SUO191 Thoughts and Prayers
It’s time for the #191 Brrr...Baby It’s Cold Outside at SU-Only Challenges!
The weather here on the East Coast has been extremely cold so I decided to create a card using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set along with a few die cuts and a sentiment from Rose Wonder. We have not had a lot of snow yet, but snowflakes remind me of the cold :-)
I have had the Flurry of Wishes stamp set for over a year and this is the first time I have had a chance to ink it up! That is one of my goals again for this year- use the stamps that have not seen ink in a while :-)
I am also linking this card to the As You See It #166 “Sparkle”Challenge (it is hard to see the glitter in the background but it is there and the card is very sparkly:-)).
If you have not had a chance to stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team’s samples or the other challenge sites yet, I encourage you to do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with an Embossing Buddy®, ink the snowflake images from Flurry of Wishes and stamp onto the panel. Once the embossing has cooled, tap the Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink Pad onto a silicone craft mat, lightly spritz with water and press the embossed panel into the ink. Lift up and repeat the process with Dapper Denim and Island Indigo Classic Ink.
2). Allow the panel to dry and use a Sponge Dauber with the same colors of ink in Step #1 to add additional color to the background. Add a bit of distressing using the splatter stamp from Awesomely Artistic with Island Indigo Classic Ink.Trim the panel and mount onto an Extra Thick Whisper White card base.
3). Die cut several snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits™ from Whisper White cardstock.
4). Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Island Indigo Classic Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Die cut with the Stitched Shaped Framelits™ , use a sponge dauber to apply a bit of Island Indigo Classic Ink around the edges. Mount onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
5). Add the die cut snowflakes to the card front along with a few Rhinestones to the centers.
6). Finish off the card using Clear Wink of Stella® over the snowflakes.
