Gentle Peace

It's the newest photopolymer stamp set from Stampin' Up!® and I love it!  My order came today and it was like Christmas in my house although that's how I always feel when I get my orders.  Gentle Peace is a wonderful image of Mary, Joseph and Jesus, just the kind of image I love for Christmas.  It's a reminder of why we celebrate the season.

The image was stamped on Vellum using VersaMark, then embossed with Silver Stampin' Up!® Embossing Powder.  I turned it over and colored the star and the baby Jesus with Stampin' Write Markers.  After it was colored, I adhered it to a pieced of Sahara Sand card stock and popped it up with dimensionals onto the Marina Mist card stock that I'd embossed with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder.

Stamp Set:  Gentle Peace; Ink:  Soft Suede; Stampin' Write Markers:  Crushed Curry, Marine Mist, Blush Blossom (retired); Card Stock:  Soft Suede, Marina Mist, Sahara Sand, Vellum; Accessories & Tools:  Lucky Stars Embossing Folder, Silver Stampin' Embossing Powder, SNAIL Adhesive, Transparent Adhesive (Glue Dots), Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Stampin' Trimmer, Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy

Nicholas Chance is turning 8!

Tomorrow is Nic's birthday but I wanted to share the card I made for him today since each Sunday is dedicated to the Sunday Christmas Card Challenges.  Some time back , Nic discovered Dr. Who and instantly became a fan.  From what I understand Mom is making one of her great cakes and I'm sure it will have a Dr. Who theme.  Most of the product I used in his birthday card is retired but given he is turning eight, the card may not last long.  :-)  I've been invited over after church for supper and the traditional cake and ice cream celebration.  Apparently he is going to be totally blown away by Mom and Dad's gift and I can't wait to see his reaction!

Stamp Set:  Delightful Dozen (retired), Feeling Sentimental (retired); Inks:  Midnight Muse (retired), Whisper White Craft; Card Stock:  Basic Black, Gold Foil Sheets, Not Quite Navy (retired) , Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Confetti Stars Punch, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, White Opaque Pen, Dimensionals, Paper Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Trimmer

It's getting late so I think I'm going to wrap this one up and get some sleep.  It's a busy day tomorrow as I'm needing to get a set of swap cards done as well as designing and making my projects for the next Watercooler Stamping Blog Hop which starts Thursday at 8:00 p.m. Central time.  Be sure to stop back and take a tour.
