You just never know what I will put up on my blog from one day to the next, lol. My last post was a tropical scene, now today I am featuring a Winter scene. I do this for myself, so I won’t get stagnate in my creativity. It feels good to step out and do a Winter scene in August. Some of you stamper out there are probably already making, or at least preparing for your Christmas cards. So here is one to inspire you.

Masked the bottom of a 3.5″ x 4.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock using a Post it Note that has a bit of the sticky edge torn off.
Brayered More Mustard ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Cajun Craze ink at the very top of the card stock, not covering the More Mustard ink entirely.
Stamped the Trees from the Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree set twice using Basic Black ink. When I stamped it I stamped the ground area of the stamp on the Post it Note.
Sponged Cajan Craze ink at the Post it Note edge, just catching the card stock.
Removed the mask and stamped the Children stamp from the Stampin’ Up! set Welcome Christmas using Basic Black ink.
Stamped the Tree from the Stampin’ Up! set Season of Friendship using Basic Black ink.
Colored in the tree with a Basic Black marker to omit the design in the tree.
Stamp the children stamp on the Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet with Sahara Sand ink. Flipped the plastic Sheet over onto the card stock and rubbed the back of the plastic sheet to create the shadow.
The shadow is very faint so I colored it in with a Sahara Sand marker.
Added Basic Black and River Rock card stock panels, Whisper White Ribbon and Basic Black Brads.
Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.
May you be inspired by something out of the ordinary today.
Until my next post, stay cool.
