#Simplestamping Saturday Snow Front Scene. Welcome back to #Simplestamping Saturday, did you miss this last week? I hope you enjoyed the Most Wonderful Time parcel I made and that it made up for no #Simplestamping project. Today’s project was inspired by Tina Zinck in Canada. It is a shameless CASE! but I just loved her project and wanted to use her technique for my Avid version. I have changed her technique a little.
My #Simplestamping project uses just three ink colours with the Snow Front stamp set and a Whisper White Note Card and Envelope. I used Smoky Slate, Soft Suede and Garden Green to build my Snow Front scene. The only ‘technique’ I used on this was to use some second generation stamping. This just means that the stamp is inked up, you stamp once (quickly) on some scrap paper and then on your project. Doing this means that you get a slightly softer shade of your colour. If your the first image you need to stamp is fully on your project you can simply use the ink that is left for your second generation image. I have included information on that in my video today. Don’t forget to add stamping to your envelope too!
The next version of my card uses some coloured card stock and adds both some ribbon and some Ice Glitter. The basic scene is the same, but by ‘scribbling’ some Fine Tip Glue on a few places of your scene, you can add some Ice Glitter which is just so pretty and adds to the feeling of snow. Adding the ribbon at the bottom of the scene is optional, but I think it adds a certain ‘something’.
My final version has exactly the same scene again, but rather than adding Ice Glitter with Fine Tip Glue, I have heat embossed over most of the scene with Clear Embossing Powder, adding some Dazzling Diamonds before heating the powder.This is the technique that Tina shared, but I added the Dazzling Diamonds for that extra feeling of snow. Once I heated the first layer of embossing powder, I decided to add a second layer, particularly over the glitter. This made everything a bit smoother. Stamping over the project using the Crackle Paint stamp in Soft Suede adds a vintage feel. Once you have added this extra layer of stamping you will need to buff it off with some kitchen paper, then some damp kitchen paper. I love the finished look. Come back on Tuesday to see step by step instructions.
