All the hoppers are linked below and each hopper has a giveaway up for grabs (more on that in a bit)…
I’ve got two projects to share with you today! (Oh, and both sets I am using today have coordinating dies).. First up, is a card using the Crystal Flurries stamp set. Oh those snowflakes. They stole my heart! Gorgeous! All the different sizes and detail. Stunning! I wanted to really capture the snowflakes in the spirit of winter so I started with a white piece of card stock and layered up some different color distress inks. I dusted some perfect pearls powder over the top and then stamp the snowflakes with water. Yup! I sprayed water onto the stamp and stamped!
To create the shadow look, I took the stormy sky distress ink (one of the colors I used in the background) and stamped it again right over the top of the water impression. And then I flicked on some white flicks to finish off the background. The sentiment was stamped in versamark and heatset with bright white Wow embossing powder!
Next up is a card I made using the Autumn Foliage stamp set. It’s a layering leaves stamp set and it is gorgeous! This one has a video to go along with it. I decided to create something using the layering stamps in a different way. I used the stamps on their own, rather than layering them up.. And see that striped background? That was made with alcohol markers and the embossing resist technique! I saw this technique on Gina K’s blog and had to give it a try!!! I created the striped background the same way for both cards, but I used the solid layering stamp on one card and the layering stamp set on the other card for a completely different look. I also used Distress Markers to create a two toned stamped sentiment.
