Introducing Winter Woods...

Winter is in the air for this latest PTI Release.  Or at least it is here in Kansas.  Yesterday it started out around 64 degrees and by 4pm it was 48 degrees.  Brrrr!  I didn't even have a coat with me!  I am not totally ready for winter but I am loving the stamps and dies we are showcasing today in the first Group Project of the November Papertrey Ink Release.

This first card was made using new stamps from the Winter Woods set.  First, I took some Aqua Mist ink and did a little soft blending in the background.  Next, I inked up the branch in Dark Chocolate and spritzed it with water for that watercolor look.


I inked up the greenery in Simply Chartreuse with a little touch of Ripe Avocado and again spritzed that stamp with water.  I did the same for the cardinal.  I inked her up with Pure Poppy and sprayed a a little water on.  I added in the details and sentiment in black to finish off the card. Oh!  And I added a little black pearl for an eye!  


For this next card, I used the Winter Woods cover plate.  After cutting in out of white card stock, I ran it through with my woodgrain impression plate for some texture.  I put this cover plate die on top of an inked up card base.  I also added the snow flake die in white ink on the Aqua Mist inking.  


To finish it off, I added in the little bird from the set and a sentiment embossed on a vellum banner.  


Tomorrow is another fun Group Post, so I hope that you will stop back by.  Thanks for visiting today!
