Whimsy Stamps’ Release Week: Peace Love and Joy Clear Stamps and Blessings Word Dies

Hello, again!  I’m back with two more projects featuring new products from Whimsy Stamps, which will be available on October 7th.  I just love the dove in the Peace Love and Joy clear set:  It is so elegant!

My first project was inspired by this gorgeous card I found on Pinterest.  My church cleaned out its library last year, and I picked up an old hymnal to use for crafts.  I cut out the page with “O Come, All Ye Faithful” to use on this card.  As the paper is really thin, I mounted it to some cardstock.  The blue patterned paper is from Whimsy Stamps’ Winter Wishes paper pack.  Both were distressed with Tea Dye distress ink.

I heat-embossed the dove onto vellum with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel and fussy-cut it.  I adhered that to a die-cut scalloped oval, which I popped up onto my card.  For my sentiment, I die-cut “Noel” from gold metallic cardstock with the new Blessings Word dies.  The gorgeous snowflakes were die-cut using the retired Layered Snowflake Dies.  The ivory ones were heat-embossed with the same embossing powder as the dove.  For some sparkle, I added some Winter Wishes Enamel Dots to the centers of the snowflakes.

For my second project, I used another page from the hymnal and again mounted it to cardstock.  Before die-cutting the circle, I heat-embossed the dove from Peace Love and Joy in gold glitter embossing powder.  The branch was first stamped with green ink and then with Versamark before being heat-embossed with Holographic Embossing Powder.    The word “Peace” was die-cut with the new Blessings Word Dies: I simply used my scissors to trim off the “ful” from “Peaceful.”

To create the rosette, I cut two strips of red cardstock 3″ x 12″ and scored them at 1/2″ intervals.  After accordion-folding the strips, I adhered them together with ScorTape.  I used a hot glue gun to attach a red cardstock circle to the back.  I added some of the glitter embossing powder to the scallops of a green die-cut circle before gluing it to the front of the rosette.  The dove circle was foam-mounted on top and embellished with a poinsettia created with the Build a Poinsettia Die.
