Blessed are the Peacemakers


I have another card to share with you from the Peace on Earth set, newly released by Our Daily Bread Designs.  As soon as I saw this dove, I knew that I wanted to make the simplest card possible using it.   With three different scriptures in the set, initially it was a tough choice which one to use but I soon settled on the Matthew 5:9 verse. 

This dove is so serene…I stamped it and the verse onto transparency that I had already cut with a circle cutter – the ink of course, was black Stazon.  On the underside of the transparency I painted the dove with several coats of shimmery acrylic paint.  This card is almost modular, all the pieces were cut and put together including the bow being tied before the clear image of the dove was put into place with a couple of glue dots. I could easily stamp some of the other images onto circular cut transparency and trade the images out.  Although you can’t tell from this angle, the gold brads are paired with rondelles I raided from my beading supplies; they elevate the gold brads and add extra shimmer when looking from the side.  The corners of the card are metal corner pieces that are pressed into place.  The base of the card and the embossing are done on 90 lb watercolor for the oomph needed to get the embossing to pop, and the base paper is shimmery (camera doesn’t do it justice) melon colored paper from The Paper Company.

Yesterday marked the release of three new sets and one additional prayer stamp at Our Daily Bread Designs.   Pop on over to see the sets in their entirety and remember that throughout the month I’ll be showcasing projects and cards from each set.  

I hope your weekend is blessed with good family time and sweet rest!

    Becca – the ribbon on this card is almost as breathtaking as the card itself. Where did you get it and do you remember who makes it. Again what a beautiful job.ReplyCancel

    The card is lovely, where do you buy the “Paper Company’s melon colored paper, directly from them or a store?ReplyCancel

    As always, another stunning card!!!!!!!! I love the verse, the dove, the colors, and that you used a transparency for the verse- that makes the verse look like it’s floating- very cool affect :). And of course, I love the embossing too :D. The ribbon is just gorgeous too!

    Hello Becca…
    I was blessed to have found your blog about a week ago…and I must say I am awed by your talent and your lovely spirit. I want to take a moment and thank you for sharing so much of yourself with all of us…for taking the time to make the tutorials and answering the questions that readers have submitted. I have one simple question…well, actually I have many…but, my question today is this..How do you tie such beautiful bows. I have read many tutorials showcasing various different types of bows and knots and am having so much trouble looking at the diagrams…following the various arrows, ect. Would you please bless us with a tutorial of bow tying? I think if I actually saw you do it, I could learn! God bless you…DustyReplyCancel

    I thought it was somehow ME when I couldn’t get your updates. I am truly grateful we’re back on track.
    I must say your artistry is exemplary. I am Blessed, indeed, to have found you and the others.ReplyCancel
