My Hearts Pleasure

Snowy Hills


Good morning! It’s Tuesday so that means we have another challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper. This week our challenge is a designers choice. You get to choose your favorite products and materials. Don’t you just love the freedom of that!

SIP Challenge 16

I choose to create a snowy hill bank scene using my favorite technique sponging.  This is what I created

Snowy hills

I started with a Not Quite Navy card base and then a layer of Whisper White.  My next layer I started with another piece of Whisper White and using hand cut templates I sponged the hills using Marina Mist and Not Quite Navy.  I then used a white gel pen to outline the tops of the hills to give a look of snow.  Next I stamped the trees with Mossy Meadow using the templates so that the bottom of the trees look hidden behind the hills.  Next I stamped the house from the set Holiday Home and colored with my Tim Holtz markers.  I cut the deer using my die from the Gina Marie line and placed him on one of the bottom hills.  Next I die cut 5 pieces of the word Peace from the Christmas Greetings thinlets and glued all the layers together and attached to the top hill. I then attached this finished layer to my card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my creation and you have been inspired to play along with us this week at Stamp Ink Paper

Until next time

Happy Crafting
