Winged Angel

Hey everyone!!

I hope you are having a super day!! Well, I had the chance to play a little in my Art "studio" LOL. It was really nice to be able to just have some fun and do something "just because"...

I have a dear friend, Gigi, that sent me an email with a new (at least to me) technique that I wanted to try...and believe me...Gigi is an encourager **cough, cough** enabler **cough, cough** LOL!!!! Buuuutttttttt, I am thankful for her showing this to me!!! LOL

I played around with a file of mine to get the technique down...and then I played with an Angel that I got from Rob at ScrappyDew. I hope you will take the time to visit his shop...he has some awesome files and he sends out a freebie in his newsletter, HOW COOL IS THAT??!!!!????? His design team The Dewettes, does an amazing job showing off his fantastic files!!

Anywho... I took his Fall Angel file and played a little...I used my Silver Bullet Professional cutter that I got from Sherri at That's Scrap, Inc with my click blade holder, the 45 degree blade and my original holder with the 30 degree fabric blade (also from That's Scrap, Inc.) to cut the Angel and wings out. Used SCAL for the software to send the cut to my Silver Bullet...such an awesome combination!!!!!

For the White Card:
The Angel is cut from WorldWin ColorMates Smooth and Silky Cardstock that I purchased from Tyler at All That Jazz Supplies. This is an awesome card stock to cuts like a hot knife through butter...yum-my!!! The main card for the card base is Bazzill Swiss Dot 12x12...the wings are cut from basic white tissue and layered behind for the "feathery" look...I used this file as a Christmas Angel...the stamps I used (don't remember who made them - sorry) are some that I've had for a couple of years and I stamped them with VersaMark Ink and used Perfect Pearls over the ink and added some sticky back pearls from my stash to her dress and hair...sooooooo, here she is....
 what do you think??? Oh, the's cutting part of the image from the original card itself and then having the layers of tissue "popping" out from behind, so that it is a dimensional card!! LOL

I did another one, more in keeping with the "Fall Angel" theme originally intended for the file...same basic concept...I used SCAL again to send the cut to my Silver Bullet Professional cutter...used gold tissue for the wings, a basic shape in SCAL (leaf) and cut those from a coffee filter, colored those with distress inks, a pumpkin from basic shapes cut from orange mulberry paper, and various other papers from my stash...

wellllllll.....that's all for today!!!

So a great big THANK YOU to my friend, Gigi, for sharing this with me!!!!!

I thank you for stopping by and maybe, just maybe, you will visit again soon!!!

Until then, I hope you have a blessed and creative day!!!
