PTI November Blog Hop... let it snow!

Hello!  The 25th of the month has rolled around again and that means time for a new PTI blog hop.  This one is all about snow!  Here in Western Washington we don't get a lot of snow, except up in the mountains and that is where I prefer it to stay, lol.  Love looking at Mt. Rainier covered in snow on a bright winter day.  But driving in it??  Not so much!  Anyway... on to my card.


I bought the PTI Wonderful Words: Snow set last year and this is the first time I have actually used it.  I stamped the word "snow" and the phrase "let it" from the set in watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and then heat set it.  Once that was done I stamped the snowflakes (from the PTI set Winter Swirls) in three different Distress inks (Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Salty Ocean) randomly around and over the embossed area.  Stormy Skies was then sponged on over the sentiment and snowflakes.  I finished off the card by adhering some snowflake, light blue and clear sequins.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & spring rain; Stamps:  PTI; Ink:  VersaMark and Ranger Distress inks;  Sequins:  Lawn Fawn and Pretty Pink Posh
