Helllooooo there! It’s me here with a little stamped watercolor fun…I got happy mail from my friends at Art Impressions, and I decided to take a momentary sabbatical break and make a few winter cards to send out at the first of the year.

My card “theme” for these – winter! I’ve been sharing all wintery/Christmassy projects all month, so decided to try using just 2 Tombow colors (526 and 879, with a tiny bit of 565 and 373 tossed in) to create a wintery feel. All the new stamps of course can be used by most with flowers and grasses and shrubs but…the coolest bit in this release is the SCENES – there are several here, and they’re *clear* stamps. Kinda awesome for working out placement!
First – this Gazebo card is an igtv/fb video (meaning a quick little one with no voiceover) on Facebook and Instagram.
Next up, the Ornate Window – no flowers! I did use the bricks around the window, and added some crazy Glossy Accents (second pic) with glitter for the snow!
I added a container to my snowy Rocking Chair (am I the only one who regrets leaving yard furniture out all winter?) and even attempted a little negative painting around some of the stems sticking out of the snow…
This is one of the scenes I mentioned – Stone Creek. Combined it with some new trees from Mini Foliage, which has plants small enough for these landscapes. And the people and dog are from Silhouettes – adding a dot on top of the figures so they’d have hats!
These scene cards are also excellent for things like slimline cards – this one uses my apparently favorite Trinity slimline die (lol)….and I made a continuous scene with the houses in the Village set.
Both stamped watercolor classes are available if you need to do a deeper dive into these kinds of cards!
