Happy Friday crafty friends! Today, we have a fun little blog hop
PLUS there's a challenge over at the SCRAP N' STAMP FB Group- the theme is ALL THAT SPARKLES...so get out your glitter, shimmer ...anything that sparkles!!
So here's the card I made using a Spellbinder's Snowflakes Die as a stencil, Nuvo Glimmer Paste and Distress Oxides.
I started with Smooth Bristol Paper and applied Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxides. I love this color combo for an ombre effect! I used one of the curved MFT- Basic Edge dies on the lower half.
I then die cut a Spellbinder's snowflake die onto cardstock and used it as a stencil with Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer Paste to create that sparkly effect, I masked off the center before I applied the past so I could add my sentiment. I used "MERRY" from the Concord & 9th Christmas Cottage set and stamped it onto the center of the snowflake with Versafine Crimson Red ink. I then die cut the "Christmas" Sentiment from Silver glitter paper using the Birch Press Christmas Sugar Script Die. I also die cut it out from White CS several times and layered them all together to give it more dimension. I then adhered the 2 panels onto my card base with fun foam and added a strip of the silver Glitter paper in between the 2 layers.
For the inside of my card, I used the same Distress Inks from my card front with TH Mini Weathered Winter Snowflakes stamps. A sentiment from an older Cornish Heritage Farm stamp set.
