Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Friendly Silhouette Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s wee been going?  We’re already halfway through.  Did you all have a chance to hop around yesterday with Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop and see all the beautiful projects my team members made? If not, you can still go back to yesterday’s blog and hop around.

For today’s card I did a technique that I haven’t done before (at least I don’t think I have.  I used my Sponge Brayer to make the background on my card.  I usually do the sponging technique using my Stamping Sponges, but I thought I’d try something new.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges today.  1st off I joined in with As You See It Challenge #208.  Their challenge is a Night Glow Color Challenge.  Here are their colors.

Nest I played along with Fab Friday Challenge #171.  Here is their sketch

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #127.  They have a Theme challenge this week.  Their theme is “Create a Scene”.

I started by using my Sponge Brayer and adding color slowly to a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I started with the bottom and added Mango Melody Ink.  I worked my way up and next used Coastal Cabana Ink.  On the top of the panel I used my Sponge Brayer with Pretty Peacock Ink.  After I was done adding the amount of color that I wanted, I stamped the multiple tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the panel.

I cut 2 of the trees out from the In The Woods Dies from Basic Black cardstock and adhered them to either side of my card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I then cut the grassy cat tail die from the Friendly Silhouettes Dies out of Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to my card front using my Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana mat using Snail

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a thin Mango Melody strip of cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Coastal Cabana Glimmer Enamel Dot to the sentiment.  I made a tiny bow from the Pretty Peacock/Old Olive 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon and adhered it to the sentiment using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the card front to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on either side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the panel in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set on either side of the envelope front and on the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

  1. Lovely sponging job, Karen! And the Winter Woods trees makes great silhouettes against that background, along with your grass die cuts. If that’s your first time using the sponge brayer, you did a masterful job! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges.
