Every Good Gift

It's a good mail day when you get all the new Quietfire Design stamps in a package!!!!  If you go to the WHAT'S NEW category on their website you can see them all.  

Of course I needed to create something!!  I hope you like this card.

I began with the Crackle Background image.  I sprayed the stamp with Distress Spray Stains (Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade) and stamped it on white cardstock.... and stamped it again on another white cardstock....  and because I could tell there was still color to be used I stamped it several times on a blank journal page.  I've used one of the "stamped on white cardstock" pieces to begin this card.  I intended to stamp directly over the background but thought it was a bit too dark so went over the whole piece with Picket Fence Distress Stain and dried it.  I love how it muted the color.  I then stamped Every Good & Perfect Gift directly on the background and embossed it with black.  I decided that it was just too busy looking so I stamped the quote on white cardstock with Jet Black Archival Ink and cut it out with a Stitched Oval die (Elizabeth Craft Designs).  I then placed it directly over where I had stamped on the background matching up the top flourish where it went over the edge of the oval.  I distressed the edges of the background panel and inked them with Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade.  Next I added the flowers and then thought it needed more...  I stamped two words from the Jewelry Words set with Jet Black and punched them out with a 3/4" circle punch and edged them with Squeezed Lemonade.  I added them as shown and added some yellow gems.  The next layer is white cardstock edged with Picked Raspberry.  I put some Picked Raspberry Distress Spray Stain on my craft sheet, added a little water and dipped the edges of the paper in the color.  Once dry I layered the panels and attached them to a folded white card.  Fun, fun, fun!!!  And as you can see, the Jewelry Words don't have to be used for jewelry - they make great embellishments.
