I have moved to a new blog… click image for it (this post will be there, too)
Hello and welcome back! This is the reminder post for CAS Christmas August Tree challenge. Here’s my card.
A hill was masked off on the bottom portion of an A2 size piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamped the tree layers using the MISTI. The first three layers were stamped with Volcano Lake, Lagoon and Emerald dye inks. The fourth layer was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Went back to the first solid stamp and re-stamped over the whole image with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This served as a ‘mask’ and Tumbled Glass distress ink was then added with a mini blending tool for the background.
Wiped off excess ink with a paper towel then heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder. Added snowflakes with a white gel pen, even on the embossed areas. Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle, then popped it up with foam tape onto a white cardbase to finish.
I’ve had this set since it was released two years ago I think(?). Until now, I’ve only ever used the sentiments in the set. I have no idea why I waited so long to use this because it’s a great set! I played around with different colours before settling with my favourite one above, but I didn’t want those experimental pieces to go to waste, so I turned them into cards as well.
Barb of Barb’s Studio Creations is joining us again as our guest. She and my team created some inspiring cards and you can view them on the challenge blog HERE. There is one week left to join us. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!
