Keep the Faith

Hi Everyone!!  I was able to make some time to play in my stamp room and have a couple of cards to share from weekend Challenges over on SCS.  One features this month's ODBD Release Stamp - Sheltering Angel, and the other features the new Custom Angel Wings die.

This first one is my favorite of the two - celebrating today's Featured Stamper on SCS (links and details are further down in the post).  To make this one I started by inking up the inside of an embossing folder - using Coastal Cabana and Tempting Turquoise.  Next I die cut and assembled the Lilly flowers and Wing/tag elements, stippled the flower, then adhered/popped everything onto the card base.

This first photo shows the detailing on the Angel Wings and Tag - with the little key and cross paper charms.

Here are a couple more pictures showing the front and side views:

This is the first time I've used these SB Lilly dies - and oh my goodness are they FUN and EASY!! Once they were assembled I stippled some color and added a little glitter!!

My next project is for yesterday's Inspiration Challenge also on SCS.  I am such a fan of David Bromstad's work when I saw his art featured on this website I couldn't help myself!!  And honestly there was no help for me in trying to re-create his beautiful design - but hey, I tried anyway LOL!!! 

To make this card I cut a square piece of card stock, then using an SB Peony Flower die as a guide I started sponging greens and grays in a sort-of floral pattern.  I kept shifting the die in order to get the artsy/imperfect look similar to the flower in the painting.

The Flower Within CASE

Once that was done I randomly stamped the Sheltering Angel Irish Blessing.  Next I added some definition using copics and glitter to 'glitz' it up a bit.  There's a bit of green glitter on the flower center, Black glitter on the right edge and top corner, and little bits of clear glitter in different areas around.  Lastly I added crystal effects to make the white/gray areas more interesting.

Oh, Audrey, these are both fabulous! I love the vibrant color and texture of the first one...and the dies all work so beautifully together! And your second card is fabulous and so creative with how you sponged using the peony die and then added the sentiment repeatedly! Gorgeous, sweet friend! Hugs!
