Furry Friends

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous team is sharing projects that are "Snow Wonderful." That is, they've got some snow elements on them. My card features Furry Friends, which is a very sweet image. Here's how to make it. 

Instructions:

  1. I stamped out and then colored the Furry Friends image with the Chameleon Pens listed in the supplies. Next, she fussy cut the image out, but left a thin white border around the image so as to not lose the fuzziness of the animals. 
  2. The card base was cut to 5 1/2" x 8." The color is called Tropical.
  3. I then used 2 Spellbinders Card Creator dies to cut the mats. She used 2 Scoops in Cookies & Cream (the pre-textured cardstock), and Kachina. 
  4. On the Kachina piece of cardstock, I took Pearlescent Embossing Paste and applied it to look like snow around all 4 edges with her palette knife, doing 2 sides at a time. She then sprinkled Crystal Embossing Powder on the first 2 sides, and heat set it. She next repeated this on the 2 other sides. 
  5. Next, Chestnut Roan ink was applied to the Cookies & Cream colored cardstock around the edges. Versamark Watermark Ink was applied to the card base around all 4 edges, and then Vintage Lilac Embossing Tinsel was sprinkled on to the edges and heat set. 
  6. All layers were then glued, and 2 foam dots were applied to the antlers and bird to accommodate the thickness of the card.

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!
