Featured Stamper on SCS-Sallie + Blog Candy Winner

   Blog Candy winner- #10 Juliet- who states she just wants the stamps
So, I did random.org again- Glennis gets everything but the stamps.
                 Thanks to all who played!

  I have not played along with the Featured Stamper in ages!  This week, the featured gallery is Sallie.
I found THIS card to inspire me. Can you see how I got the snowflake idea???  I also wanted to try the MoJo Sketch #157 this week. 























  I also took off on the Blue theme of Sallie’s card.  The background is Cuttlebug highlights- I highlighted the embossed area first with Brilliant Blue- too bright….I added Not Quite Navy- and then added Silver Metallic rub-on paste to tone it down a bit more.  The next layer is Ice Crystals- another Technique Junkies Technique……  I played with a Soda can for the snowflake- I embossed it with a Sizzix snowflake I have, added Alcohol inks and sanded it.  I trimmed around the raised areas (instead of leaving the square). 


Here is the embossed snowflake closer up:



















The brads were white- so I painted them with Silver Creative Inspirations Paint. I added a strip of Silver Metallic punched on one side and some Target $1.00 snowflake ribbon.

So cool, I can't believe the snowflake is from a soda can. That is another great "green" idea. Love the TJ backgrounds, too.
