ICE & SNOW and PUSSY WILLOWS

Hello!  I have two posts today! When you are done looking here, please take a moment to scroll down HERE.


Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's December Blog Hop!
This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Pucker Up Featured December 13
Pussy Willows Featured December 14
Ice and Snow Featured December 14
New Pines Featured December 15



On my first card, I stamped the tree line from the Ice and Snow set on the Mottled Berry Cardstock . Then I sponged the edges with Bashful Blue ink. Along the bottom portion of my card, I masked the trees and sponged the snow with White Craft Ink, then sprinkled Hologram Highlights Embossing Powder and heat embossed the snow to give it that fabulous SPARKLE!


I embossed the snowflakes from the Ice & Snow Set with the White Embossing on the Patterned Paper from the Summer Garden Premium Paper Pack. I Added the Beautiful, Satin Light Blue Ribbon. I used the Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch and ran it through my Xyron. Unpeeled it and added some Sparkly Glitter! The thinking of you comes from the Pussy Willows Set on the Spellbinders. 




On my second card, I stamped the snowflakes on the Glossy White Cardstock in Bashful Blue ink. I then ran it through the Big Shot with the Snowflakes embossing folder. I stamped the tree line from the Ice & Snow stamp set on the Glossy White Cardstock and sponged around the sky line. I added some Stardust Stickles to the trees and ground. It did not turn out like I was hoping! I used the Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch and added the Basic Grey Half Pearls. I then added this gorgeous Satin Turquoise Ribbon to finish it off!
On my final card, I heat embossed the bird and font stamps from the Pussy Willows Stamp Set with gold embossing powder on the Corn Husk Card stock. I stamped the pussy willows along the bottom portion and heat embossed with the gold embossing powder on the Brushed Gold Card stock. I used the Momma's Favorite Purple Linen Finish Card stock and the Premium Vanilla Cardstock as additional layers. I used some gold ribbon I had in my stash and added a purple button too.
