Love, Hope and Joy
by Shelby Thomas


Good morning Memory Box fans!  I hope you had a wonderful time last week looking at all of the wonderful new dies and the fantabulous creations from the design team.  Today I'm using the new stamp set made exclusively for the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember celebration called Love and Laughter.


I pulled out and dusted off my Copic airbrush system to create the background.  Of course the lamp and wreath were masked before laying down the background.  The simple, yet beautiful lamppost and wreath were colored with Copics.  I stamped the snowflakes with versafine and embossed with fine white detailed embossing powder.  The sentiment was stamped with Hero Arts ombre pigment inks and then heat embossed.


The front panel was cut to 4x5.25 and adhered to the A2 cardbase.  The airbrush system definitely makes for a quick yet dramatic background!  Of course the same background can be created using distress inks or other inks that lend themselves to blending.

Thanks for popping in for a visit today.






Oh my goodness Shelby this is absolutely GORGEOUS!
I DID enjoy the Blitz last week, as a matter of fact, I couldn't wait to get to my fav. store last week that carries a LOT of Memory Box dies. I was there for 2 hours and I went through EVERY SINGLE ONE! Such fun!

This is a stunning scene! I love all the different techniques that you used and the glow from the light is beautiful!!! Wonderful and lovely!! TFS!

Beautiful card! Love the airbrushed background!

WOW the coloring on this looks like it was done professionally froma print shop. Beautiful card.

Gorgeous card, Shelby!

Great card! a very different look from the others that used this stamp set, which shows how versatile it is!

Such a pretty card! I love the way you colored the background, giving it that glow look! Awesome!

Love this, your glow of the light is so pretty and I love how you colored the top of the wreath lighter for the glow on the wreath!
