It’s a Winter Wonderland with Spirited Snowmen for Stinkin’ Inkers

It’s time to make a “Winter Wonderland” card for Stinkin’ Inkers‘ last challenge of 2018. This card is something I don’t do much but I really enjoyed making it – inky fingers and all! Spirited Snowmen is one of the cutest new stamp sets – I just love snowmen, don’t you?

My Secrets to Making This Spirited Snowmen Project

  • Making this winter wonderland scene was fun and quite easy. I used my Stamparatus to stamp the background trees twice across the Whisper White cardstock and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • After the embossing powder was completely cool, I began to add Blueberry Bushel and Merry Merlot inks lightly with my sponges over the piece of cardstock. Once the inks were well blended, I took a clean sponge and really rubbed across the embossed trees to take off all of the ink that had accumulated on them. It really brought out their sparkle!
  • The snowmen image was stamped and colored with Stampin’ Blends and watercolor pencils, then fussy cut.
  • I decided to try out the brand new White Velvet paper sheets to make the snow banks and liked them so much that I also used it to make the trees in the foreground from In the Woods Thinlits. The second photo does a pretty good job showing the texture it gives.

  4. I love this card.But, must admitt, I’m confused? Why did you list Night of Navy Ink Pad as well as Clear Wink of Stella? I also thought, we couldn’t use watercolor pencils and S. Blends with the same Black ink? I’m honestly NOT, trying to be funny! Iwanted to case your adorable card for a special friend and want to make it right! Thank you so much for sharing this delightful card with us!

  5. Hi Gloria! Night of Navy ink was used on the background with Merry Merlot to create the skyline. The Wink of Stella was used on the snow couple to make them glisten! I absolutely love to color an image with the Stampin’ Blends as a base color then lightly color it with a coordinating watercolor pencil for more color saturation. It won’t need much blending at all! I hope you will give it a try. I am always here to help if you need it.

  6. I love scenes and this is just beautiful. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.
