Thoughts of You- A CAS Winter Scene
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had a chance to stamp a few cards this weekend and wanted to share a quick and easy card that I created using two Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamp Sets- Landscape Silhouettes and LongStem Silhouettes.
I decided to incorporate the Splitcoaststampers’ Way To Use It WT563 “Christmas Eve” Challenge (Shadows and/or Silhouettes) along with the Simon Monday “Winter Wonderland” Challenge and 4 Crafty Chicks 4 CC #279 “Crazy Egg/Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- gorgeous Design Team samples and inspiration from all!
Using Sponge Daubers, apply Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie and Midnight Muse Classic Ink to a piece of Whisper White cardstock to create the night sky.
Stamp the silhouette image from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Landscape Silhouettes onto the sponged sky using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink.
Using a paint brush with Titanium White Acrylic Paint, add a few stars to the sky.
Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment from Long Stem Silhouettes using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto the Basic Black card base.
Add the silhouette scene using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Classic Ink- Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, retired Midnight Muse; Titanium Acrylic White Paint
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Paint Brush
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs and have a blessed day, my friends!
