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.

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.

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.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Beautiful Blizzard

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.
