Day 5 of Holiday Countdown: Snowflake Cards

Share |
Here is one of my all-time favourite snowflake sets that Stampin' Up! retired a few years ago: "Enchanted Snowflakes".

I loved the funky-ness of the flakes, and it really appealed to my non-traditional style that occasionally needs letting out of the closet (the same me that once had Rose Red red hair, nose rings and multiple tattoos!)

This technique of "enamelling" requires you to make mutiple layers of heated embossing powder until it basically puddles into a steaming pile of lava. Okay, not really, but it will be melted and so you can press in your stamp and allow the EP to cool around it. Don't worry about damaging your stamp -- they can handle the heat!

I then trimmed the image out, layered it on burgundy and then my glorious Shimmery White paper. Gawwwwwgeous, if I say so myself!

My second card uses the same set, and a dual embossing technique of Gold and Silver powders. We'll be using this technique at Saturday's Holiday 10 card camp, but we'll use "The Snowflake Spot" set instead, to keep things current.

Brushed gold and silver cardstocks keep things shimmery in a low-key way, and it creates a cool effect in all.

AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION
C'mon... I know you're out there :) Let me know you popped by! Just say hello -- I'd love to hear from you.

HAPPY STAMPING!

I LOVE that top one...can we do that one tomorrow night, can we, can we, huh, can we.....
 
Hi Caroline!

Both of those cards are gorgeous!
Would you tell us more about gold&silver embossing?

The top card, embossed in lava, I have heard of but never tried. Your single snowflake is stunning!
