Sunday was a day for celebration. Not only was it Father’s Day here in Australia but it was also the day my friend had her baby girl Baptised. I wanted to make a card for her but as with life time got away from me. So the morning of I spent 30 minutes trying to decide what to do. I didn’t have any religious stamps so I decided to use the stars from the new Charming Cascades stamp set. This stamp set is my favourite from the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book.
I used the Versamark to stamp the stars. I then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. If you are wanting to heat emboss and do not have one of those plastic embossing trays, here is a tip that I do. Fold a piece of A4 paper in half, after stamping in Versamark put the image over the folded paper. Pour an even amount of powder over the stamped image. Tip the card on its side so the excess falls off and onto the folded paper. When you have removed all excess powder you can then pour all the powder back into the container. This will make your powder last longer. The fold in the paper acts as a funnel to make pouring back into the container easier.
Here is a tip for all you crafters who never have the right wording/phrase stamp when you are looking for it. Use an alphabet stamp. This way you can spell out the words you need. This is cost effective as you don’t need to buy a stamp for that occasion you may only need once or twice. As I have no religious stamps I used an alphabet stamp set to stamp GOD BLESS.
You can use this design for all different events. Just change the sentiment on the card for a thank you or a congratulations card.
