Beautiful Blizzard – Day 13

This was my daughters favorite card and one of mine too.  I just love the color combination.  I’m almost exactly CASE’d it from TatianaCreative.com.au.  Her card was just so beautiful.  Now I just need to create a scrapbook page to put the SNOW on.  🙂

Highland Heather and Pool Party were stamped off before stamping on the card front for the snowflakes, Balmy Blue was stamped full strength.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 12

So when I first got the Blizzard thinlit I wondered what I could make with it that wasn’t strictly a snowflake and I came up with this wreath.  I created a Whisper White wreath to mount the snowflakes on.  I colored each of them with the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler light and dark Stampin’ Blends before using the fine-tip glue pen build the wreath.  All of the Cherry Cobbler pieces have Wink of Stella on them but again that’s not showing up in the photos.

Here is the wreath I created from the largest stitched shapes circle and the 2 1/4″ circle punch before I added the snowflakes:

I had lines drawn on the back of my wreath so I could evenly distribute the snowflakes but not everyone feels compelled to be that precise.  🙂  Also some of the white for the wreath showed behind the snowflakes, hence the white background.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 11

This card was inspired by Sam Hammond Donald.  I love how she used pinks for a snowflake card so I made my own.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 10

I absolutely CASE’d Terri Gaines for this card.  I saw her present it at Creative Connections last month and I knew I had to make it.  I love that she cut the top panel and hid the cut with the ribbon.  The ribbon is threaded through the hole and then tied to keep it in place hiding the slice.  Plus it’s really shiny with the silver foil layer and the sentiment embossed with silver embossing powder.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 9

One of my favorite parts of the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set is the cluster of snowflakes.  I love how you can make your own patterned paper with them, which I did a lot with this series.  The sentiment is stamped with Night of Navy ink using the Stamparatus and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I love that the ink stays wet longer on vellum so you can easily do the embossing.  If you want to do this on regular cardstock; use the Stamparatus, stamp with your colored ink, and then stamp with Versamark before applying the clear embossing powder.  You can’t see it in the photo, but each of the snowflakes are coated with Wink of Stella.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 8

I think the Sparkle Glimmer paper is just beautiful and works wonderfully with the Blizzard thinlit.  Another great thing about the glimmer paper is that it doesn’t shed glitter!  I love that!

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 7

This was the card I demo’ed at Demos Galore to show how you can use the Blizzard thinlit to emboss instead of die cut.  We also made this card at my class last Saturday.

It’s really hard to see in the photo but the snowflakes were sprayed with shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol in a spritzer.

Sandwich for embossing: multipurpose platform on tab 1, white impressions pad, blue embossing mat, paper, die with cut side facing down, standard cutting mat.  If your snowflake isn’t embossing deeply enough, try putting an extra piece of cardstock under it.

I talked about how you can use the snowflakes and make a card like this one where I attached the snowflakes and then used the Subtle embossing folder.

Or you could make a card like this one using the negative space left over.

Or for this one I used the shimmer paint on the snowflake and it turned out more pearlized.
