Angels Sing

Hi all - Happy New Year and hope you had wonderful holidays! I'm back from 3 weeks in Arizona to subzero temps in Minnesota - ugh! It's supposed to warm up this weekend and I can't wait!! Anyway, Merry Monday is back after their holiday break and we have Sue's challenge to use an angel on a Christmas card. It's fun to be blogging again after my holidays!


I just love angels and made a card before the holidays using a Silhouette angel file by Hero Arts. For this week's angel card I decided to use an old favorite Hero Arts stamp set.

Angels sing
Supplies: Neenah Solar White paper; Hero Arts pool card; DCWV Linen Closet Matstack; scraps of patterned paper
Stamps - Hero Arts CL354 Let the Angels Sing
Dies - Spellbinders Classic Ovals & Elegant Ovals
Ink - Ranger Archival Watering Can by Wendy Vecchi
Other - Copic Markers, Stickles (gold and icy), washi tape; Marvy white pen; foam tape

I started by stamping the angel on thick white paper and trimming it. Then I paper-pieced her. The head to the collar, hands with white robe trim, and feet were stamped on white and colored with Copics; I stamped the robe on a scrap of patterned paper. I trimmed the pieces and glued to the solid white angel, then stickled the wings and halo. The sentiment comes as one horizontal line but I had cut it into four pieces long ago so I could stack the words. This time I decided to stamp the words in a curve - so easy using the MISTI. The piano keyboard washi tape came from my friend Heather (with a bunch of other goodies) - thanks again, Heather!! In a "make it work" moment, I dotted the card with white pen to cover up a tiny ink spot and decided to keep dotting!

Be sure to stop by Merry Monday for inspiration and impetus to get your Christmas cards done before the holidays. This is my third year of playing in their challenges and just love them! Thanks for stopping and have a crafty week!
