Nature's Beauty Stamp Set for Wintry Scenes

Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty

I am such a fan of the two stamp sets I'm using today.  Winter Woods Stamp set is a Stampin' Up! carry-over from last year.  The new stamp form this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, Nature's Beauty, is simply images that are close to my heart.  My desk looks out our second-story window into the woods behind out home.  The wildlife in the back yard includes a herd of deer, rabbits and foxes, plus hawks, and other feather friends and an occasional coyote. I thoroughly enjoy creating my blog while looking over my own private haven of wildlife who come to visit towards sundown each evening.  The deer romp, and chase each other or just lounge on a grassy knoll among the trees.    While today's card is a wintry scene, it captures the feel most evenings in our back yard.  

The basecard for this card is Seaside Spray  Then the next layer is Night of Navy.  The image layer is Whisper White.  

An additional layer is created by sponging a rectangle of Seaside Spray onto the Whisper White layer.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a layer that I used as a mask to cover the rest of the Whisper White layer and sponged Seaside Spray ink on the cut-out opening in the mask layer.


Then I inked up the pine tree in the Winter Woods Stamp Set with Night of Navy ink and stamped the two trees.  I used some of the smaller trees from Nature's Beauty Stamp Set and Night of Navy ink to add more branches to the image layer.  

I then stamped the fox image from Nature's Beauty onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it out before popping it up on Dimensionals and adding it to the front of the card.

To complete the card, I stamp different sentiments from Rustic Retreat and Healing Hugs onto Crumb Cake cardstock in Night of Navy Ink.  

One additional benefit of purchasing the Nature's Beauty Stamp Set: $3 of your purchase goes to charity. Inspiration for today's card is from Lyssa Zwolanek from
