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
