Christmas Pines Winter Scene Card

Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

Hello  Friends,

Did you see the super moon on Sunday?  The clear sky made it especially impressive.   It may not be a super moon, but  you can make a card with a moon using  ink, paper and a mask.  I stamped the scenery with the Christmas Pines stamp set.

Color Challenge

For this week's Splitcoast Stampers CC664 Color Challenge, Stef is the Hostess and she chose Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Pacific Point.  For dessert she chose Winter Sky and Winter Scene.   This challenge was way out of my comfort zone, but it's good to step out of your comfort zone from time to time.  Will you take the Challenge?  Find this week's Color Challenge here.

Masking Technique

Masking and Emboss Resist Stamping Techniques

To create today's scene, I  used 2 different stamping techniques.  The first technique is called Masking.  I cut a 2" Circle with the 2" Circle Punch from a Post It Note to create the moon.  Then, I sponged layers of Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Pacific Point to create the scene. 

The second technique is called Emboss Resist.  Both the snowflakes and the pine bough were embossed to resist the sponged on ink.  The embossing also prevents ink smears when sponging.

In the City, Cutest Hostess Stamp Set Ever?

In the City Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Some stamp sets are just so fun to play with and the In the City stamp set is one of those stamp sets.  The more you stamp, the cuter it gets.  The super fun part of this stamp set is that you stamp your color after you stamp your outline.  I love it!  No coloring, just straight stamping.  And, in my opinion, the In the City stamp set ranks very high on the cuteness scale.    Love the little planes, houses, trees, cars and clouds.  

In the City Stampin' Up!

  My colors for today's card are Tranquil Tide, Sweet Sugarplum, Soft Sky and Daffodil Delight.  I used Basic Black Ink to stamp the outlines and the sentiment.

  

Card Making Tip

 Neat Card Making Trick

The stamp that I wanted to use for today's card didn't say exactly what I wanted to say.  It said, "Thanks for letting us visit you."  Only one problem, only I be visiting on this trip.  To change the "us" to "me", I searched through stamp sets that I already owned looking specifically for a stamp that had the word "me".  I found just what I was looking for in the Lift Me Up stamp set.  Here's the trick.  I stamped the whole sentiment and then clipped out the part that I wanted which was the word "me".  I also clipped out the word "us" for my other stamp set.  Then I arranged my words to say something new.
