Be Inspired Blog Hop - Favourite Celebration

25 May 2017

Welcome to the Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop. You may have just arrived here from my beautiful friend Sarah Berry from the UK. If you are starting here please make sure you hit the next button at the bottom of this post and hop all the way around. 

The theme for this hop is 'Your Favourite Celebration'. Firstly, I have to say that I think weddings and babies would be on par with each other for me. I enjoy weddings and being able to witness two people who love each other commit to a life together - plus dressing up is fun! However, this week babies win, because my lovely friend Belinda welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world yesterday. Celebrating the birth of a new baby is always special. I love their little fingers and toes and who can resist the sweet smell of a newborn baby - it's simply heaven!
This card was inspired by a card my lovely friend and Artisan Team Member created a couple of months ago. Holly Stene from Holly's Hobbies made the cutest baby card using the Moon Baby stamp set and I wanted to put my spin on it.  Thanks for the inspiration Holly!

Firstly I cut the circle using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamped the moon baby stamp with Archival Black Ink with the star coming off a little from the bottom. I stamped the image again into Shimmery White and watercoloured with the Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter. I then used a my paper snips and cut out the baby and moon, removing the bow and star and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. I the cut  out the star and glued it with small amount of Multipurpose Tombow Glue. The clouds are from the Up and Away Thinlits Dies and the sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments Stamp Set.

Next up for you to 'Be Inspired' by is my talented friend Allison Okamitsu from the Canada. I wonder what her favourite celebration will be? The celebration of our friendship? Hahaha (I celebrate that everyday!)
