11.03.18…..The title of this blog post should really be “enjoy the seasons” (…instead of “season”). I know many people have a favorite season, but I just really do love both the Fall and Winter seasons equally! That being said, I wrapped both seasons up in this one little card, and used a mix of seasonal products. The Country Lane Designer Series Paper has an Autumn Harvest feel, while the Winter Woods Bundle obviously has a Winter theme.
I used the Corrugated Textured Impressions Embossing Folder along with Crumb Cake Cardstock, and adhered it to the Gray Granite Cardstock base. Layer on top of that are two pieces of Country Lane Designer Series Paper. The trees (from the Winter Woods stamp set) were stamped with my Gray Granite Classic Stampin’ Pad, on Whisper White Cardstock. I also adding some speckling, using the wide tip of my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, and flicking it on the edge of the marker cap.
The trees were die cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper, using the In the Woods Framelits. After adding the Braided Linen Trim, I frayed the ends to add a bit more texture. The sentiment (from the Hearts Come Home stamp set) was stamped on Crumb Cake Cardstock, using my Gray Granite Classic Stampin’ Pad. After I cut out the words, I distressed the paper, and then popped them up with a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The last little detail I added was a few of the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets (…love these!).
TIP: To add a bit (…or a lot) of speckling to your projects, use the wide end of a Stampin’ Write Marker and flick it on the edge of the marker cap at an angle, aiming towards your paper. You may want to practice on some paper scraps first, just to get the feel of it.
