One of my stamping friends ordered this stamp set, and was looking for ideas for using it. This is one that I came up with:
Stamp: A Wish for Peace
Cardstock: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist
Ink: Marina Mist, VersaMark
Accessories: White Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Tinsel Trim, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Perfect Polka-Dots Embossing Folder, Big Shot Die-Cut Machine
And the other one:
Stamp: A Wish for Peace
Cardstock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Marina Mist
Ink: Night of Navy, Marina Mist, So Saffron marker
Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Basic Rhinestones, Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Smooch Pearlized Top Coat (on church steeple), Frost White Shimmer Paint (used with Aqua Painter for snow in foreground), Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (sponged lightly over all), sponges
Camera settings are still in the experimental stage, but getting better, I think. Thanks for stopping by today!
Your cards are lovely and makes me want to enjoy the winter months a lot more! Thanks for sharing.
Your card is exquisite! I love this one. This would be the card that I mailed this year! It really speaks peace to me.
Bee-utiful!! Makes me sad to think of my supplies all boxed up while we're heading into the Christmas season! I will just drool over yours.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! How did you do the background for the 2nd card? Is that a brayer? Just love it!!ReplyDelete
Jamie, the background was sponged on with Marina Mist and Night of Navy (after masking the image). Then Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint was lightly sponged all over the whole thing.ReplyDelete
Cindy these cards are gorgeous and I especially love the second one. Stunningly beautiful!ReplyDelete
These are both amazing -- the second card is a great example of how effective sponging is when done right! Well done!ReplyDelete
These are absolutely spectacular! I love the idea of weaving the tinsel through the punched border!ReplyDelete
Wow! Just lovely!ReplyDelete
Beautiful...elegant and amazing!ReplyDelete
WOW Cindy! Beautiful cards!!!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh they are so pretty! Love the snow effect on the 2nd one. Must must give it a try!ReplyDelete
Magnificent cards! Especially the sponged one. But I really like how you used the tinsel on the first one too!ReplyDelete
