"Snow Front" Card Tutorial and Kitty Update!


Hi Friends! I hope you had a nice weekend! Well, this may come as no surprise, but we've decided to keep this little kitty! There is no way we can part with it - he has us all under his spell. If you haven't read my story about this little bundle of love - click here


Kitty has found his forever home with us, and we finally decided on his name - "Forest". One, because I found him in the forest. Two, because 'he was running' (remember the movie "Forest Gump'?to me when I called out to him. Forest has already fit in with our family perfectly, including with our other furkids, as you can see from the above photo with Cooper! Forest is unbelievably loving, calm and quiet, cuddly and so sweet. He follows me everywhere. I am so happy I found him!

So onto today's card! I'm sharing a tutorial with you that features one of my favourite stamp sets, "Snow Front".  These stamps are so much fun to create with!

Supplies:
  • Stamp SetsSnow Front (150483); Itty Bitty Christmas (150513)
  • Card Stock – Mossy Meadow (133676); Night of Navy (100867); Shimmery White (101910)
  • Stamp Pads – Night of Navy (14710); Mossy Meadow (147111); Seaside Spray (150085); Early Espresso (147114)
  • Misc. – Stamping Sponges (141337); Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430); Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110756)
Measurements:
  • Mossy Meadow: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4 ¼”
  • Night of Navy: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Shimmery White: 3-3/4” x 5” and 4” x 5-1/4” (inside of card, optional)
Instructions:

  1. Fold the Mossy Meadow cardstock In half to create your base card.
  2. Stamp the cabin using Early Espresso ink in the middle of the 3-3/4” x 5” piece of Shimmery White cardstock.
  3. Stamp the trees to the right of the cabin using Mossy Meadow ink. Stamp the trees again to the left of cabin using the same stamp & ink. Use the “narrow hill” stamp just below the trees to fill in the tree line.
  4. Using Early Espresso ink, stamp the sentiment just below right trees.
  5. Cut one of the Sponge in half, then in half again so that you have a quarter of a sponge. Using Seaside Spray ink, carefully sponge all the way down to the tree line, being careful to not get any inside on the cabin roof.
  6. Using Night of Navy ink and a new quarter sponge, add Night of Navy ink in small swirls, starting at the top and working down to the bottom. Don’t add Night of Navy ink all the way down to the tree line; leaving space around the cabin/trees so that only the Seaside Spray ink shows. Repeat as needed.
  7. Adhere to the Night of Navy mat and then adhere to base card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I've got some videos that I'm currently working on for you and will be sharing them with you this week!

Enjoy the day & HAPPY STAMPING!
