Mod Squad - Just Snowflakes

Dear Ones~
This time over at The Mod Squad Challenge we are doing JUST SNOWFLAKES.  You MUST include only snowflakes and nothing else on your card front or your entry will be eliminated so as not to skew the random drawing. You may include a greeting, but snowflakes MUST be your complete focal.


Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, an online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, a social network for paper crafters and more! Since then they have created a new website called Gina K Designs. Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world. Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs, along with informative and creative crafting videos. There is also a monthly card challenge, where you have 3 chances to win a $25 gift certificate. Visit that HERE.

Here's my card:

For this card I used the GKD stamp set Sparkling Snowflakes. I blended the background with GKD Inks In the Navy, Blue Raspberry and Wild Wisteria, and then took some GKD Watermark and Embossing Ink to stamp some of the snowflake images from the stamp set for a tone on tone look. That gave me the background. I made a “stamp pad” with paper towel and poured some bleach on it to use as “ink”. I then took some of the snowflake stamps, dipped them in the bleach, and stamped on the blended background. I was amazed at how well the bleach brought the snowflake images back to white. I think it has kind of a batik look. The die cut snowflake is from the GKD Snowflake Trio Die set, cut 4 times and layered together. The greeting is also from the Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set. It was heat embossed with GKD White Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Card stocks used are GKD White Heavy Base Weight and Powder Blue. Panels were cut with Master Layouts 7 Die Set.

 Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments. And don't forget to swing on over to The Mod Squad Challenge and play along. You could win the prize.

Until next time, here's celebrating 
your Creative Muse.
