WMSC #18 & Paper Players #19


Hello!  My post is a little late today, but hopefully in time for the latest Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  I received some happy mail yesterday with my first order of Waltzingmouse stamps, so I couldn't wait to try them out!  I also used the colors of a new-to-me challenge, the Paper Players, which I found through my blogging buddy and guest DT member Nance.


I was inspired by the photo at Paper Players to create a winter scene , and I thought it would be fun to stamp the Teeny Trees in red and black for a bold and whimsical look.  It's a very different look for me, and I kind of like it!

I stamped one of the trees three times, cutting out two of the trees to layer over the first.  The circle ornaments on the trees are from a single stamp, so they were easy to add.  I sprinkled them with a tiny bit of glitter and added Glossy Accents for shine.

To create a snowy scene, I cut two hills from white cardstock and added glitter along the top edges using a two-way glue pen.  I used foam adhesive on one hill and tree to add some dimension.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, True Black, white)
Stamps:  Waltzingmouse (Teeny Trees)
Ink:  Clearsnap (Cranberry), Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools:  Fiskars (hole punch)
Accessories:  Ranger (Glossy Accents), Jo-Ann (clear glitter), Me & My Big Ideas (rhinestones), Michaels (ribbon)

And a peek at the inside:


Thanks for stopping by tonight, and for your fabulous comments!  They are truly appreciated!
