Snowy Kiss

Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge

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.

  1. So cute! You did a great job on the trees and background. I would have left the cardinal off also; I would be too afraid to mess it up. Looking forward to the stencil fun.

  2. Great take on the challenge and you met the cuteness factor brilliantly. I may have stamped and fussy cut the cardinal even though probably very small, but adding it after the rest just by stamping would likely have left a mess.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Johanna I was debating about that cardinal but it was a tiny silhouette on a stem. Maybe I’ll try stamping and fussy cutting to see if it works.

  3. Oh so super cute!!! Love the wintery background and those fussy cut images are adorable. Good choice not stamping the cardinal.
