Flurry of Winter Wishes – Taylored Expressions

Photo Jul 26, 8 41 26 AM

I haven’t been able to step away from the new Frosty Kit from Taylored Expressions!

I’m pretty sure the little guy in the upper corner is supposed to be singing but he also looks a little surprised about being upside down, don’t you think?

Quick tips:

  • After cutting a few random circles from a card front, I lightly penciled them onto the card base and chose a few winter colors of Distress Oxide Ink (Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Shaded Lilac) to add some color behind the circle.
  • In this case, I used blender brushes to get a nice fade back to white in each circle.
  • If you’re nervous about blending into the other circles (I was), just use post it notes to cover the circles as you go.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I pulled out all the stops to create the background:

  • I start by blending Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. I used blender brushes so I could get the fade to white at the bottom.
  • Next I added Gina K Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel using the stencil included in the kit. You’ll need to complete that in two steps if you’re making a slimline card to give it time to dry.
  • Once the ink and glitter gel are dry, I stamped the snowflakes included in the kit with embossing ink and used Hero Arts satin pearl embossing powder.
  • The background was finished off with a few of the small snowflakes from the kit.
