Brrrr...


It's starting to feel this way now...well, I might be exaggerating a little bit! You can definitely feel the start of fall in the air now though! This is a soon to be released set from Clear Dollar Stamps called Country Barn. It is a set of one, but can be made to make a beautiful country scene for any season that you so desire :) Some wonderful examples of this are over on Laurie Wilson's blog Clearly Delightful. Feel free to pop on over to take a peek!

This card is heavy with layers and mounds of liquid Applique "snow". All of the elements to the picturesque scene have been popped up on dimensionals at least once! The roof of the barn has been paper pieced with prism metallic aluminum card stock for a wonderful shimmer. I have also highlighted areas that I would think glisten with ice or frost with my Gelly Roll Clear Glitter Pen (I LOVE this thing!!)

I wish that you could all see this card in real life - its so soft and shimmery :)

Your card is absolutely amazing!!! I used your card today as my "Friday Featured Card" and inspiration on my blog today.

Each Friday, I search the SCS gallery uploads and find a card that inspires me... I then create a card of my own and post them on my blog with links to your gallery and blog.
