Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Little Church in the Woods
Hello my stamping friends, I’m making a scene today! No not that kind of scene, ha-ha – a Little Church in the Woods scene.
This is what happens when you go Dumpster Diving in your UFO drawer (UnFinished Objects). It was overflowing, so I dumped it out, went hunting and came up with this:
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Little Church in the Woods Card:
- Start with a background embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder – it’s a Christmas card – we need snow!
- Add a little bling, but not too much. I looped some Gold Metallic Thread and laid it on my card.
- Next, I found a couple of trees cut out with the Card Front Builder Dies, in Old Olive. I glued the single one down on the card and used mini Dimensionals to add the double tree die cut.
- Die cutting stars and that adorable little deer from a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet pulled the gold into the card. (also with the Card Front Builder Die Set).
- Then I found my little church. It’s from the “In the City’ Host Stamp Set – page 222 of the big catalogue. I added just a bit of colour with my light Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight Blends before attaching it with Dimensionals as well.
- Did you spy the white snowflake in the top right corner? – die cut with the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits (also on the carry forward list – YEAH). I attached it with a sliver of dimensional and then used multipurpose glue to attach the stars.
- No BIG sentiments for this pretty scene just one word “Joy”. Stamped in black on a scrap of Whisper White – the stamp is from “Ready for Christmas” – page 7 of the Holiday Catalogue….I just saw that this set is on the carry forward list and I’m really happy about that because I have not had a chance to ink it up yet ha-ha – too many stamps – too little time.
To finish – I framed out my scene with just a splash of Gold Foil Sheet and then an understated Crumb Cake Base. (cutting instructions are below for you).
As a result – another fast and easy card, reasonably flat, so I think I can get away with basic postage, and I’m going to spend my Sunday creating a few more. Hope you have some fun stamping today as well.
