let it snow

Not really no, i don't want it to snow. It's only fun if you don't need to go anywhere.


So i'm back with a Christmas card. The images are all from Designs by Ryn while the sentiment is from Claritystamp.


On a piece of white card I stamped the snowflake in versamark and heat embossed in white detail. I added tumbled glass and weathered wood distress ink to my craft sheet and spritzed with water then smooshed card through it. I repeated this a couple of times always drying in between.


Then using same stamp and weathered wood DI, i stamped the snowflake again. 


Then I stamped the trickling water in black archival ink. I heat set it and then bleached some of the colour away with water. I highlighted with white pen and added glossy accents.


I added some shimmer to embossed snowflakes with the glitter glaze pen. I added some pearls to centres of snowflakes


I mounted it on pearlized blue card and added a ribbon. I added a little snowflake charm which i covered in white embossing powder and then kaleidoscope on top.


I stamped sentiment in blue archival and again heat set.



I mounted it on 8x8 base card and added some more small pearls to background.

As usual i hope you like my offer and would appreciate any comments, Theresa xx

  5. Hey you :) Thanks for uploading. It's snowing like crazy here right now. I'm looking out the window and big fluffy flakes are drifting down. Perfect atmosphere to be looking at your card in. Love your layering of the Celtic star and soft winters colours. It's gorgeous!
