As I imagine walking through the woods looking at the multitude of trees with their leaves starting to change, the beautiful fall colors of orange, yellow, green, and maybe a shade of blue come to my mind as the sun is shining down on God’s creations.
Into the Woods was created using Stampin’ UP! Ink Pads, the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and other Stampin’ UP! Products. Last night, I needed a change from what I had been doing all week. I wanted to play, so I grabbed a piece of Whisper White Card Stock, my trusty Clear Block A and Clear Block G, some ink pads and went to town. As I was layering on the ink and trying to see what I saw in the picture, I thought of trees.
Stampin’ UP! has a new Embossing folder called, “Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This new product is featured in the Holiday Catalog, called “Handmade for the Holidays”. The products in this catalog are good through 4 January 2016.
If you would like to have a Catalog Mailed to you, please leave me a message.
Joyful Season – These are the first 3 attempts at Creating my Full Card Swap for the NC Demos Quarterly Meeting. The meeting was cancelled due to some NC streets being flooded prior to Hurricane Joaquin arriving in our area on Sunday, 4 October 2015.
I really enjoy making my own backgrounds using the Clear Blocks. Block “A” is my favorite.
Come back on Saturday, 24 October 2015 to see the final design.
To start the season off a little early, these are the cards that my class did today. I just love each and every one of them They are all so different. These cards are just beautiful and I have to thank Janet Morrow Wakeland for offering the members of Patty Bennett’s Luv2Stamp Group to take part in her “Christmas in August Make n’ Take Fest” for a nominal fee. Her class gave me the inspiration to create the card with the Tree Embossing Folder and the Christmas Tree card. The other two cards, I cased from Janet’s class.
What I found to be fun on the Christmas Tree card, is that I used daubers and Stampin’ UP!’s Soft Sky Ink Pad to color the ribbon from white to light blue. The strip of background paper with the circles is Retired. I just needed something to pull in the blue.
To get the snow effect on the third card, use a dauber with Stampin’ UP! Whisper White Craft Pad. Apply it in a circular motion and it is up to you how heavy to apply the Whisper White Craft Ink.
On the fourth card, you use another dauber to shade the trees in. It is OK if you get off the tree.
