Gathering All Snowflakes

At Stampendous we believe it’s not a finished project unless it sparkles and this week’s Build a Snowman theme is the perfect companion for our snowy Essentials products. Be on the lookout for projects made with these products while you are hopping around our design teams blogs.  If you missed seeing projects earlier this week then hop on over to Monday’s post.

Our newest release in July has a 3-D embossing powder with the essence of snow captured because it sparkles and when heated it turns puffy like snow!

It’s such a fantastic way to create large puffy snowflakes! Here’s a card by Laura Drahozal that uses Snowflake Sky Background stamp with Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder and our beautiful Antler Snowflake Stencil covered with Crystal Glitter as the main focus. You can check our her project on our website for all the details.

We have three ways to mix up some snow for your projects! Create a blue wintry affect that is all aglitter. The Frantage Winter Micro Glitter Kit will work with any adhesive and great with our Sticky Panels adhesive sheets.  Build up some fantastic snow drifts with the encrusted jewel technique using our all white embossing enamels and essentials kit of the same name. If it is easy you need then Spoonful of Snow with it’s premix of enamels, glitter and shaved ice are the product for you! Three fabulous snow building kits ready for your snow card or scrapbook page.

Our designers have been building up snowman projects with glitter, enamels and more for this week, so let’s go check what they have for us today!

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

Come on, let’s play!  It seems like we haven’t seen our snow buddies in a while so we thought it would be a great time to create with them again.  Build A Snowman Perfectly Clear Stamps Set is our winter buddies building kit when snow isn’t in the weather forecast, so let’s have fun building a few snowmen to get a jump on a few winter card and scrapbook projects. The design team has their mittens on and shaping up some snowball creations for this week and we can’t wait for the fun to begin.
