Snowflakes Plus

I was lucky enough to win the Uniko Stunning Snowflakes stamp set & I've made 2 cards with it.  First is a thank you card using emboss resist with DO faded jeans & wilted violet.  
I stamped the Simply Said Blocks sentiment in black ink multiple times on a strip of white cardstock using my MISTI.  I used black for the mat & added the snowflakes panel.  I'm entering SSS Wednesday (emboss resist) & Uniko Challenge 63.
I used the same Uniko stamp sets to make a birthday card for the Uniko 9th Anniversary Celebration.  This time I stamped snowflakes in DO faded jeans, wilted violet & rustic wilderness.  
The sentiment was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black & I added splatters.  CAS, 1 layer card ready to mail.
Recently I watched Gina K's video & was inspired to pull out a dark Copic & give it a try.  I gold embossed the image from Gina K A Big Hello & colored all the vanilla cardstock with R59.  
Then I gold embossed again for thick, smooth lines.  The texture was made by dabbing with Alcohol Ink Blending Solution on a piece of felt.  The edge was made with a PPP die & the sentiment from Sketched Wreath Builder was stamped in PTI Scarlet Jewel.  
I colored the little hearts with a gold glitter pen & added gold splatters.  I used several pieces of cardstock behind the focal point before adding it to the card front.  I'm entering the GK February Monthly Mix challenge.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  14. Your snowflakes are gorgeous, Greta but I'm a little tired of seeing the white ones here. I weant and watched Gina K's video and saw how you did the coloring. Wow, it came out beautifully. I love the color you used and the double gold embossing looks terrific.
