We are having a heat wave here. It is a whopping 20 degrees. Woohoo!! Of course the windchill brings it down just a few degrees. In all seriousness it is much better than the below zero temperatures we have been experiencing as of late. I have absolutely nothing to complain about!!! After I homeschooled my girls in my snuggly warm house, I had to time to play with my stamps!!! Yeah!
Today I have another New Release to share with you from Our Daily Bread Designs called May God Hold You. This set is a Saint Patrick's Day set but it can be used all year. I LOVE the Irish prayer. I decided to play with some more challenges today but this time I stuck to just one instead of the five on my last card. The challenge (WT202), I did, was to alter specialty design paper in some way, whether it be embossing, dry embossing , adding glitter, cutting, or etc. I did a lot of each when I paper pieced this card. When I saw the background paper in the Once Upon a Time Stack for DCWV, I knew it would be perfect for Saint Patrick's Day! It has so many shades of greens... and the sparkle in the background..... I also wanted a background for the prayer that looked like either a road or a field. There was designer paper in this stack that fit the bill perfectly, I think. The cross and frame were made from a brown designer paper in the Studio D First Blush Collection. The ring behind the cross was stamped and embossed in gold. The green designer paper for the shamrocks was also made from a paper in this same collection. After stamping the shamrocks, there was a lot of close and very small cuts to make.( lol!) The scrolls were cut out using my vintage cuttlebug die on gold glitter paper. Only the swirled embossed background paper behind the prayer and the green and very outside brown of the card was cardstock. All of the rest was designer papers pieced together. There is no coloring on the outside of this card!! The edges were distressed and sponged with chocolate chip. After sewing the card and putting everything together, I added glitter.
