Peace on Earth- Three Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers! 

I had a chance to relax and stamp last night and wanted to create a card using the PP224 Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge  (I chose Tree, Embossing and Glitter :-)) along with the CC507 Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge (dessert option of a Tree on your card)  and the SC92 Holiday Inspiration Photo Challenge
Again, if you have not visited the above sites, I hope you will do so- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Use a scrap piece of paper or a sticky note to mask the snow banks.  Use a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink onto the sky area and ink the retired stamp, Evergreen using Early Espresso Classic Ink and repeatedly stamp the trees in the background.

Use a Stampin’ Write Early Espresso marker to darken the trees and add highlights with a Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen.

Add additional highlights with a paint brush and Soft White acrylic paint as well as applying highlights to the snow banks.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ to cut the image into an oval, cut another oval the same size from Early Espresso cardstock- split the Early Espresso oval in half and mount behind the masked image.

Use the Two-Way Glue Pen to apply glue onto the branches and add Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Holiday Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock (ink the interior of the folder before embossing with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink).  Carefully cut out the embossed panel.

Adhere a piece of Early Espresso cardstock to the end of a piece of Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhere to the Early Espresso card base.

Add the embossed frame and oval image using Stampin Dimensionals® to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment from the retired Greetings of the Season stamp set using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  Create the banner using the Hexagon Punch, mount onto Early Espresso cardstock (creating the banner with the Hexagon Punch as well). 

Add the sentiment to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the green Satin Ribbon bow to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Evergreen, Greetings of the Season

Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso; Faber-Castell White Pitt Pen, Soft White Acrylic Paint

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Early Espresso; Trim the Tree DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Holiday Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Oval Framelits™, Sponge Dauber, Dazzling Diamonds, Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!!
