ThermOWeb | Gina K Designs Holiday Snowflakes

Hello to everyone! We finally had our first snow fall where I live, so it's fitting that today I pulled out the Gina K Designs StampnFoil Baby It's Cold Outside set! I used some Fancy Foil and mixed together some Glitz Glitter Gel for this fun and festive card!  

Let's start with that glitzy glittery background! I wanted to have the look of a flurry in the background and the Rina K Designs Sending Sunshine Stencil was just perfect! I sprayed the back with Pixie Spray and added it diagonally onto my card base using some 1.5" Purple Tape to mask off the rest of the stencil. 

I took a bit of Red Velvet Glitz Glitter Gel and a bit of Grass Green Glitz Glitter Gel and mixed them together on my palette for a festive custom color of Glitz Glitter Gel! I love how it turned out! The green and red mix together perfectly! I can't wait to do this with other colors, too! I used a Stencil Pal to spread the Glitz Glitter Gel mixture over the stencil and set the panel aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card. 

I love how the snowflakes from the Baby It's Cold Outside StampnFoil layer together! The coordinating Baby It's Cold Outside Foil-Mates Detail Sheets are just amazing and simple to use. There are detailed instructions on the back of the packaging and I was able to easily follow them. I like to get my laminator good and hot, so I turned on my machine while I was working so it would be ready when I was finished. 

I chose which snowflakes I wanted to stamp from the Baby It's Cold Outside Stamp Set and lined them up on the Foil-Mates Detail Sheet and stamped in both red and green ink to match my background. I chose the coordinating die from the Baby It's Cold Outside Die Set and die cut the snowflakes using a bit of Purple Tape to make sure my dies didn't move during cutting. Now it's time to add the pretty foil! I chose Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil and added the foil on top of my stamped and die cut images. You want to be sure that the toner on the Foil-Mates Detail Sheet touches the back (silver) side of the foil. Then I ran it through my laminator and I had pretty stamped and foiled snowflakes! 

I stamped a sentiment from the Baby It's Cold Outside Stamp Set with the same green ink that I used for the snowflakes and bubble cut around the sentiment. I added the majority of the snowflakes to the card with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive, but I popped a few of them as well as the sentiment up with iCraft 3D Foam Squares.

I hope you picked up some fun techniques today! See you soon!
