For Day 3, we are showcasing the Snow Angel Newton Stamp Set and Dies, Snow Angel Puppy Stamp Set and dies and the Roll With It Stamp Set.
The first and second card samples are completely the same design. I started by stamping both images from the Snow Angel Newton and Snow Angel Puppy on some Neenah Solar white Card Stock. I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating die. I did use my precision snips to cut out the “wings”.
Next, I ink-blended two panels (measuring 4 x 5 1/4) of Bristol Smooth white card stock with Salvaged Patina (for the blue card) and Kitsch Flamingo (for the pink card. I stamped the images on both panels with Versamark ink and embossed the image with white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool. I used the coordinating die and die-cut some masking paper to mask off the images. Since I was planning to add texture paste to the ink-blended backgrounds, I didn’t want the image covered with paste.
I used the Petite Snow stencil and texture paste for added texture to the background. Using Therm-O-Web’s Stencil Pal made it easier to spread the paste evenly on both panels. I removed the mask and set both card panels aside to let it dry for half an hour.
I adhered the colored images on the card with liquid glue. I also stamped the sentiment on black card stock with Versamark ink and heat-set with the heating tool, then adhered on the panel with liquid glue.
Lastly, I added the black & white stripes pattern paper on two A2-size notecards, then added the focal panel with liquid glue.
For my next card, I repeated the same steps above for stamping and die-cutting using the images from Snow Much Cheer.
For my card layout, I used the Slimline Frames and Porthole Die Set to die-cut the scallop on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock. I ink-blended this panel using the Slimline Masking Square Stencil and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink.
I foam-mounted the focal panel on some Red Slimline card base measuring 8 1/2 by 3 1/2. I adhered the images on the card and stamped the sentiment in t he middle square with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the letters and the snowman’s head with alcohol markers.
I finished my card design by adding some glittered stars. I love how this card turned out!
