‘Tis the Season

‘Tis the season for snowflakes and Christmas.  On Thursday something rare happened…it snowed in San Antonio.  We got about 2 inches of snow and for about a day we had a glimpse of a white Christmas.  It was lovely. The snowfall inspired me to create Christmas card based on the color challenge of Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Twist.

I used these the snowflake dies from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits to die cut the snowflakes from Silver Glimmer paper then sponged them with Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lemon Twist.  The background layer I embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing folder.  I embellished with basic rhinestones, gold satin ribbon and gold sequin trip.  The sentiment is from the Christmas Pines stamp set which I stamped with Black and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for sparkle.

See more inspiration at Hand Stamped Sentiments from their design team.

Wonderfall Leaves Easel Card

I created this easel card with the fabulous Wonderfall stamp set and Autumn Accents die.  The card base was die cut with the Floral Framelits.  The technique I used to color the leaves I learned at convention.  The large leaf was stamped in More Mustard.  I then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze and distressed the leaf by folding it in my hand.  I opened up the leaf then took my Raspberry Ripple ink pad and stamped the leaf with the ink pad.  The folds picked up the ink fabulously!  I used the same technique for the smaller leaf.

I embossed the Very Vanilla background layer for the card with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the Very Vanilla bottom layer I stamped the image with the Daydream Medallions then die cut it with the Floral Framelits.  I used the rock’n roll technique for the sentiment.  I always forget about this technique and need to use it more.
