Jessica’s Winter Skies Inspiration!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Inspiration Board challenge! I love the colors of the inspiration board and decided to use those as my inspiration today!

To start I placed a circle mask onto an A2 panel of Strathmore Bristol cardstock and then blended Peacock Feathers, Shaded Lilac, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire distress oxide ink onto the panel. I heat set the ink and then splattered it with water mixed with a little Liquid Stardust. Once that dried I splattered it with white gouache and set it aside to dry. When it was dry I removed the mask and colored the moon with Copic markers. Then I stamped Santa’s sleigh from Winter Skies with Versamark and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. If you look really carefully you can see the tiny dot of red berry Nuvo drops I added to Rudolph’s nose!

Next I stamped the cute fox and raccoon couple from Winter Skies with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I also stamped the sentiment onto Black Licorice cardstock with Versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to thin labels. I die-cut the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait with white cardstock and used Copic markers to color the tree to resemble a birch. I also die-cut a stitched hill from white cardstock and added a little shading. I adhered the hill behind the tree and then adhered that to my blended panel. Then I used foam mounting tape to add my sentiment and critters. Next I added a little Nuvo crystal glaze to the tree and sprinkled it with white puff embossing powder before heating it. The white puff really spreads with the crystal glaze. Then I went back and added more crystal glaze to the tree and scarves and sprinkled it with Chunky and Prisma glitter to finish the card with a little sparkle!

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!

  1. I was blown away by how different the Leafy Tree Backdrop looks when you colored the tree to look like a birch. Thank you for sharing your beautiful card.
