Hi Stampers. Thank you for stopping by my blog on today’s blog hop featuring the limited release Snowflake Showcase! During the month of November only – Stampin’ Up! is featuring some new limited release products. We are here to show you all the ways these great new products can be used!
The Snowflake Showcase features TWO new stamp sets and a fantastic new set of framelits that work with BOTH stamp sets! In addition to that, there are some cute snowflake embellishments and some fabulous Whisper White velvet paper! What’s not to love????
For my card I’m choosing to use a new fold I recently discovered. It’s a great way to use our gorgeous Designer Series Papers! This card starts with a Merry Merlot card base that is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. The Joyous Noel DSP layer is 8″ x 4″, scored at 4″ and 2″ and folded in an “N”.
The top of the card has a 3″ x 4 1/4″ layer of Merry Merlot CS and 2 3/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla CS. Onto the Very Vanilla layer, I stamped the tree in Shaded Spruce ink and the trunk in Soft Suede ink. (Note: the tree stamp is taller than shown, I just inked the top part of the tree and not the bottom, making it shorter).
I rubbed the Very Vanilla layer withe my embossing buddy (to prevent powder from sticking where I didn’t want it). Then I stamped the snowflakes with Versamark ink and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder – this made them match the DSP I used. Some shimmery embossing paste under the tree gives the look of snow and some rhinestones (colored with Stampin’ Blends or Sharpie markers) give the look of ornaments.
The inside of the card has the same size CS inserts. (Merry Merlot CS – 3″ x 4 1/4″ and Very Vanilla CS – 2 3/4″ x 4″). I stamped the sentiment and falling snowflakes onto the Very Vanilla layer with Merry Merlot ink using the hinge method of stamping on my Stamparatus. The falling snowflakes stamp was designed to work with the Stamparatus for perfect placement to continue a row of these without a space or overlapping – how awesome is that!?!?
Here is a photo giving you an idea of how the card opens. I just love how it came out and I hope you do too!
Here is the video of my recent Facebook Live showing how to make this card.
I encourage you to follow along on the hop and check out all the fun ideas my fellow demonstrators are sharing. Should you need to order any supplies for this project (and you don’t already have a demonstrator) I would love to add you to my VIPs. I provided a list below with products used and links to my online store. Happy Hopping!
