Using up Scraps with Freezin’ Fun
When I create cards with Designer Series Paper, I always save my scraps. And sometimes, the scraps are long and skinny pieces. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with those small pieces, but I always save them. Today’s card shows a great way to use up those scraps and still have the card feel like it has a bigger piece of Designer Series Paper on it.
I used the Freezin’ Fun Bundle for my main image. This stamp set is so adorable with the little woodland creatures having fun in the snow. And BONUS, as it is a bundle so you can easily cut out the images. Plus, there are extras in the die set too like a snowdrift and a little heart.
The Designer Paper that I used is the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP). This DSP is easily one of my favourites in the Stampin’ Up! August to January Mini Catalogue. I love all the blues and purples in this package. And I picked my colour scheme for the card based on the paper.
The colours on this card are:
- Highland Heather (base & colouring)
- Misty Moonlight (mat & ribbon)
- Pool Party (embossed layer & colouring)
- Whisper White
- Smoky Slate (colouring)
The Snowflake Splendour Designer Series Paper is also on sale this month. See details of the DSP sale here.
I did a simple masking technique on this card. Here’s how.
- Stamp the Seal image first with Memento Black Ink on to the die-cut circle.
- Stamp the Seal image again on a sticky note. Die-cut or cut out with scissors, the image.
- Lay the post sticky note over the white circle directly on top of the stamped image.
- Stamp the iceberg over top of the seal image, positioning it near the bottom.
- Remove the sticky note and your seal looks like it is sitting on the iceberg. Colour in the image with Blends markers (see more about Blends here).
For the background piece on this card, I embossed it with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. And then I added in some Snowflake Sequins to carry thru the snow image.
