Simple Stamping: So Many Stars

I love the versatility of the So Many Sras stamp set it perfect for Chrsitmas of course but pair it with birthday sentiment and you have so many more options. Today I’m keeping it really simple with two inks and two stamp set, well technically I’m only using one stamp from Perennial Birthday.

I chose a colour combination of Merry Merlot and Copper, mostly so I could use the Celestial Copper Delicata Ink.

I’ve added one of the Star Designer Elements to each card as these are the perfect embellishments for these cards.

I think this last card is my favourite, which is yours? You can’t beat a bit of simple stamping, especially on a Sunday.

Christening Card Duo with Fable Friends

My cousin recently had her two children Christened, one is still a baby but her little girl Ivy is two and a half so the usual Christening cards didn’t seem to fit. So I pulled out Fable Friends, Make A Difference and the retired set Inspired Events.

I wanted to personalise each card so used the phrase “Congratulations on your Christening” from Inspired Events and then used the Make A Difference stamp set to spell out the children’s names. If you didn’t manage to get hold of Inspired Events you can spell the sentiment out with Make A Difference, I’d highly recommend the Stamparatus for this as it made lining up the names very easy for me.

Baby Boy Christening Card

For the baby boy card I used a colour scheme of Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock, mostly so the sentiment would stand out against the background. To finish this card I just added the cute little rabbit from Fable Friends coloured with a blue jacket.

Baby Girl Christening Card

For the little girl card I used a colour scheme of Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingoand gave the rabbit a little pink jacket this time. I also gave the girl rabbit a little skirt by using the Petal Pink striped Organdy Ribbon and some Tear N Tape.

I’d to know what stamps sets you’d use for Christening cardsas I have a couple more to make soon.
