11.24.2022…..Happy Thanksgiving, my stampin’ friends! I’ve been working on lots of holiday projects lately, but haven’t had a chance to post them. Today, I’m sharing a card created with the Snow Crystal background stamp, along with the Joyful Flurry Bundle. I also thought it would be fun to combine it with a non-traditional color combo…..Blackberry Bliss and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Hope this card inspires you to try a new color combo on your next holiday project, too!
For my card, I started with a Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, and adhered it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I heat-embossed the Snow Crystal image on Blackberry Bliss Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Next, I used my Water Painter to “flick” water drops across the cardstock, then dried it with a Heat Tool.
I then my Water Painter, along with a few drops of my White Craft Ink Refill (mixed with a tiny bit of water) to add some white speckles. (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the end of the brush against the inside edge of the brush cap, and “flicked” outward towards the cardstock.) I also layered a slightly large piece of Basic White Thick Cardstock underneath, and popped up with entire panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To add some extra shimmer, I added two Wonderful Snowflakes…one tucked underneath the bottom left corner, and one on top of the embossed snowflake. The sentiment (from the Joyful Flurry Bundle) was heat-embossed on Basic White Thick Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I then cut it out with one of the coordinating dies from the same bundle, and popped it up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tucked underneath the sentiment is some Iridescent Trim. For a bit of bling, I sprinkled on Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
