I love being out in nature. It definitely is my go to place when I need to recharge.
I enjoy making nature type cards for the holidays. Last year I did a Raspberry Berry color, this year I went with Denim Days. I love how you get a different look with each color.
Using the 1″ circle punch (TO-0013), I punch out a mask from a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) to make the moon. I gently adhered this piece to a Whip Cream card panel. Taking my Denim Days (IP-0010) ink pad, I applied the pad directly to an Clear Block J (TO-0079), the using the Brayer (TO-0087), I picked up the ink from the block and rolled it onto the Whip Cream panel staring at the bottom and working my way up to the top.
Using the Fresh Forest (SS-0487) stamp set, I inked up some of the images in Fresh Forest (IP-0013) ink and stamped them onto the same panel. Using the Star from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) set, I stamped that in Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink. The sentiment came from the Night Star (SS-0518) stamp set [this is a Host Exclusive] in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.
I mixed a bit of Gesso (JM-0072) and water [you can also use acrylic paint (JM-01063) and water – I will put both in the supply list below) and using the Medium Blending Brush (TO-0098) and a Clear Block F (TO-0075), I flicked the mixture off the edge of the acrylic block to make the snow. I then added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126). Once that was done I removed the 1″ mask.
This panel was then adhered to a piece of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) before being added to a Denim Days (CS-0082) card base.
For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Night Star (SS-0518) [Host Exclusive] stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and also added the star from the front to the inside using Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.
Below is the card I did last year. Love making nature type cards!
May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
