Wishing you…

..peace, love, and joy!

Made a bunch of these shimmery, embossed snowflakes already — can’t wait to make some more. It was really super easy, to thanks to THIS paper from Hero Arts! It’s a light pool paper and already has the handwriting design on it. But, you could always take an extra step and stamp light pool paper with a handwriting stamp in tide pool mid-tone ink instead, or you can even try a darker ink like ocean. I listed some options for handwriting stamps in the supplies, and the pool paper too. So, here’s all you do:

  • First, cut the paper in half (at the 4.25″ mark) and score in half to create a base card (at the 5.5″ mark).
  • Next, stamp the snowflake in white pigment ink and heat emboss in white.
  • Use an ink blending tool to rub tumbled glass distress ink all around the snowflake — it will act as a resist. Add a spare amount of broken china to the center of the snowflake for extra dimension. Then add more tumbled glass along the edges.
  • Wipe off the snowflake with a dry paper towel to remove any extra ink.
  • Flick water on the card to make splotches and let dry. Then mist the whole card with perfect pearls in water.
  • Stamp “peace love joy” on a white strip with gray ink, then trim the ends and fold. Adhere to card with foam tape.
  • Add gems — I love THIS pack since there are a TON of gems in it and in varying sizes.
That’s it! It’s easy to change up the design by using different colors or a different message, too!
Peace, love and joy to you!

    Hi Lisa.

    I have to say, I really like your work.

    Is it your passion making these designs?

    I know, crafts are awesome.

    My favorite is making paper airplanes.

    I make paper airplanes of all shapes and sizes…This site is pretty good for that: http://makepaperairplanes.org

    Maybe I should start a blog?

    Thanks Lisa, you inspire me.

    Keep up your good work.

    Best,
    Rob
