Angels Of Peace Merely Designed

There’s one thing concerning the Angels of Peace Stamp Set that retains me going again for extra. The 2 angels are easy line drawings that work nicely colored or simply left as they’re. Plus the emotions are so fairly, and a few of them can be utilized exterior of the Christmas season too. Thus far I’ve discovered that creating initiatives utilizing the Angels of Peace Stamp Set has been a fast course of. This was a an essential consideration throughout my latest World Card Making Day “24 playing cards in 24 hours” problem. Right here’s the challenge I ended up making that day…

Having chosen my stamp set I made a decision to make use of the “Peace on earth Goodwill towards males” sentiment. So then I went searching for an acceptable background I might use on the challenge. The Peaceable Place 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Sequence Paper (DSP) appeared an applicable place to begin and I wasn’t dissatisfied. One design stood out, small whereas and silver foiled snowflakes towards a gray background. Watching snow falling is at all times a peaceable expertise and the absence of a blue ‘sky’ was a welcome change.

I started by slicing a 2-1/4″ x 6″ piece of the DSP. Then with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I connected it to the flap of a Primary White Medium Envelope. Trimming the surplus paper with my Paper Snips was a easy process, utilizing the sting of the flap as a information.

Going again to the DSP I subsequent reduce a 1/2″ x 5-1/4″ strip. Utilizing liquid glue I mounted this piece down the right-hand fringe of a 4″ x 5-1/4″ layer of Primary White Card. Alongside the left fringe of the DSP I then added a 1/8″ x 5-1/4″ strip of Primary Grey Card. This might coordinate with the entrance of my completed card. Lastly I mounted the assembled layer inside a card base I’d produced from Thick Primary White Card.

I nonetheless had the entrance of the cardboard to do and began that by slicing one final piece of DSP at 2″ x 5-1/2″. Utilizing liquid glue I mounted it onto a 2-1/8″ x 5-1/2″ layer of Primary Grey Card, lining up the left edges of the 2 items. Then I mounted the layers onto the left facet of the cardboard base utilizing liquid glue as soon as once more.


My authentic thought was to make use of each angels from the stamp set on my card and I began with the bigger angel picture. To maintain the picture smooth I stamped it onto some Shimmery White Card utilizing Primary Grey ink as an alternative of a harsher black. Then I started to color the angel utilizing Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.

For her gown I wished one thing fairly refined and selected Gentle Sea Foam. I used the darker shade to attract alongside the folds, after which went over the entire gown with the lighter one. Her hair was a mixture of sunshine and darkish Crumb Cake in random squiggles. For her face I went with Ivory after which I completed off by colouring the fowl with gentle Poppy Parade.

With that performed, I used Paper Snips to chop out the finished picture. This was really fairly a fast and straightforward course of.

It was solely as I started to consider how I’d place this angel on the cardboard that I realised I didn’t need to add a second one in spite of everything. As an alternative I used liquid glue to repair her within the centre of the cardboard in the direction of the underside. Then as soon as she was in place I ‘painted’ her wings utilizing a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

All I wanted now was to fastidiously add my sentiment within the prime proper nook utilizing Primary Grey ink and my challenge was full.

Once I began I wished to create a card that felt peaceable and I’m very proud of the way it turned out. As I take a look at the cardboard I’ve different concepts popping into my head. There’s undoubtedly extra to come back from this set.
