I {Heart} Snow

Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Since many places across the United States are dealing with Snow, snow, and more SNOW, I thought it would be a great idea to make a snow'y card. 

I used two stamp sets from the SumMore Fun store to make it. Raisin Boat's Winter Heart and Sole provided the gorgeous tree and snowflakes and Victorine Originals Watercolor Snowman provided the specks of snow, the snowbank, and the sentiment.




I first stamped the tree with Memento Cottage Ivy Ink. Once the ink was dry, I dabbed Versamark Ink on the tree and added white embossing powder to it. I wanted the tree to look like it had snow hanging on it. 

The snowflakes, specks of snow, and snow bank are all stamped with Versafine Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder, too.

A couple of snowflake brads and a squirrel brad, too, add some interest and dimension to the card.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Ice Skating Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses the Raisin Boat Winter Heart and Sole stamp set.
I created the winter woods scene using the pine tree from the Winter Heart and Sole stamp set and Distress Oxides in Pine Needles and Walnut Stain.  I stamped a tree, then did a second and even third generation stamping without re-inking.  I liked the feeling of depth that created.  Then I used an aqua brush and Pumice Stone Distress Oxide and made the ground around the trees.  The icy water was created by watering down Sapphire Swift Sparkling Unicorn Spit and painting it on the cardstock.  It is so shimmery in real life!  I then stamped the ice skates from Winter Heart and Sole in black and matted it with die cut circles.  I watercolored them with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide and undiluted Sapphire Swift Sparkling Unicorn Spit.  I added some In The Navy Trendy Twine and the sentiment stamp and the card was complete!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Snow and Ice - No problem!


Hello, Jeanette here from the design team. I'm glad you've stopped by the blog today!

I am actually out of state for a meeting - but IF I were home I would be dealing with a lot of snow and maybe even some ice. My state is in a Winter Storm area this weekend. 

But that's okay... when it snows we can just stay inside and make cards, right?

Speaking of cards, I made a super fast one to share with you today. You know card making doesn't have to be laborious... and with the versatility of Victorine Originals and Raisin Boat stamp sets we can go fast/easy sometimes.


Sentiment - 
Snow, ice, chilly day...
love it out here anyway.



Look! I added a Snowflake Brad 
and some glitter brads to the center 
of the snowflakes on the designer paper.

A few layers of paper... and my card is finished.

Thanks again for stopping by! I hope we'll see you again soon! And be sure to go to the SumMore Fun store where there are a lot of items on sale!
