I used the Stampin’ Up! Lighting The Way stamp set bundle to create a thank you card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by The Paper Players PP625.
I started by adhering a panel of Starry Sky card stock to the front of a Thick Basic White card base with Stampin’ Seal. Then I stamped the image from the Lighting The Way stamp set (available in cling and photopolymer) in VersaMark ink two times on a panel of Enjoy The Journey DSP ($50 level Sale-a-bration and also a catalog item!). I sprinkled the images with silver embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders and then heat embossed them.
I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Basic White card stock and then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. I cut panels of Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight and White Vellum card stocks with the dies from the Lighting The Way Dies. I adhered the die cuts together and to the card front with Mini Glue Dots.
I stamped the sentiment from the Lighting The Way stamp set in VersaMark ink on a panel of Daffodil Delight card stock, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and then heat embossed it. I cut the sentiment out with one of the openings in the Picture This Dies and then adhered the die cut sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the images from the Lighting The Way stamp set in Gray Granite, Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight inks on a panel of Basic White card front to finish the inside of the card.
I made this project out on Instagram this morning and you can see it here.
