Glittery Snowflakes

I was walking through my bedroom and as I passed the box of Stampin' Up! stuff that is waiting to be passed out in the next few days I caught a glimpse of this paper from Dashing designer series paper. I knew I still had this piece left in my stash, so I pulled it out to use today. This is the Sketch Challenge for this week. I added to the main panel by adding a row of scallops onto my main panel, but otherwise I stuck to the original layout.

I wanted to have some nicely falling snow in the background, so I stamped the image in Versamark, poured on Heat and Stick powder. After it was melted I poured on Dazzling Diamonds, heat set it again and I had some nice glittery snowflakes playing on my card. I can't tell you how hard it is to photograph glitter. I am still struggling with that.

From there my card is fairly simple. The main image from Seasonal Whimsy is stamped in Blue Bayou and matted on Real Red and Basic Gray. I love how this paper takes on a warm blue tone when mixed with these colors. It's almost like a chameleon color and goes with anything. It really is one of my favorite neutrals now.

Stamps: Seasonal Whimsy
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Dashing dsp, Basic Gray
Ink: Versamark, Blue Bayou
Accessories: slit punch, 1/16" hole punch, vintage brads, 5/8" real red grosgrain, heat and stick powder, dazzling diamonds, heat gun, dimensionals
