Hello, Tuesday! Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
I discovered an AMAZING stamper/blogger this weekend. Her name is Julia and her German blog is called derkleineklecks.blogspot.ch. I was so captivated by her use of texture, layout, and color. It inspired me to create this card.
I then created the starry background using distress inks on Neena Solar White cardstock. Once I had the distress inks blended to just how I like it, I splattered it with water to create those cool watermarks. I then created the stars (or snow ) with a white gel pen.
I mounted the woodgrain panel onto the distress ink panel with foam mounting tape.
I houses were cut from SU Crumb Cake cardstock using Ellen Hutson’s Home and Hearth die set. I used my white gel pen to add a little snow to their rooftops. I adhered the houses on a scrap piece of embroidered ribbon I had in my stash.
The word Peace was cut from SU Real Red cardstock using SU Christmas Greeting Thinlits. I cut it three times and layered them all together to create a super dimensional sentiment. The “on earth” is from Ellen Hutson’s Brushstroke Christmas stamp set, white embossed on black cardstock.
I put all those great pieces together and then mounted the whole scene on a SU Crumb Cake card base.
Then of course I had to embellish with a clean and crisp candy cane stripe ribbon, some glitter on the rooftops and around the star, and some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins. I have to say that these sequins are my absolute GO TO sequins! They come in different sizes and gives my projects just the perfect sparkle. I have a big bag of them and can never get enough.
Check out all the great detail and texture all of these elements can create all together…
So fun and so….well…”peaceful”. lol.
Hope you all check out Julia’s blog. It’s in German but there is a “Translate” button on the right margin. She is fabulous and I know you will fall in love with her.
Thank you for visiting me today. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed day.
