from Our Family to Yours

12/4/20 Featured Creation at Scrapping4fun Challenges!

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great weekend! Today I’m posting for the first time on the Prickley Pear Stamps blog! The blog has been dormant for several years between ownership, and the current owners are striving to bring it up-to-date. So here I am with a fun slimline card I created with the oh-so-adorable Snow Family clear stamp set!

I’ve mentioned before that my go-to size slimline isn’t the same size everybody else is making these days although I’ve seen several different sizes out there. Mine is 9″ x 3-3/4″ because I think it fits better in a #10 business size envelope. I stamped the snow family in black ink on a white panel, colored the images with alcohol markers and then stamped the sentiment in red ink. I created an overall snowy appearance by covering the entire panel with Versamark Dazzle and applying embossing tinsel. I covered the panel a second time with the Versamark Dazzle and applied clear embossing powder so that the embossing tinsel wouldn’t rub off. I added a narrow strip of red patterned paper across the top, adhered the panel on a piece of gray cardstock and added two snowflake brads. I adhered the panel on a slightly larger piece of red cardstock and then to the card base.

Love the fun snowy appearance that the embossing tinsel gives this scene!

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of patterned paper and a narrow strip of gray cardstock, and stamped the sentiment in red ink. I adhered the panel to a piece of gray cardstock and then to a slightly larger piece of red cardstock. 

And one more peek… I absolutely LOVE this little snow family! What a fun stamp set!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
