Snowflake card

I can't believe my last update was almost a month ago. First my husband was sick, then I and after that my youngest son. I needed some time to get on track with all the cleaning and piles of laundry, but now I'm all well and ready to do some crafting.

I made a card for a challenge at Crafty Creations, where we needed to make a snowy creations. I don't have a snowman stamp, so I made mine with snowflakes.
I stamped acetate with black StazOn, left to dry, then poured some Crystal Effect in the middle, dropped a few drops of reinkers and spread all over the acetate. Then I sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds, crumpled some tissue paper and then spread it all over the acetate. It is a neat technique I learned from Judy Watanabe.

Cards are way prettier in real life. I just couldn't capture all the sparkle.


Stamp:   Snow Swirled, Serene Snowflakes, Merry Merry Messages
Cardstock:  Ballet Blue, Whisper White
Ink:   Black StazOn
Reinkers: Orchid Opulence, Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue
Accessories: Window sheets, Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, dimensionals, 

Fifth Avenue Floral

This card was made for Stamping 411 challenge.

I never tried the techique with shimmery paper and reinkers. I did with the regular Whisper White paper, but now I can see the difference. Shimmer paper doesn't curl that much and absorb ink slower, so colors can blend much nicely.

Long time no see

It was a while since I last updated my blog. School started here in NY and with three kids, that is quite an adventure. Filling and signing a million forms, shopping for supplies, choosing after school activities, took all the creativity out of me.

Now, once again, everything is a routine, so I'm back to creating.
Since I first saw the For All You Do stamp set in the new SU Catalog, I fell in love with it.
I got it last month for my class, but never made anything else with it.

As I had some leftovers from the class, I decided to make some cards.
Searching for my mojo I first made a copy of the card on pg.6. OMG such a cute card, isn't it?
It's size is 3.5 x 5.
