Let it Snow
I really don't want it to snow yet but I do like the new Let it snow stamp from Quietfire Design.... and the new Tim Holtz winter wonder die, snow flurries on-the-edge die, and snow flurries texture fade folder are all fabulous!!!! For the background I used the texture fade to emboss.. keeping the embossing more to the left so I had a small unembossed area along the right to stamp in. A blending tool and foam with tumbled glass ink (I just used the left over ink already on the pad as I didn't want it too dark) was rubbed over the embossed snowflakes. "Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow" was stamped along the right with black ink... I stamped first in the middle and then again before and after letting it run off the page. The dies were cut from white cardstock... 1 snowman, 3 snowflakes, and 1 border. The individual snowflakes and border have Distress Stickles on them... rock candy on the individual snowflakes and then because I am AGAIN running low on rock candy I used picket fence on the border which actually works very well for snow. For the snowman I masked off the arms and nose, then used tumbled glass around the snowman and black soot on the hat... the arms are brushed corduroy and the nose is rusty hinge. The folded base is pink.. I sponged a little tumbled glass along the very edge which made purple. It's all finished off with ribbon, buttons, and sticky back gems.
