Hello friends! I am excited to show you two cards created today from two stamp sets with a Winter theme. I would like to stretch Fall out as long as possible, but there is something endearing about a fluffy snow fall and a fire in the fireplace! Right?!?
This first card was created with the Christmas Tree Shopping stamp set. This set is adorable and has plenty of images to create a multitude of winter scenes. I started with an A2 Kraft cardstock panel cut down by 1/2” on two sides. I swiped the Watermark Ink pad across the bottom of the panel and added puff embossing powder that is perfect for snow. It adds a ton of texture. I also used a embossing ink marker to add dots of snow (also heat embossed with puff embossing powder) in the sky.
I chose three images to color with alcohol markers and added additional puff embossing powder to one of the trees. I diecut all the images using the Christmas Tree Shopping coordinating dies. This duo also comes as a bundled set!
I assembled the finished card starting with an A2 top folding Kraft card stock base. I layered the card panel on top of a complimentary green panel cut 1/4” larger. I then added the scene pieces with foam for dimension, except the one tree is adhered flat with liquid adhesive. The last step was adding the sentiment from the Bundle Up Collage stamp set. I stamped it on Kraft card stock and white heat embossed with a snowflake from the same set. I then cut and layered with a scrap piece of the same green card stock and adhered using liquid adhesive. Simplicity in the scene allows these little images to shine. They are so adorable.
The second card uses the same two stamp sets, the Bundle Up collage and the Christmas Tree Shopping sets. I created the simple background using several of the text stamps from the Bundle Up stamp set. They are stamped in Watermark Ink and heat embossed using white powder. I also added white embossing powder around the edge of the panel by pressing the edge of the panel into the Watermark ink pad, and then adding the embossing powder. This panel is cut 1/2” small than the standard A2 size.
I then stamped an image from the Christmas Tree Shopping set and colored with alcohol markers and die cut. To assemble the card, I started with an A2 Kraft card stock base and layered it much like the first card. This time using a coordinating blue panel for the layering. I popped up the bears with foam squares and added some sparkle with embellishments.
A clean & simple, but fun card! I would love to hear what you think of these two cards, and can’t wait to see all the fun projects created with these stamp sets!
Happy crafting, LeeAnn
