Rites of Passage

Springtime is often filled with celebrating rites of passage including baptisms, confirmations, first communions, etc. And since the season we call "winter" seems to have gone missing here in Wisconsin, it sort of feels like spring. So, here we go. . .

Not sure if you have any rites of passage happening in your world any time soon, but this nifty sheet of unmounted stamps is ready to help. It covers baptisms, confirmations, and first communions including invites, thanks and congrats.

The images work beautifully when stamped with India Black ink (crisp, waterproof, fast drying impressions) and outlined with a watercolor pencil. Just blend with a water brush, stand back, and admire. This sort of technique is super-handy and fast when making high volume invites or thank you notes! Save even more time by choosing a formula from the Cardmaking Idea Deck!

I love it when things are simple. And beautiful. And efficient. Then I'm sure to have a few "leftover minutes" to whip out a fabulous Pioneer Woman recipe!

Efficiently yours. . .
