I have chosen the following sets to feature here today:
For my first card, I started by embossing the "Snowflake Background" and sentiment from "Snowy Blessings" with copper embossing powder, then added some sponging, paper piercing, pearls, and a Bo Bunny "Snowfall" embellishment which matched perfectly.
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Snowflake Background' and 'Snowy Blessings';
Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Not Quite Navy' and 'Very Vanilla';
Ink: Versamark Pad (for embossing), Ranger 'Antique Linen' and Stampin' Up 'Not Quite Navy';
Accessories: Bo Bunny 'Snowfall' Trinket, Ranger Copper Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, paper piercer and template, foam tape, sponge daubers, Zva Creative pearls;
My second sample features "Sparkling Snowflakes", which I embossed on white cardstock with Holographic Embossing Powder (it's difficult to photograph, but there is a rainbow of colors in there!), cut them out with the new "ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders Snowflakes Die Set", then sponged the edges (and centers) to make them stand out! The sentiment is from "Snowflake Sentiments". When finished, I sprayed lots of 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist for some added sparkle against the amethyst card.
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Sparkling Snowflakes' and 'Snowflake Sentiments';
Cardstock: Stampin Up 'Almost Amethyst' (retired) and 'Whisper White';
Ink: Versamark (embossing) and Stampin Up 'Elegant Eggplant';
Accessories: ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders Snowflakes Dies, May Arts Ric-rac, Zva Creative Pearls, 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist, Stampin Up 'Hologram Highlights' Embossing Powder, Corner Rounder;
Lastly, I made a gift tag with the new Snowflake Dies. I scored and folded a piece of cardstock, cut the shaped card (see tutorial here) just as I do with full size cards, then cut a piece of designer paper to adhere to the top layer in order to hide the flat fold of the card. I had planned on layering several snowflakes, but my back gave out, so I added a rhinestone to the second snowflake and called it a night! :)
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Sparkling Snowflakes' (on Kraft layer);
Ink: Stazon White and Ranger 'Antique Linen' (sponging on the green);
Accessories: ODBD Exclusive Spellbinders Snowflakes Die Set, Zva Rhinestone.
