November Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Good morning!  Today is the Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop.  The inspiration for this month's hop is the photo below with it's wintery whites and pop of blues, teals, green and silver.
After just receiving the new Winter Woods stamp set and Cover Plate, I decided to create a card using my new supplies.  I started out with a piece of soft stone cardstock to 4"x 5 1/4" and heat embossed it using the stamp from the Winter Woods set that looks like falling snow then I sponged along the top with gray ink.  Once that was done, I adhered that to a soft stone card base.  After that, I die cut two of the Winter Woods Cover Plate, one in white and one in gray.  Then I stamped the white tree trunks to make them look like birch trees, added a little shading along one side using a Copic marker and then glued the white stamped die cut piece to the gray piece shifting it a bit so that it shadowed the white trees.  The next thing I did was to stamp my blue jay and adhere him using foam tape, then I added a strip of silver cardstock, my sentiment banner and a snowflake with a button center along the bottom of the card.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
