Peaceful Winter Scene

Hello, everyone!  Today I am sharing a peaceful winter scene card that I made with a gorgeous stamp from Serendipity Stamps that was gifted to me by way of a gift voucher from my sweet friend, Shellie! Thank you, Shellie, I love what I was able to buy with the gift voucher!


The rubber stamp is called Winter Homestead, and I heat-embossed it in gold (Zing Gold - Glitter Finish).  To add snowfall, I used embossing paste and Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil.  The gold border is a peel-off from Crafty Secrets, but I don't believe they sell these any longer. The sentiment is an older wood-mounted rubber stamp from Plaid and I heat-embossed it in the same gold.

It's hard to photograph the sparkle, but this one shows it a bit better:


I was inspired once again by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches - they are having a 200th sketch celebration:


I was also inspired by these fun challenges:

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!
