Outside of window

I had a super busy weekend. This card I made many days ago. But  I just found time to finish my blog today.

I thought I can made window card. After I bought this pretty window, I never had chance to use it.

I sponged the background(outside of window) first. And embossed the Santa Sleigh. I fussy cut the two piece of snow banks. I added the glue along the snow bank and stuck some glitter.

I attached the window on the background by foam strip. I whisper white is too white in here. So I used new light crumble cake alcohol marker colored all window frame.

Finally I stamped the sentiment on the cardbase.

Snowy day

My daughter really hope we will have snow this winter. Actually every year she has the same wish, but in Texas it's not dream coming true every year. So I thought I could make a snowy day forest card fro her.

I chose the heavy weight watercolor paper for background. I water washed the sky first and drew the the trees by the flat top watercolor brush. After dry, I stamped the Hero Arts layering trees (the one is on the right up corner ) over my water-colored trees to add more dimension. I also watercolor the snow bank and tree shadow. I just made a little ice under the right tree.

I stamped the snow all over panel and embossed by white embossing powder. I die cut the deer and colored it by Blick studio markers dark umber and light umber. I also added the white dots on its body. The I used the foam to stuck the deer on the card.

I added the round red dots on the tree like berry from my stash.

I just ordered this Painter's Palette stamp set. I found I really like this stamp because I can add any paint on the frame. 

Today I painted the Lovely as a tree on the watercolor paper. I used the water base marker directly color the trees on the stamp. Then I embossed all images by clear embossing powder. At this time, Misti was very useful. 

Then I water washed the sky and added the same color on the tree leaves, trucks and ground. 

I stamped the easel and sentiment on the Sahara Sand cardstock by Early Espresso. Then I cut out the easel center part. I stuck the painting behind the frame by foam tape.

Winter village

Thanksgiving is great time to shop. I bought this penny black winter village die set. It's very funny die.

For background, I used the Lindy's gang spring color. Beautiful color. After dry, I wrote the white dots on the sky by white pen. Also I embossed the sentiment on the sky by silver embossing powder.

Thinking of you

Today I made a very simple card. At beginning, I want to make a winter scene with snow. But in this stamp set I never used this lonely tree. So I changed my mind to use this lonely tree to make a card. Also out of my window it’s still fall season. Leaves just started to turn yellow and fell down.

I watercolor background by Stampin Up ink twice. After dry I stamped the tree and sentiment on it.

Take your time

This stamp set made me remember park in south of China. Summer time, we sat on the bamboo chairs that was under the bamboo, drank the tea and watched the pretty lotus on the water. I felt I was back home.

I made this card. I only used three colors green, blue and grey. I skipped the red lotus. Red is too bright and pink is too pale.  I just want my card kept the cool color.

I stamped the bamboo and stone on the white Bristol cardstock. Then I watercolored it. I didn’t choose the watercolor paper this time. Just because wanted to try my new Bristol paper. I thought it was good.

After dry, I used the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die cut the paper and mounted on the kraft cardbase.

Winter Land

I watched the PB&J YouTube video to show how to make this winter land card. She made it so beautiful. After I watched her video, I ordered this stamp set and today I made a copy.

I used the Misti to stamp the all images by Ranger Archival ink water can. I can added any deep color over it. I used the Tombow brush marker color the bare tree branch to brown.

Then I embossed the all images by clear embossing powder. Misti is very useful this time.

I started to sponge the sky, sun and lake. I used the snow marker add the snow on the ground and branch.
The snow marker is very fun to use. You just draw anywhere you like to add snow. Then use the heat gun to heat it. You will get snow texture.

I didn't add any sentiment for this card because I didn't know what I will use for. So I leave it blank.
