Biblical Impressions Blog Hop!
Welcome to the next stop on the Biblical Impressions blog hop! If you are arriving here from Jessica B.'s blog, then you are at the right place! If not, then head to the QKR Stampede blog for a complete hop order. This month’s theme is winter!
This was a fun card to make! First, I used a square punch on a scrap of paper, to give me a “frame” to stamp in; I also could have created a frame with four post it notes. I stamped the upper part of the pine grove repeatedly (re-inking only after stamping several times) inside the punched out area. Then I sponged blue ink for the sky, and removed the scrap. Next, I used white embossing ink to stamp the snowflakes repeatedly over the image (stamping off onto scrap paper before re-inking so as not to get colored ink mixed into the pad), deliberately allowing a little overlap into the white space of the card, and embossed with white embossing powder. I then embossed the Thank you in white, cut out the oval, then sponged the same blue ink over that. I used the cuttlebug to emboss a snowflake panel, which I then tore and glued to the panel, attaching the layered oval.
This could very easily be a card without layers. The thank you could be embossed right on the card, sponged over, then masked with an oval. Multiple snowflakes could be embossed in white down the side, the mask removed, and then the outer edges of the card sponged in blue.
Thank you for coming by, now it's on to Jessica S. for the next hop!
P.S. Jessica is going to mention the lack of snow we've had here in Western NY ... but it's coming down hard this morning! So pretty!
