Welcome Cerys

Welcome Cerys

Although this stamped image is really the Madonna and Child intended mainly for Christmas Cards, I just love it for new baby cards and have used it several times this way.

For this, it was stamped onto white card, run through an embossing folder after being cut out with a Nestie oval and then coloured with ProMarkers. I recently purchased the alphabet dies and, being a Celtic-type font (uncial),  it is perfect for a Celtic-type name such as Cerys!

I didn’t take step-by-step photos of this commissioned one I’m afraid but I did for the one which I sent to the family. If you click on the photos you’ll get the comments showing :).

The decorative layer is two Nestie Eyelet Squares

These are the ink pads I chose for the card

Inks

I stamped the letters using the multi-coloured ink onto a tall, white card

Lettering

Masked the letters and chose which blocks should go on top of each

Masking

Stamped with the pink ink over the top of the letter masks, had to put the square masks on when stamping the subsequent blocks

Stamped Blocks

All masks removed - think it's a bit wishy-washy!

Added some colour

Hard to see but I embossed (using a brass stencil and ball tool) baby hands and feet
