Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
When I saw the colors this week, I first thought…”ocean”. So I headed to the Whale Done bundle and Whale of a Time DSP. But THEN….I thought…SNOW! So, I totally pivoted and went for the new Snowflake Splendor Suite goodies in the Aug – Dec 2020 Mini Catalog (available to customers on 4 Aug!). Take a look-see:
And here’s our oceany/snowflakey color challenge this week (I picked Balmy Blue for my fourth color)!
I used the sketch side of the current FUSION challenge for the layout.
I started with a piece of Pool Party paper from the Snowflake Splendor DSP and I embossed it in the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (coming on 4 Aug), then I matted it on Pacific Point for the card front.
Next, using the smallest square Stitched Shapes Dies, I cut 12 squares from a different paper in the Snowflake Splendor DSP. Using Liquid Glue, I adhered them in a grid on the card front.
Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a few loops of new Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon (also coming on 4 Aug).
With the So Many Snowflakes dies – the MOST wunnermus die set bundled with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in the suite – I cut some Whisper White snowflakes and some Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper (loooooove this!!!). I adhered them here, there and everywhere on the card front with Liquid Glue.
On a strip of Whisper White, in Just Jade ink, I stamped the Snowflake Wishes sentiment. I snipped banner-ends with my Paper Snips and popped the banner onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems (part of the suite and available on 4 Aug) and some Pool Party gems from the Holiday Rhinestones (available right now in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog). And that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Snowflake Wishes in Just Jade on a Whisper White panel. I added some stamped snowflakes in Pool Party and Balmy Blue, and adhered a die cut Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper snowflake. I added some Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems and Holiday Rhinestones, just cuz I could!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pacific Point mat and into my Just Jade card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Snowflake Wishes snowflakes on the front…
…and a little more Snowflake Splendor DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Y’all – we’ve had a lot of snowflake bundles – with stamp sets and snowflake dies – but this Snowflake Wishes with the wonderful So Many Snowflakes Dies is simply stunning!!
And the Snowflake Splendor DSP and Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper are gorgeous, right?
And – although it’s not just POPPING out at you on this card, you’re going to want the Winter Snow Embossing Folder (I promise!).
I hope you like – and are adding the truly splendiforous Snowflake Splendor suite to your must-have list!! 😉
