Let There Be Snow...

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog...thank you for joining us for last week's "Christmas Gifts" challenge...we hope you can join us this week because...

and the theme for this week is...
and no snow in my neck of the woods yet...only on the Christmas cards
and here's the last one to leave the production line...
I used paper from the gorgeous Kaisercraft Frosted Collection...tore a snow bank from white cardstock...stamped the snowflake from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Weathered Winter with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and inked around the edges with Ground Espresso.
I die cut a tree using Sizzix/Tim Holtz Woodlands Thinlits,...inked around the edges...fixed in place with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and created splatters with Picket Fence Distress Paint.
I spritzed contrasting papers with Brushed Pewter Distress Mica Spray and Picket Fence Distress Spray Stain and die cut snowflakes using Sizzix/Tim Holtz Stacked Snowflakes BigZ die.
added die cuts from the Frosted Collectables pack...sequins and Eclectic Elements thread
sprinkled with Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder...
and stamped the sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Holiday Drawings inked with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.

  18. Hi Kath and Buddy, I had to write and say how much I like the project you created for today over on the SSS Blog. Could not figure out how to comment there. I especially like that you used the Stampendous Frantage product. To me it looks so much more like real snow as compared to the ever popular "Let's sneeze on top of a container of white paint and see where it lands". Happy Holidays.

  19. Beyond beautiful, Kath... maybe one of my favourite winter projects ever - it's so delicate and ethereal, and the colours are pure perfection as far as I'm concerned. Love, love, love it!
