Today I have two cards for you and both are a little different for me. 
Let's get to it!


I originally had a completely different idea but sometimes as you work through the process different ideas start to emerge that maybe you like a little better than the original game plan lol. 
Ultimately, these two card started with some distress oxide ink. 


I pulled out the Rainbow Sherbet paper pack and started matching distress oxide colors. Surprisingly, it wasn't hard at all. I ink blending my entire panel to use with my Huge Snowflake dies. Once I started die cutting I really loved the negative piece that was left behind so I decided to use it too!  


I used the positive snowflakes paired with a striped paper from the pack and a heat embossed sentiment from Snowy Salutations. I  did add a few white glitter snowflakes into the mix as well!


I used the same glitter paper as the base of my distress oxide piece. Another heat embossed sentiment and more enamel dots finished this one off. 

You can see the entire process in the video below. 



Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Mindy Baxter
I just know she's made something incredible!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
