One of my favorite stamp sets is the Day of Gratitude Set. I love the images and the saying “Gratitude can transform common days in Thanksgivings”. As I was preparing for one of my stamp clubs this month I came across a fun technique that my friend Lynn shared on her blog.
I’m really not even sure what you call this technique. Basically you stamp an image with Versamark on a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and heat emboss it. Since I am in Christmas card mode I immediately began thinking of a snowflake stamp that I had…and this stamp image came to mind. I know it’s not what you might traditionally think to use as a snowflake image. Stamped on DSP and embossed in white embossing powder I think it makes a pretty good snowflake! I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and added a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock that was dry embossed with the Snowflake Embossing Folder in my Big Shot and heat embossed the Season’s Greetings saying in white as well. I did need to add a few embellishments so I added the button and bow made with the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. The base of the card is Garden Green, which is a color I often under-utilize! It seemed like a hit with the ladies at club and I know I am going to make a few more to send out as well.
If you are looking for a quick technique with a lot of “WOW” go try this out!
Thanks for visiting.
