CCC – December Blog Hop

Hello! It’s time for our last Collected Crafty Collabs hop. Theme for the month is Snowman/Snowpeople and the bonus theme is Sparkle.

You should have came from the fabulous Anna’s blog and I’ll tell you a little bit later about your next stop.

It has been so much fun finding all those ‘forgotten’ supplies and making something with them 🙂 I decided to use a stamp set that I haven’t used for a whole year! Avery Elle’s Snow Fun. I love this snowman so much that I had to use him. Just look at his face 🙂 I stamped him on watercolor paper and first I created the background. Kinda just playing with the watercolors and watching the water doing the magic. Once I was happy with the wintery scene, I colored the snowman. And once all was dry, I added white texture paste through falling snow stencil.

For the bonus sparkle theme I applied Nuvo Glacier paste in Frostbite around the edges of a white cardstock piece (same size as my card base). Once that was dry, I adhered the watercolored panel and then all onto my cardbase. I also added 3 glitter snowflakes and clear Wink of Stella to the white part of the snowman’s hat. Lastly, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the nose and the gift’s bow.

I managed to film my process:

So this is all from me. I hope your holidays are merry and bright and the next year better, healthier and happier!

And now please head over to see what lovely Val has created 🙂 After her is the sweet Marie!

Christmas Craft Creations – Winter Blues

Hello and welcome to the Christmas Craft Creations challenge for the month of December. The theme is Winter Blues and all the details and rules can be found here.

I had recently bought a new watercolor set so I decided to use it for my cards. I took two blues: Indigo and Ultramarine. But first I stamped and heat embossed in gold snowflakes from Stamperia’s Snowflakes stamp set on watercolor paper. I didn’t do a great job stamping so some of the snowflakes came out partially but that was totally fine. Next step: just playing with the colors and lots of water.

For card number one I added vellum on top with heat embossed sentiment “Peaceful Christmas Time” in Finnish, adhered die cut snowflakes (leftovers from another project) and added sequins for a bit more sparkle.

Card number two: matted the watercolor panel on textured blue cardstock, added vellum strip with the sentiment “Let it snow” and added also sequins.

I hope you will join us in this month’s challenge 🙂

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a better and healthier 2021!

Hugs,

Boryana
