Snowball Juggling in a Winter Wonderland

Here’s another fun card from the Let It Snow Suite on pages 18-21 of the Holiday Catalog. I told you yesterday I would play with the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint soon…and I couldn’t stop thinking about it until I did it! With this card, I wanted to show off the sparkling glitter on the trees, so I opted for the smaller, snowball juggling snowman and placed him off to the side. I’m sorry you can’t see that detail on the paper, but believe me…it’s there! I decided to stamp the inside with the sentiment “Winter Wonderland” from Everything Festive because that’s all I could think about with those fun trees.

Here’s a close up of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. It’s so much fun! Just make sure your heat tool is already hot when you start and it only takes a few seconds to see it change from liquid to puff! Oh – and if you look at the middle tree above the snowman, you can catch a little glimpse of the glitter on the tree.

Snuggly Snowman

Have you seen the Let It Snow Suite on pages 18-21 of the Holiday Catalog? OMGoodness! Those little snowmen are so adorable! And what really takes the cake are the felt hats, scarves and mittens in the Embellishment Kit! I knew the moment I laid eyes on the suite that I was going to have snowmen Christmas cards this year! Here’s a snip from the catalog:

And here’s the adorable card I made last night. I stamped the snowman in Memento Tuxedo Black so I could use the Stampin Blends for the nose and slight blue shadow on the right side. I simply had to incorporate some felt pieces and the snowman is so happy to be keeping warm! I’ll be playing around with this suite for a bit, so I’m sure I’ll have some samples coming up that incorporate the Winter Knit 3D embossing folder as well as the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint.

A Country Recovery

Today’s card was created for the ever lovely Jean, who is laid up in a rehab facility, due to a broken femur.  She loves yellow and green so I naturally used those colors for the base and layers. I love the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder and knew it would make a gorgeous backdrop for the watering can by using Copper Foil. I kept the copper theme going with the embossing powder for the sentiment in the Healing Hugs set as well as the Designer Elements.

On this close-up, you can see how I used the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (available in the 2019 Holiday Catalog) to mimic cotton. I should have used a little bit more, but this was my first time using it and I didn’t want to go overboard. It makes for a very unique texture and I’m glad I gave it a try.

Seaside Dandelion

I apologize for how long it’s been since my last post. I had ankle surgery on September 11th and expected to be able to do lots of stamping while recovering. Definitely not the case when you find out you have to keep your ankle elevated above your heart level for the first couple weeks! I was able to sit down and do some stamping last night. I know everyone is into the autumn and winter cards right now, but I just adore the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper and wanted to base my card on the gorgeous shades of green. Hunter selected my stamp sets for me based on the leafy design. I think it turned out so pretty!

Seaside Dandelion

I decided to emboss the dandelion in white for a subtle background look. Here’s a close-up view for you:

The addition of Flax Ribbon and the Frosted Epoxy Droplet on the banner are the perfect finishers.
