Stampin Up Sunday … In the Pines cards

Today for Stampin Up Sunday I have some little cards I made a few weeks ago for the lovely ladies who joined me for some Christmas crafting via Zoom.

I went with 4×4 cards and then created a little scene using Distress oxide inks and embossing and the stamps and dies from the In the Pines set.

Love how cute these are… and such simple little cards to make using the snow bank dies and then the little tree.

The background I made using the splattered stamp with white embossing from the Gorgeous Grunge set. There is a snow stamp in the In the Pines set but for speed it was quicker to use the other one as it would go across the whole panel in one stamp!

After I stamped and embossed the snow I added a post it note circle and then used the Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers oxides before going over it with Black Soot to create a lovely night sky.

The snow banks I layered up, but first brushed the edge of them with a stencilling brush that had a pale blue ink residue on it. I just added a little definition.

The tree I stamped with Pear Pizazz and Mossy Meadow.

Once I had layered it up I then die cut it with the stitched shape square… I love this finish to the panel.

The card bases were made from Mossy Meadow which gave a nice rich finish to the little cards.

Happy crafting!
