Winnie and Walter / Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

Today, a bunch of us are combining products from both companies to provide you with a whole heap of inspiration! Here’s my card:

This was so unbelievably quick to create (after I’d spent hours thinking about what I was going to come up with!). I created a snow bank using the curved edge die from Stitched Borders 1 and used it as a template to draw a guideline on my card base. Then I took the solid, round image from A Tree for all Seasons and inked it up with some Distress Inks – I spritzed lightly with water before making an impression on the card, as I wanted to make sure I got good transfer…

I randomly stamped the circles in different colours and set aside to dry before stamping over them with the tree image from the same set.

Finally, I stamped the small birds in the trees, again all from the same set. I went over all the black stamped areas with the Clear Wink of Stella – looks really sparkly in real life, but I couldn’t get a decent picture! To finish up, I took the snow bank and inked up the edge with some Tumbled Glass, and lined with Silver Wink of Stella.

I stamped the sentiment on the snow bank and foam mounted it to the card base. Then I sprinkled a few Sparkling Clear and Metallic Gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

    I had to chuckle when I saw the colors of your trees – I don’t know if you noticed, but you mirrored the colors of the W&W logo. It looks absolutely lovely! I personally struggle to think outside of the box sometimes, and so I love how you applied some colors to the trees one might not normally see. Such a happy and vibrant card!
