It's been quite the busy week! Since this is PaperTrey Ink release day, I thought I'd pick just a couple of my projects to share with you here. (They can all be found in my PaperTrey Gallery here, complete with supply lists.)
First, a snowman with Made of Snow--a clean, fresh, fun, and versatile set! I also used Heather's Rustic Snowflakes set in the background of this one. I used Spellbinders dies to make the window, then stamped on the layer that I had cut out of the base for the window and mounted it on the inside. Why two layers there? I wanted to pierce the edges, but I didn't want holes in the back of my card. (Piercing template was a piece of plastic canvas. It had larger holes than my piercer, but I stayed consistent around the circle, punching in the upper right quadrant of each hole.)
Next I have a Rustic Snowflakes card to share. Heather's sets just seem to want to be used with kraft cardstock, right? I added some Pure Poppy accents to this one, as well as some red Swarovski crystals to the centers of the snowflakes. I know that red isn't a typical snowflake color, but it seemed to fit the personality of this set--a warm, "homey" personality!
Finally, I have one Mazel Tov card to share--gold embossing powder, Shimmery Gold cardstock, gold ribbon, and even a gold head pin and bead. I used a Spellbinders ribbon tag die for the Shalom sentiment. The new Mazel Tov stamp set fills a stamping niche in such an elegant way!
Tomorrow night I'll share a very simple, fun ornament made with Merry and Bright--no soldering, I promise! Have a lovely day!
