Winter Wonderland

Here's a pretty winter scene that can be used for a Christmas card but also for any occasion during the winter like a winter birthday.  I began with Crumb Cake card stock for the base, then created this cute little scene on Whisper White card stock.  For the clouds, I punched out a scrap piece of card stock using the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, then used my Stamping Sponge and Bashful Blue Classic Ink to create the clouds and sky.  The trees are stamped in Always Artichoke Classic Ink from Lovely As A Tree stamp set, the first in full strength ink and the other two stamping off first so that the ink is lighter.  Next I used a 2-Way Glue Pen to draw lines in the "snow" and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  I also glittered up the pine tree branches as well.  The two animals come from Forest Friends – the rabbit is stamped in Crumb Cake Classic Ink, the deer in Early Espresso Classic Ink – and both are cut out using the Paper Snips, then popped up with Dimensionals.  The sentiment comes from Bright Christmas in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I stamped it on Whisper White card stock with Early Espresso Classic Ink, then cut it out as a banner and popped it up with Dimensionals.

Sketch layout challenge

If you'll recall, back HERE I challenged my blog readers to come up with a card using a particular layout.  I received these two fabulous cards from Phyl Lyons of Seneca Falls, NY. 

In this first card, Phyl used Forest Friends stamp set.  At only $14.95, this stamp set is a great buy!

The card below uses a Level 1 hostess stamp set called Of the Earth.  The same tree image from Forest Friends is stamped tone-on-tone.  I love Phyl's bright color scheme in this one!

Beautiful cards, Phyl!  Just love what you came up with!  Thanks so much for sharing them with us!
