Scenic Greetings

Here's the other card we made at the workshop last Saturday.  I totally CASEd this card from Splitcoast Stampers, but I didn't use the brayer technique that was used in the original card HERE(I have yet to get satisfactory results with the brayer, but I know it's just a matter of practice.)

We did sponging instead, which I think produced as beautiful a card as the original, and was easier for the differing skill levels to handle.  I must say, I was really impressed with my stampers!  They all made awesome cards - none of the cards looked like newbies had made them!  This is how I feel about my stampin' ladies...

After cutting the Top Note from Shimmery White cardstock, we punched a circle from a sticky note to use as a mask for the moon.  Then we sponged Tempting Turquiose (getting lighter toward the bottom) and Night of Navy (down about half way) over it.  After removing the mask, we used a sponge dauber to add Crushed Curry to the moon.  Another sticky note was used to mask the sentiment on the Scenic Season stamp, because it was too long for the Top Note.  After inking up the stamp with Basic Black Craft ink, we removed the sticky and stamped the trees.  The sentiment, stamped in Basic Black Classic ink, is from the Snow Swirled set and fits perfectly!

  1. It's a beautiful card! I saw the original but was worried about my brayer-ing abilities. Thanks for sharing your sponging version.


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
