Last week, I shared a card I made with Stampin’ Up!’s Gentle Peace. I used Blendabilities to color in the stain glass window. If you missed it, you can see it here. Today, I’m sharing the same stamp set but giving it a different spin. This time, no color – just some metallic embossing powder on Sahara Sand. Here’s my card:
- Keep it Simple. This beautiful image speaks for itself, no? Kudos to the Stampin’ Up!’s lead illustrator, Kathy Pitt, for creating a beauty with this set. In photopolymer, it’s a new stamp, but the image is classic. To let the image do its work, I embossed it and left it alone.
- But Step it Up a Bit. Sure, I could have stamped it and left it alone – it still would have been beautiful, but I added two things that helped to step it up a bit. One: Pewter Stampin’ Emboss Powder adds a beautiful shine to this image. The pewter mimics the lead that would be used to solder the window pieces together (at least it’s how I think they’d look). While Pewter is no longer available from Stampin’ Up!, Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder is a perfect selection, too. Here’s a better look at how this embossing powder looks when it picks up the light:
- OK, Maybe One more Step. I ran my VersMark ink pad over a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock (just bigger than the outline of the window) and covered it with Pewter Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I then cropped around it, miming the shape of the window – just a little bit bigger. That piece is glued to the cardstock, and the window is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s the bottom corner of the window:
