LeAnn’s World challenge

I just had time to get an entry into the progressive challenge over on the LeAnn’s World 101 Facebook page. This time I have mixed digital and traditional stamping on the same card.

Materials used:
LeAnn’s World 101 – Stewart (Facebook Freebie until 28/11/18)

Having reversed the image and arranging it on the page I printed it out twice, once on ordinary printer paper and again on X-Press It card. I fussy cut the paper version down the left side and made it into a mask. I attached the mask to the card version of the image before stamping out the trees.

I have used the tree stamp 3 times to form the tree taking each one just a little higher than the previous one and lining up the trunks as best as I could. I need to make the tree taller and as it is a physical stamp rather than digital had to work out a way of doing so. Overall I think it worked quite well. I must confess that the little bush is there to hide a black splodge, I dropped the inked up tree stamp, whoops!

Once coloured in I cut the image with the die then stamped on the sentiment. I have added just a little glitter glue to some of the tree branches and on the snow at the bottom to make it look like frost.

The snowflake embellishments have been die cut from silver mirri card.

This blog will be moving over to  a new site at the end of the year. At the moment I am posting on both sites. If you would still like to follow me in the new year please head on over to the new address here and click whatever you need to click to keep getting the posts. Thank you so much.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
