Snowflake Kisses

“Snowflake Kisses” is the inspired theme at Wednesday Stamper this week.  Wil made a beautiful arch as an inspiration piece. wssnowflakekisses1

I used a free image from Shabby Cottage Studio for my snowflake greeting card and used the peeling paint technique to help frame the lady looking out of the window.  I bought some chunky glitter glue that has little snowflakes in it which gives a bit of sparkle in person.  I sanded the outer edges of the card and stamped it with a PSX snowflake stamp.  The two bigger snowflakes are sparkly foam stickons.

Also the This Thursday, It’s All About theme is “playing with paint”, which is exactly what I did here with the peeling paint technique I used.  For anyone that doesn’t know what that is, you spread a thin layer of petroleum jelly on your image, randomly, not necessarily covering the whole image.  It works as a resist.  Then you paint over it with a coat of paint.  After it dries, you wipe gently and the paint slides off the jellied portions of the image, paint sticks on the other spots.

“Begin doing what you want to do now.  We are not living in eternity.  We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand — and melting like a snowflake.” ~Marie Beyon Ray

  13. Oh wow…the look on the woman’s face is so contemplative and you can almost feel the chill in the air surrounding that window. Frosty and delightful in every way my talented friend.

  15. Hi Patty…just visiting from Tammy’s post! Your greeting card is just beautiful! Love her looking out the window at the sparkling winter wonderland. I also love your inchie ornaments! They look like fun to make and something relatively fast, which would be right up my alley! 😉

    Funny I should find you…as I am doing an art quilt for Monica with the leftover squares from the Pink Artist project and I have one of your squares…the lace one that says LOVE in the center! It is beautiful and so delicate! It is in the center of one side of the quilt! I just hope I have honored each artist’s work. I have one side complete and am working on the other side right now. It is due to Ms. M by Dec. 1st, so I’m under the gun. I will be posting it soon.

    Thanks for sharing the tutorial on your blog. I would love to find some time to make some.
