Season's Greetings - Snowy Hills

Yogi here today with a snowy hills tutorial. This is something I taught the gals at our last get together how to do. Simple and effective...


I'm using  an A Way With Words dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Season's Greetings" also available on Quietfire Design HERE



Scored, and folded my purple card (5"w x 7"h).

Created the Snowy Hills (see step by step pics below). Trimmed down, stamped the bare branches (Penny Black) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, then adhered to card front.

Cut a piece of white pearlized textured cardstock, slightly smaller than my card base. Cut a window and adhered to card front with 3D foam tape. Adhered a bunch of mauve and purple rhinestones.

You may recognize the cardstock I used to die cut the "Season's Greetings" - packaging from Dream Weaver stencils...Adhered to frame.

Step 1:
Punched a 1" circle to create my moon mask. Adhered to my 5"w x 7"h cardstock with removable tape.

Cut a wavy piece of cardstock to act as my mask for the hills.
Sponged all over the upper area with "Broken China".

Please note: I use dirty sponges so my colors are not true. The blue sponge has various other blues mixed in giving a unique color. 


Then went in with "Chipped Sapphire" in the upper sky area. and some "Picked Raspberry" near the hills.
Moved the hill mask down and sponged with the broken china and picked raspberry, leaving a white are near the top of the hill.



Continue moving the stencil, flipping it or whatever to get the hilly look you want.

 


Continue to the bottom of your cardstock or as far as you want to go. When done, remove the punched moon. Stamp with a pleasing image.
