Crafty Individuals Winter Wonderland challenge

The Crafty Individuals Challenge for November is Winter Wonderland. No traditional Christmas red and green for this one as I am quite bored with this color scheme. I  chose white and blues and greens... The stamps used are from CI- 209, I love these trees stamps and thought that in white they just cried out Snow!

For the base of the card, I (dry) embossed some snowflakes which I highlighted with distress inks. For the main image, I stamped and embossed several trees on white card, then applied distress inks in blue and green. Around the trees, to give them definition, I placed dark colours with markers and a water brush.

Thanks for taking a look,


  1. A clever use of the trees stamps - with a lovely wintery feel to it. Thanks so much for joining in the Crafty Individuals Challenge this month. Jean

  2. Hi
    You definitely created a Winter Wonderland for the CI trees. Beautiful.
    Thank you for joining us at the Crafty Individuals challenge.

  3. Lovely card and clever to ink around the embossed trees. I have used the same stamp on my challenge - not quite finished it yet though - and it is totally different to yours. So many ways of using these tree stamps.
