Inspired by the Snowy Trees

the inspiration: Southern Wisconsin got hit with a major snow storm this weekend. Husband said he plowed at least 8 inches from the driveway. Good thing we have a tractor with a blade on it. But it sure is pretty when everything has that new coat of fresh snow. This picture is from the back of the farm house looking at the chicken house. That big birch was just a sapling when we moved here, its amazing how its grown. Of course its roots are probably well fertilized growing under the chicken yard!

It was really pretty coming down last night too so I tried to make my card capture the way the sky looked last night. These trees from Lovely as a Tree were the perfect stamp choice. I stamped them in Staz-On. To create the moon I punched a 1" circle from scrap paper and tacked it down with Dotto  and then sponged Marina Mist above the ground. Dotto is a great product. It is a temporary adhesive created to be repositionable, made especially for scrapbookers. When you are making a scrap book page you can use the dotto to tack photos to the page as you play with layers and embellishments. Because its repositionable you can easily play with your lay-outs.

I finished off the focal point by covering the image in Versamark and adding some Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. This inexpensive product is great for snowy scenes. The card base is Night of Navy.  I used Versamark with the background stamp: French Filigree to create the illusion of the windy night.  Now its time to go out and play in the fluffy white stuff. 

As always, contact me if you want more information about any of these products, whether you want to buy them or just want more information. Orders usually take about 8 days, but with the holiday volume there are no guarantees. You can order on-line yourself from my website or contact me to place an order.
