You guys know I just love the stamp set Dove of Peace. It will be retiring soon from the Stampin’ Up! collection. So if you have not gotten this must have stamp. Your time is running out. Today, Stampin’ Up! announced what will be retiring from the Holiday Catalog. This is always a exciting time when a retiring list comes out. Because, this means their are many new exciting now items to come!
A few weeks ago I had the chance to make a card using Dove of Peace for Conformation. The dove is so perfect for such a occasion. While making this card I kept thinking about this…”Heaven came down and Glory filled my Soul” …
I was going to use these words. But, unfortunately I had lost my “e” in the Back to Basics stamp set. Do you know how hard it is to letter words with out a “e”!!!! Anyway, I decided on the simple words of love and Peace. For this is what conformation is truly about!
The card base is Blackberry Bliss card stock cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches. The Delightful Dijon layer is 5 1/4 inches by 4 inches. The layers on the left side are a combination of Bermuda Bay, Delightful Dijon, and Bohemian Designer Series Paper. The circle layer was made with ink refills and watercolor paper. I simply used a aqua painter and painted the color on and allowed the colors to mix. Using the Christmas Greetings and the Big Shot cut out the word “peace” in Bermuda Bay. The “&’ is from Back to Basics stamp set. The word “love came from a past paper pumpkin kit (Chalk It Up)
The dove was stamped after coloring it with a combination of Blackberry Bliss,, Delightful Dijon, and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Markers. After stamping the Dove use your paper snips to cut the dove out!
Dove of Peace is such a versatile stamp! It can be used for all sorts of occasions!!!! You will not regret have this stamp in your collection!!!!!! And remember that most of the Holiday Catalog is Retiring and will be gone on January 4th. Some items will be gone before then. Because, they are while Supplies Last!!!!
