Hi everybody, welcome to our new feature What do I do with this? For this challenge our designers will get to try out some of these new tools and share the projects they created using them. We’ve got some fun, new things coming to the Papertrey Ink store and our designers will show you how to use them so you’ll be comfortable incorporating them into your card-making and gift-giving. Stay tuned for exciting and creative things coming your way! We want to share what our designers love with you, and this gives you a first-hand look into their crafty-faves!
Let’s get started!
Creating a Winter Scene with Glitter, White Embossing Powder, and White Paint
One of my favorite ways to create the feel of winter is to mix glitter, white embossing, and a splattering of white paint. I stamped the mountains on Classic Kraft Cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I did the same with the larger trees, stamping on Ripe Avocado Cardstock. Once all of the pieces for the scene were stamped and die cut I lightly spattered white paint on the images to give the feel of falling snow. Next I uses the Corner It: Festive Holiday Stamp Set and Dies to create the greenery, pinecones, and berries. Once the card was assembled I added Star Dust Stickles to the mountain tops, larger trees, the hill of snow, and the pinecones and greenery.
