For today’s release, the design team is showcasing the Newton’s Toboggan stamp set and coordinating dies with the Mountains Stencil.
To begin, I stamped my image on some Neenah solar white card stock. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers and die-cut the image using the coordinating dies.
I cut some Bristol smooth white card stock measuring 4 1/4 X 8 1/2. I ink-blended my background with some distress oxide ink. I also used the Mountains Stencil to create my snowy-mountains on the background. I used Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel in White to create the snow and set this piece aside for about half an hour until it dried. I adhered this piece on a 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 slimline card base.
I stamped the trees using the Winter Memories stamp set with some Noble Fir and Celery Stick inks. I used the Hills and Grass stencil to create my snowbank and adhered my focal image on the foreground.
I used some white Copic Opaque paint to splatter it all over my card to create the snowy look for added texture, and stamped the snowflakes using some Mermaid ink.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the winter Memories stamp set with some Lobster ink.
I know you can’t really tell on the photo but the Glitz Glitter Gel that I added really made the snow pop! It’s so pretty in real life. Here’s a closer look:
