Winter Is Calling!

Good morning!  Fall is in the air and I am loving it! Fall is definitely my favorite season. What is your favorite season?

Today I am sharing my card for our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week itโ€™s a Card Makers Choice Challenge.  How fun is that!!


I was recently gifted some handmade paper by my friend Pattie Oisten and wanted to create my card using it. Here is what I created 


I started with a Lucky Limeade Card base and then a layer of Early Espresso. For the main layer I used a piece of kraft cardstock. I stamped the log cabin, from Rubberneckers, using early espresso Ink. I added the smoke from the chimney using my white primsa colored pencil and then distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  Next I die cut the landscape with trees using the memory box die Golf Club Landscape and snipped off the golf club image, leaving just the trees. I then inked the whole piece with versa mark and embossed with ultra thick embossing powder. After that cooled I used my white colored pencil and added touches of snow and then added this to my card right below the log cabin. Next I took the handmade paper and my stitched hill dies, purchased from eBay, and cut 3 layers of hills and added them to my card. If you look closely the Paper has added elements of glitter and tinsel which makes it really resemble snowy hills. I then cut more of the landscape with trees and snipped them apart and tucked them in behind the hills. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the SU set Winter Is Calling on early espresso cardstock and heat embossed in white and added to the bottom using dimensionals. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Until next time 

Happy Crafting ๐Ÿ™‚
