Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink September release countdown! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments that were left yesterday - I am so excited to share more today.
All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available for purchase on September 15th at Papertrey Ink.
So let's break out the glitter and sparkle up some snowflakes today. And don't just do one at a time - for the holiday season you need to mass produce. Make a big bunch of snowflakes and then they are ready for whatever projects (cards, tags, gift, etc.) you need to add them to.
To make my glittery snowflakes, I did not use a heat & stick powder or a glue pad. I used a technique that I shared a couple of years ago here. First, emboss the images with clear embossing powder. While they are still warm, drop them into the glitter or pour glitter over the top. The glitter will stick to the warm embossed areas. Then heat the image once more to set the glitter into the embossed areas. You may want to use tweezers to hold the snowflakes will you heat emboss them to protect your fingers from getting too warm.
Here are a few projects that I used my sparkly snowflakes on:
I paired a few snowflakes with the frame image from Fillable Frames #8 and one of the sentiments from the Peace, Be Still set. The background that I stamped in Fresh Snow on the kraft cardstock was so fun to make. and I love the flurry-like look that it has.
Next I put together a scrapbook page:
I used the same color palette as the card and the same stamped flurry background on the kraft cardstock.
I stamped the lines from the Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger set in Chai tea dye ink onto the die cut shape and then the frame image in Smokey Shadow over the top to create my journaling block for the page.
I have one final project to share that uses another image and sentiment that is included in the Peace, Be Still set:
And now I am sure you can see how this set got its name :) I stamped the dove image onto the coordinating die cut shape in Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder. Before I attached the dove to the card front with a dimensional, I stamped the little leaf branch in Ripe Avocado. The I made sure that the beak of the bird overlapped the branch so it is carrying it.
The dove image will be something that you can use for the holidays, but also will work for religious events like confirmation and the "peace, be still" sentiment would be a lovely sentiment for a sympathy card.
Nichole is sharing more about my 2 sets: Peace, Be Still and Fillable Frames #8 on her blog today. Alli,Beth, Becky, and Lisa will all have projects to share on their blogs with their new sets and Dawn will have lots of inspiration using the Color Couture collections being released this month.
