What does a Florida girl like me know about snow? What I DO know is that the FABULOUS new Precious Remembrance stamp set Oh Christmas inspired me to create this snowy tag and card for some lucky friend at Christmas!
First up is my tag:
First I stamped the words let it snow three times on the tag with Versamark and white embossing powder. I wanted to make a resist so when I added the four colors of distress ink, the words would still stand out. I also added some paper squares in three sizes from large at the top of the tag to small at the bottom. They were left over pieces from a die cut that I knew I would find a use for. They add dimension and unexpected texture to my tag. I also added glitter just to the squares.
Then I spritzed the ink with water to make the streaky, drippy, pretty background. The white dots of snow all over the tag are made from combining the dots from the Precious Remembrance Fall Colors Stamp Set on one stamping block, stamping with Versamark and embossing with white embossing powder. To create the “snow” around the edge of my tag, I pressed the edges in Versamark and coated them in white embossing powder which I heat set.
And I just couldn’t stop there, I made a quick card with the same thought process:
But this time I used small iridescent snowflakes to make a flat Christmas card for mailing. I stamped the sentiment the third time by masking the stamp.
I hope you like my snow inspired tag and card! Thanks for stopping by!
