Peaceful Winter

Hello! Thought I would show you what I made for SCS's Featured Stamper challenge today. *StampingPam* has an awesome gallery and I got my inspiration from her card here:

I used a pre-folded glossy card from for the base. I stamped the moon in craft white pigment ink, then embossed it with white embossing powder. I then rubbed purely pomegranate, pretty in pink and whisper white water-based dye inks by Stampin' Up across it to create a sky effect, then easily wiping excess ink from moon. I stamped the stamp set "Lovely As A Tree" from SU! in craft white again and repeated the same embossing technique as above. I sponged pomegranate very lightly sporadically on the trees for highlights, then matted them on two layers of cardstock. I popped the image on dimensionals, then stamped "Peace" from Stampendous on the bottom (I also embossed this in clear ep.) The stitched ribbon was placed behind the scene and I added diamond stickles to the moon, ground and trees.

If you haven't already, check out Pam's gallery over at SCS today and make your card case too! It's so inspiring! ~Hugs and Happy Stamping~
