Hello Altenew friends! It's Virginia here. From the latest release, “Peace On Earth” is one of the most mentioned and beloved stamp sets. This set reminds us of our common love : World Peace AND stamping. “Merry Christmas” is included in many languages, and offers us endless possibilities and abundant creativity.
My first card is one layer! It may look simple, but it can be sophisticated!
Embossed with Silver Antique powder, the ornament was then inked with Sea Shore Oval Ink. I actually used the negative die cut paper (from the ornament) as a mask and applied ink to the ornament.
With a bit of planning, the results of a one layer card do not disappoint!
For my 2nd card, I used nearly every stamp in this set!
The various Christmas greeting in different languages provides such a nice background! I really love Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder as it looks so striking against the Dark Gray Cardstock.
The Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder is perfect for embossing the ornament on vellum! This way, the background is still visible and provides interest.
Did you happen to know that Altenew's Shimmer Ink Sprays are perfect for ink-splattering? All you need to do is take out the nozzle, gently tap it, and the ink droplets will splatter! I used Coral Berry on this card.
As for those “berries”? They are enamel dots from the New Day Card Kit! Aren't they yummy ?
Just when I thought “I am done,” I came up with another design with a Shaker Card element!
(note to self: this truly is a sign of a good stamp set. It keep your creativity going and going….)
I white-embossed the ornament on a piece of heat-resistant acetate and created a “window”. Underneath that window, I adhered foam tape around the ornament. I added sequins inside and stamped the design on the card front… this card is not difficult at all.
In total, I came up with 5 different designs with this stamp set.
Each card is unique, special and diverse….much like the world we live in. As card-makers, let's celebrate, pray and hope for “World Peace”. Thank you so much for reading this super long post. See you soon again!
