For today’s card, I pulled out one of my favourite scenic stamps from Penny Black, called Winter Woodland. With it, I added a really old stamp from Stampin’ Up! that I’ve had for ever! I think that together, they create a nice, wintery scene.
This card comes together quite quickly, with an ink blended background.
Start with a piece of smooth white cardstock. Mask off the ‘snowbank’ line, before you start adding the ink. Next, blend on Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Chipped Sapphire, for the sky background. The Fossilized Amber is to represent the sun either rising, or setting. Now, keeping the mask in place, set up the cardstock in your MISTI. Line up the stamp where you want the trees to be, and first apply Mowed Lawn Distress ink to the evergreen trees. Stamp, and repeat the inking & stamping as needed to get good coverage. Next, apply Vintage Photo for the bare trees, and the tree trunks.
Now, ink up the deer stamp in Nocturne ink, and stamp in the foreground. To create the snow on the ground, use texture paste. For the falling snow, mix white Gouache paint (or acrylic, whichever you have) with water. Load a small paintbrush, and flick the paint onto the card. Finally, stamp the sentiment from the Poppystamps Christmas Quotes stamp set in Nocturne ink, and then die cut it with the coordinating dies.
Once the texture paste has fully dried, then you can layer your card front together on a piece of light green cardstock, and then a dark green base.
