When my daughter asked me to make a Christening card for her friend, I used the My Special Day stamp set from Stampin’ Up! …
I love the clean and simple look of the card. My stamp-a-majig from Stampin’ Up made it so easy to line up the image and sentiment – could not have done without it!

My lovely friend, Sarah, asked me to make some First Holy Communion cards for her niece.
I had lots of fun playing with textures with the lattice embossing folder from Stampin Up. I inked up the folder with my brayer before running it through the Big Shot to highlight the cross shapes and make it look more like a stained glass window.
I also did some heat embossing with clear powder embossing powder.
I used the scallop trim border and corner punches to create a cross shape and added rolled roses for embellishment.
The sentiments on both cards were computer generated.

My friend, Clare, asked me to make a personalised Christening card for baby James, who is being Christened on Sunday. This is what I came up with…
Hope you like it Clare, and that you and the family have a lovely time on Sunday.
Stampin’ Up supplies used:
cardstock: whisper white, bashful blue; stamp sets: bundle of love, just perfect alphabet, in the stars (retired); inks: bashful blue, soft suede; punches: ½” circle, word window, modern label; accessories: bashful blue stitched grosgrain ribbon (retired), gold brads, white gel pen, blender pen, snail adhesive, stampin’ dimensionals, patterned paper from my stash.
To make the blue “scalloped” edge to the white oval, I punched out circles in bashful blue using the ½” circle punch, and then adhered them to the back of the oval using snail adhesive. I had to jiggle them around a bit so they fit the shape, but I managed it …just about!

My friend asked me to make a personalised Christening card for a brother and sister, but as they are a couple of years apart age-wise I didn’t want to use images that were specifically for babies. Here’s the step card I came up with:
