Tiny Tree – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #576

Happy Friday!!!

Is it bad to constantly look forward to the weekend?   I just can’t seem to get excited about Monday-Thursday. . . . . . . .

Anyway, I made this snowy miniature scene today for you.  It’s using an unexpected stamp set, at least for this time of year, Stampin’ Up! Spooky Bingo Bits set.  I created a shadow in the snow using the reverse image technique.  Also added some texture and color spritz to create the background panel.   Check out my tutorial for this creation below.

Project Supplies: Stampin’ Up!  Spooky Bingo Bits (item# 123946)

Stamps:  Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Midnight Muse and Baja Breeze DSP

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Baja Breeze, Island Indigo and Midnight Muse

Accessories: Stampin’ Up! sponges, clear embossing powder, heat gun, Versmark Pad, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Spritzer, Island Indigo marker, Blender Pen, Baja Breeze Ribbon, Delicate Details Lace Tape, stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet, Design Frame Embossing Folder, Argyle Embossing Folder, post it note and silver brads

Stamped the tree at the top of a 1.5″ x 2 1/8″ piece of Whisper White card stock using Versamark.  Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder.  I am protecting the image.

Ripped a post it note and masked for the snow.  Sponged Baja Breeze, Island Indigo and Midnight Muse in for the sky.


Removed the post it note mask and stamped the tree on the slick side of my Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet with Baja Breeze ink and then turned the plastic sheet over and lined up the shadow with the base of the white tree.   Rubbed the back of the plastic to transfer the image to the card stock.   If you want the image a bit darker, darken it with a blender pen and Baja Breeze ink.

Sponged Baja Breeze ink at the bottom of the card stock and then sponged Midnight Muse ink  around the edges.

Embossed the frame image on a piece of Island Indigo card stock with the Big shot Machine and then cut it out and sponged Midnight Muse ink around the frame edges.

Cut a  4″ x 5.25″ piece of Whisper White and then used the Stampin’ Color Spritzer and a Island Indigo marker to spritz dots on the card stock.  Sponged Island Indigo ink around the edges.

Cut a 3.25″ piece of Midnight Muse card stock and then embossed that piece and the Whisper White spritzed piece using the Argyle embossing folder and the Big Shot machine.   Also cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Midnight Muse card stock and a Whisper White card base.

Cut a 1.5″ x 4.5″ piece of Baja Breeze DSP and added a strip of the Delicate Details Lace tape.  Love that lace tape!

Assembled my card added silver brads, Baja Breeze ribbon and a Whisper White panel underneath my frame.

Have a terrific weekend!

Until my next post. . . . . .
