Angels of Peace
Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy – and to another Friday Stamp Off with Jackie, Susan, and me. This week, our challenge is to CASE the Stampin’ Up!® Catalog. For those who are new to stamping terminology, CASE means Copy and Share Everything (or Copy and Selectively Edit). I used an image from the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. My inspiration project was the Senior Years card on page 87. Here’s my card.
I used the Angels of Peace Stamp Set from the Stampin’ Up!® July-December Mini Catalog for the image and the sentiment. Funny story – Amelia loves fairies, and when she saw my Angels of Peace, she wanted to stamp the angel. It wasn’t until later that I realized what she was seeing was a fairy. They do look a lot alike!
First, I stamped my angel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Basic White Cardstock. I colored her with Balmy Blue, Ivory, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake, and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. I love these markers! They are alcohol ink and blend very well. For example, for the angel’s skin tone, I used Dark Crumb Cake and Ivory. For her hair, I used Dark Crumb Cake again, but blended Cajun Craze with it. So fun! I die-cut the panel with the Stitched Rectangles Dies.
For the sentiment, I stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink on Night of Navy Cardstock, then embossed with White Powder (in the Basics Collection). I forgot to mark my retired punches, so I grabbed a retired one by accident to punch the sentiment.
Instead of the horizontal strip of Designer Series Paper (DSP), I punched stars from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack in the July-December Mini Catalog using the Starlit Punch.
To put the card together, I added a layer of Beauty of the Earth DSP to a Night of Navy card base, then added the stars to the card, and the die-cut image and sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Please take a few minutes to see what Susan and Jackie have created. I always look forward to being surprised by their take on our challenges!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
Buffy, this is so beautiful and your coloring is perfection. Yes, I can see where Amelia thought that it was a fairy princess
Thanks, Jackie! And, as Susan said, no halo, so of course it’s a fairy!
She makes the perfect fairy (no halo). I love the softness of your card and the sentiment is beautiful.
Thanks, Susan! And you’re right – she doesn’t have a halo, so fairy it is!
Such a pretty card, Buffy!
Thank you! 😊
