Too Soon for Snow

Good Morning!

Here is a card I made for the October Challenge over at Stampendous. This month's challenge is to create a CAS holiday card. Here is your chance to get some Christmas cards done, just make sure to link to the challenge before Thursday, November 3 at 11:59 PM EST.

I used the Stampendous stamp Cling Forest Cottage Scene CRR123 for my card this week, colored it with Copic markers and then covered the whole image with Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder. I continued to add layers of embossing powder by simply swiping the Versamark ink pad over my image and sprinkling on more powder, melting the powder with the heat tool and repeating. When my last layer was melted but still hot, I sprinkled some of the new Stampendous Shaved Ice over the image. This gave the appearance of snow falling. I just love this Shaved Ice. It's light and fluffy but when applied it glistens. It's perfect for adding shimmer and shine to your holiday cards.

It's a beautiful day in Ohio. I hope I didn't jinx it with a snow card. It definitely is too soon for snow! Please follow the links below and check out what the amazing ladies at Stampendous created this week. Hope to see your CAS holiday card soon.

Thanks for visiting!

  3. Beautiful scene and I love how the shaved ice adds just the right touch!

  4. Great painting-with-powder card. Love the ice and look. Not sure that I'd qualify it as CAS, but that's kind of subjective depending on what it is "normal" for YOU! LOL. Beautfiful card, either way!
