Winter Wonderland - Bonnie Hampton, Guest Designer



Hello everyone! I am delighted to be guest designer for Quietfire Design this month. I use so many of Suzanne's elegant calligraphy stamps on my cards, they stamp beautifully time after time and add the extra touch of style to my cards.
Today I have chosen a winter themed card to share with you. Here is how you can make it.

Instructions:
  1. Winter Wonderland Stamp Set
    Start with smooth Bristol paper and scribbled various colors of Zig Clean Color brush markers in a random pattern on it. Spritz with water until the colors started to blend on their own. Don't be tempted to tilt the paper at this point as the colors lose their individuality and you get a very muted blend. Let dry completely.
  2. Dry emboss some snowflakes on the edges. I used a Sizzix embossing folder and only embossed parts of the pattern on various parts of the card. 
  3. Now stamp and heat emboss Quietfire's Winter Wonderland greeting, snowflakes and deer in silver embossing powder.
  4. Edge each side of the panel with Inkssentials foil tape sheets and mount the panel on a textured white card base. 

I made a second card in the same fashion this time deleting the pink from the color scheme and going just with icy blues and greens. I chose a circular base and this time fussy cut the deer after embossing and popped it up on the edge.




Ed. Note:  Bonnie is a busy crafter and makes lots of gorgeous cards!  Check out her blog https://bonnielynnsblog.wordpress.com/  for a real treat!  Make sure you leave her some love in the comments!  Bonnie will be back in a couple of weeks with more inspiration.
