Hello! We hope you are well. Jane is here on the blog today with a beautiful card featuring the winter tree stamp from our VI MINIS #1 stamp set with our ‘Believe in Your Mind’ stamp, to create a wonderful moonlit Autumn scene…
The new autumn release is now for sale worldwide and has gone down a storm. There are 9 gorgeous new sets to choose for and if you have been sleeping under a log (with the cute hedgehog) and missed them do check them out on the website. I have already shared lots of my makes with the 3 nature sets so I thought I would share something different today.
I used one part of the gorgeous new Create With Your Soul A7 size set . This emotive sentiment was written many years ago by Helen, aka Mrs Visible Image and was a best seller. It has been updated and this new variation is now in 3 parts, rather than a single stamp, which makes it so versatile. You can use any part or all 3!
I teamed it with the delightful tree and birds from the VI minis #1 set. This a a set with some of their iconic stamps…. in ATC or mini size. I am hoping to see lots more of these sets in the future.
I wanted to capture a moonlit autumnal moment so I created a distress ink background first.
I took a square of super smooth 300gsm card stock. I used salvaged patina, kitsch flamingo and dusty concord inks. I masked off a moon after I had added a little smudge of kitsch and patina ink and then blended out from the moon starting with kitsch, then patina and finally dusty colours. I then ripped some copy paper to make the “hills” and added a little more patina and dusty ink colour.
This was my finished background.
I then stamped the tree in Versafine clair ink
with the birds flying out.
As the Create With Your Soul set is in 3 parts so you can mix and match as you feel, or use all 3 parts. I chose to you just the “Believe With Your Mind” part as it really fitted the scene I had created. I stamped it just under the moon and clear embossed it for extra texture and shine.
Finally I matted and layered my card.
Here it is
A close up, where you can see I added a little shading under the tree.
and one final shot
I really enjoyed created my moonlit card and hope it will inspire you too.
Do check out social media too you will find me on instagram where I share many more of my makes and sneak peeks than I have time to blog.
Bye for now,
Such a beautiful scene for our winter tree stamp, and sentiment works wonderfully. Thank you Jane ♡
