Skate in the Flakes
It's Monday! What better way is there to make a Monday more bearable, than with a Stamp of the Week from Repeat Impressions? This week’s SOTW is called "Snowflakes" (8805-K). The SOTW is available exclusively to Repeat Impressions blog readers at 50% OFF with the special discount code from Monday, December 3 to Sunday, December 9. To get the discount code and more information about the SOTW, please go to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.
For my card, I repeatedly and randomly stamped "Snowflakes" with Colorbox Frost White Pigment Ink onto a strip of white cardstock from Georgia Pacific. I added clear embossing powder and applied heat with my heat gun. Then, I took my pad of Distress Ink Tumbled Glass dye ink and streaked it many times onto the strip of paper to allow the white snowflakes to appear. I did add a light streak of Whispers Whisper Lilac also to this strip. I sprayed this strip with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spray from Tsukineko for a little sparkle. I framed this strip with black cardstock on two sides. This snowflake strip was then placed onto a white panel, that was cut with a corner rounder on two sides.
On X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye, I stamped the Repeat Impressions image of "Snow Skating" (4704-L). I colored the adorable snowman with Copic markers and cut around the image. I then stamped the swirly portion of the ice on the ground onto the white panel using a Memento Tuxedo Black marker, spilling onto the snowflake strip. A little Crystal Stickles was applied. I pop-dotted the snow skater onto the card.
Finishing touches to the card include sheer white ribbon and a snowflake brad attached to the bow.
Want some more snow? Take a look at what the other Rock Stars created. We promise you won't have to shovel, LOL.
