One Last Snowfall anyone...


It's time for a new challenge on the Red Rubber Inspirationals blog.  It's my turn to host and my theme this week is One Last Snowfall.  Watching the forecast across the country I am sure there are  LOT of folks that hope this is their last snowfall of the season they are experiencing right now!!!

So...pull out those snow theme stamps and create something...

For my project I started with a piece of packaging that I had in my craft room.....those clear boxes that some crafty supplies come in.  I have a small stack of them that have been cut into pieces.  I used Stazon ink to stamp the main image from the Snowflake blocks stamp set onto the acetate.  I then took various colors of distress stain and blotted them onto the reverse side of the acetate.  I then added these sparkly brads to the center of the snowflakes.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Sophisticated Sentiments stamp set onto white cardstock and backed it with two colors of cardstock.  I then embossed the scrap of white cardstock and mounted it onto the same two cardstock colors and then onto my card base.


Be sure to check out the other snow related projects featured on the blog today...and enter your project!!!

You have until March 19 at 11:59PM to enter your project right here......so what are you waiting for...


Happy crafting...Lynda
