Introducing Snow Kissed: Penguins Meet Winter Sports!

Guess what?!  We are on our final sneak peek before our big grand opening tomorrow!  Today's set called Snow Kissed coordinates perfectly with the Bundled Up stamp set shared yesterday.

For my first card I used a super cool Bokeh technique inspired by the amazing Sandy Allnock featured HERE on her blog.  She used an airbrush and magnets for her technique, but since I didn't have those handy I chose to create a similar look using vinyl circles I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo and sponging on different layers of Peacock FeathersMermaid LagoonSalty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire distress inks. It was seriously so much fun and I love the results!


I finished off my card by creating a little sledding scene using the penguin stamp and some of the snowflakes and phrase dies found in the coordinating Snow Kissed Sunny Snippets die set.  I love how the white pops against the background!


For my next card I chose to go soft and sweet using Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar distress inks.  I used a heat gun to make sure the pink background was good and dry before stamping it with VersaMark ink and heat embossing the snow pattern in the background with white embossing powder.


To carry out the soft feel of my card I tied a bow around the bottom using swiss dot organza ribbon.  I used more of the coordinating dies to cut some snowflakes, coating them with a bit of Stardust Stickles glitter glue.  I love the shimmer and sparkle it gave my card!


Here's a closer look at the full Snow Kissed stamp set used for both of today's cards (available for purchase tomorrow morning):


Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you will check back tomorrow for all of the grand opening festivities--I'm seriously feeling like a kid the day before Christmas!  :)
