Happiness Surrounds Meets Snowfall Thinlits

Happiness Surrounds Meets Snowfall Thinlits

Happiness Surrounds, what a perfect name for this stamp set. It contains so many versatile sentiments and images.  It makes me happy! This set is part of the Snowflake Showcase promotion that is available through the end of November or while supplies last. In this project, I wanted to show you how you can create a beautiful card with the set and the Snowfall Thinlits dies.  And if you know me, you know I love techniques and threw in a few.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Happiness Surrounds, Stampin' Up!

Doesn’t this card remind you of a snowy wintery morning?  In southeast Louisiana, those are far and few between, but when it happens, this is the look I remember.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Happiness Surrounds, Stampin' Up!

I started things off with a piece of watercolor paper, 3 3/4″ x 5″.  Then I dropped about 3 drops of our Balmy Blue ink refill in a little dish and watered it down with my aqua painter.  Be sure to lightly wet the backside of your watercolor paper to help it from curling too much while you are working. Next, you will really need to saturate the front of the paper.  Pick up some color for the dish and drop it on, watch the magic happen.  Each panel will be different, but that’s the fantastic part.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Happiness Surrounds, Stampin' Up!

I wanted the card to be more of a generic wintery card, that’s why I chose the Happiness Surrounds set.  I knew I wanted to create a cool snowy look, that’s where the watercolor wash techniques came in. After the watercolor paper dried, I wanted it to sparkle a little, so I watered down a couple drops of our Vegas Gold Shimmer paint in a small dish.  Then the fun part, splatter it on. Once that was dry, I ran my embossing buddy over the surface, stamped the “Hello Friend” from the Happiness Surrounds set in Versa Mark and sprinkled with gold embossing powder.  Then, melted the powder with the heat tool.

In this photo, I think you can almost see that the large snowflake has a “puffy” sort of dimension.  That’s because I cut it from the limited edition White Velvet Sheets.  It is very light weight and easy to cut and really packs a WOW factor.

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Happiness Surrounds, Stampin' Up!

The next technique was to custom color our beautiful Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle.  I just cut a strip and put it into the dish that contained the leftover watered down Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint.  Now I’ve got gold polka dot ribbon, but with a shimmer, FANTASTIC!!

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Happiness Surrounds, Stampin' Up!

I couldn’t stop there.  I had to see what else I could do with the white velvet sheets.  So, I cut a 3″ x 3″ piece and dropped on quite a few drops of the watered down Balmy Blue ink refill.  Letting it dry and absorb into the paper, before cutting the smaller snowflake is very important.  Once that happened, I created a 3″ x 3″ gift card. I love the look.  

Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Happiness Surrounds, Stampin' Up!

You could add as much or as little of the color to make your own one-of-a-kind snowflake. I thought it might be easier for you to see some of these techniques in action, so here is my FREE video tutorial.  Let me know if you have any questions or need any help.

Here’s how the magic happens.
