Christmas Pines Winter Scene Card

Christmas Pines Stampin' Up!

Hello  Friends,

Did you see the super moon on Sunday?  The clear sky made it especially impressive.   It may not be a super moon, but  you can make a card with a moon using  ink, paper and a mask.  I stamped the scenery with the Christmas Pines stamp set.

Color Challenge

For this week's Splitcoast Stampers CC664 Color Challenge, Stef is the Hostess and she chose Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Pacific Point.  For dessert she chose Winter Sky and Winter Scene.   This challenge was way out of my comfort zone, but it's good to step out of your comfort zone from time to time.  Will you take the Challenge?  Find this week's Color Challenge here.

Masking Technique

Masking and Emboss Resist Stamping Techniques

To create today's scene, I  used 2 different stamping techniques.  The first technique is called Masking.  I cut a 2" Circle with the 2" Circle Punch from a Post It Note to create the moon.  Then, I sponged layers of Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Pacific Point to create the scene. 

The second technique is called Emboss Resist.  Both the snowflakes and the pine bough were embossed to resist the sponged on ink.  The embossing also prevents ink smears when sponging.
