House in the Woods

Hello Friends!

Happy New Year to y'all! With a new month comes a new challenge at House of Cards. Before I get to the challenge here is my card for this New Year's Eve, enjoy! 


The inspiration photo seemed very quiet and serene.
This is what I tried to convey with my card design.

______________________________





______________________________

The card's scene is part of a larger stamp from Stampendous.
All I did was crop what I needed.
Another way to get more out of your stamps.

The silver banner provides a bit of shimmer
to the subtle scenery card.
The snowy scene is done with a stencil and white acrylic paint.
This created big white fluffy flakes.
Love those two words together- fluffy flakes
Challenges Entered:
Creative with Stamps: #10- Winter Wonderland
Repeat Impressions Inspiration Palette Challenge: J1817




As I write this we are waiting for the ball to drop by watching a Mythbusters marathon with my 9 and 11-year-old. My son's ears are bright red which a sure sign he is tired. My daughter is just fine as she is a night owl like myself. I would have never thought in my 20's I would be hanging out with my kids waiting for the new year. In my 20's, I wanted to go to Times Square and celebrate with the masses. Wow! Do times change because I wouldn't want to be anywhere in the world but here. 

That should do it for me!! So come on over and join our challenge this month at House of Cards. I would like to thank you so much for dropping by TheGrandStampede and do hope you will return soon. Until then, have a great day and a very wonderful New Years Day. Take care and happy crafting...

All the best,
Shawna

You made this work for both challenges this month, glad to see you entered it in The House that Stamps Built as well. It is a very pretty scene and I have a feeling this photo inspiration was a very popular one this month, it just speaks winter. Shirley DT
