This release includes 6 New Clear Stamp Sets and 4 Sets of Coordinating Dies, 4 New Stand Alone Creative Dies, 3 New Stencils and 2 New Glitter Jars! You can see this fantastic release here.

I made a winter scene card today featuring adorable snowmen from Happy Snowmen Stamp Set. I went a little crazy with masking technique here. lol I had to mask the hats and all the snowmen as well, since I wanted to add golden accents in the background. All the images had to be masked in order for me to heat emboss those golden Christmas trees behind the snowmen. I used WOW! Metallic Gold embossing powder for that. 

After I stamped the scene and embossed the trees, I die cut out a panel using a die from Dotted Patterns Set 3. While I had all the masks on, I ink blended few shades of blue ink going light to dark to make a night sky. I also added some stars with golden glitter paste using Snow-fetti stencil and made a starry night by adding lots of dots with golden gel pen. I know the stencil is called Snow-fetti, but to me those snowflakes totally look like stars if you make them with golden glitter paste. 

I coloured all the snowmen with Altenew Artist Markers and added some sparkle using clear Wink of Stella. It's hard to show all that shine on pictures, but hopefully you can see some of it on the picture below.

To complete my scene I die cut out another panel out of white and glitter gold cardstock using the same frame die and cut out two pieces from those panels using border die from Trimmings Borders. I ink blended the edges of the white strip, so it wouldn't be just plain white. Next, I glued the white and golden pieces together to add a golden edge to my bottom piece. I really like how that golden stripe ties everything together.

I stamped the sentiment and foam mounted it onto the panel with my winter scene. For even more fun, I added pompoms on the hats of two snowmen. Adhered the panel onto a plain white card base and my card is done!
