This month the Rinea Design Team has been given the opportunity to work with stamps from Joy Clair Designs. I wasted no time in selecting the Cozy Snowman Wishes set because I knew the snowmen stamps in the set would work perfectly with an embossing folder in my stash.
Time to play...
I created the background of this card with a paper piecing technique using an embossing folder instead of stamps. I started by embossing 3 pieces of cardstock to create the base for 3 cards. I also embossed 3 different colors of foiled paper: Lavender/Gold Glossy, Sapphire/Gold Glossy and Sapphire/Sapphire Starstruck.
Using scissors I carefully trimmed out the trees from the foiled papers.
I wanted to leave one of the 4 embossed trees on each card plain white cardstock. I chose 3 of the foiled trees - mixing the colors and finishes- and glued them in the corresponding place on the card front.
Now it was time to add those cute snowmen I told you about! I stamped them on white card stock, trimmed them out and added color and a bit of Stickles.
I went back to the Cozy Snowman Wishes set to create stamped and die cut sentiments for each of the cards. The mat for this one was cut from Lavender/Lavender Starstruck foiled paper.
This one uses Merlot/Gold Glossy foiled paper.
See how I mixed up the tree colors in each of the backgrounds?
I hope you are now running to your stash of embossing folders! Paper piecing with embossing folders and Rinea Foiled Paper creates absolutely stunning results!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!
