a closer look at these in colours. I must admit my early favourite is Misty Moonlight – it’s a softer version of Night of Navy and it looks stunning with Seaside Spray

Each of my five cards feature one of the new in colours, co-ordinated matching DSP and topped with a layered sentiment punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, which is in a bundle with the Lovely Labels stamp set.

This amazing new punch that lets you punch out 6 different styles of punch in three different widths. I used it on the Mother’s Day card I shared with you here to create a double layered mount.

Because this punch gives you the option of 2 different scalloped ends each in 3 different widths and unlimited lengths you can create perfect layered sentiments for so many of our different punches.

For card one I punched out the sentiment in Misty Moonlight at 1 inch wide and layered it onto white card stock punched out with the Timeless label punch (made longer by threading the card stock in one end at a time).

The next colour is Bumblebee, with the white card stock punched out at 1 inch wide and the top layer in Bumblebee punched out with the different end of the punch at 3/4 of an inch. Because it punches only one end of the card stock at a time I could make it long enough to fit this sentiment.

Isn’t Just Jude just gorgeous! For this tiny sentiment I used the narrowest width strip of card stock (1/2 inch) in Just Jade layered on top of the 3/4 inch width in Whisper White.

Magenta Madness is very bright but it teams so well with Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride. Here I’ve used the 3/4 inch and the 1 inch widths in the two different designs for the “just because” sentiment.

Cinnamon Cider is last but definitely not least and like the Magenta Madness card I’ve used the 3/4 inch and the 1 inch widths to punch and layer my sentiment.

The beautiful DSP I’ve used on all my cards is called Flowers For Every Season and it features all the new in colours. There are 24 different patterns in this 6×6 pack of DSP!

Tomorrow I will be featuring another stamp set that is retiring from the 2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue, but in the meantime you can view all the retiring products in my online shop.
