Little Paper Shop DT Challenge

So this months challenge for the Design Team was to create a card using at least 2 Little Paper Shop Stamp sets. SO I used Swirls and Snow Flakes...Love both of these sets and so I knew I had to combine them! Love how it turned out too, it's soooo shimmery and pretty! Gotta Love Glitter!

I also took the oppertunity to play along with SCS and their inspiration challenge held on Saturdays. Todays IC154 was inspired by some gorgeous felt scraves at The Felted Garden. The colors in the scarves below are what did it for me...although I did add some More mustard for the moon...or sun whichever pleases you! LOL
Here is what I did...
I started with a piece of whisper white cardstock that measures 5 x 3.75 and then I used a p ost it note and punched out a 1 3/8 circle punch and used the hole as my template. Using a sponge dauber I inked it up with more mustard classic ink and rubbed around the circle...leaving some white space for thr shadowing. I then created a hilly mask using a piece of computer paper and the circle cutout to cover my mustard sun/moon. I then used a sponge and some Baja Breeze ink and in circular motions covered the whole thing...when you remove the masked paper it looks like a snowy hill...add some glitter and you're done...gorgeousness in seconds!
Stamps: Swirls and Snowflakes sets by Little Paper Shop
Paper: Baja Breeze, retired DS paper, whisper white
Ink: More mustard, baja Breeze, stazon black
Accessories: post it nore, copy paper, glitter, 1 3/8 circle punch
If you have any questions please let me know! This was one of the techniques I saw a regionals..although an oldie it's good to be reminded what we can do with simple supplies!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
May God bless you today and Always!
