Snow Flurries

Double click any photo to zoom in for details

Hi there, I'm back again with my weekly posting for the Artistic Outpost deisgn team.  I have made another Christmas card with the wonderful Christmas Chalk stamp set.  I love the stylized deer and Christmas tree stamps from this set.  I started by making a panel stamped randomly with the pine bough stamp, stamped with Pine Needles distress ink and then spritzed with Brushed Pewter distress spray.  Using a snowflake texture fade, I embossed white CS and then sponged the high points and the edges with more Pine Needles DI.  Since I was on a roll with the Pine Needles, I also used it to do some of the stamping and sponged the pine needles die cuts with it too.
I made several die cuts using the Stacked Snowflakes die, one of which was embossed with the texture fade that came with my Layered Snowflake die.  That snowflake got the Pine Needles sponging treatment too. The next snowflake in the stack was cut from white CS that had been covered with Frosted Film and then given a coat of Brushed Pewter distress stain.  The small snowflake on the top of the stack was white CS painted with Brushed Pewter distress stain and then glittered with Pumice Stone distress glitter.  I topped it off with a small gumdrop sold in my store.  I cut the evergreen with the Holiday Greens thinlits, sponged the with Pine Needles and misted them with Brushed Pewter spray distress stain.  I love the way they look with the metallic distress stain.
My triple loop bow is seam binding dyed with Brushed Pewter distress stain and embellished with a small silver tone snowflake and tiny jingle bell, also available in my store.  The small safety pin also comes with the set which makes it so easy to add it to a bow.

And don't forget, everything at The Funkie Junkie Boutique is an extra 15% off our already discounted prices now through midnight Eastern Time on Monday, December 1st.  I still do have some of the snowflake dies in stock as well as the silver charms and all the regular items like stamp pats, stains, sprays, stamp sets and many other items.

Thanks all for this week.  I hope you all had a great weekend!

It's one thing to see your photos from a distance, but to really get a close up shot of all the detailed embossing and texturizing you do just impresses the daylights outta me. I really love that silver and green and the more I see those little charms, the more I think I must have them!
Beautiful card Linda.
