Stamp Set Showcase Week 15 (5) Festival of Trees

Day 5 of 

FESTIVAL OF TREES STAMP SET

And Today brings more sponging and stamping, but today is back tot he cool icy tones of Coastal 

Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Pacific Points inks
Plus Slver Encore ink and the scrolled tree & Dove from the  Same Stamp Set.
Lots of Glimmery, Shimmery, Silveriness

So here we go ...

Begin by making your A6 card blank by trimming a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 144.8cms x 21cm. Score the long side at 10.5cms, fold and burnish with your bone folder.
Put to one side to prevent contamination of your card blank with the inks.

Trim a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper to 14.3cms x 10cms. Put to one side also.

Trim another piece of  Whisper White cardstock to 13.8cms x 9.5cms
This is the first piece you are going to be sponging and stamping


You will need the following ink pads and some pieces of Stampin Sponges (I usually cut mine into 6 segments).

Coastal Cabana
Bermuda Bay
Pacific Point

Begin with the Coastal Cabana ink, and randomly sponge areas if the cardstock. Repeat with the Bermuda Bay ink blending the two colours together in places, and then repeat again using the Pacific Bay ink. You will want to ink off the Pacific Point sponge as it is quite intense in colour. You can always add more ink, but you cannot take it away.
The lovely thing about the sponging techniques as each card will be unique.
Randomly stamp the sponged cardstock using the Scrolled tree and the dove using Silver Memento Ink.

Clean your hands with a baby wipe and wipe dry on kitchen towel.

Now trim a smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock to 9.5cms x 3cms.

This time sponge is as above but just with the Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay inks. 
Randomly stamp this with Silver Encore ink using just the scrolled tree.
Mat (layer) this piece of sponged and stamped cardstock onto a piece of silver Glimmer Paper tmeasuring 9.5cms x 3.5cms using Stampin Dimensionals to pop the panel up.
Now mount this onto the larger panel of sponged & stamped cardstock using Stampin Dimensionals.
Nwxt mount the topper onto your card blank using a little Tombow Multipurpose Glue

Now for the finishing touches
First, stamp your sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Bermuda Bay ink.
Trim this down to 2cm in height and make banner ends by using the Banner punch. Now to do this, you need to feed the trimmed sentiment in through the top of the punch so you only punch the ends, remove, and repeat with the opposite end. Sponge the label lightly with the residual colour on your sponge. Add Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse and pop it up on the small panel.

And lastly adhere an ALL IS CALM snowflake embellishment to the smaller strip using a couple of Glue Dots. Add a basic rhinestone to the centre of the snowflake embellishment.
