Today’s snowflake card has Merry Christmas singing the “blues!” Included on the card are the following new products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog, available starting Sept. 5: Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets, Merry Christmas to All Photopolymer Stamp Set, Merry Christmas Thinlits Die (the stamp set and coordinating die will be available as a 10% off bundle) and the Blizzard Thinlits Die.
Check out all the snowflakes the Blizzard Thinlits Die makes. I can’t wait to use the remaining “negative” space – see top of photo).
STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:
Create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base with Balmy Blue card stock and the Stampin’ Trimmer. Layer a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Night of Navy card stock on top and adhere with Snail Adhesive.
Use a Sponge Dauber to add “stripes” of Balmy Blue (top), Pacific Point (middle) and Night of Navy (bottom) ink to an approximately 5 x 2 piece of Whisper White card stock. Crop “Merry” centered on the three blues using the die from Stampin’ Up! Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. Adhere with an adhesive of your choice to a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White card stock. I used little dabs of Snail Adhesive.
Stamp “Christmas” (Merry Christmas to All Photopolymer Stamp Set) with VersaMark Ink on Night of Navy card stock. Heat emboss with the Heat Tool and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Trim to approximately 2 x 1/2. TIP: I used the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and the straight die with two flagged ends from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies to crop “Christmas” evenly. I snipped off the flagged ends. Adhere as shown using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Crop snowflakes using Whisper White card stock, the Stampin’ Up! Blizzard Thinlits Die, the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Precision Base Plate. TIP: The Precision Base Plate will improve cutting results dramatically when using the Blizzard Thinlits die. Adhere snowflakes to the Whisper White layer as shown using Snail Adhesive in the center.
TURN ON THE LIGHTS! Add large and small frosted (self-adhesive) droplets from Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets to the snowflake centers. They catch the light and look like mini Christmas lights! Adhere Whisper White Layer to card base with Snail Adhesive.
Stamp interior sentiment (Merry Christmas to All) using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool in Night of Navy ink on a 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Whisper White card stock. Add 2 more die cut snowflakes. Adhere with Snail Adhesive to a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Night of Navy card stock and then adhere to the interior of the card.
