I’m continuing sharing Snow Place projects I’ve made using Stampin’ Up’s Snow Place stamp set. Today’s card features the cute penguin image, and I chose to use him with no embellishments. There’s lots of little details on this card, which I share in the project notes below the photo.
The Snow Place stamp set (Photopolymer 139738) and Snow Friends Framelits Dies (139664) were used to make the main focal point of today’s card. These two items are sold together in a Bundle (140844) at a 15% discount.
I combined two stamp sets to create the sentiment on this card. “It’s Your Day!” can be found in the Fabulous Four stamp set (Wood 134171, Clear 134174). “Celebrate!” is from the Celebrate Today stamp set (Photopolymer 137138).
I created a blue background using the Watercolor Wash background stamp (Wood 138704, Clear 139538). I used Soft Sky ink (131181) and STAMPED OFF for the background. Then I used the snowflake image from the Snow Place stamp set to create the falling snow (Soft Sky stamped full strength).
The penguin is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink (132708) and his beak and feet are colored with a Pumpkin Pie Marker (Brights Collection Stampin’ Write Markers 131259).
Sentiments were stamped in VersaMark ink (102283), sprinkled with Silver Emboss Powder (109131) and set using the Heat Tool (129053). Make sure to first use the Embossing Buddy (103083) to reduce the static so your embossing powder doesn’t end up all over your card stock.
To create the snowbanks I tore two pieces of Whisper White card stock. After attaching them to the card front, I covered the torn edges covered Clear Dazzling Details (124117) to make it look like sparkling snow.
I used a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Silver Foil Sheets (132178) for the matte on this card. Because that paper costs a bit more, I didn’t want to waste the part that will be hidden behind the stamped card front. So, before mounting the card front, I cut out the hidden part of the card stock using a framelit. I’ll save the piece that I cut out for a future paper crafting project.
Here’s a couple photos to show what I did.
As you can see in the photo above, the hole created by the framelit will be covered up with the card front. What a great way not to waste paper and card stock, especially the more expensive sheets.
Well, I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I’m so appreciative of all who stop by to visit and see what I’ve been up to. Make sure to stop by again, and leave a comment if you’d like!!
Have fun “stampin’ it up!”
