Hello! It’s Thursday and you know that means it is time for a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. It is a very pretty color challenge this week!
ANGELS OF PEACE
At a recent stamping retreat, I borrowed a friend’s Angel of Peace stamp set and created a few different designs with it. This is one of my favorites!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Blushing Bride cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock was added on top.
- A 3 x 5-1/4 piece of snowflake Whimsy & Wonder Designer Paper was added to the right side.
- The coordinating 1-1/4 x 4 piece of mint Whimsy & Wonder DSP was added across the center.
- The small Angel of Peace was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock and colored with the Light Mint Macaron, Light Polished Pink, Bronze, Ivory Stampin’ Blends. The wings were watercolored with the Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. It was cut with the Seasonal Labels Dies.
- Some Simply Elegant Silver Trim was wrapped in circles, then added to the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The angel label was added on top with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Tis the Season greeting from Christmas to Remember stamp set was stamped with Polished Pink Ink on Basic White cardstock and hand-cut,, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- A trio of pink In Color Jewels were added to the background.
So soft and pretty…I love this card! Go check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary!
Our popular TECHNIQUES Collection is back with SIX new techniques for cards! We are featuring the upcoming BLESSINGS OF HOME STAMP SET and FLOWERS OF HOME DIES (available for demos to preorder now and customers on January 3) along with the techniques. These flower images are so pretty to color or leave monochromatic for a vintage look! We've also paired the Bundle with the HEART & HOME DESIGNER PAPER on our SIX technique card tutorials. See more details here!
Don't you LOVE a great tree set? We do! In this bundle, use the trees singly or build an entire forest! They aren't just for Christmas cards, this bundle can be used year-around to build a woodsy scene. For our Collection, we've paired Stampin' Up!'s WHIMSICAL TREES STAMP SET and CHRISTMAS TREE DIES with the WHIMSY & WONDER DESIGNER PAPER to create three cards (one a special fold card) and a fabulous 3D project you can't wait to use...just in time for the holidays!
