Stampin’ Up! So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder

Hello there! Today’s card features the extra gorgeous So Many Snowflakes Dies and I paired it with Snow Wonder stamp set for the sentiment on the front. What was extra fun was using the new SU! Blending Brushes ~ they are wonderful!!! And… they come in a 3-pack – eeeee. For some reason I cannot get my computer to allow me to share a photo of the brushes – but they are awesome… and will be available in the upcoming Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog.

Now – to the card… here’s a sneak peek…

So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #1

The how to :O)…

  • Die cut the largest snowflake from Whisper White card stock using the So Many Snowflakes Dies
  • Using that panel and one of the new Blending Brushes, tap the brush in Balmy Blue ink and blend the color, creating a shadow of snowflakes on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White card stock. Continue to cover, moving the snowflake ‘stencil’ around so there are several shadows on the panel. It should look something like this. Notice there are varying shades of the Balmy Blue ink.

  • Cut an Adhesive Sheet to 4 x 5 1/4, peel the backing and adhere to a panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White card stock
  • Die cut several snowflakes of varying sizes using the So Many Snowflakes Dies and the Whisper White card stock with the Adhesive Sheet on it.
  • Remove the backing on the die cut snowflakes one at a time as you lay them on the ‘shadowed’ card front
  • Stamp the sentiment using the Snow Wonder stamp set in Balmy Blue ink on a 1 x 4 strip of Whisper White
  • Adhere this to a 1 1/4 x 4 strip of Balmy Blue card stock
  • Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front using dimensionals
  • Die cut yet another snowflake, this time from the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper – love this paper! Adhere to the sentiment panel with a couple of dots of liquid glue.
  • Add some glittery Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to several of the snowflakes
  • Adhere this panel to the Balmy Blue card base (4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2) and the card front is done.
So Many Snowflakes Dies & Snow Wonder – #3

The inside & the envelope…

You can see in the photo above and below that I used one of the die cut ‘outlines’ as a stencil, the Blending Brush and Balmy Blue ink. I did this on the envelope front and on the envelope flap. I also did it on the 4 x 5 1/4 panel of Whisper White for the inside of the card. Then I adhered one of the leftover die cut snowflakes that had adhesive on the back and placed it over one of the snowflakes stenciled on the panel. I liked the effect this created. This panel was adhered to the inside of the card base and voila…

SU!Snow Wonder w/ Snow Time Dies

Hi Everyone! Hurricane Fay was in the area yesterday ~ dropped lots of rain and w-i-n-d-y. Thankfully no damage; some branches down but that’s about it. Whew! Today is Saturday and I’m calling it Snowman Saturday. Yep – Snowman… right after a hurricane, right? Ha! I was ready and wanting to play with the Snow Wonder stamp set and it’s coordinating Snow Time Dies. And I have created two cards for your cards for your pleasure. Let’s take a look.

#1

Snow Wonder and Z Fold
#2

Aren’t these fun? Let me tell you about card #1 first… Seaside Spray card base is the standard 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 scored @ 4 1/4. Layer a Whisper White 4 x 5 1/4 panel that has been run through the Evergreen Forrest 3D embossing folder¬† (this is a stunning embossing folder!). I ruffled the edges with my scissors then adhered with Stampin Seal, but left the edges free. Next I stamped the snowman from the new Snow Wonder stamp set in stamped off once Tuxedo Black Memento ink, then colored him with our colored pencil: Granny Apple Green, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Pumpkin P{ie and Balmy Blue. Use the blender pen for the hat to smooth the lines of the pencil. Then die cut this with the Snow Time Dies and adhere with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White in Seaside Spray and die cut with the Snow Time Dies. I cut another banner out of Seaside Spray, cut it in half lengthwise and adhered to the back of the Whisper White. Put this on dimensionals as well and adhere to the card front. Add those sweet little Adhesive-Backed Snowflakes and the front is done.

#1a

For the inside I took another panel of 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White and stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce, stamping off once on a scrap first. Then I stamped the sentiment in Seaside Spray, adhered this panel to the inside with liquid glue and done, done done.

Card #2 is a Z fold card again and is so much fun to do – so many options for variety. Just look at yesterday’s card that was a double Z fold to get an idea… anyway, today’s second card… Seaside Spray cut 4 1`/4 x 11 and scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 on the long side. Highland Heather is 3 1/4 x 10 scored at 2 3/4 x 5 1/2. The Whisper White panels are 3 x 4 1/4 and (2) 3 x 2 1/2.

Snow Wonder stamp set #2a

The largest panel is the adorable snowman, colored just as card #1. I added the adorable adhesive- backed snowflakes then the sentiment stamped in Balmy Blue. These were just scraps. The next panel is Snowflake Splendor DSP (awesome DSP!).The wreath is stamped off once in Shaded Spruce and the ribbon highlighted with Wink of Stella. The sentiment comes from the Dove of Hope stamp set and stamped in Highland Heather. The bottom panel is from Snow Wonder stamp set in Seaside Spray. The snowflakes were stamped in Versamark then heat embossed in white. Once the embossing had cooled, I used a sponge to very lightly color the snowflakes with Seaside Spray. Adhere each of the white panels in the appropriate place on the Highland Heather Z fold. This gets adhered to the Seaside Spray, top panel first, but only a portion of it… center it on the SMALL section of the Seaside Spray and add liquid glue just to the upper¬† panel. Lay the entire card flat and adhere the bottom panel. And you are done! Wasn’t that easy? Two cards so different from the other but using the same stamp set. YAY!
