Christmas Card: Angelic Joy

This is another card designed by the very talented Suzanne Askey as a Make 'n Take at one of our Demo meetings.  This is one of the new stamps found in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. These catalogs were mailed out several weeks ago - please let me know if you need one.  There is some really amazing new product in this catalog:
  **new punches, dies and stencils
  **waffle paper!
  **new stamps for Halloween, Christmas and
     Valentines Day
  **a 3D house to decorate
  **rolls of adhesive for use with die cut pieces
  **glimmer brads
  **new baubles for the Simply Adorned Jewelry
  **2 new embossing folders
  **tiny paper bags for goodies
  **recordable sound cards
. . . and much more

water color paper
Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
Black Embossing Powder
Heat Gun
Stamp Set:
Angelic Joy
Baroque Motifs
Night of Navy
Bermuda Bay
Blush Blossom
Chocolate Chip
The swirls from the Baroque Motifs  stamp set were stamped twice with Versamark.  We sprinkled on the Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat set it.  The angel was embossed in black on watercolor paper.  We had to emboss it because we were doing water color and the black ink is water soluble. 

We picked up the color from directly from the ink pad using the Aqua Painter.  You can also use markers to color an outline and then use the AquaPainter to spread the color.  In fact we had to use the marker for the Blush Blossom color on the Angel's face.  Stampin'Up! retired the Blush Blossom Ink pad but still carries the marker. 

These colors are lovely as a Christmas Card or as a Sympathy card. 

Let me know if there is any way I can help you with your stamping.
