I used the same two snowflake stencils that Gina used (Snowflake Mandala Stencil and Stellar Snowflake Stencil) and then rather stenciling on white cardstock, I used Smokey Slate (SU!) cardstock and came up with these 2 cards...
I started in the upper left corners and then blended from light to dark, staying darker in the corner.
I used my blender brush and the Snowflake Mandala Stencil for this card, and then started with Sea Glass ink, then Turquoise Sea ink, and finally Tranquil Teal ink. Before lifting the stencil off I used a sponge dauber and white pigment ink and just blended around the outside edge of the stencil. Gina did not do this on hers, but I really like the soft effect it gives on a colored cardstock. My sentiment is from SSS/Gina K Festive Flower stamp set. I added a few gemstones to finish off my card.
I used the Stellar Snowflake Stencil for this card with Bubblegum Pink and Passionate Pink inks and the sentiment is from Gina's Sparkling Snowflake stamp set.
Very simple and easy cards that really pack a WOW, and now I have two more cards for my Christmas stash! There really won't be any excuses this year for not having your Christmas cards done, so check out Gina's videos and have some fun! Thanks Gina!! :0)
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
