Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope and Peace for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a sketch challenge, today – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

After perusing my stamp case shelves, I landed on the gorgeous Dove of Hope set – realizing I hadn’t used it in a minute!  Nor made one of the beautiful die-cut doves with the bundled Detailed Dove Dies.  So…I added in a Joy Dies sentiments and a Gold Card & Envelope and….take a look-see:

And – here’s our sketch!

I pulled my color palette from the challenge over at TGIF.

And my Dove let me play along at Tic-Tac-Toe this week, too! I ended up going down the diagonal: Gold – Frame – Bird. 🙂

I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on a Crushed Curry mat for the card front.  Then I took a strip of Merry Merlot paper from the Neutrals 6″ x 6″ DSP, matted IT on Crushed Curry and adhered it to the Very Vanilla panel with Liquid Glue.

Using the Detailed Dove dies, I cut two detailed wings and the body from a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut two solid wings from some Gold Foil.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the detailed wings to the solid wings.  I also adhered the tail of the dove to a piece of Gold Foil – and used my snips to trim the excess.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wings to the body and then popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using the Joy Dies – I cut a Peace sentiment from Garden Green and then the thinner sentiment from Crushed Curry.  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it onto the card front.

I adhered a single gold star – from the Wonder of the Season Memories & More Card pack – and the card front was done!

For the inside, I stamped the Dove of Hope sentiment in Merry Merlot in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I added the bough from the set in stamped off TWICE Garden Green.  Then I adhered another of the Gold Star stickers!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Gold Card (from the Gold Cards & Envelopes) – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Gold Envelope got…nuthin’!  That gold is such a rich and shimmery color – it needs nothing more! 🙂

Et Voila!  I love how stunning the dove is when you put it together from the die cuts in the Detailed Dove dies, don’t you?  And the sentiments and images in the bundled Dove of Hope stamp set complement it perfectly.  The Joy Dies are…ready?…a real….JOY to work with – letting you easily create multi-layered “Joy” – “Peace”  – “Bright”  sentiments.

I hope you like!
