Today Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and Eileen Hull are collaborating to bring you the Winter Wishes Blog Hop featuring lots of holiday inspiration!
Warm thoughts are unfolding,
as we begin to enter a festive time of year. Eileen, Kim and The Teams have created a fun blog hop challenge to kick of the American Thanksgiving and Winter festivities.
To play along all you need to do is follow along and comment on every blog. If you play along and link up your own creation using Eileen and Emerald Creek products, you will get 2 bonus entries for the draw. Contest Closes on Sunday November 25th, with the Winner announced Cyber Monday!
Using Eileen's range of Clearsnap inks, I stamped the Holly all around the edge of a 5 3/4" square piece of card, in Hydrangea.
Then I inked around the edge to create a frame using Uniform.
I stamped out the gorgeous Polar Bear onto a piece of white card that was 5"x2 1/2" using Onyx Black Versafine, and then tore strips of card to create the snowy scene, and bring the picture to a 5" square. Using a paper distresser, I distressed all the edges, with the exception of the snow layers that would be hidden.
I inked around the edges of the snow with the same two shades of ink, and adhered all the pieces to the Holly background.
I added a little of both shades of ink to my craft mat, added a little water, and painted in the sky. I took a piece of kitchen roll and dabbed the wet ink to remove some, and create snow filled clouds.
I added glistening snow with extra fine iridescent glitter and my Quickie Glue Pen. I also dotted snow around the sky and snowflakes as well.
Then with my Black Micron PN pen I added a few extra snow flakes, dots and a squiggly border around both layers.
I stamped out the Warmest Wishes sentiment onto a scrap piece of card, cut it out, and inked around the edges with Hydrangea ink.
To finish off I added the layers onto a 6" square white card blank.
This was such a fun project to do, and a great way of using up a few of those scrap pieces of card.
