Changing Seasons

Turning Summer into Winter.
Cabin amongst the Pines from Kitchen Sink Stamps

Last week, I shared a card using the stamp sets, Multi-Step Cabin by the Lake and Multi-Step Pine Trees paired together to create a cozy, summer scene. Using two of the new sets from yesterday’s release, Multi-Step Snowy Cabin, and Multi-Step Icy Pond, along with Multi-Step Snowy Pine Trees, now that same little cabin can be used to create a frosty winter wonderland.

I made a change in the cabin. Besides adding a wreath to the door, I separated the roof from the cabin “walls”. This would make it easier to add snowy “accents” to the roof as shown on my card above. First I stamped the cabin (#b) and then the roof (#a). Stamping Step #2b with London Fog. Then I stamped Step #1b with VersaMark and added embossing powder  – Kaleidoscope for a sparkling, icy looking roof.

With my Icy Pond card … no masking was needed. The mini snowy pine trees can overlap each other. Finished most of the tree clusters by using Step #1 to add snow …by stamping with VersaMark and adding embossing powder  – Winter Wonderland.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a happy inky day!

A Country Christmas Card

 You can never start too early to start making Christmas cards … I really should probably start in January! 😉

The card below was from Sneak Peek #3 – to show KSS’ new sentiment set, Greeting from the Woods. It was my hope that this set would serve as a multi-season set … not just summer with the Cabin set, but for the Holidays too. 🙂
