Trying something New!!~Holiday Snow~

Happy Tues. All!

Hi~ya All!

Hope all is well, on this cool Tuesday. The weather is certainly changing fast, of course it is fall. I seem to be getting into the mood for the upcoming holidays, finished a little card that I started last week. It was done by inking my CB folder, with some SU ink, then I glittered some of the snowflakes, and placed it on a piece of mirror-image card stock. Used my drippy-goo punch, SU stamps, ribbon, and punches, two Christmas stamps and some jeweled stick-ons from my stash. Also used JOTS for the snowflake. Whaa-Laa, a simple little card. I like the effects of inking my CB folder, will have to try this again soon. Have you tried it yet? Check it out for a different look.

Card Recipe:

Snowflake folder, Cuttlebug
SU Ink pads-Soft Sky, Blue Bayou
SU Whisper White cardstock
SU Ribbon- Soft Sky
SU-Celebrate the season,stamp, and round and scalloped punches
SU-Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
Mirror board-Light Aqua
MS- Drippy Goo punch
Soft Brayer for inking the folder
Inkadinkadoo stamp-Let it Snow, Seasons greetings, Snowflakes
Heros Art- Inside sentiment
JOTs cartridge-Snowflake
Embellishments-my stash

Use brayer to ink your embossing folder well, then emboss in the CB, and let dry. You are inking the debossing-side, so the snowflake will be white. Wipe your embossing folder with a baby wipe to remove the ink. Do not use staz-on or any permanent type ink. Use one that will wash off with soap and water. Enjoy!

Well that's it for today folks, enjoy the rest of your week!
