Let it Snow!

Hello there!

Since we have a cold wave here, I decide to create a card with winter scene.

  1. Trim watercolor paper to 4.25″ x 5.5″ as the front panel.
  2. Die cut a snow drift from mask paper and adhere to the front panel.
  3. Blend Broken China Distress Oxide ink and dot the snow with a white gel pen on the un-masked portion. Stamp the sentiment with black ink.
  4. Peel off the mask paper and apply some embossing paste as a snow drift and air dried.
  5. Die cut the birch trees from white card stock. Stamp & die cut the deers.
  6. Adhere the images to the front panel.

Sending a Snowfall of Blessings Your Way

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a X’mas card that was inspired by Time Out Challenge – Home Sweet Home Photo Challenge.

When my girls were 2 & 3, we created some snowflakes which were made from Arclyc paint & white glue. When the snowflakes were air dried, we stuck them on the window glass as window stickers.

I tried to recreate the scene I’ve rememberd!

  1. The window frame was die cut from white card stock. 
  2. The snowflakes were stamped with white Pigment ink on acetate sheet as the window glass.
  3. The wooggrain background was stamped on Kraft card stock.
  4. The window opening space was die cut from the Kraft card stock mentioned above.
  5. Snowfall was die cut from Summer Spalash card stock as the scene outside the window.
  6. All the pieces were layered on A2 card base.

  3. The birch trees were die cut from white card stock & were adhered with foam tapes & double sided tapes on the stenciled space.
  4. The bird house was die cut from Kraft card stock which was stamped with wood plank background in Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.
  5. A string was tied and adhered on the back of the bird house.
  6. The bird house was hang on the birch tree.
  7. The Robins were colored with Copic markers and were die cut.
