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!

Jess

She has been inspiring us for quite a while now and we are so impressed with her amazing designs! You can find her on Instagram as @karalynne88 and at her blog, Bright Hope Creations!

Kara‘s sky is seriously spectacular! She created a pull-tab card using the airplane and banner from Simply Celebrate Spring! Those puffy clouds look a lot like some Lawn Fawn critters! Kara stamped the images in light blue ink and did some incredible no-line coloring!

The Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On allows the cute little plane to cross the sky with a fun sentiment from Elphie Selfie! See if you can spot which sets these cloud critters are from and leave us a comment below!

Now let’s check out the inspiration from our amazing Design Team!

Jessica‘s amazing night sky is so perfect for her tall slimline card design! She added an Upon a Star fox and sentiment and a pretty Forest Border silhouette!

Christy created a whimsical little scene with Butterfly Kisses! What is more spectacular that a sky filled with butterflies!

Franci‘s fabulous space themed sky is filled with Out of this World planets and a cute little astronaut! I love this view through the spaceship window!

Who says the sky has to be blue! Joyce‘s sky is filled with happy color and happy birds! The little bunny from Coaster Critters looks adorable flying the plane from Plane and Simple!

Grace took the Butterfly Kisses critters out of the meadow and placed them among the clouds in this Center Picture Window Card design!

These amazing clouds and beautiful rainbow are perfect in Samantha‘s sunny yellow sky! The adorable little Winter Unicorn (without her winter scarf) looks right at home in the dreamy backdrop!

The Winter Skies bear couple are enjoying the dramatic sky on Karin‘s beautiful Reveal Wheel card! I love the splatters of gold in the sky!

Samantha‘s sky is filled with raindrops from the Rainy Backdrop but the cute little Butterfly Kisses bunny sees the rainbow! She used an umbrella from Hello Baby and the little rainbow from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters!

Leave it to our beach-loving friend Jenn to create a card filled with a gorgeous sunny sky! She combined lots of new Summer 2019 products including Sunray Backdrop, Hammock and Trees, On the Beach and Hello Border!
