peace, love & joy

Hello there!  Popping in with a card that I will be sharing over at the Paper Players challenge, the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and the Visions of Sugarplums challenge.   Last year I purchased the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Stained Glass Greetings stamp set.  At the time it came out there weren't matching dies, but about a month later they released the matching dies.   Sadly I wasn't able to get them at the time, but finally this year I did... yay!  I used that stamp set and the dies along with the SSS Frozen Fractals set to make my card.  I stamped all the snowflakes on white cardstock with VersaMark watermark ink, applied clear embossing powder and heat set.   I then inked up the piece with distress oxide ink in blueprint sketch bluffing off the excess.  The piece was then splattered with white acrylic paint mixed with water and when dry die cut with a rectangle die. The words were stamped on vellum with VersaMark, embossed in white and then die cut with the matching dies.  I adhered the words and ampersand by rolling up medium sized glue dots and placing them behind the words where there is embossing.  The little sentiments were stamped using VersaFine CLAIR in Nocturne on a strip of paper, trimmed down and adhered.  The finished piece was adhered to a white cardstock base.   This has also been entered in the SSS flickr challenge #111.




Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  MFT white, PTI vellum; Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp; Dies:  Simon Says Stamp and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  VersaFine CLAIR, VersaMark watermark; Ranger distress oxide; white acrylic paint

Rosemary... absolutely love the vellum sentiment! So perfectly embossed! The letters themselves are so engaging and so reminiscent of the stained glass. Love the effect you were going after and achieved. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players.
