Peace on Earth- Wonderful Blessing for the HSSSC169 Sketch

Hi Again Stampers!

I wanted to create one more card this evening using the new single stamp, Wonderful Blessing along with the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSSSC169 Sketch Challenge …I love sketch challenges since they are such a great inspiration :-)   Again, if you have not visited the Hand Stamped Sentiments site yet, I highly recommend that you do so- great Design Team samples and entries as well!

To create this card:

Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Island Indigo cardstock and stamp the Wonderful Blessing image using Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.     

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circles Collection Framelits™ to cut out the embossed image and cut another circle the same size from Island Indigo cardstock.  Cut the Island Indigo circle in half horizontally to layer behind the embossed image and adhere to a Tea Lace Paper Doily.

Emboss a piece of Winter Frost DSP using the Big Shot™ with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Argyle Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder . 

Mount the Winter Frost DSP layer onto a piece of Island Indigo cardstock and lightly sand with the Sanding Block.  Add the embossed Whisper White layer and a piece of 1/8” Silver Ribbon.

Cut the banners from Winter Frost DSP  (add the banner points using the 1” Square Punch or cut by hand) and adhere to a layer of Island Indigo cardstock.

Mount onto the card per the sketch and add the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Mount the banner sentiment (retired set, Come to Bethlehem stamped with Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Whisper White and mounted onto Island Indigo cardstock) and add the Rhinestone to the star to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets: Wonderful Blessing (single stamp), Come to Bethlehem (retired)

Ink: Versamark™, Island Indigo

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Island Indigo, Winter Frost DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Pretty Print, Argyle;  Circle Collection Framelits™, Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder, Heat Tool,   Sanding Block, 1” Square Punch, 1/8” Silver Ribbon, Tea Lace Paper Doily, Rhinestone

Ah, the layers and layers and layers! They're beautiful. That's my favorite Christmas stamp this year, it just depicts the true meaning of Christmas so well. Thanks for the compliment on the HSS team, you are so sweet, and thanks for joining in the sketch challenge this week :) Erika
