Weekly inspiration for BeeCrafty.. More snowflakes..

Morning bloggers..
Following on from last weeks post, using the brand new polymer clear stamps from BeeCrafty, I've had another play with the stamps..
The designs I made for the Hochanda shows, I really loved, so I decided to keep the same style while making cards for my own christmas stock pile..

Find the yummy scrummy stamps HERE..

Both cards have been made by first stamping the snowflake border with versamark and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.
After that I used distress ink, 3 different colours of the same family, to colour my background.
Just take a papertowel or a cloth and wipe over the card to remove any ink from the embossing.

I continued by die cutting a circle and heat emboss that, also with the silver embossing powder.
I stamped my greeting and coloured it with one of the colours I used for the background.

Before putting it all together, I decided to layer my card. Normally I mat on to black, but I decided to repeat the silver embossing. I just cut my at to size and heat emboss the edges with the same silver as on the card.

I then layered all my pieces up and cut my circle to sit off the side of the card. I rolled up some twine and stuck under my greeting (I used glue gel to hold the twine in place) and voila.. all done..

Its a very simple card, but I personlly think it looks stricking and can be done in all colour combinations.

And that is it from me for today. I hope you like my creations.
