Hello stampers and Happy New Year! I hope you entered 2019 happy, healthy, and safe!
Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #305. It's our January sketch. Along with our sketch, I used the photo from Inspired By #52 Let It Snow.
With Christmas being over I turned to more of a wintery forest type feel. I stamped the branch from Peaceful Noel around a Crumb Cake stiched shape circle with Gray Granite ink. I also stamped the cluster of snowflakes from Snow is Glistening around the circle and embossed them with white EP. I cut out a white snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits dies and added it to the center of the circle, embellishing it with a clear faceted gem. For the white panel, I stamped the tree image from Snow is glistening all over, making it look like the panel was stamped with a background stamp. I added a sentiment from Snow is Glistening that I thought could be a birthday greeting. I ran the whole white panel through the big shot with my Subtle TIEF. I embossed the Gray Granite background piece with my Woodland EF and sponged it with Gray Granite ink. I also sponged the Crumb Cake card base, the white snowflake panel and the Crumb Cake circle. I added a bit of Silver Thread to the back of the Crumb Cake circle as well. After adhering the whole thing together, I spritzed it with Champagne Shimmer mist spray. I painted on extra sparkle to the main snowflake with my Wink Of Stella pen. The shimmer of it all is amazing in real life!
I stamped the inside with a partial sentiment from Snow is Glistening and then added a Happy Birthday from Beautiful Bouquet.
I hope you'll be able to join us for the January sketch challenge at HSS!
