Good morning. Guess what day it is? Again!? Yep – FRIDAY! Whoo-hoo! We’re teetering on the cusp of the weekend – and you only have to get thru about….8 hours of work before you are FREE!!! 🙂
I pulled out the Lighting the Way stamp set for today’s card and – imagine my surprise when I realized that I had never even mounted the stamps?! They were still on their packing acetate. I was a little gobsmacked! 🤷♀️🤷♀️. But – I made good use of it – and the coordinating dies for this one – and also used my Scalloped Contours dies (which is a true workhorse in any crafter’s tool chest). Take a look-see:
The layout for this one was inspired by the sketch at The Paper Players this week.
I started with a Lost Lagoon card base – and, across the bottom, used the three leaves images in the Lighting the Way stamp set to stamp in Pretty Peacock. Some of the images were in full strength and some in stamped-off-once ink.
I used the next-to-largest Scalloped Contour die to cut out a piece of the leaves-strewn Vellum Basics Specialty DSP.
I used the second-from-largest die in the Scalloped Contours die set to cut out a Pretty Peacock rectangle.
And – I used the lantern die from the Lighting the Way die set to cut out a Distressed Gold lantern.
I set both rectangles – and the lantern die cut – in place and then used the large “glow” stamp in the set to stamp the Vellum die cut in Daffodil Delight ink. Then I set it aside to dry.
In the meantime, near the bottom of the Pretty Peacock die cut, I stamped a Lighting the Way sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it with my Heat Tool.
Near the top, I stamped the lightning bug “trail” image from the set in Versamark, sprinkled it with gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat set that as well
With the ink dry on the Vellum die cut, I used Stampin’ Seal – only on the right side (where it would be hidden by the Pretty Peacock piece) – to adhere it to the card front. I used Stampin’ Seal to add the Pretty Peacock die cut as well.
Then I adhered the lantern in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I die cut three little lightning bugs from Berry Burst and popped them onto the card front with small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used a Glue Dot to adhere a simple bow tied with two pieces of Linen Thread, added some Rhinestone Basic Jewels – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped PART of the Lighting the Way sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink on a Basic White panel. In the corner, I stamped the trail image in Daffodil Delight, the smallest “glow” image in stamped-off-once Daffodil Delight – and the small lightning bug in Berry Burst!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Berry Burst mat and into the Lost Lagoon card base and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Lighting the Way “trail”, small glow and Berry Burst lightning bug on the front…
..and I stamped more leaves, some small “glow” images (x3) and the lightning bug (x3) on the envelope flap, too!
Et Voila! I can NOT believe it’s taken me this long to use this fun Lighting the Way stamp set and coordinating dies. What in the world, Mary!? 🤦♀️ I’m so glad I finally pulled it off the shelf! The Scalloped Contours dies, on the other hand, are oft used – and will stay that way!!
I hope you like!
