Warm, Golden Wishes for Featured Stamper!
Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I would like to share a fun and easy card which I made for two challenges. This week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast is Anne Harada aka Itsapassion.....yay, Anne! What a treat it was to cruise through every page of her gallery....wow, so many gorgeous cards and projects to choose from. When I came across this white and gold beauty, it reminded me of the Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread designs (metallics with a twist), so I decided to combine the two challenges together.
P.S. When you have a moment, please say a little prayer for Anne's hubby....he was taken to the ER on Friday for some heart issues and I haven't heard from Anne with an update as of yet. Please also say a prayer for Cindy Coutt's step-mom, who is in the last stages of pancreatic cancer. Thank you!
For my card, I grabbed some gold mirror paper, which I bought from the Our Daily Bread designs show booth earlier this year, to use with Spellbinders Ironworks Motifs and Ironworks Accents die sets. The background was embossed with a Spellbinders Floral and Stone Impressabilities metal template, then used the template as a stencil to sponge around with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink. The die-cut pieces were popped up with foam tape and pearls were added as an accent. The sentiment panel was cut out with Spellbinders Lacey Circles, sponged with Antique Linen. Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner, I was able to stamp one word at a time inside the circle using the sentiment from the Our Daily Bread designs set, 'Warm Wishes'.
