Peace on Earth

A dove of hope spreads her message of peace on earth. It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List.

For this week’s challenge, we are inspired by the Twelve Days of Christmas.  Remember, at Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate or make a card for the occasion featured. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I used Christmas, gold, red and heat embossing to create my card. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

A few years ago, Stampin’ Up! released the gorgeous Detailed Dove dies.  When these dies were released, I knew I would never part with them. In fact, I even purchased a second set of them, just in case something would happen to the first set.  The dove forms such a gorgeous focal point.  Paired with Distressed Gold specialty paper and a Cherry Cobbler/Real Red background, the dove just “pops” off the page.  The Holly Berry dies collection are perfect for creating foliage and a lovely sentiment label.
