Hi everyone! Bringing some faux snow your way today! White bits everywhere these days! lol
My first card I used both the NEW poppystamps Seed Snowflake dies…the outline is the big white flake…I cut and glued three together…
Timesaver Tip: I stacked the 3 together first, without glue, and poked the pieces out, all three at the same time!
Then I die cut the Seed Snowflake Collage die in a 110# Solar White card front panel and inked it with Tumbled Glass Oxide in the center and Evergreen Bough Oxide everywhere else. I love this combo!
I took this picture before assembling because I thought it’d help you see what I inked and where.
The card base is Tumbled Glass Oxide.
Here’s the card assembled…
ok – I finished it and thought, I should spray this with some Frost spray… I like the look of it when the card is in my hand but it sure was hard to get a picture of it! I spent 3 hours yesterday taking and retaking. Now that’s dedication or just stupid. sigh. So moral of the story, don’t spray it if you want to take pictures of it Pam. haha
I love this gorgeous snowflake die. I saw it made up as an ornament. I want to do that.
So I had so much fun inking I decided to make a CAS, clean and simple card. Nothing is clean and simple when I do it! hahahahaha
I mean, I can’t even decide what sentiment to use and what color to stamp the sentiment without deliberating for 30 minutes! lol I get today’s whiny baby award! lol
‘nother lesson…don’t spatter right after you’ve done water drops. The spatters hit the water drops and well, they spread! Oh well, I used it anyway…see…nothing’s simple! Go ahead and laugh cuz I am!
I do love Tumbled Glass Oxide…this is on 110# Solar White too. The sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Art Deco Celebrate Christmas stamp set stamped in the same Tumbled Glass Oxide ink. I wasn’t sure how it would stamp a sentiment but I am really happy with it. I did use the MISTI to stamp it.
I colored the snowflake with a Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen. I really like how that made it sparkle! I tried to capture it…
Linking my card to some challenges…
My last card was inspired by the word ‘collage’ in the title of the Seed Snowflake Collage die…
I just got the NEW Memory Box That’s Acute stamp and die sets so I had to play! First I had to try it in a wreath building way and yes the stamp set works for that!
I soon decided I needed trees to go with the Seed Snowflake Collage panel that I’d inked up with Lucky Clover Oxide and Cracked Pistachio Oxide on 110# Solar White.
I already had the ‘peace’ word stamped and layered/glued up, since I didn’t use it on the first card, I loved it here! It’s from the NEW Memory Box Bold Christmas Greetings stamp and die sets. I love that it has dies to match! Oh so pretty! I love all the scripty words!
Then I decided it needed glitter paper behind and a glitter frame…use the piece from cutting the frame behind the collage.
After stamping and layering the trees where I wanted them…it just needed a bit of something! YES! a small snowflake hit the spot.
This is my week so far! It’s been really nice and I haven’t even been out to enjoy it…maybe today…I hear some stuff calling my name though! I need a stamp store to walk to! lol
