Back To Christmas Cards

I am getting back to making Christmas cards as I want to fulfill my monthly commitment to make cards for that season. So with that in mind I pulled out this never before used stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle to create a winter scene,


I stamped the scene with Gina K. Designs Fresh Asparagus ink and then proceeded to color in the trees with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I also added more white to the snowy portions on the tree with a white paint pen. The sky was blended in with Gina K. Designs various shades of blue using the Life Changing Blending Brushes.  And again I used the white paint pen for the snow flakes in the sky. The sentiment was from another Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set. I die cut the panel with an Unknown scalloped stitch die before laying it onto a panel of Fresh Asparagus card stock. I finished the card by adding it to a white card base.

Stamps sets used:
Sparkle N Sprinkle Tree Scene Stamp
Sparkle N Sprinkle Winter Greetings Bird & Wreath

Well, back to making more Christmas cards. Thanks for the visits and wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

I especially like the little banner in this set. Very fun. I always like how you use the scallop edge and then border it with a straight edge. It looks very nice.

Gosh, your scene turned out beautiful! I assumed the trees were a solid stamp, but I see you colored them. Nice! A lovely snowy night sky, too. Very peaceful!
