Baby Silas' Baptism

This post is three-fold: provide a sneak peek of Our Daily Bread design's January Release, "Bastism/Confirmation Verses," participate in Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge for today, and create a design for my new nephew Silas' upcoming baptism. Here's what I came up with:

Let me tell you about the new release set from Our Daily Bread first. This set contains four Bible verse suitable for baptism and confirmation. It enhances and builds upon the two other new January release sets. I really love the mix of fonts adds such a special touch!

I stamped the Ephesians verse with Versafine Sepia ink, then heat embossed it with Stampin' Up's clear embossing powder. I used a Spellbinder's Petite Oval to die cut the verse, then mounted the oval panel to a die cut Spellbinder's Rectangle cardstock.

The beautiful cardstock is Prism's Champagne Metallic Cardstock, available at Our Daily Bread designs. You can see the subtle gleam and rich appearance in the above picture. I ran the cardstock through both CuttleBug Argyle and Houndstooth folders, then diagonally cut the panels and fit them together.

Here's another picture of the little guy, along with his big sister, Lydia. Silas turns one week old today!

Be certain to check out Our Daily Bread design's new releases, January 1st! There will be a fun blog hop, three prizes available, and SUPER news! You can begin at the ODBD Blog to join in the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
