Sparkling Angel

Hi everyone!
I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted! Christmas really got the better of me this year! Maybe next year I'll get wise and get started on everything in October instead of November. Yeah right LOL! I'm one of those people who work better under pressure.

Despite my lack of posting I have been stamping a lot. I just put around 30 new cards in my Etsy shop today, and this is one of them. I just think this angel is the cutest little thing! She's from Stampin' Up! and I stamped her once on white card stock and then I embossed her on the patterned paper, cut out the dress and paper pieced it onto the stamped image. I also colored the little flowers on her dress and added sticky blue rhinestones to the centers. I LOVE this paper from K&Co. too. I felt like I'd been neglecting my punches for awhile too, so I made the little flowers in the corners, punched some leaves and then added baby blue sticky back pearls to the centers of the flowers. I swear these little sticky back pearls are so addicting - which reminds me I need to make a trip to Michael's this week for more. Hee Hee!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We're actually not done celebrating yet because my sister and her family were in FL over the holiday so we're celebrating with them this weekend. And wow is it going to be another busy weekend at that! We're getting together with friends on New Years Eve, then we get together with my husband's family on New Years Day, and then my whole family is coming here the day after that. Yikes! I'm going to need a vacation soon. LOL.

Take Care & God bless!

  1. Oh Sue! This is such a Heavenly card :) The little blue pearls add such a pretty touch.

  2. Hey Sue, I'm not sure if my earlier comment went through. Just wanted to wish you a wonderful New Year. This angel card is darling!!!! All of your cards are! Thanks for standing by me and my "organized mess" of a scrabooking room! I guess only crafters understand that! lol
    Take care, deb

  3. Pretty blue on her dress, flowers and pearls. Very sweet...I'd have never guessed she was from SU! And wow you HAVE been busy! :)
