Snow Tweet

 Hello everyone and thank you for joining me on the blog today! I have a winter themed inspirational card for you using a more summery set. I really wanted to show you how you can alter your stamps to get different looks. So I hope this helps you stretch you stamps a little further! Let's get started!

*Note: I thought I would also change to an easier blog format of doing numbered steps for your convenience. I hope this enables you to follow the directions a bit easier. Please let me know what you think in the comments!

1. Emboss an A2 panel of white cardstock with a snowflake (or your favorite) embossing folder and trim to 5 by 3 3/4 inches. 

2. Stamp houses, birds and tree branch from the "Tweet Birdie" set with Copic safe ink onto white cardstock. 

3. Color all images using Copic or alcohol markers. I changed the birds into Cardinals by adding a bit of black to the eyes. I also changed the branch to a "pine" branch by coloring over the leaves to make needles. 

4. Cut all the images using dies or fussy cut. Add white gel pen over the "pine needles". This will hide the regular leaves and add a snowy look. 

5. Using and embossing pen, add white embossing powder (I used a puffy powder) to the houses and tree branch in random areas and heat set. 

6. Arrange elements onto your embossed panel and adhere using liquid adhesive and foam tape. 

7. Stamp and silver heat emboss the sentiment onto cardstock. Adhere using liquid adhesive. 

8. Add the finished panel to a top folding A2 card base. 

9. For the final touch, add "Dreamy Days" sequins for added "snow". 

Below I've included a close up picture of the snowy birdhouses. 

I love the look of these adorable houses with snow. 

You could easily turn this card into a holiday card by adding a festive holiday sentiment or die cut sentiment. I really liked the simple "hi" that could be used for any wintery occasion. 

Have you already started your holiday card making? Let me know in the comments!

I hope you have a wonderful day. Until next time crafty friends!
