Holiday Greetings

I have a big news to share. This also explains why I have been very quiet for several months. I bought a house. It took entire summer and few extra months to fix the place up. All the remodeling is still not done but last weekend I moved in. My room is filled with unopened boxes and I'm not very sure where my card making supplies are. It takes some more time until I can get crafty again.
Here is a last card I made in my previous home. Some of my stuff was already packed so this card is very simple.

As always on first Sunday of the month it's time for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. This time we want to see a Christmas Project with stamping.
Our sponsor is fabulous Little Claire. They offer £35 store voucher. You should definitely go and check their website. It's so inspiring.

I got an idea to make this card from Paula. Her card is so pretty.
I started with stamping the tree from Katzelkraft Arbres hiver set with StazOn ink to the right side, made a snow hill mask and stamped two more trees to the left. I covered trees with masking fluid and let it dry. Moon mask was die cut with circle die, I also saved the negative part of the cut. After all the masks was placed and dry, I started to ink the sky. I used Memento Summer Sky and Tuxedo Black, and Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress inks.

To color the moon I placed the negative mask slightly off-set and inked it with Tuxedo Black ink. I also put some water drops on top to add the texture.
Sentiment is from Holiday Foliage stamp set.
Most time consuming about this card was to wait until liquid mask was dry and to rub it off later. I also added some Sparkling Snow glitter to the trees with Sakura Glue Pen and to the snow hill with SNS Brushable Glue.

I know you can do better and make your project look more Christmas then just winter. Go visit also my talented teamies to get inspired.

I don't know where my notepad with supply list is, so I try to remember what I used on this card:
Stamps: Katzelkraft - Arbres hiver;  Sparkle N Sprinkle - Holiday Foliage
Inks: StazOn - Jet Black; Memento - Summer Sky, Tuxedo Black; Distress Inks - Broken China, Faded Jeans
Dies: Spellbinders - Standard Circles Large
Cardstock: White, Grey
Embellishments: Sparkling Snow glitter, Silver twine
Other: Artcoe masking fluid; Sakura Glue Pen; SNS Brushable Glue; Foam tape

Thank you for the visit!
Hugs & smiles
