So Suzy Themes and Techniques January Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year to all of you!

We have a new feature at So Suzy Stamps called

Themes and Techniques
and for January its going to be seasonally appropriate:

  • Theme: Baby It’s Cold Outside
  • Techniques: Vellum (use vellum in your project)

My stamp supplies:


I decided to combine the theme with the technique.

I started out with heat embossing the Blowing Snowflake Tree stamp with ultrafine white embossing powder.


Added the sentiment, using my Misti - 
I want a good black impression of that, which means repeat stamping.


Sponged distress ink around the tree and added punched out vellum snowflakes - the vellum I had colored with alcohol inks, but it did not work... got really crumply and I did not like it


Still wanted something else, so I die cut a Memory Box border die with vellum and added it to the top of my card


To give it some sparkle I added Stickles. 


 It turned out a little busier than I normally like my cards...

Go and check out all those fabulous inspiration cards our talented DT made!

Linking up with:

Wunderschön, wie der Spruch die Karte wiedergibt - oder umgekehrt!
Was mir auch sehr gut gefällt ist die aus Pergament gestanzte Bordüre, sie wirkt hier so federleicht!
Happy New Year!!
