Merry Monday #84

IMG_0537

This week's Merry Monday challenge is to use a tree with some bling on your card. I decided to go with a very simple design this week (wow, this may be the first card I haven't colored in months!), and make a wintry scene of trees at night. Nothing better for bling on a wintry scene than some glistening, glittery snow in my opinion!

First I created my night sky, by sticking a punch circle of paper in place for a moon, then sponging ink all over. I used Marina Mist and Night of Navy, both from Stampin' Up!. Then I pulled off my moon shape to reveal the night sky. As you can see I did darker at the top and lighter toward the ground, like the moon is shining down almost.

I used the Snow Scenes set from Flourishes, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped a few of the Christmas trees off onto scrap paper first so they could be the shadowy trees in the background. 

To finish it off I took some pieces of white card stock and tore them in "hilly" fashion, added some glue and glitter and done! All in all I think this card took maybe 15 minutes to create? This would be a perfect assembly line card for someone who needs to make lots fast!

  1. Absolutely gorgeous!! Love your sponged night sky … and the rows of trees are wonderful, especially like the second generation stamping to add depth. Your glittery snowbanks gives lot of sparkle and shine. Thanks for joining us at Merry Monday.

  2. Just gorgeous Kerin! Love the pretty scene and I can’t believe you made it so quickly. The moon glow and sponging are perfect. I think I need to go check out Flourishes now and check into this great stamp. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Beautiful! Flourishes makes the best tree stamps! What a soft, serene scene you have created! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Merry Monday challenge!
