Hello everyone! I’m over on the Pink & Main blog today with a sneak peek of the December release and some inspiration using the Stamp and Die of the Month – Snow One Like You. How sweet are these little penguins having a snow ball fight?!? I totally adore them!
I started off by playing with the upcoming Snowflake embossing folder. I inked up one side with my Embossing & Watermark ink pad, then I ran it through the die cut machine with white cardstock. Then I sprinkled on some new denim embossing powder. This new deep blue is so gorgeous! I heated that up and set the panel aside. Next, I grabbed a scrap of white cardstock and smeared my embossing ink across the long edge and covered it with more denim embossing powder.
But wait! I wasn’t done playing with some of the new colors of embossing powder coming your way so I stamped some snowflakes from the stamp set and embossed them with chameleon. It totally changes color and is so gorgeous! I used the coordinating dies to cut those out and set them aside too.
Finally, I stamped two of the penguins from Snow One Like You and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and started arranging my mini scenes. That’s when I thought it would be fun to use sentiment strips as my ground for each one. So I stamped and heat embossed those and used my favorite strip dies from the Sunny Greeting die set to cut them out.
I adhered a strip of the embossing scrap to the edge of my note card. Then I trimmed the snowflakes down to 4×5.5 inches and popped them up with foam tape. I also added foam squares to the snowflakes, images and sentiment strips before adhering them to the card front too.
I kept the finishing touches simple because there is so much sparkle in the embossing powder. I added Touch of Gloss to the penguin beaks and this guy’s feet. Then I also came in and added some to the edges of their snowballs and hills.
I like to have winter themed thank you cards on hand for gifts during the holidays so I’m really happy to have such a variety of fabulous sentiments in this stamp set. The images are so adorable and fun to color too!
