A KISS of Inspiration Day 3: Hark the Herald!

Hi All! Welcome to Day 3 of the Kraft-y Hearts' KISS Blog Share. If you haven't been over to Lynn's Blog, From My Bungalow, yet, you'll want to make sure to stop by. She has a fantastic give away for you!

Meanwhile, here's a look at today's bit of inspiration:

Folks, if you haven't picked up a copy of Make It From Your Heart vol. 1 (or 2), I would so encourage you to do it. These books are full of inspirational sketches that make creating beautiful cards and layouts a snap.

Today's card is inspired by sketch 21 on page 43 in Make It From Your Heart, vol 1., and the Sing Glory hostess stamp set. The card base is a standard size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches in Colonial White cardstock. The pattern papers are from the Yuletide Carol paper pack and are layered on top of New England Ivy cardstock. I inked around all of the layers with Champagne Exclusive Ink to make the card feel a little more vintage. I then stamped the angel in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed her using gold embossing powder. I cut out part of her arm and trumpet to give her a more dimensional look, and popped the layers up using regular dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is stamped in Cranberry Exclusive Ink and popped up on thin dimensional adhesive so that it fits nicely under the angel.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

And here's one more look at the card:

Now hop on over to see what the oh-so-talented Lynn Darda has in store for you, and leave a comment so that you can enter to win her awesome give-away.

We'll see you tomorrow as the KISS Blog Share continues....
