Rooted In Nature Glycerine Background Technique

Hello Happy Stampers,

Today I am sharing a technique that may not be new but was new to me.  I watched a video by Gail O'Neill on YouTube that explained the technique very well and you can view it HERE.

I made a similar card but changed it up just a bit.  I added Frost White Shimmer Paint and used White Craft ink for the ground because I was going for a Christmas look and for some reason I'm stuck with the thought that snow and Christmas go together even though Bethlehem where Christ was born was probably a warm tropical climate.  Maybe that's because I've been hooked on the song by Bing Crosby "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" since I was a wee little lamb.  I also used a different color for the sky and added "snow falling"

Anyway, here is a picture of today's card.

Rooted In Nature Christmas

The technique for the background uses Glycerine gel and it makes the background very smooth.  I really like the look and will be using it more in the future for this type of application.

There are some tricks to how it is done so I encourage you to check out my These Are My Stamps site to see what those are.  There you will find printable instructions with pictures and a complete supplies list.

 

I hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by,

Kate

 

Winter Woods

I have two versions of the same card for you today.  I was watching technique videos on youtube the other day and just had to give one of them a try.  So version one, super simple and to find out how the trees got that white snowy look you'll have to check out my These are My Stamps site.

And moving on to version two.  For this one I utilized the Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to add a beautiful glittery look to the card because after all what is Christmas with out "bling".

Let me know which one you like best, that is, if you can even choose because they are both equally beautiful.

As always, instructions, measurements etc can be found on my These Are My Stamps site so check it out.

Merry Christmas To All In The Woods

I cased this card because it was just too lovely not to.  The combination of Real Red and Smokey Slate inks is really stunning and adding the Crumb Cake tree with a few rhinestones colored with the Real Red blends marker.  And I love the sentiment from Merry Christmas to All stamp set.  You can see the printable supplies list and instruction on my These Are My Stamps site.

Thanks for stopping by.

It's time for an old fashioned red and white Christmas card.  This one uses the Merry Christmas and Blizzard Thinlits.
