Seasons of Life part 3 of 3


I have tried to get decent pictures but to no avail. I will have to make do with these. This just goes to show it isn't the cost of the camera it's the operator. (Blush)

I took 2 full size pieces of cover weight cardstock and used the largest scalloped rectangle die to cut the windows of my luminary. I then taped in the stamped images and backed with white cardstock so the inside is finished as well. I only had to tape two sides as I folded the two sheets in half.


I am very pleased with the results.
These stamps by Stamps Happen are simply gorgeous!

Last time I showed you the images all stamped, embossed and colored. The next step is complete. I have added faux flowers. The scans don't show the dimension well but they are beautiful! You can find directions to make the faux flower soft on this video by Holly Young. I added from one to 4 drops per baggie of regular die reinkers (Ranger and Marvy).

One more step to finish my project!
