Celebrate the Season


I decided I’d play along with the Simon Says ,,,,, DIES and/or PUNCHES  where the challenge is to use dies or punches.

I made a Christmas card with this die from Simon and Says Stamp to create a winter scene.

Supplies: Stamps: Good Cheer (Technique Tuesday)   Dies: Mod Tree (SSS), In the Meadow (PTI) Inks: Distress Inks (Ranger), Archival Ink (Ranger) Other: Perfect Pearls Mist Pearl (Ranger), Mister Huey’s Opaque White (Studio Calico), Distress Ink Stain Picket Fence (Ranger), Clear Glitter (Martha Stewart), Star Gem (Hobby Lobby), Dimensional Stickers (Scotch)

The card panel was colored with various shades of blue Distress Inks.  For a snowy effect I flicked onto the panel Picket Fence Distress Stain mixed with a little water.  On 2 separate sheets of white CS, I colored each paper with different shades of green Distress Ink – one being lighter, the other sheet darker.  I die cut 2 trees from each paper.  I sprayed the lighter shaded green trees with Mister Huey’s Opaque White Mist.  The darker colored trees were sprayed with Perfect Pearls Pearl Mist.

I then cut 2 trees from the blue colored card panel.  I carefully pulled these trees off and set them aside for another use.  I then added the lighter colored green trees into that negative space so it would be flush with the panel.

From another piece of white cardstock, I die cut the snow banks from this die set from PTI.  I also added glitter on the edges and added the sentiment on the smaller snowbank.  I adhered one of the darker colored trees onto the blue panel.  I then added the larger snowbank. Next,  I adhered the second darker colored tree onto this snowbank and added a star gem to its top.  I then added the smaller snowbank with dimensional stickers to finish off the panel.  Finally, the panel was adhered to a card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
