Tuesday, January 14


Today's card is different than what I usually do and has a lot of odd elements that sort of come together nicely. NO?

I used OFF THE GRID as my background for the panel element in the card and then used the colors from the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiment to stamp the Snow Flakes from the retired Warmth and Wonder Hostess set, (you can use any snowflake).  Finally I used the die Blossom Party Originals over and over to create the flowers by cutting them and gluing them sometimes one petal at a time into shapes I wanted. I layered them on MultiPurpose Adhesive Sheets before cutting them out giving them more flexibility, and the punch Bird Builder makes pretty silvery leaves. I layered everything in black to make the colors Wisteria Wonder, Cool Cabana, and Strawberry Slush POP! Finally I added some NEW FANCY FOIL DESIGNER VELLUM to the inside edge and rounded the corners with my Envelope Punch Board. Are you familiar with the phrase evoo from Rachel Ray well I call my punch board DEPB  (Donna's Envelope Punch Board).
This is my Winter Flower Snowflake card for the challenge over at Timeless Tuesday! ~Enjoy

Wow! Love this. I absolutely love the grid background stamp and I used constantly. I haven't used this flower die in forever.... but I LOVE how you mixed the layers with color and POPPED them all with black. So cool. I'll have to dig this out soon. hugs.

Love this Donna! I don't have that Off the Grid stamp but I have been eying it. This is a lot of detail but you made it work as usual! Thanks for playing with us at HSS!
