Reflection Trees Card Making Video Tutorial

 Hello! Today I have one more The Northwoods video to share with you. This is the last one for a while, I promise! I wanted to do a video of a sponged scene using only two colors to make it a bit easier to people that are new to sponging.

Here is the video.

Direct link to video on Youtube. 


To start, cut and emboss white cardstock using Spellbinders® A2 Modern Stationary die template. Then stamp the trees, from The Northwoods, using Gina K Black ink.

To create the reflection, stamp the image on acetate, then turn it over and carefully place where you want the reflection. Hold it securely and rub gently over the image. When you lift the acetate sheet away, the reverse image should be left behind.

Note: I used the acetate sheet that came with the stamp set to do this. You can also use transparency sheets or a reverse image stamp. 

Place sticky notes over the top image and trace along the contour line. Remove the sticky notes and trim along the line, then put it back in place to mask above the contour line.

Lightly sponge along the mask using Gina K Fresh Asparagus ink.

Trim a wavy line in another sticky note and place a bit lower than the first, then sponge using Gina K Powder Blue ink.

Remove the mask and sponge around the edges of the die template using Powder Blue ink.

Use a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch, Powder Blue card base and add decorative score lines with your Scor-Buddy. Stamp the sentiment on white and cut using Spellbinders Classic Ovals. Adhere both die cuts to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

This is a great video, Theresa. I used to use waxed paper to transfer a reflection image, but (slapping my forehead) why didn't I think of acetate??? Thanks!!!
