You Light Up My Life

I made a card to participate in the Christian Paper Crafts May Blog Hop.  Each month Christian Paper Crafts (aka CPC) has a blog hop starting the 22nd of each month.  Each month has a different theme.  This month, the theme is "For the man in your life."

I finally got to ink up a new set of clear stamps, Shining Light, from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I've been using so many of Korin's digi stamps lately that my clear stamps are feeling neglected.  This set has a lighthouse image and 8 sentiments to go with it.  I also used this week's sketch from The Sweet Stop (SSS109) for my card.  This week it's a sketch with a spin - which means there is a prize to be won.  The spin is to make a masculine card.

I used paper piercing to add some dimension to the patterned paper panels. I used some inking on the image panel to finish off the edges. I used a background stamp and versamark to add some interest to the red layer.  It just doesn't show up well in the picture. :(



I am also entering this card in the Paper Sundae Challenge #70 - Pop it up.  My patterned paper panels and my lighthouse panel are all popped up with dimensionals.

Supplies:
Cardstock - Bazzill
Patterned Paper - Fancy Pants
Stamps - Sweet 'n Sassy (Shining Light), SU
Ink - Memento (Tuxedo Black), Colorbox Fluid Chalk (Charcoal), VersaMark
Embellishments - Prismacolor Pencils, Metal Dots (Best Occasions), paper piercer
