Blue Christmas with Stampin' Up!


While the promotion lasts, I'm starting each of my posts with the Sale-A-Bration reminder about the fantastic opportunity to join Stampin Up and benefit from all the advantages of being a "demonstrator". I would love you to join with me and my team - we have fun, share ideas and our enjoyment of stamping and paper craft. And don't forget the free products with every $90 you spend.

Today's card is a simple, yet beautiful Christmas card using a retired set featuring pine trees. You could easily replicate this  by using a tree from the "Lovely As A Tree" set by Stampin' Up!


The technique involves the stamping off method, and I used both Night of Navy and  Marina Mist inks.  I also used a mask to delineate the ground line when stamping the most distant trees as I only wanted the upper halves of them. Once the darker trees in the foreground were stamped I used an Aqua Painter to soften the ground lines.


When all the stamping and layering was complete I ran the card though the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Embossing folder. I find using texture on the surface really adds dimension to the card .
 

To finish off I used some of the gorgeous silver ribbon, available as a free gift via Sale-A-Bration at Stampin' Up! This ribbon comes in a pack of 2 spools - 1 gold and 1 silver. It is beautiful soft ribbon that is easy to tie and you can choose it or any other SAB item with each $90 of orders you make before March 31, 2017

I did not feel any need to add a greeting to this card as the image is lovely in it's own right.

 Thank you for looking - I hope you enjoy the card.

I cannot finish this post without offering each of you a fabulous opportunity to join Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration. You get all the benefits of being a member of the SU family plus during SAB you can choose 2 additional free stamp sets of your choice. Depending on your choice this can be well over $100 of stamps for free and that is in addition to all the heavily discounted items you choose for your Starter Kit.
Do you like what you see and think you'd like to earn some extra income from stamping?  
If you are looking for a hobby, a part or full time job, working from home and at your own pace, AND you love craft, then you should consider doing what I do. It is fun and rewarding.
