Stamping Diversity Celebrates Ramadan

Stamping Diversity Bloggers are sharing cards for Ramadan today. I chose to focus on Eid for my card.

Eid al-Fitr, also known as the “Holiday of Breaking the Fast,” is one of the two official holidays celebrated within Islam. It holds immense significance for Muslims worldwide as it marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting period of Ramadan. This joyous occasion is observed under various names in different languages and countries across the globe. One of its alternative names is “Lesser Eid.”

The festivities of Eid al-Fitr commence at sunset on the night of the first sighting of the crescent moon.

To capture the essence of this special day, I’ve adorned my card with a moon and a sprinkling of stars. Sometimes, simplicity speaks volumes, and this card beautifully captures the spirit of the occasion. 

I opted for a soothing blue color palette and infused a hint of gold to add vibrancy. The fun banner adds a touch of whimsey.

Celebrating diversity is a beautiful thread that binds us together. Crafting cards allows me to express this joy, and I’m delighted to share it with you!

New Years Celebrations by the Stamping Diversity Team

My blog is called Celebrate the Journey because my husband and I are passionate about traveling. We always have a trip planned and sometimes more than one trip at a time. One of our dream destinations is Thailand. I was curious about how they celebrate the New Year in Thailand. 

Songkran is the name of the Thailand New Year celebration.  Songkran falls on April 13 every year, but the holiday period lasts from 14 to 15 April. They also observe the January New Year, but the official holiday is in April. Songkran comes from a Sanskrit word meaning ‘to move’ or ‘movement’. It refers to the movement of the sun from one position to another in the zodiac. Water is a key element of the Songkran Festival. It symbolizes cleansing, renewal, and blessings. People splash water on each other, on statues of Buddha, and on animals. Other symbols of Songkran are exotic flowers, elephants, sunshine, beach scenes, and lots of playful fun.

I wanted to create a card that captures the spirit of Songkran. After looking through my stamp sets and dies I came up with this happy, colorful card. Itis so cool how we can use our stamps to celebrate different cultures and traditions. I hope this card is a good tribute to this wonderful holiday.

I’m sure the other bloggers have some interesting insights on other New Year celebrations. #StampingDiversity

#StampingDiversity Hanukkah Blog Hop

The Stamping Diversity Team aims to share our paper creations and educate you about different cultures and traditions. For our first hop, we chose to focus on Hanukkah and its eight gifts. I did some research online and learned that giving gifts for Hanukkah is a relatively new practice. Some sources say it started as a way to make Jewish children feel less left out during Christmas, while others say it was a way to spread joy and happiness.

In the past, Jewish children received gelt, which is money or chocolate coins, to give to their teachers or to charity. The idea was to teach them the value of money and the importance of doing good deeds. Nowadays, parents use these gifts as a way to celebrate and have fun.

I made four small gift holders that can hold various items, such as money, gift cards, or candy. I hope these inspire you to create your own gift presentations.

Introducing the #StampingDiversity Design Team

I am pleased to share that I am now a member of a new Design Team. The #StampingDiversity DesignTeam is group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world who love sharing projects with you. This team has a specific focus to share and educate on occasions, celebrations, and observances that may not get the representation on store shelves or catalog pages that they deserve.

A possible way to describe “diversity” is to say that it is the act or state of embracing or involving people who have various social and ethnic identities and who belong to different genders, sexual orientations, and so on. This is how the Oxford English Dictionary defines it.

Why is diversity important?

By embracing diversity, we can enrich our knowledge and skills from various backgrounds and viewpoints. This helps us to become better human beings.

My reason for sharing diversity.

I spent my youth as a military child. We lived all over the world. Because of this I have always enjoyed learning about other cultures and countries. Can you tell why my blog is called Celebrate the Journey?? In addition, my husband and I love to travel.  We have visited almost every country in the UK and Europe. Now we need to add some of the other regions we have missed!


I hope you will join us on our new adventure!
