For all 3 cards I kept the same cool tone color pallet such as grays, purples and pinks as I was thinking about those snowy nights. So, for the first example I started by stamping the picture frame from the stamp set on a standard size white card panel with a copic friendy black ink. Then, I masked the hills and all around the frame so I could add more images inside the scene. Then I stamped and masked a few trees, so I could do a little bit of ink blending with distress oxide inks for the sky. Once I had all inked up the sky, I removed the mask and I colored the trees with copics trying to match the color that I used for the sky. Last but no least I stamped 2 of the reindeers and I colored them with brown tones copic markers. To finish it up with the stamping and coloring I used a white gel pen to add high lights.
For the layout of the card panel. I started by cutting down the previous card panel that I had with the stamping and coloring to W3.5 X H4.25 then I cut an A2 standard size card panel in Slate Gray color cardstock to adhere them both to a white card base as you can see in the picture above, in the meanwhile. I white heat embossed one of the sentiments on a piece of black cardstock. Once, I was done with that, I decided to add a little bit of interest by adding snow so for that I used textured paste and a stencil. To finish it up I added a few sequins and glitter gloss from the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer on all of the white spaces from the hills and for dimension I also added shimmer to the trees.
For the second example I created a snowy mountain scene. So I started exactly as I did for the first example. Although, this time I stamped and masked the mountains instead of the trees. Then I changed it a little bit by coloring the sky with a mix of Blues, Purples and Pinks copic markers instead of distress oxides inks. Then I used a white gel pen to add white dots creating big and small stars. And just to add shine I also added a few purple jewels and sequins.
I hope you can see how I white glitter heat embossed the hills and the tip of the mountains creating an illusion of sparkly snow. Also how I added a little bit of texture to the moon. Then I white heat embossed another sentiment from the stamp set in a piece of black cardstock. To finish it up I cut down the white card panel to the same size as the previous. But this time before adhering it to the slate gray color cardstock I added a piece of fun foam in between for dimension, then I adhered them both to a white card base.
For the last example I decided to showcase the scene inside of a white embossed frame by using an embossing folder. To begin with for this card, I started for stamping a few stars and the moon from the stamp set then I stamped and masked the mountains and the trees along with the house creating a cozy and warm scene. For the hills I added glitter heat embossing, I colored yellow the starts and moon. I colored with blue greens the trees and last but not least I colored with warm grays the mountains. Then for the sky I did the same as for the previous card. For the embossing of this card panel I started with a regular A2 size white card panel. But before the embossing I started by cutting the center of it. And for that I used a ruler and a X-acto knife ( for this step I kind of eyeballed 1/2 inch from the sides and 3/4 of the inch on top and bottom from the card panel to cut the inside part.)Then I ran the embossing folder in the die cutting machine creating the impression on the white card panel. To finish it up I white heat embossed 2 sentiments in a big piece of black cardstock. And, I adhered the embossed white panel on top of the stamped and colored scene with fun foam then I adhered the backed of it with strong adhesive to a Slate Gray color card base.
