Welcome to the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop! It is actually beginning to feel like winter (at night) in South Texas! At 2 pm, the outside temperature is 82, with humidity at 67%, so it feels like 86 degrees. However, it will get into the upper 60’s during the night! HA! Growing up in northern Illinois, it does not feel a BIT like winter! Even so, it is winter, and I have a wintery card for you today.
Even though I have lived in Texas since 1981, I still remember the scenes of a snowy winter. As you may know, the Peaceful Cabin bundle is soon retiring, and I want to show how this is much more than a Christmas set. Take a look at the various sentiments in the stamp set and see that they can be used for best wishes, kindness, and thanks. There is still time to take a second look at this bundle and order it before it is gone.
Details of the Winter Scene:
I started with an Evening Evergreen card base. Evening Evergreen ink was used to stamp the set of pine trees onto a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Basic White cardstock (CS) and die-cut them with the corresponding die. Then, three other tall, thin pines are die-cut from Evening Evergreen CS. I used Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the cabin image onto a Cork Specialty sheet and die-cut it with the upper outline. I rounded the bottom edges of the cork, but I could have cut it away altogether, trimming close to the cabin’s edges.
Several dimensionals are on the back of the snow and tree panel and the cabin; however, the added dimension is somewhat lost in a photograph. The two small fence pieces, cut from the cork paper and the Evening Evergreen trees, are the only pieces glued directly down. I originally stamped the sentiment directly onto the Basic White panel, but, like everyone else, I sometimes stamp things crooked. So, I added the sentiment with glue dots after re-stamping and die-cutting with a Beautiful Trees die. The final touch is a 2021-2023 In Color Jewel on the sentiment layer.
An Up-Close Look:
It is most difficult for me to get a good photograph that shows added Wink of Stella on a card, but I think you can see it here, in the glistening snow on the hill and the trees. There is even some Wink of Stella on the cabin but, it is not easy to see. I hope you like my card today. Now it is time to click on the link following mine to see what the ultra-talented Sharon Hashimoto Burkert has to inspire you! Have a great rest of your week!
