A Whisper on My Nose - New Quietfire Snowflakes!

We’re adding to the growing collection of snowflake quotes available on the Quietfire site! I just counted 17 stamps and sets about snow or with snowflakes!   We’re using this new stamp to make a fun card with Distress Oxides. The colours remind you of icy winter days! 
Here is how you can make this card.  I did my best to match the cardstock to the Distress colours.  It took me a while!!

Quietfire A Whisper on my Nose 

Imagine Crafts VersaMark
Imagine Crafts VersaMagic Ocean Depth

Ranger Distress Oxides – Salty Ocean, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, Peacock Feathers
Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper
Ranger Clear Embossing Powder
Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool
American Crafts Cardstock - Powder
Core’dinations  Cardstock - Nassau Blue

Scrapbook Adhesives EZ Runner Permanent Strips
Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Foam Tape

Staples White Cardstock
Spritzer bottle
Craft Mat
Stamp Positioner
Heat tool


1.       Form a 5” square tent fold card base from Nassau Blue cardstock.

2.       Cut a piece of Specialty Stamping paper approximately 6” square. Stamp snowflakes from A Whisper on my Nose stamp set randomly, but avoiding the center of your piece (where you will stamp the sentiment) with VersaMark.  Apply clear embossing powder to the stamped snowflakes and heat emboss.

3.       Apply Distress Oxides to your craft mat, spritz with water and lay your embossed snowflakes face down.  Don’t rub, just press, then lift.  If you like the look, allow to dry.  You can repeat this process, which I did, using more Salty Ocean.  When the piece was dry, blend some more ink on the white spots and then misted the surface.  Allow to dry.

4.       Use a stamp positioning tool to stamp the sentiment with VersaMagic Ocean Depth as shown.  Trim this panel to 4” square and adhere to a mat cut slightly larger from white cardstock. Mat again with Powder cardstock using foam tape and adhere to card base with more foam tape.
Have fun!
Thanks for taking a look!
