Hello everyone! I'm SO excited to be in this blog hop with all the other amazing women as part of the Simon Says Stamp My Favorite release that went live yesterday!
If you're just getting here now (either from my Facebook page or e-mail or just checking in) make sure to check out the beginning of the hop on the SSS blog HERE <-----click! I'll also have a link to the next stop on the hop at the end of this post, and well as giveaway info so be sure to read the whole post!
So here's the card I made using the new Painted Faith die from this release:
This week's SSS Flickr Challenge is ink blending which got me thinking about my Distress Inks and I had to play around with them when creating this card. (side note - if you aren't aware of the SSS Flickr challenge you can check out the group HERE - new challenges each week and there are chances to win prizes!).
I combined the new Painted Faith die with the previously released Churches dies and the Clustered Leaves die that I just got the other day. I also decided to go all out with the shimmer and used silver vellum and made a shimmer spray and added Spectrum Noir Clear glitter and Pico Shimmer embellisher to the Faith die cut.
I finished off the inside of the card with a sentiment from the SSS Friendship Blooms stamp set, and adhered the little cross that came out of the church diecut I'd used on the front of the card.
To see how this card came together check out my video below:
