It's a day of THREES today. It happens to be October 3rd, it's the third day of
My Favorite Things October Release Countdown, and I have THREE cards to share!
The first and second feature Winter Wonderland--a homespun set for you to
create your own village or winterscape, with buildings, trees, and deer.
On my first card, I white embossed the images on kraft card stock for a
"gingerbread" look. The new Die-namics Snow Drifts Cover Up provides
the perfect hillside terrain. Houses and deer were popped up over the hills.
The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of red card stock and
trimmed to a banner shape. Using a mini stapler, I stapled the straight edge
of the banner, then popped it up on the edge of the cover plate--faux stapling!
I can't stop playing with that little house! On my second card, I white embossed
the house image on white card stock and ink distressed with several colors of
dye ink. The trees and deer were also white embossed and ink distressed.
Grout Gray card stock (my absolute favorite neutral color!) was stamped
with the Pinstripe Background in the same ink color, and the panel was cut
with the rectangle element from Blueprints 24.
After adhering the panel to the card base, all the pieces were added
with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment was white embossed on
black card stock, trimmed into a banner, and adhered to the panel.
Two very different looks from the same stamp set!
Pure Innocence fans will love Dashing By--a little cutie on her sled.
For the card base, I white embossed the Snowfall Background on Smooth White
card stock. It's hard to see by the photo, but in real life, it's snowy cool!
In my very first time using embossing paste, I used the new Snowfall Stencil
and clear embossing paste on white card stock. After it was dry, I ink distressed
with some dye ink, and trimmed it out with the Stitched Rectangle STAX.
The little sled girl was colored with Copics and die cut with the
matching Die-namics. I used the stitched edge of the STAX die to cut
her snowy slope and mounted everything to the card base.
The sentiment is from Santa's Elves.
If you're still here, thanks for sticking through till the end of a super long post!
