Day 1 of TE Sneak Peeks for August!

Today Taylor's Baker's Dozen is sneaking peeks of a very special Giving Tree set benefiting Angel TreeJoy to the World. This is my new favourite Whimsical Wishes set that I've illustrated and I see so many possibilities for cards, tooth fairy pillows, ornaments,.... I have two cards today, which feature the same sweet angel. 

First, here she is with her pocket of hearts. 


I stamped and masked the pocket before stamping the angel on patterned paper. Her head and halo were stamped on Gina K pure luxury cardstock and coloured with copics. The blue panel is dry embossed with the new Musical Swirls impression plate, which has whimsical swirls on one side and a musical score on the reverse. I've also used my Taylored medium scallop and hearts border dies but kept the overall card simple.

Well, here's the same precious angel but this time she's holding the wreath heat embossed in silver. 


I used a versamarker to heat emboss her halo after colouring her with copics. I also used a trick I learned from Taylor and coloured white half pearls with copics to match my colour scheme.

Can't wait to see what Taylor's talented team has created with these precious angels...

Thanks for stopping by...
