It's time to celebrate!!

And what better way to do it than to make beautiful things to commemorate it. The Sarah Hurley Designs challenge is 4 years old this month and we are hosting a Celebration Themed Challenge.

I decided to make a baby card for a complete change! I am loving the different styles of journalling cards Sarah has over at the Silhouette Store and used the Baby Journalling Card as the main focus of the card. I stamped some tiny clusters of stars from the Doodle Doll Stamps and stamped them round the card with VersaMark ink then clear embossed them. I distressed the card using Worn Lipstick and Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. I cut an extra journalling card, and removed the baby word, distressed it with Black Soot DI and placed it on the chevrons. I popped the journalling card onto some 3D foam to give the card some dimension.

I used the Chevron Background Stamp, which I inked with lilac and pink pearlescent Brilliance inks, then covered with clear embossing powders and heat sealed it. Such a great look for not an awful lot of work. I really love inking this stamp up with different colours, it always looks great for a large background.


Ingredients
Brilliance Inks
Distress Inks
Clear Embossing Powder

  3. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-diary milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a few days.


    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:
