I hope you had a great weekend. I did lots of cleaning, sorting, and gathering things to donate to Good Will. We moved into our home 3 1/2 years ago. We unpacked stuff and put it all away, but I haven't gone through some areas of the house (like the linen closet) since then. It was time to go through and purge. Although it was lots of work, I love getting stuff out of my house. It feels so good to look at the areas of my house that are now clean and sorted. It makes me smile. I can't wait until it's all done.
Anyway, on to the stamping! On Friday I showed you my first "Zindorf" card. Here's the second Zindorf card we made at the meeting.
Isn't that beautiful? Kathleen designed this card. There are so many steps involved in this card that I hope I don't leave any out.
The trees are made from the Oak Tree stamp from the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set. I inked it up in Pumpkin Pie ink, then in versmark ink, and then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock. I repeated that several times down both sides of the cardstock. Then I covered the trees in clear embossing powder and embossed it.
Then I repeated the exact same process again except this time I used Summer Sun ink. The tree image was stamped right on top of the embossed Pumpkin Pie tree images. That's why there's a little bit of yellow that's peaking through the orange on the tree.
The moon was masked by a 1 1/4" circle punched out from a sticky note. Next I brayered the sky and the water using Bashful Blue, Bordering Blue, and Night of Navy ink. Kathleen also had the fantastic idea of inking up the Oak Tree stamp in Bashful Blue ink, stamping it off once and then stamping it directly on the moon. This gives it the look of having craters on the moon. Clever idea, huh?
After the moon and sky were done, I made the bridge. I stuck a sticky note across the cardstock to mark the top edge of the bridge. The arch under the bridge was created by using a 1" circle punched out of a sticky note. Then I sponged Close to Cocoa ink in between the two sticky notes to create the bridge.
The "tree" cardstock panel was layered on top of Bashful Blue cardstock with Night of Navy ink brayered across the top and bottom edges. Next I attached my Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon. Then that was layered on a Night of Navy piece of cardstock. Simple enough? LOL!
I hope you have a wonderful Monday. Thanks for stopping by! ~Dannie
