More Sponged Snowflakes

As I mentioned yesterday when stamping with the All is Bright set and the blue inks I got a little carried away and continued creating different layouts with the same stamps, inks and technique. The card above is two layer but it could easily have been one layer if I’d masked the panel.

I certainly haven’t exhausted the layout possibilities for this this type of card but as you can see it is easy to create a range of masked and sponged cards just by moving the panel around the card base and switching from portrait to landscape orientation.

Anyway, enough of these snowflakes; I’m off to photograph the fall colours. Have a great Thanksgiving Monday if you are in Canada.


Stamps:  All is BrightNoelFlourish Christmas (PB)

    Lovely cards! I love your sponging technique. I do a lot of sponging also, and wonder what kind of paper you recommend? I find a glossy paper works really well for me.

  10. Your gorgeous creative style is so suited for the Christmas holiday, Heather! I haven’t searched your site, but I hope you have a way to offer your cards for sale at work or in a boutique where you live. Even though I make my own cards, I would buy yours! That’s how fab I think they are and I haven’t bought a card in at least ten years!!

    I’m going to sound like a broken record, but your snowflake cards are beautiful! I love the colors, the technique, and the clean and simple design. I’m going to have to try this myself.

    I love your cards!! Your snowflakes are beautiful I have a soft spot in my heart for snowflakes and have most of the Stamp’n Up ones. I know how you done your back ground with sponging but how do you get the Snowflakes so white? Are they embossed? do you use white ink and clear embossing powder or Versa Mark and white powder? I am doing a card right now for Christmas that is fraustrating me Come To Bethlehem. I have tried the black several kins but with the clear embossing powder it does not come out as black as I want. With the black embossing powder I get little spects of the power on the card even after using the embossing buddy. Can you explain about the white snowflakes and this black stamp I am trying to do. Thank you so much.
