Layered Stamping: Snowflakes! [How I Used Simon’s January 2020 Card Kit]
Of all the stamping techniques out there, I have to think that layered stamping might possibly be my most favorite. There’s something so satisfying about building an image from 2, 3 or more layers to create one-of-a-kind stamped images in any color scheme your heart desires!
Simon Says Stamp’s January 2020 Card Kit, Snowflake Builder has a GORGEOUS stamp set in it that can create lovely, intricate snowflakes in just a few quick stamps.
Because Winter makes me think of crisp blues, moody teals and shimmery accents, I used that color palette as the starting point for my design. The snowflakes are layered with Soft Navy, Winter Sky and Sea Glass inks. With a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, I softened the edges by blending some ink – that frosty effect is just the look I was going for!
Over the blending and stamping, a bit of sparkly splattering was added. I recently came across this gorgeous Glamour Gel that can be diluted with a bit of water for the most intense shimmer splatters (or painting accents) I’ve achieved yet! Definitely check this stuff out if you’ve never seen it.
I of course couldn’t stop there with the shimmer… White Blizzard Nuvo Drops in between the splatters really sets things off! I also added a small greeting along the left side of my card using one of the sentiments in the Snowflake Builder stamp set. And so that I can send this card right away, I paired my finished card with one of the Metallic Silver envelopes in the January 2020 Card Kit!
I have a feeling you’ll have so much fun (or should I say “snow much fun!”?) creating with this new card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I hope today’s project has given you a spark of creativity for using this lovely kit!
