Chilly Days!

The weather has turned chilly here in the last few days, but we can't really complain, after all, it is January! 

The Stampendous Design Team members are sharing our "Snow Wonderful" creations this week.  Last week I shared an ATC (Artist Trading Card) I had made for the ATC group I belong to that had a "Tiles" theme.  This week I'm showing you an ATC I created for our December theme of "Glitter".  It features the the beautiful Snowflake Cascade (FMS4042) stencil with a sentiment from the Holiday Expressions (SSC1231) set.

Step 1:  Cut a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" piece of royal blue cardstock, adhere a 2 1/4" x  3 1/4" piece of double sided adhesive to the blue paper
Step 2:  Place the snowflake stencil face down on a paper towel or craft mat and pat the back with VersaMark ink
Step 3: Remove the release paper from the blue paper and place the stencil ink side down on the sticky paper, use the release paper to press the stencil firmly to the sticky surface
Step 4:  Sprinkle China Blue micro glitter over the openings of the stencil and rub in with your finger or a piece of release paper, tap off all extra, brush off excess glitter with a soft brush
Step 5:  Turn the glittered piece face down on a paper towel and carefully pull the glittered image off the stencil, keeping the stencil flat on the table
Step 6:  Sprinkle the background with the Crystal micro glitter, rub gently, tap off extra
Step 7:  Stamp the sentiment, mount on a matching blue mat and add to the Snowflakes using foam tape
Step 8:  Adhere a piece of cardstock to the back with your ATC information!
