What a busy weekend I had. I had to make 6 cards for our January birthday get-together we had today. A few of the cards, were actually for birthdays in December that I didn't have a chance to make. This card was for my nephew, whose birthday was in December. I'm so glad my mojo is working again. I really think taking a stamp class at my local stamp store truly helped. This card we made in the class, but I came home and tweaked it just a bit. She had us make a card that was 6" x 4.25. I took the card apart and trimmed it down to 5.5 x 4.25. We used Penny Black's stamp "Snowy Grove" and inked it up in black, then used Distress Inks in "Wild Honey" first to make the sunrise, and "Blueprint Sketch" for the sky. I am so in love with Blueprint Sketch. It's my new favorite Distress color! After that, we took White Enamel Embossing Powder from Stampendous to mimic falling snow. On a previous card I made with this same stamp (before I took this class) I used a white gel pen for the snow. It took a bit more time, but gave the same effect. I then used Simon Says Stamp "Stitched Slopes & Hills" dies to make my snow drifts. The three die cut deer are from Memory Box called "Valley Deer Trio" that I glued on. I stamped "Happy Birthday" from Penny Black's "Friendship" stamp set also in black ink. Quick, easy card.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I love it when you do.
