Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Snow Much Fun

From Millan.Net

Do you remember when I was on the first Design Team for the Heart2Heart Challenges Blog(It seems like so long ago.)
Well I've been asked back to be a part of the All Star Alumnae Design Team!From Millan.Net

I was very flattered they thought of me and was so happy to accept!  So let's get started right away with this week's challenge...Snow Much Fun!

This week we want to see all your creations using snow as a theme.  Card, layout, home decor...anything that comes to mind when you think of that glittering white stuff!
From Millan.Net in Tucson doesn't give me a lot of chances to actually have snow much fun of any kind!  But I did find some photos of a day trip we took up the mountain one year specifically to play in the snow.

Take a look...

Inks: White Daisy
Papers: Black cardstock, Slate cardstock, Whisper cardstock, White Daisy cardstock
Tools: Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Spray Pen, Make It From Your Heart Vol. 1 (Pattern 4)
Accessories: Silver Shimmer Trim, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint

I started out by cutting some snowflakes to use as masks.  I used the Snowflake found on page 22 of the Art Philosophy booklet.  I cut them at 4", 3", 2", and 1".  After placing them around my Slate cardstock, I sprayed my paper with a mixture of Pearl Paint and alcohol.  I think I may have over done it a bit, you can see a few wrinkles in my layout...even after I ironed them!  Ah, live and learn.

But it does give the layout such a nice shimmer!  I did go around the edges of the masks with some White Daisy ink, just to make them stand out a bit more.

For the squares of Whisper cardstock, I again used the White Daisy to ink the edges, putting more on the bottom and right sides.  I wanted to give the impression of a frosty winter window.

I cut four layers of the title at 1.5" and stacked them all together to make my own chipboard letters!

Here is a close up:

Look at how much that Shimmer Trim sparkles!

If you'd like to join in the fun this week...and really, why wouldn't you?...then get crafting and share your creation over at H2H.  If you need some more inspiration, head over there and check out the other team members projects.

After all this wintery fun, I think I'll go make myself some hot cocoa! From Millan.Net Stay Warm my Friends!

    I love the misting mask on your layout! It gives it a shivery wintry feel!


  2. great job on the misting! looks really 'cool'!

  3. Love how you used the negative of the Snowflake cut outs. This layout came together wonderfully and the Silver shimmer trim really made the blocks pop.
    Thanks for sharing.
