I “watercolored” the background with Distress Oxide Inks by Ranger Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and finally sponged the upper boarders with Wilted Violet.  Using the Misti Stamping Tool , I stamped the trees from  Joy of The Season  SSS101919 a colaboration between SimonSays Stamp and Gina K Designs for Stamptember 2018  (This was a limited edition)  with Versamark Ink  & embossed with Black Ranger Embossing Powder .  Sentiment die is Hero Arts D1536 Christmas Cut-Out Fancy Die (B).  I spread Glossy Accents by Ranger  on the black cardstock  in the area that the die would expose and while it was wet  I added Crystal Stars Glitter(this seems to be discontinued, but you can still get many colors of plain glitter)  I added a few of the stars across the top of the card with Glossy Accents.

I stamped the snowflakes from  Joy of The Season  SSS101919 a colaboration between SimonSays Stamp and Gina K Designs for Stamptember 2018  (This was a limited edition) OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA with Versamark Ink  & embossed with  Gold Ranger Embossing Powder .  I added  Glossy Accents by Ranger to the largest blank spaces on the largest snowflake arms as seen on the right. ( I had difficulty photographing, the gold detail shows up better on this picture, but it washed out the sentiment with flash reflections) I stamped the sentiment on heat resistant 3MTransparency Film for Laser Copiers and heat embossed with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Ranger Embossing Powder .  I matted with gold metalic paper.

(2018 c142) Lawn Fawn, Upon A Star

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sky background: First I colored watercolor paper by SMOOSHING Distress Inks by Ranger  that had been applied to acetate and then spritzed with water.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Next I sprinkled with Violet Ken Oliver Color Burst (Watercolor Pigment Powder)  & spritzed with water.   I stamped the stars with Versamark Ink with Lawn Fawn:  Upon A Star and heat embossed with A very glittery embossing powder that I bought at a garage sale and it did not have a label, so I don’t even know where to get more.  It is my favorite silver glitter embossing powder!   The grass was colored with Citron Distress Inks by Ranger .  The sky & ground were cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Boarders.The card is longer than the dies so I repositioned to finish the cuts.  The unicorns are XCut XCU503029 Unicorn Mini Die set (the link is to the European company, but I have found them in the USA in a local store in Oregon). I colored them by smooshing again and painted the main and tails with Crayola 8-color Watercolor SetThe sentiment from  Lawn Fawn:  Upon A Star was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed  with  a FUN scented embossing powder:  Color Box Scentz – Grape.
