Winter Woods - using up left-overs

 I almost forgot to share this card and then I remembered that I was featuring the foil-edged cards this week. This card is the perfect example for fast and classy!   AND.... I am using up left-over scraps from the last Stamp-a-Stack session


I made over 30 of those cards in front of the TV on one evening... the Stamparatus sure helped a ton!

Winter Woods and Brusho

When I created my card for yesterday's post I did a trial run with the 2 trees... and had that piece still sitting on my desk today... That of course invited me to make another card...but this time I just used Brusho Crystals and my water spritzer to create the background


I was a bit careful not to spritz the water on the trees directly so the ink would not run. But since it was stamped yesterday, I had no problems... YAY - I like it when it works out the way I had hoped!

Winter Woods - non traditional Christmas Card

Yesterday I shared a non traditional Christmas Card... and today as well... but I am using the other color combination that did not win the majority votes... but some of my stampers still wanted to see what I would come up with... the colors are Blushing Bride, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape...





I used the sponge brayers and a circle punch shape to create the background. Once the card was completed, I spritzed it with Champagne Shimmer paint mist. Here is another view:




If you are wondering how I got one tree to be smaller and not hang off the bottom of the card, here is what I did (showing you on my white test piece of CS, I tore the post-it paper so the edge would not be so stark and straight...):




Oh and you may not see it very well but I used Blackberry Bliss and black Memento ink on the greeting:




The ink spot came handy to ink the "joy" in black... or you could use markers...
