Rhi’s Baby Blessing Favors

Rhiannon’s Baby Blessing is tomorrow! I am so excited. Gene and I worked very hard (along with our fabulous minister) on her ceremony, invitations and favors. Those that are attending are certainly in for a magical celebration in honor of my baby girl.

So I mentioned her favors. I have to say, they caused me a great deal of stress. I knew that I wanted to create favors similar to the ones I made for Phoenix’s Blessing… so that part was easy. I had originally used pressed wood disks (intended to be a mini scrapbook) by Kaiser. I had edged the disks with a paint pen, and Mod Podged patterned paper on both sides. Then, I glued on a photo of Nix on one side then I stamped this awesome image of a dragon and phoenix on the other. They were super cool.

For Rhi, I started off the same way… everything was fine until I got to the stamped image on the other side. What could I use for her? Her name is too long to spell out, even if I used a tiny font, because then it just looked super small with a lot of leftover space. I tried using a Heidi Swapp stamp that said “Baby” and then adding “Rhi” to it, but that looked bad… what kind of image could I use? Rhiannon is the Goddes of inspiration and the moon. So a moon then? Nah… I’m using such cute photos, a moon wouldn’t work. She is also said to have riden a horse that no one could catch up to. A horse then? I don’t have any horse stamps… Go fig!

So, Gene came up with a great idea! Use her feet. They turned out to be too big so we used her hand instead. After a 10-15 minute traumatizing experience for the 3 of us (turns out Rhainnon is NOT a fan of having her hand painted!), we finished the disks shy the ribbon to hang them with. Here is the (almost) finished favor:

It was fun to pick out the photos and the paper. I love all of her HUGE smiles and the bright, happy paper.

The color is a little off in the photos… but you get the idea. Our guests will love them I’m sure, as we still see the favors I made of Phoenix hanging in our families' homes.

Wish us luck for tomorrow! I hope it is a beautiful day and that Rhiannon has a beautiful Blessing Ceremony!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
