SC204 Carribean Snowflakes

I really really really like this new Our Daily Bread Designs set. It is called "Worship the Lord" and the main image is the snowy country church scene. Also included are 2 sentiments and a scripture passage from Psalms 100:2. It's SO pretty. For my first card with this set, I stamped the church image on a transparency in Stazon ink. Turning it over I added Crystal Effects where there would be snow and then covered that with dazzling Diamonds glitter and let it sit overnight. For the rest of the card I used Basic grey "Figgy Pudding" papers and Cool Caribbean and Natural White Cardstock. I wanted the "Rejoice" sentiment to sparkle so I used a trick I learned a long time ago to emboss with any color. I inked up the stamp in Versamark and working quickly inked it up in Cool Caribbean as well and then stamped it and added Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The powder will stick to the Versamark ink, but I've tricked it to sticking to the "color" as well. You've got to work fast, but this allows you to emboss with ANY Stampin Up Classic ink. Cool, huh? I've also smooshed the snowflakes in the same embossing powder so they sparkle too.
Don't forget about the coupon for Free Shipping at ODBD this weekend. Kelley has lots of fun stuff in addition to the awesome stamps she carries!
