Brightly Gleaming Snow

Hello Everyone ~ are you ready to see the Brightly Gleaming Snow idea that uses another designer series paper.

You would not believe what I got done yesterday morning.  I was able to clean out my garage, wash the windows in my studio, wash all the rest of my screens, put the screens back in the windows I am keeping them in, and put the rest of the screens in the attic for storage.  After all that I needed a shower and then had my lunch.  I took a little bit of time to relax a little and then went up to my studio and made 2 cards and a video.  It was a very successful day.  Today I am going to prepare for my class tomorrow and in the afternoon I have a time slot to do a make-n-take at the library again.  I am hoping the librarian who told me she knew some people were coming is correct.

There was such a great response to the series I did using the Feels Like Frost dsp that I thought I would do another one of the papers in my 2019 Holiday Product share.  This time I will be sharing ideas for the Brightly Gleaming dsp.  This is gorgeous paper with copper accents.  I will be showing you how you can use this paper in other ways besides Christmas.  Make sure you get some of this gorgeous paper to play with using the ideas I will be sharing with you.  Today’s card uses the Navy star pattern.  This is gorgeous paper and I thought it would be good for a night sky.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do and would be perfect for a #ShopYourCraftStash idea.  I wanted to use the Hometown Greetings Edgelits to create a scene.  I chose the 2 strips with the houses and using some Whisper White card stock I cut both of them out.  I started with a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of card stock so I would have plenty of extra to cut off.  After I cut the edgelits out, they were glued together.  I wanted them to glisten like they were covered with snow so I used the Wink of Stella glitter brush and went over the whole piece.  Next I used my Brightly Gleaming dsp and to ensure I did not use more of the dsp that I did not need I used my card base and set the edgelits down and measured the length I needed to cover the background.  After I cut the dsp I glued it onto the card base and then added the houses.  To finish the card I used the Itty Bitty Greetings and copper embossing powder for the sentiment.  Here is the completed  Brightly Gleaming Snow idea.

Copper is a great alternative for a metallic on you card. Check out this designer series paper that was was used for my Brightly Gleaming Snow creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  Today’s card was the one I made on World Card Making Day.  Did you make any cards on Saturday?  I hope you had some time to play.  Have a Marvelous Monday and I love the copper accents in this Brightly Gleaming Snow creation.
