Swirling Snowflakes: Day 6 of the S&S 12 Days of Christmas

Hello! Today I have a snowflake card to share with you. It’s kind of a basic card…no coloring involved, but I had a lot of embossing to do on it.

I used 2 images from Tattered Angels. I started off with the large snowflake…inked it, embossed it, and then added the swirl. I inked the edge of the patterned paper in dark blue. I also did it on the card base. But, I embossed with the same gold (Queen’s Gold from Ranger) on top of of the blue, so only a little blue shows. But the added gold was necessary in my eyes.

Isn’t it a pretty gold? It’s my favorite that I have. It’s so bright. Last, I added some pearl cabochons from Recollections randomly. I liked the extra texture.

I think this is the shortest post I’ve had in a long time! Please be sure to stop by the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
