Warm Winter Wishes
Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! I am so pleased to welcome the fantastic Heather Hoffman as a guest blogger on our store blog. I just fell in love with this new Season’s Tweetings stamp set from Winnie & Walter, and asked Heather if she might be able to make something special for us to share on the blog featuring it. I love how she incorporated our very popular Birch Tree window die cut for a truly adorable winter scene! Be sure to read on and enjoy!
Good morning! Heather here this morning – and I’m delighted to be guesting here on the Simon Says Stamp Blog with a fun and wintry card combining some beautiful SSS Exclusive Dies, and some adorable new stamps from Winnie and Walter!
I started off by creating a background for my card using one of my favorite SSS Dies – Birch Tree Window Wafer Die, and backed it with sparkly silver cardstock. I also die cut a couple pieces of white cardstock using SSS Wavy Scallop Stitches Wafer Dies and coated them with Ranger Multi Medium Matte then sprinkled with Rock Candy Distress Glitter for some sparkly snowdrifts.
While that dried, I stamped out my adorable little birdies from Winnie and Walter’s Season’s Tweetings, colored them in with Copic Markers, and fussy cut them out. I grabbed a sentiment from Winnie and Walter’s Sentimental Winter and heat embossed it in white on some Slate Gray Cardstock and trimmed into a banner shape.
Finally, I assembled all the layers onto a top folding cardbase that I created using SSS Sea Glass Cardstock, using foam adhesive for the birdies, the front layer of snow, and the sentiment. Finished off with a few snowflake sequins from Pretty Pink Posh’s Snowflake Sequin Mix!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
