Stampin’ Up! Snow Front Birthday Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a Masculine Birthday Card made with the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front photopolymer stamp set that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. Nature cards are always good themes for masculine birthdays and the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set is one that helps you create beautiful natural landscapes that look like watercolor paintings. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by stamping the mountains from the Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set in Gray Granite ink twice along the middle of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the large pine tree in Garden Green ink, the deer in Cinnamon Cider ink and the lake in Balmy Blue ink. I used the swirl stamp to stamp some Pear Pizzazz ink on the ground after stamping off.

I lightly sponged the sky above the mountains in Balmy Blue ink with my sponge dauber and lightly sponged some Pear Pizzazz ink on the ground and mountains. I adhered the stamped panel to a Garden Green mat with Stampin’ Seal. I wrapped Linen Thread around the layered panel and tied a knot and popped it on the front of a Cinnamon Cider card base.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Pallet Thoughts cling stamp set in Cinnamon Cider ink on a small Garden Green panel and cut it out with the banner die from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I added a small silver metallic pearl and adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

I stamped the tree, deer and ground in the corner of a Whisper White panel using the same colors as the card front. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Snow Front stamp set has lots of elements to create beautiful watercolor – like landscapes just by stamping and it’s easy and fun. You can use it with other stamp sets such as the similar Waterfront and My Meadow stamp sets. I kept this card simple and used the entire card front for my stamped image so it has a lot of white space, but you can also stamp a smaller image and layer it with embossed card stock or natural texture designer series paper. It’s very versatile and the results are amazing!

Stampin’ Up! Snow Front Autumn Cabin in the Woods Card

Good Morning! Yesterday was officially the first day of Fall, but with temperatures n the high 80’s here in Pennsylvania, it really doesn’t feel like it yet. So here’s a card to get us in the mood. It’s made with the new Stampin’ Up! Snow Front photopolymer stamp set. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I started by running a Cajun Craze panel through the Pinewood Planks embossing folder and mounting it on a Soft Suede card base with liquid glue. I randomly stamped the large maple leaf from the Gather Together stamp set in Delicata Celestial Copper ink on a panel of Crumb Cake cardstock.

I stamped the images from the Stampin’ Up Snow Front stamp set on a panel of Whisper white as follows:

  • Mountains – Smoky Slate
  • Pine Trees – Shaded Spruce
  • Cabin and Deer – Early Espresso
  • Tree Trunks – Soft Suede
  • Leaves – Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Cajun Crazw
  • Lake – Balmy Blue
  • Grass – Old Olive

I then lightly sponged the grass in Old Olive and the sky in Seaside Spray. I gave the cabin a red tin roof using the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend and colored the cabin with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend. I added a touch of Wink of Stella to the lake to make the water sparkle and wrapped a piece of copper trim around the bottom.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Gathered Together set on a strip of Old Olive cardstock using Early Espresso ink and added a copper Designer element before adhering it to the bottom of the image. I layered the Crumb Cake panel and the image and adhered them to the card with liquid glue.

I decorated the inside of the card by stamping a few maple leaves from the Gather Together stamp set in Celestial Copper ink on a panel of Whisper White. I adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat and then to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up Snow Front stamp set is similar to the Waterfront stamp set for creating artistic landscape scenes. This puts me in the mood to visit the mountains and woods to see some great fall foliage. Thanks for visiting and have a great Fall day!
