Flying reign deer


I had a busy day today. I got my house all cleaned and even had time to stamp. This card is made using the new Holiday Cheer stamp set by Gina K.
I created the wintry scene by first inking up the trees with versamark then Handsome Hunter. After stamping them on white pure luxury paper I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
The sky was added next. I used a circle punch from a post-it note to mask off the moon then brayered on the ink in this order: Going Gray, Starlet Silver, Pearlescent Ice Blue and Blue Bliss.
I removed the moon mask and brayered just a tiny bit of Going Gray and Blue Bliss so it wasn't so stark white.
The Starlet Silver and Pearlescent Ice Blue added a shimmer to the sky. The reign deer stamp was colored with Memento's Markers and stamped across the moon.
I used a few more post-it notes to cover the sky and to create the horizon. The horizon was sponged in with going gray. For the ground I used a combination of glitter snow, white liquid applique and dazzling diamonds. I used my heat tool to puff the liquid applique a bit. Before heating I sprinkled dazzling diamond on it to help keep the puff down. The liquid applique with dazzling diamonds was also added to the trees to make them snow covered.
I wanted to add a few snowflakes in the sky so I stamped the smallest snowflake in the Holiday Hospitality set with moonlight white ink.
Here is how I finished the inside of the card. The sentiment is from Holiday Greetings.

I was asked to share how I made the Halloween Treat Holder. I found a video that shows you how to make it here. I wish I would have found this before I made mine! If you do make when let me know, I would love to see it!

Have a wonderful rest of your evening.

It is so pretty how you did the inside of the card too. This is something I have to work on, all of mine are blank,hehehe. It would be nice if I had some that were actually ready to go so I am not so late with everything. Thanks for the inspiration and motivation.
