Colorado Craft Company's Big and Bold Snowflake

 Colorado Craft Company's Big and Bold Snowflake

So I have become super obsessed with the Glitter Grunge Greetings Youtube Channel--Ryan has a so many great ideas. One of them was a beautiful set of cards with a bold background and a focal image of a snowflake in some really bold and beautiful colors with lots of sparkle. You can check out the video here. I decided to make my own version.  I used what I had, and was so pleased to use Colorado Craft Company's Big and Bold Winter Wishes Snowflake stamp for the first time! The three cards that I made came out wonderfully and I can't wait to make something else with this stamp in the future. Each card was created in a similar manner-- I used some Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Powder that added directly to some watercolor paper. After these backgrounds were dry, I stamped the Snowflake stamp and embossed it, attached it to a card base and then added a sentiment and some gems from Honey Bee Stamps.  

This first card was created using Blue Blitz, Golden Sparkler, and Green Parade.

I inked the snowflake stamp in ColorBox Ink in Fresh Green and then heat embossed the image using Ranger's Holographic Embossing Powder. The sentiment came from Simon Says Stamps Just Because Word Mix 2 stamp and die set that I stamped using Tsukineko Delicata Celestial Copper Ink that was also heat embossed using the Holographic Embossing Powder. I added some dimension to the sentiment by adding two layers of card stock behind it before attaching it. I placed all of it on a blue card base and attached some gems from Honey Bee Stamps.

The second card was made with the same technique and colors. The only difference was the sentiment- the Warm Hugs sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp using Brutus Monroe's Wizard Glamour Gloss Cardstock.

The final card was made with some different colors of Tonic Shimmer Powder: Cherry Bomb, Solar Flare and Catherine Wheel.

I used some Tsukineko Delicata Ruby Red Ink for the snowflake stamp and heat embossed it using the same holographic embossing powder as before. This time I used Simon Says Stamp Sending Smiles die using the same Brutus Monroe Wizard cardstock as before. I attached the card to a yellow card base and attached some sequins from Catherine Pooler's Vegas, Baby! mix.

I really loved these cards--what a great way to use such a lovely stamp in a unique way and the colors are so bold and bright. 

Thanks for reading!
