Hello, fabulous ladies! :)
Can you believe it is December 1st???
Just in case you didn't know, the FIRST WEDNESDAY of every month, MFT has a new stamp release. This Wednesday at 10:30 pm ET (Dec 3rd) THREE new sets will be released and I love them all! I had a REALLY hard time deciding which of my samples to post first. LOL Flopsey won the coin toss! *wink*
This card uses the new set "Snow Bunny Flopsey" that will be released on Wed. I stamped in Black Memento and colored with my Copics. I wanted to go monochromatic, so I used a couple shades of brown as well as some aged copper. The scarf, hat and mittens were colored using some shimmery watercolors sold by MFT (currently out of stock). To create the big ol' snowflake cluster (Inspired by Anna Wight), I colored a HUGE chipboard snowflake (Bazzill I think) with some shimmery watercolor paints, then I dabbed crystal effects all over it and poured Diamond Dust (chunky glass glitter) over it. I added a Heidi Swapp ghost shape snowflake (duh), a punched Martha Stewart snowflake and some punches Martha Stewart sprigs (that AMY made me buy!). I originally made this card using an SCS sketch challenge, but the embellishments and dimensions weren't working, so I abandoned the sketch and added another panel to create a 5 1/2 inch square card. Sometimes you just have to do what you can to salvage it KWIM?
- If something is not working, change it! My layout was unbalanced and wonky because my chipboard snowflake was so big so I UPsized my card and then it worked.
- When making a card that weighs 10 pounds (okay, maybe not 10 pounds, but this is definitely not a one stamp card) make sure you adhere your heavy layers with red line tape.
