September Sneak Peeks Day One!

Here we are again! Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks time! The very best time of the month! Today I have two cards to share from this elegant new release stamp set, A Season of Wonder.
The very moment I saw this stamp set, I envisioned paper piecing her head-piece with this exact paper and pairing it with the moroccan screen embossing folder. Sometimes, ideas dont really come to fruition, but, today, I am thrilled with the results.

Details:
Stamps: A Season of Wonder (CDS)
Paper: Lakeshore textured & Crushed Curry textured cs,
Material Girl dp
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry
Tools/Accessories: Labels One Nestabilities, Corner Rounder
Ticket corner punch, Crushed Curry Ribbon, Lakeshore ribbon,
Moroccan screen embossing folder,sponge
Technique: Paper Piecing

For my second example, I wanted the image of Mary and Baby Jesus to be the main focus, and with that line of thought, I chose to use whisper white and labels 7, which reminds me of an open book, the Bible perhaps ... also the dsp reminds me of the starry night on the night of His birth.

Paper: Whisper White, unknown dp

Great job on both cards Christi. That paper piecing is so cool though.
