I’m playing along at Muse tonight, where the lovely Therese has given us our inspiration this week … a fabulous cascade of tumbling snowflakes in an array of lilac, lavender and purple … just delicious … see below. I don’t often use these colours, so it was a great opportunity to tinker about with them … that’s what challenges are for, right? I’m also playing along with Simon Says Stamp Monday, where we need to use ink in some way … I used it stamping.
The snowflakes and sentiment are from Uniko Studio … more of my happy package following the October Blog Hop. I really, really wanted to use one of the the snowflake dies … but as I don’t have a C plate for my Cuttlebug (never used it for cutting), there was nothing for it but to get inventive. One very slim chopping board and two layers of chipboard later (that’s the abridged version … there were
tons of some other less successful experiments), I managed to cut two snowflakes … oh joy!
I used one of those precious snowflakes, embossed in holographic EP on top of silver EP and popped up on deep foam dots. The other two snowflakes were stamped and twinkled with a Wink of Stella, one direct to the card and one trimmed out and popped up on shallow foam dots. All three have a colour matched centre bling. The sentiment’s double stamped … once to match the darker snowflake, once in Versamark to get it holographically embossed and sparkly.
My learning point from this evening’s card making? I need to get a C plate! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments make my day! Anita 🙂
