Even though I’m not an “official” part of today’s blog hop, I wanted to post another card featuring products from the new Paradise Found release from Catherine Pooler Designs. For today’s card, I’m focusing on the new Winter Woodland stamp set illustrated by Lydia Evans. There are coordinating dies available for this stamp set as well, but I didn’t need them for my card today.
For this one layer card, I started by creating the night sky. I created a simple snowy hill mask from a piece of masking paper and applied it to my card where I wanted the horizon. Using a mini ink blending tool, I started by adding a big of Daydream ink at the horizon. As I moved up the card, I transitioned to using Royal Treatment. Finally, I added Juniper Mist over everything. To create some clouds and stars, I splattered on a bit a water and quickly blotted it up with a dry cloth.
For the snow banks, I also used a mask. I very lightly sponged on some Daydream ink along the mask border repositioning it twice to create a total of three hills. I then cleaned off most of the ink from the blending sponge and added one final layer of Daydream over everything so there wouldn’t be any stark white cardstock in my scene.
I stamped images from the Winter Woodland stamp set using Midnight ink. To give the appearance the critters and trees were behind the snowbanks, I once again applied the mast along the snowbanks before stamping my images.
The final step on this card was the sentiment. I stamped it using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it in gold.
