Muse Christmas Vision #58

Hi Everyone,

I am back to stimulate you to pull out your Christmas supplies and play with us at the Muse Christmas Vision!

I played around here, trying to create a winter scene. Started with heat embossing the pine trees in the left bottom corner and then took the same stamp and stamped it in black - I think i spritzed it with water to get a more solid impression. I did some generational stamping an spritzing. Added some light purple and loosely colored in the  background I wanted a foggy feel to this and I think I succeeded.

Lastly I added the deer die cuts (IO) and did some white outlines on the adults. Added the sentiment (STAMPlorations)

EDITED for more clarification:
I first heat embossed the tree in white at the bottom left corner. I then took the same stamp and stamped it in black. I did generational stamping, so the trees become grey with repeated stamping, which creates depth.  But I also think you could do the white embossing last - I don't think it matters.
The white heat embossed ink resists the black - if there is some stuck to it you can just wipe it off with a damp cloth​.

So, there are so many ways to CASE this - I am sure you'll find your own unique one! 

Hope to see you at MCV!

Succeeded!!! about surpassed all expectations. Wonderful background, misty, cold morning while those deer forage for food. This is absolutely gorgeous. The tinge of color in the frosty sky is the perfect touch to complete this woodland scene.

oh how i love this!
Sharon H said…
Your card is stunning. I love black and white it is so classy, I am confused though. You said you heat embossed the left corner which is white then stamped the black. Did you mask the white to keep the black off of it? Thanks

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dynamic Duos combined with CAS Colours and Sketches

I am getting the hang of combining challenges....not sure if that's good or bad... In the past I would just put all my "creative energy" into one challenge and then just link up with others, if the card just happened to fit...but now I do that on purpose. Well, I'll see how it goes....                           Anyhow here is the card that came out of this: I did not want to add a sentiment - I 'll add it later, when I know who will get it. And here is a close -up: Challenges: Dynamic Duos CAS Colours and Sketches Addicted to Stamps and More Amusing Challenges Materials: Papertrey Background Basics: Super Stripes, Memory Box Chloe Stem die. --X-- Card for Maddy: You may know already about  Maddy ,  who  was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and went through chemotherapy treatment followed by a stem cell transplant from her (then) fifteen year old sister Melanie.  She now has a relapse and this car

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
