The inspiration for this card came from the song "I love the Winter Weather", one of my husband's favorites during Christmas time. I really wanted to use this cute stamp but didn't need another Christmas card so I made a love themed card with a winter sky.
The image stamp is Penny Black's Nose to Nose.
The sky was done with Distress inks and Oxides - Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. (I mix and match distress inks and oxides as I have some colors in oxides and some in regular distress inks.) Before inking, I added a circle mask for the moon and flicked some masking fluid onto the card stock for a snow or starry effect. While I was waiting for the masking fluid to dry, I heat embossed the image and added a little bit of color with distress inks, then fussy cut.
The snowy hill was die cut using an old Whimsy Stamps die I received when I was on the Whimsy design team years ago. The die cut trees were done with the Penny Black die set Tall Trees. Sentiment is from the Penny Black set "So Very Much", heat embossed after removing the moon mask.
