Happy Monday! I spent some time this weekend using some new items from the Holiday Catalog, which goes live on September 1st. Featured today is the new Home for the Holidays Framelits, which helps you create a window and a window box. I didn't use the window box, as my scene is from INSIDE the window. There is a bundle using the framelits with a stamp set called Happy Scenes and if you buy them together, you save 15%. I didn't use that set, I chose instead to use another stamp set called Wonderland. The trees and pine branches are from that set. My sentiment is from You're So Sweet.
|Hearth and Home Framelits 139666 $20|
|My window is adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals for a 3-D effect.|
Those Mossy Meadow dots are the new Home For Christmas Enamel Dots which are also from the Holiday Catalog.
|Very Vanilla Thick Twine is available September 1, 2015 in the Holiday Catalog.|
If you are wondering how I colored in my window scene, here is what I did. Using Mossy Meadow ink and the pines image from Wonderland, I stamped onto Whisper White card stock. Some of the trees are "stamped off," a technique where you ink the stamp and then stamp onto a scrap piece of paper before stamping your card stock. Next, I used Sponge Daubers with Soft Sky and Soft Suede inks to make my ground and sky. I kept lightly daubing until I had the color I wanted.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are encouraged to make your own cards! Won't you leave me a comment? :-)
