Still Winter...

Well, I should know not to get in a hurry for Spring here in Indiana...I was hoping that we were done with the snow but alas today those darn little flakes are falling again!  So rather than complain (more than I already have) I thought I might as well join 'em!

Stamps: Rubber Stamp Tapestry - Woods in Winter
Paper Smooches - Hello from Scripty Sayings

My first card was made by pouncing Fresh Greens Kaliedacolor ink pad on my craft mat and spritzing with Ink Potion No. 9.  I smooshed the cardstock into the ink and picked up the smaller bits over and over to give a really pretty layered depth to the greens.  I stamped the tree with a combo of VersaFine Clair (Rain Forest) and Rich Cocoa Dual Tip Marker (on the tree trunk).  I then stamped the birds again with VFC - Red Tulip and the "Hello" sentiment with VFC Nocturn.  I then stenciled on the falling snow with gesso and smeared a bit more along the bottom of the panel free-hand.

Stamps: Rubber Stamp Tapestry - Woods in Winter (pine trees);
Budding Spring (rabbit)

This card was lots of fun...I love making winter pine forests - they always turn out so pretty!  The pines were stamped using VF Clair - Morning Mist (grey), Twilight (grey blue) and Rain Forest (dark green).  The sky is a blend of blues & purples applied with a sponge dauber then misted with Mister Huey's Opaque White spray.   I stamped the bunny then sponged on a bit of pink on his ears and grey on his fur coat.

Stamps: Rubber Stamp Tapestry Woodland Harvest (Tree);
 Woods in Winter (birds); various Peg Stamps - flowers, grass, snowman, snowflakes, etc.

My final card was made in hopes that we could move along from Winter snow and cold into Spring!  I am so ready for a bit of color ~ other than brown (grass, trees, etc) to green on the grass, trees and maybe even some flowers to oooh and ahhh over!  

So what season are you currently experiencing?
Has Spring sprung in your neck of the woods or are you still "enjoying" winter?


  1. Very lovely cards. I do love that last on with all the seasons. Well, the robins and bluebirds are here, but it is still cold and we do have a bit of snow on the ground and may get a touch more. It really is pretty normal weather for March. Spring is coming!!

  2. All of your cards are wonderful! Such pretty scenes and backgrounds!
