Congrats to Sylvia Blum (aka ~Fee~) the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast (FS307)! Such a fabulous gallery! After much browsing, I chose her beautiful Warm Winter Wishes to case. I kept a lot of the original because I loved the layout, the colors and snowflakes. But I changed the images, left off the scallop border and added glittery embossing instead of the pearl flourishes.
The images are all from Our Daily Bread designs. On the large ivory background, I stamped the Snowflake Bg w/ the celadon ink and embossed it w/ the stardust embossing powder. Then I sponged it pretty much all over using the soft vanilla ink and the sponged the edges w/ the teal ink. On the textured teal designer paper, I stamped the individual snowflakes (Sparkling Snowflakes) in VersaMark and embossed w/ the same powder and sponged w/ the same two colors of inks. The snowflakes were stamped again on ivory w/ the celadon ink, embossed and die cut (the larger ones have matching dies) and the two smaller ones were fussy cut, layered on top of each other w/ a rhinestone brad inserted thru the middle. The sentiment was also embossed, die cut & sponged w/ the die in place. I couldn’t find my seam tape for the ribbon like Sylvia used, so I used some hem tape and colored it w/ Copics and the teal ink. I also used a Copic marker to color the rhinestone in the brad.
Merry Christmas and thanks so much for stopping by! Congrats again, Sylvia, and enjoy your week!
