Beautiful Blizzard – Day 6

I was inspired by a project in the Holiday Catalog for this card.  Just because the project that inspired me was a box doesn’t mean I have to create a box.

Here is the card I created:

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 5

I was inspired by Susan Campfield for this card.  Susan shares so many projects with her team each week that don’t show up on her blog but if you become a demonstrator, you can see them all.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 4

A great way to use some of the smaller snowflakes in the Blizzard Thinlit is in a shaker card.  I created this one for Demos Galore and there was a woman that wanted to know how to make it.  This one is for you!

Here is the card that was on display at Demos Galore.

Here is how you would make it.

I started by die cutting the largest stitched circle in the Whisper White Thick cardstock and then stamping the snowflakes.

Add the 3 ½” x 3 ½” window sheet to the back covering up the circle opening.  I used mini glue dots.

Add the foam adhesive strips bending them around the circle opening, above, and below.  Run the embossing buddy or a tissue around the edge of the adhesive to help prevent the shaker bits from sticking.

Put some snowflakes and sequins on the Balmy Blue cardbase before adding the Whisper White on top.  (I added more this time.)

Punch the ¾” strip of Wood Textures paper using the Everyday Label punch to create the base of the snow globe.

Embellish with some snowflakes on top of the window sheet.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 3

For this Beautiful Blizzard card, I CASE’d the catalog.  Why re-invent the wheel when there are so many amazing cards already in the catalog?  I finally broke into my Brusho watercolor crystals and had some fun making this card.  I wet the watercolor paper, tapped out some of the crystals, and sprayed it with more water.  I think it looks beautiful, I need to use my Brusho more.  To be honest, the only thing keeping me from using it was trying to find some really cute push pins for it.  Oh well, I’ll just use the boring ones I have and keep looking for something really cute.  I also used the new shimmer paint on the snowflakes, I think they look pearlized when you use the frost white.

If you haven’t used Brusho before, you don’t want to actually open the bottles that the crystals come in you just want to put a little hole in the top to shake the crystals out through.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 2

I love to scrapbook and I always create a layout for Demos Galore because I know there must still be some others out there that, like me, still scrapbook.  With two Demos Galore sessions a year at least I get two layouts done.  🙂  I really need to put more time into it since this layout is from 2013.  The Letters for You and Brushwork Alphabet stamp sets are my go to for scrapbook titles.  For the Brushwork Alphabet, I first stamped in Balmy Blue ink and then again using Memento Tuxedo Black.  This was a happy accident since I couldn’t see the title over the stamped snowflake background and I decided to darken it up.  I used the snowflake stamp to create my patterned paper by simply stamping once using Balmy Blue and then stamping a second time without re-inking turning my stamp as I went.

Beautiful Blizzard – Day 1

The day has arrived!  Demos Galore was this past Saturday so it’s time to showcase Beautiful Blizzard.  I’m starting my series with the sneak peak image.  The Blizzard Thinlit is 4″ x 5″ so this card is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ instead of the standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I used the Stamparatus and Night of Navy ink to stamp the sentiment on vellum and then embossed using clear embossing powder.  The ink stays wet a little longer on vellum than on cardstock.  It is so hard to see the sparkle in the glimmer paper behind the Night of Navy but it’s really glittery in person.

Beautiful Blizzard Sneak Peak

This coming Saturday I will be doing a demonstration of the new Beautiful Blizzard bundle in the Holiday Catalog.  Unfortunately I’ve been sick for a few weeks and I’m way behind where I’d like to be by this point.  So for today’s blog post you are getting a sneak peak of one of the cards I’ll be displaying on Saturday and I likely won’t have a post on Thursday.  Check back next week for my Beautiful Blizzard series when you get to see everything I’ve made.
