Winter Window

I am super excited to be the guest designer over at What Will You Stamp again this week. This week’s stamp set is the fun and versatile Happy Scenes. I made a look out a winter window, which is clearly not one of my windows here in Southern California! I covered the snow at the bottom with Dazzling Diamonds. It is super sparkly in real life.

Winter Window by Yapha

Stamps: Happy Scenes
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Bermuda Bay
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Watercolor Paper, Bohemian Designer Series Paper
Other: Hearth & Home Framelits

I used Brian King’s idea to use part of the window frame to create the “molding” in the back. I hope that you will come play with us this week at What Will You Stamp. It’s such a fun stamp set with so many options!

Little Yellow Leaf

This card makes me think of a book that I read to the kindergartners on Friday — The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger. It’s the story of a leaf that is afraid to fall until she finds a friend to fall with her. It is very sweet.

Autumn Wishes by Yapha

Stamps: Among the Branches
Ink: Hello Honey, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Hello Honey, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Other: Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Woodland Embossing Folder

The Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon is retired, but it is for sale for 60% off on the Clearance Rack right now. I used this week’s sketch from Sunday Stamps and the colors from Can You Case It.

Peaceful Pines Stamp-a-Stack & Card Case for Craft Project Central

You’ll enjoy the ease of using one stamp set and one set of dies to create a variety of Christmas cards that feature an array of simple decorative elements and techniques.  With this tutorial, you will make six cards and decorate a stamp case for storing them until time to drop them in the mail.  Once the case is empty, you’ll probably end up placing a gift in it for someone since it’s decorated and ready to go!  This ensemble is perfect for a class or stamp camp!
