Last August, I had the privilege of being a guest designer on the Trinity Stamps blog. I created cards for them using their wonderful stencils!
For this particular project, I used the Layered Birch Tree Stencil to create a serene snowy scene.
To see how I created these double heat embossed resist backgrounds, you can check out the step by step tutorial as well as the card I made for them, by clicking this link here.
I used one panel for a shaker card which is on the Trinity blog.
And with the other panel I created this card with a cute little bear and bird.
I stamped out the cute bear image from the A Partridge in a Bear Tree stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstock. I colored him and the little Partridge with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. I fussy cut him out and adhered him to the lower left of the scene. I also added a shadow below him using a Fantastix ink blending brush and Dark Night ink from Altenew.
I silver heat embossed the sentiment “A Partridge in a Bear Tree” from the same stamp set onto black cardstock and foam mounted it on the lower right of the panel.
I matted it with black cardstock and adhered to a gray 6″X6″ cardbase.
I hope this inspired you to try this technique and get you started on your Holiday and/or Winter cards – that is if you haven’t already!
Thank you for dropping by my blog (and the Trinity blog post)!
‘Til next time!
