Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Nature’s Beauty

For our penultimate Card & Cuppa sessions of 2019, I reached for the fabulous Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set to create this snowy scene.

I love that £2.50 from every sale of this Stamp Set goes towards mental health organisations. So, for just £20, you receive a stunning Stamp Set, and help others too.

To begin with, the attendees had to make the decision between Whisper White or Very Vanilla for their project. I made one in both and still can’t decide which one I prefer.

Here is the same project in Very Vanilla.

Next, one side of the Grid Paper is ripped to create a snow drift effect. Then, a punched circle mask is added to the cardstock to create a moon.

Using a Sponge Brayer and Night of Navy ink, the cardstock is coloured to create a winter night sky.

Here is the Whisper White version.

And the Very Vanilla version.

Stars, from the Christmas Countdown Stamp Set are then dotted across the sky.

With the moon and snow masks removed, trees and grass are then stamped in Basic Gray. The beautiful fox, also stamped in Basic Gray and coloured with Watercolor Pencils is cut out and attached using Dimensionals.

Finally, using the very tip, dots of Wink of Stella are added to some of the stars to create a sparkly sky.

I really love this card and already know who is going to be receiving both of mine.

Are you team Whisper White or team Very Vanilla?
