Up first I have a card using the boy and girl angels. These little angels were designed to hold the candle, harp, horn or the included banner as shown here. To create this card I inked up my background with Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire distress inks and then a bit of Black Soot for the outside edge before splattering it with water.
I then applied some watermark ink directly to a scratch piece of kraft cardstock by just pressing the pad to the cardstock to get good coverage. I then sprinkled it with sparkly gold embossing powder and heat set it before die-cutting my stars from it. The dies left a small impression in the center of each star so after I adhered them to my card with a glue pen, I just quickly heat them again to perk them back up.
For my next card I had those same angels hold hands and this time I went with more of a silver color palette for their gowns, adding Stardust Stickles to their wings. For my clouds, I blended Spun Sugar & Shaded Lilac distress inks using a handmade cloud stencil I created using another new product that will be featured on Friday. ;)
For my sentiment I also used one of the everyday phrases found in the companion Angelic Sentiments set. This set has options to either build the sentiment to say "I'm praying for you" or "We're praying for you".
For this card I thought it would be sweet to create a choir of angels. There's a separate image for a book with hands in this set that you can either stamp and mask off before stamping the larger girl image over the top (or stamp, cut out and layer over the top of the girl) to turn the praying angel into a caroling or bible reading angel. ;)
For this card I borrowed some clouds from our Sunny Sentiments and Rain or Shine sets, but I probably could have also just used the cloud that came with the set. I also snagged another favorite banner of mine from our Sunny Borders set to hold the sentiment.
My next card came to me in a dream. Love when that happens, don't you? ;) I thought it would be fun to have a little cutout in my card front that matched the angle of the horn and revealed a pretty inked background below. I had actually envisioned a sentiment coming out of the horn, but I just couldn't make it work and look right so I was happy when this short sentiment seemed like the perfect fit (in more ways than one) from the Angelic Sentiments set. Instead I decided to heat emboss the musical notes from the set in a random pattern.
This card is a more Christmassy version of the first card in this post done up in classic Christmas colors. The little bit of holly was borrowed from the Blissful Baking set shared yesterday.
Can I just gush for a moment how much I've enjoyed this banner? I've used it on sooo many cards from this release as you will see. ;)
And for this card I wanted to use the little angel on the cloud that sort of inspired the entire set. For my larger stars and the little dotted line that they are "hanging" from I borrowed some stamps from our Halloween Cuties set. A birthday greeting from the Angelic Sentiments set completes my card.
And for my last card I couldn't resist squeezing in a rainbow (of course) by using that same little girl angel and trimming off her wings and halo to just be a row of little girls. Having never done images of anything, but critters I enjoyed the ability to create a human rainbow with all sorts of different skin & hair colors.
I completed my card by inking up our Sweet Word die with a rainbow of distress inks and heat embossing a sentiment from our coordinating Sweet Shoppe set.
