I enjoy making cute cards and this month’s inspiration mood board with the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge #22 Anything Christmas was full of cuteness. I was drawn to the snowy forest scene and finally decide that the Penny Black Snow Kiss stamp was as cute as I could find in my stash of stamps. After stamping, coloring and fussy cutting, I was ready for my background. My trees are white heat embossed from Gina K Designs Winter Cheer stamp set which was stamped three times on a night sky patterened paper, it was then dry embossed using Tim Holtz Alterations/Sizzix embossing folder. After swiping a little white pigment ink over the raised areas and flicking some white paint I was ready for some snowy hills. These came from SimonSaysStamps’ Layered Hills dies. Sentiment was stamped after everything was assembled is from GKD’s Holiday Tags stamp set and I held my breath as I stamped it. I wanted to add a small cardinal in the trees and had the perfect stamp which needed to be taped off, however, I took another deep breath but decided not to press my luck especially with the dry embossing. Whew!!
Diane and Darlene are starting a new challenge in October. Stencil Fun! So glad these gals are giving us a reason to use all of our different supplies and techniques. Always so much fun to play along with their challenges.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care, be safe and stay cool.
