Tis the Season Winter Scene

Back with Christmas in July again!
And we have had some hot days but still fun making cool cards!
The Tranquil Tree has always been my favorite but now it has a BIG brother...the Towering Tree.  It is a similar design but larger to create a nature scene if you desire.  The Towering Tree comes with two birds, a rabbit and a squirrel die ~ to create you own little forest scene!

Here I  used the Antique Sled ~ love that pine and bow, those dies are included in that set as well!!!  Die cut some of the Slippery Slopes & Stitched Clouds Die Set.  I like to cut the Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop Dies then alter them with the Slippery Slopes ~ that way they fit perfectly!
Sentiment is from Shine Bright Stamp Set
Thanks for checking it out today!

Water Colored Christmas Lights!

I have discovered I really like watercoloring!
I remember those watercolor books as a kid that you just dip that paint brush in water and
start brushing on the pages.  Well my technique is very similar!
I tap some Distress Ink or scribble some watercolor marker on a stamp block and just spritz with water and start painting!
For this card I used the Shine Bright Stamp Set and Ranger Clear Embossing Powder to create my bulbs!  Then die cut the base of the bulb from the Christmas Lights Shaker Die Set ~ yes they are sized the same as the stamps, only I USED the larger base.
The strings are from Happy Birthday and are really balloon strings!  But Lisa Lara showed how to use them in THIS post ~ brilliant!  OR you can use the Slippery Slopes & Stitched Clouds Die Set to make a light string like I did in THIS post.
I then smeared Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink onto acrylic stamp blocks, spritzed with water and colored inside the embossed lines.
This gives it a very unique floating on air look!
A simple, quick and easy card!
Thanks for stopping by today!
