Snowflakes are the Butterflies!

Sherry here with you today!  I’ve been in a tag and snowflake making mood recently and what better thing to hit my mailbox yesterday, but the new Quietfire Design set – Snowflakes are the Butterflies.


This tag was made with watercolor paper that was misted with a combination of Tumbled Glass and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink Refills that were mixed with water and Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls.  While the paper was still damp, it was embossed with Spellbinders Holiday Magic M-Bossabilities.  Leaving the paper damp gives such deep embossing and adding some Perfect Pearls to the water mixture gives great shimmer.

The sentiment was stamped in Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz Ink and embossed with Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder.  The sentiment was then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Ovals LG.  The background layer to the sentiment is another piece of watercolor paper misted with the same Distress Ink mixture and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  Both layers of the sentiment, including the tag, were edged with Krylon Gold Leafing Pen.

The snowflakes are white shipping labels that were die cut with a combination of Spellbinders Create-A-Flake Three, Create-A-Flake Four and the 2012 Snowflake Ornament.  Each piece was covered with Glossy Accents and sprinkled with Krystallos Vintage Glass Glitter.  The flourishes were die cut from a white shipping tag with the flair from Spellbinders Venetian Motifs and painted with the Krylon Gold Leafing Pen.

The seam binding ribbon was dyed with a combination of Evergreen Bough Distress Ink and then misted with the Tumbled Glass Perfect Pearl mixture.

That’s all for me today, except to say thanks for stopping by!
