Snowflake Edges with Glitter & Flourishes (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a terrific week.

I have a few more Christmas designs to show you today using the the new Winter Edges set.  The edge stamps are great for quick makes and detailed cards.


To create the background above I sprayed Calypso Teal & Linen Dylusions Inks, spritzed with a little water and added a little sea salt here & there.   When dry, I embossed the Snowflake & Village edges from Winter Edges with Wow-Black Twinkle which has lots of glitter.    I added little holograph circle stickers to the centers of the snowflakes.  Warm Winter Wishes is from Warm Christmas Greetings.

I also used the fabulous Snowflake Ornament from Snowflake Flourish for the card below.


I created the background with Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks using the Acrylic Block technique.   Both snowflakes edge stamps from Winter Edges were stamped with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.    I also stamped a snowflake from Snowflake Flourish with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.   The Ornament from Snowflake Flourish was embossed with a blue glitter powder on separate card stock and coloured with a Tombow marker.  I added lots of rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes.   Merry Christmas is also from Warm Christmas Greetings.



I have one more design using the Snowflake Flourish & Winter Edges sets.


The background is London Blue & Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions Inks.   I stamped the Snowflake edge on the left & right hand sides with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.   When dry I embossed the beautiful snowflake flourish with silver.    I also embossed the Ornament, coloured with Tombows markers and decoupaged it onto the background.  I added lots of Stardust Stickles and rhinestones.
 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can come back often to see what my talented teammates have created.

Have a great day,
Shirley

  3. I know I've said it before but your matting is just a joy to see - it sends little shivers of delight up my back when I see what you do. Your use of gems, embossing & glitter is striking in all of these but I think the green one has to be my favourite. I always fall for the green!!
