Yet It's Fall... And My Sense of Snow

Hello Everyone!
Всем привет!

Today I am sharing two absolutely wintery cards. The first one is for Merry Monday Challenge #130:
Сегодня у меня две абсолютно зимние открытки. Первую я сделала для Merry Monday Challenge #130:


This week LeAnne is challenging us to create a card evoking peaceful feeling of a silent night before Christmas.
На этой неделе LeAnne приглашает сделать открытку, напоминающую о Рождественской ночи, спокойную и волшебную.


First I made an inked background. Following Jennifer's advise I used Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, and Chipped Sapphire. Here you can watch her video tutorial on night sky technique. Then I die cut out a front panel and a landscape window. Below the window I heat embossed Winter in Ranger Gold Tinsel and stamped Wonderland in black. I added drops of gold Color Shine. Finally, I popped up the front panel with foam tape to add dimension to the card. I just love Ranger Gold Tinsel EP, it shines incredibly! 



В первую очередь я сделала фон - звездное небо. Последовав совету Jennifer, я нанесла с помощью спонжей Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, и Chipped Sapphire и хаотично накапала золотой краской на небесный фон. Здесь можно посмотреть подробное видео с техникой создания ночного неба. Затем я вырезала переднюю панель и окошко с пейзажем в ней. До сборки отпечатала горячим тиснением слово Winter и второе слово черными чернилами на передней панели и приклеила ее на основу подушечками, подложив небесный фон. Мне безумно нравится блеск слова Winter!

I am also linking it up to CAS on Sunday Challenge #44, because this time it requires embossing: heat embossing, dry embossing or using embossing pastes.
Я также выставляю эту открытку в конкурс CAS on Sunday Challenge #44, посвященный тиснению, любому, горячему, сухому или с помощью паст.

The second card I made for Addicted to CAS Challenge # 49
Вторую открытку я сделала для задания №49 Addicted to CAS



Kylie is hosting this challenge and she has chosen the code word:
На этой недели задание от Kylie, и она выбрала ключевое слово Трафарет:


I find stencils one of the best ways to create backgrounds for many images and make one-layer cards like this one. Firstly, I stamped the sentiment and the image, then I masked of the image and stencilled the falling snow. Then I coloured the image with watercolours, and finally added a little bit of glitter. 

Мне очень нравится использовать трафареты для создания фона и однослойных открыток таких, как эта. Сначала я напечала фразу и картинку, закрыв картинку маской, я нанесла губкой через трафарет падающий снег, первый слой - Stormy Sky, и второй слой по краям - Faded Jeans. После этого я раскрасила картинку акварелью и добавила прозрачный глиттер как снег.



Thanks for visiting and have a nice day!
Спасибо, что заглянули! Хорошего всем дня!

  2. Two gorgeous cards. Your night sky is wonderful, I must have a go at that technique, and I love how you've put it behind the window, great effect. Your stencilled snow in the second card works so well too, ideal for a one layer card. Love Karen x
