Inspire Me Friday – {let it snow!}

Happy Friday everyone!  Rosemary here with a new Inspire Me Friday post.   I’m sharing a card today that I made using the Everyday stamp set along with the fun Oh Christmas stamp set.  My card isn’t a Christmas card, but one that you could send out at any time during the winter season.

let it snow

I started with a A2 sized piece of white cardstock and stamped the background image from the Everyday stamp set that looks like a snow flurry across the top of the piece in watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set.  I then pulled out my Distress Oxide inks and lightly inked up the top of the panel where the embossing is with Broken China distress oxide ink and fading it out toward the middle of the card.   I placed my panel in my stamping tool and then using a scalloped rectangle die as a guide I placed the sentiment from Oh Christmas on the panel.  I removed the die and then stamped the sentiment in VersaFine CLAIR Morning Mist ink.  The panel was then die cut with the scalloped rectangle die.    I set aside the die cut rectangle and then adhered the panel to a white cardstock base.  The rectangle was then adhered using foam dimensionals.  I finished with some white baker’s twine tied in a bow.    I really like the way the stamped image looks like a flurry of snow!

Project Thursday ~ A Thank You Card

I stamped the leaves on vellum paper with VersaFine Clair – Summertime, sprinkled with some clear embossing powder, and heat it up with craft heater. After that I fussy cut the leaves with scissors.

For the sentiment, I stamped on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair – Pinecone and then I trimmed it into a sentiment strip that fits on top of the wreath.

On a piece of white cardstock that I trimmed into 4 inch x 5.5 inch. I added some gold splatter on it with Finetec Gold Paint and small flat waterbrush. I dried it with craft heater and added it on a kraf card with adhesive glue.

I found this paper rope in my stash box and I used it as the wreath. I shaped it into circles and added it on the card with adhesive glue. I held it down until the glue dried with couple acrylic blocks for couple of minutes.

I added couple of the vellum embossed leaves on the wreath with adhesive glue, and then I added the sentiment strip on it with 3D foam tape.

I hope you all like this clean-and-simple card with a twist of layers. Thank you so much for stopping by!
