Our friends recently had an adorable little girl and we were invited to her baptism this weekend. This was the perfect opportunity to play with my new Color Cross bundle!! The base of the card is bubble gum card stock layered with buttercream card stock and dark roast card stock that was stamped with the Vintage Notes stamp in buttercream ink. I wanted a subtle, almost splotchy, background so I inked the Vintage Notes stamp very randomly and not completely. I stamped the cross on buttercream card stock in dark roast ink and then stamped randomly over the cross with my Ink Splat stamp and bubble gum ink - Richard did this on his Leadership Retreat swap and I loved the idea! I cut the cross using the coordinating die and my RG Amaze machine. I hand cut the buttercream card stock banner for the sentiment (also from the Color Cross stamp set) and stamped it in dark roast ink with an overlay of Ink Splat in bubble gum ink. I tied a bow using our new bubble gum checks satin ribbon around the dark roast card stock layer and then used my silver journey thread to tie a bow around the bubble gum bow. I popped the cross and sentiment up using journey foam squares and embellished by adding pearls, rhinestones, special celebrations sequins and journey sparkle cuts adhered with journey glaze.

I have been stamping for 14 years and am thrilled to be one of the first Fun Stampers Journey Coaches in Ohio. It was my honor to serve on the 2016-2017 Leadership Team for Fun Stamper's Journey.
