Newborn King

I really wanted to play in the challenge this week over at Stampin Sisters in Christ - create a project that honors the birth of our precious Saviour!!! Well how could I resist?! :)


This stamp set has long been one of my very faves. I couldn't wait to get it out and inky again. I decided to emboss it in gold on natural cs, and then use my watercolors on this thick paper to see how vibrant it would turn out. the paper did not disappoint!!! look how those colors just pop!!! The beautiful dp is by Anna Griffin and was also inked with a gorgeous verse in Versamark for a subtle bg effect. I then embossed the pomegranate in gold in the lower corner. I added the luscious gold May Arts ribbon, a Prima flower, button, and gold cord. All edges were inked in gold.


The really cool part about this whole project - while I was making it, Ryan had pulled out one of our very favorite movies of all time, Godspell. I had that playing in the background while i was creating!!! Had a hard time keeping my feet still!! He and I were both singing along the entire time!!! What a glorious way to worship in more ways than one!! :)

I am also using this card for the Whimsy Stamps challenge - use embossing - heat or dry - on a project. this is my first time playing in one of their challenges. I used to emboss all the time and had forgotten just how much I really enjoy it! thanks for taking me down memory lane - both with a long forgotten technique and a treasured stamp set! :)

The embossing is just great on here. Very nice card. Plus I have a mental image of you sitting at a craft table, with dancing feet, belting out songs and watercoloring!
