From Heaven Above

Happy weekend, my friends! Here is a card that I made using one of the new gnome stamps released this month by Whiff of Joy Stamps.


I love this peaceful image. This stamp is called From Heaven Above.


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Small die. I masked the image and stamped the tiny dots from Essential Blackground - Spots & Dots II set at the bottom for some interest. The piece is then inked with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks while the paper was still in the die.


I took the advantage of the design of the patterned paper and used the printing at the bottom for my sentiment. The patterned paper is from Lost & Found Christmas 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. I traced the sentiment with Copic Clear Spica pen and created a couple of hollies with hand cut patterned paper and buttons.

That's all for today. Please check out the October release at Whiff of Joy Stamps here.





Have a beautiful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
