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.
