Oh my goodness Fall is just flying by and it is almost time to start making my holiday cards, so for our Nature theme this month I started getting out all of my Hero Holiday Stamps! It is always fun to “shop” your stash and re-visit an old favorite set. For the card below I used the Winter Time Fun set and did some simple masking to create the scene. To start I Die cut the wreath from some white cardstock and stamped the fox and the tree from the set, then cut some simple masks from post it tape to cover them as well as a curved piece to stick on top to create the snowbank.
Then I ink blended the night sky with splash ink very lightly using clarity stencil brushes and then more heavily using Blue Hawaii and then Grape Slush and let it dry thoroughly. I removed the masks and colored Mr. Fox and the tree with Copics and prismacolor pencils on top and added some detail with a micron pan. Finally I white heat embossed the sentiment from the set on a piece of lapis cardstock and some snowflakes on my colored panel. I carefully glued the wreath back on top of the circle and foam mounted it to the card and added some white details with a gel pen and crytal stickles for a little snowy sparkle.
Take a look at this set as it has alot of really sweet little wintry items for your Holiday cards. Dont forget to join us for the Nature challenge. Link Up for the giveaway is here.> Product Links are below too.
