A Wintry Window and a Sneak Peek!

Hello Friends!

This week, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps will be releasing some wonderful new stamps and today 's card offers you a sneak peak at two of those sets!

I started with sponging some Sage Shadow ink onto white cardstock,  then stamped the birch tree image in Versamark and embossed with white ep.  Detailing was added to the trees with an Early Espresso marker.  I die cut a window in white cs and then a window one size larger in Naturals Ivory cs. To add to the outdoorsy, forest theme, I colored this panel to resemble knotty pine, like that used in a cabin. I sponged Soft Suede ink to the ivory panel using a woodgrain mask.  Then I sponged Van Dyke brown ink over the entire ivory panel and adhered this panel to the white panel.  
A piece of clear cardstock was adhered to the back of the white window and then dimensional adhesive was added to the entire edge of the window opening.  A die cut deer and 'snow' were added to the window opening and then the birch tree background was adhered to the dimensional adhesive. 
The pine boughs and  pine cones were stamped from the cardinal image in the Christmas Joy set, watercolored and then fussy cut out and adhered to the top corner of the window frame. 
The sentiment is stamped on a piece of dp,  and linen thread and a button embellish the panel.  The panel is popped up on dimensionals.
And there you have it- a snowy, nature themed card!  This is such a versatile set; it can be used for Christmas cards, general winter themed cards, masculine cards, vacation/camping scrapbook pages, and, as the set was designed with sympathy sentiments, sympathy cards.  Now as I tend to be a outdoor kind of girl, who likes all thinks nature, hiking, camping and travel, this set will get a lot of use!
Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed week!
