Snow Front - Hand Stamped Sentiment #327 - a tutorial

I don't usually take part in Colour Challenges, but when I saw the colour combinations of the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments I knew immediately how I could combine them to make a card. 

The colours in the challenge:  Coastal Cabana, Shaded Spruce, and Real Red.  I used the stamp set Snow Front and include a free tutorial

Stamps:  Snow Front, Sailing Home
Inks:  Coastal Cabana, Real Red, Shaded Spruce, Black Memento
  • Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 by 11, scored at 5 1/2 to make a top fold card base
  • Real Red 4 by 5 1/4" - mat for card front
  • Whisper White 3 3/4 by 5 - image piece
  • Coastal Cabana 4 by 5 1/4" for inside
  • Whisper White 3 3/4 by 5" for inside - adhere on top of Coastal Cabana for message.
  • Brayer
  • Puff Paint
  • Stampin' Up Glitter
  • Shimmer Crystal Effects
Putting the Card together:
  1. Fold Thick Whisper White card base at score line and burnish with bone folder to form a top fold card.
  2. Add 4 by 5 1/4" Real Red card stock.
  3. Build scene on 3 3/4 by 5" piece of Whisper White.  First, brayer the sky with Coastal Cabana.  Tear a piece of copy paper to protect the lower part of the card while the sky is being brayered.  Apply a light coat of Coastal Cabana on the horizon, applying a darker layer towards the top.  At the very top, add a bit to Shaded Spruce to the Coastal Cabana for the darkest part of the sky. Stamp birds in the sky with Black Memento ink (Sailing Home stamp set)
  4. Stamp the mountain using Coastal Cabana ink
  5. Stamp cabin in Real Red and snowman in Coastal Cabana below cabin.
  6. Stamp numerous trees along mountain base, some in second and third generation stamping and at various levels using Shaded Spruce
  7. Stamp larger trees near bottom and near cabin.

       8.Add red cardinals on top of two trees and around snowman.
      9.Add puff paint and Stampin' Up glitter, and shimmer crystal effects on sheet of ice.
     10.Complete inside.
