Note that this set is a limited edition STAMPtember Exclusive. Once the set sells out, it will not be restocked.
The silhouetted birch trees really captured my attention with this set – though the snowmen are SO cute. But when I saw the silhouetted birch trees, I immediately thought of a wooded sunset, the trees dark against the colored sky. With that in mind, I paired the set with the Simon Says Stamp Flowing Vine Collage die set.
Both the stamping and ink blending was done with Distress Inks; you can see the entire process in the video below!
Because I was going for a winter scene, I knew I wanted to create an snowy/icy appearance to this card. By putting my sunset scene inside a shaker, I was able to make it appear as if it were snowing; those Iridescent Confetti sequins from Pretty Pink Posh enhance the ethereal feel of the scene beautifully.
With some Tonic Studios Nuvo Glitter Drops in the White Blizzard color, I turned the Flowing Vines Collage die cut into icy branches. I love how the glitter drops make them look like they are ice-encrusted!
Finally, to bring out the colors in the sunset and confetti sequins, I used some Lucy’s Cards Rainbow Sparkle jewels and adhered them onto the “icy branches”.
I was so happy with how this card turned out and I hope that it has inspired you to use the new STAMPtember exclusive from Gina K. and Simon Says Stamp, Warmer with You!
Thanks for visiting me today! I have another video coming up tomorrow featuring the next STAMPtember exclusive… hint, bring your sunglasses, because it’s a bright one! ;)
