Simon Says Stamp / Making Spirits Bright Blog Hop

Stained Glass 

Hello and Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Making Spirits Bright Blog Hop!  We are celebrating the release of some fabulous new stamps and dies for the holidays.  Make sure to go do some shopping HERE or by clicking the link on my sidebar!!!


Using the new Stained Glass Greetings stamps, I white heat embossed the word PEACE and supporting small sentiments onto black cardstock.  Using the Using the Zig Kuretake Starry Gansaii Tambi Starry Colors, I watercolored the open parts to the word.  To make this a CAS card, I added 2 die cut borders using the new Pine Needle Border die.
