We’re so glad you are back for more w&w goodies!  Today, my cards are in the great outdoors, and both at night.  Did I mention how much I love a pretty navy blue?  Well, today I’m using shades of Broken China, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire *sigh* and Lapis Blue (an Ancient Page color close to sapphire). 

Card No. 1

In my Christmas card past, I was intrigued with the one layer cards that were popular where you stamp and emboss an image in white, and then you color around it to make it pop!  I just had to try it with our new giant pine tree from Winter Woodland.

jmog_peace_oct2014_day2

If you haven’t tried this technique before, prepare to be addicted!  I started with some Eclipse masking tape to section off my white card base and then, I stamped and embossed the tree in white.  Then, I gathered my distress inks and added color with an ink blending tool.  I stamped three sizes of snowflakes from Scenery: Big Bang Flurries scattered around using Stampin’ Up! Whisper White pigment ink.  For a few smaller bits of snow, I used my pearl glimmer mist nozzle to flick a few more specks of shimmer.  After removing the tape, you get your lovely image just floating on the card.  I love that feeling after removing the mask, don’t you?  Last but not least, I stamped the new peace sentiment from The Big, the Bold and the Merry in Lapis Blue.  Yes, it made me very happy!  *wink*

Card No. 2

jmog_seasonsgreetings_oct2014_day2


On this card, I really wanted to showcase the Mini Scenery: Into the Woods, but opted to use the Digital Elements version that is already sized perfectly for a 4.25 x 5.5 card.  I just opened the png file in my Silhouette cutting software and let it do all of the work.  Gotta love it!   The cut piece has strips of foam tape underneath to give it added dimension over another blue inked panel.  This time, I have Wink of Stella brushed at the top, and then I used a wet paint brush and pulled the sparkle from the top to the bottom to cast a subtle shimmer to the background.  The sentiment from Winter Woodland is stamped and embossed on a strip of vellum and adhered to the die cut.  Last but not least, I have the stag stamped on its coordinating Digital Element precut stamp shape rather than doing a fussy cut. Yea!

I hope you are ready to be blown away with today’s inspiration.  Shay, the Talent and our special guests have some fabulous projects to share.  Keep on scrolling!

Wow, Julie's beautiful cards are enchanting!  Navy is one of my favorites for any time of year and especially for the holidays!

I went with both non traditional and traditional color schemes with my cards.


Card No. 1

shay_day2_1

I am really thrilled with these 3x4 Mini Scenery stamp sets.  They can be used as backgrounds, focal points on a card, on tags, in scrapbooking and pocket memory keeping to name a few things.

I stamped the Mini Scenery: Into the Woods in black on a piece of grey cardstock and then pulled out my...white crayon.  People I have boxes of crayons (the big ones) as they were my friends growing up (don't tell anyone but I have coloring books too) and I still use them on occasion.  I colored in the bark of the tree and around the image with the white crayon.  Next I stamped one of the blocks of flurries from Scenery: Big Bang Flurry around the top of the panel in Versamark.  I also stamped the smallest matching flurry over the trees in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.  I stamped the sentiment from Winter Woodland in Versamark and heat embossed it in white.

You will note I used crayon and then heat embossed so there was obviously a little melting happening so I went over the trees a bit more with the crayon.

I stamped the plump cute cardinal from Winter Woodland in fired brick Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger on watercolor paper and cut it out and attached it to the panel.

This may be a card that looks a bit better in person. lol  Still I hope you will see that these stamps are pretty awesome. :-)

Card No. 2

shay_day2_2

My next card is all about Winter Woodland...what a stamp set!  I stamped the pine around and around in evergreen bough (perfect color!) Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger, I then overstamped with the pine stamp in Versamark and heat embossed in white.  I filled in some more space with the evergreen bough with the pine stamp.  Then I stamped the berries in Versamark and heat embossed it with rouge Zing! embossing powder.  I stamped the large pine cone twice and the little pine cone once with Versamark and embossed it with bronze embossing powder and then cut them out.  Before adhering the pine cones I added a nest of gold thread.

On a strip of white card stock with a tail cut out on one end, I stamped "merry christmas" from Winter Woodland in white embossing powder and then I colored in the banner with festive berries Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger.  I attached the banner with foam dimensional adhesive.
