Winter Wonderland

Hello everyone! Happy Thursday! Mayline here today. Have you enjoyed the Stamp of approval holiday blog hop?  If you missed it, check out what Effie created using the Holiday Flourishes set she designed for the new Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic box.  It’s awesome work! Today, I am sharing two shaker cards using the Crystal Flurries stamp set and the Coordinating Dies. OK! Let’s take a look at my first card!!

For the first card, I wanted to make a warm and cozy holiday feeling card. So towards the top of this card I made a peach and coral colored background using a blending technique  with some Fresh Peach dye ink from Hero Arts. Even though I used blue colors on the snowflakes they do not disturb the feeling of warmth don’t you think?

Look at the snowflakes!! I used our Crystal Flurries stamp set and the Coordinating Dies. The inks that I used are Soft sky and Soft pool from Hero Arts (all dye inks). You can create beautiful layered snowflakes and single snowflake images with this set. So it is a perfect and versatile set to create any winter themed projects.

For the shaker portion of this card, I used our Frosted Birch Couture Mix  and added some sequins (Key Lime SequinsGlass Slippers Sequins, and Medallion Gold Sequins) and confetti (Mini Stars – Holo Clear and Gold)

Here is my second card for today. I used a similar blending technique for this card towards the top using a light blue ink.  Then I made a wreath using our Crystal Flurries & Coordinating Dies, and some sequins ( Turquoise,  Caicos and Glass Slippers ).  For the shaker, I used another Couture Mix (Laura’s Dreamy Blues Couture Mix) and some sequins ( Midnight BlueTurquoise, Caicos and Glass Slippers ).

Here is a close up of the snowflake images.
