Snowflakes and Silver... by Stephanie

It's that time of year again!

Handmade gifts, ornaments and cards have been in process, causing stress, grey hair and plenty of happiness and joy as Christmas Day approaches.

Come share your creations of gifts, cards, tags & decor!


Hello from Tennessee! Stephanie, here to share a fun wintry wall hanging for this month's Dare Challenge! We don't get much snow down here in the south so I decided to create a snowy wall hanging. The wall hanging can be used for notes or maybe outgoing mail or just pretty winter decor. I used several Emerald Creek embossing powders, stamp and charm. 

The wall hangings base is a wooden embroidery hoop. I painted a scrap piece of paper with Art-C Luxe paint. To create the pocket (for mail, notes etc) I stretched one layer glitter tulle over the hoop and then folded another piece of tulle in half. Natural cotton fibers are wound and glued around the rim of the embroidery hoop.

I embellished the the hoop with wooden and metal snowflake diecuts. The large wooden snowflake is embossed with Silver Sparkle (has to be the most beautiful silver and perfect for winter crafts).

The metal snowflakes are embossed with Turquoise Sparkle and Silver Sparkle EC embossing powders.

I stamped two Vera Lane Studio journal cards I had in my stash with Snowflake cling mount stamp. The colors matched perfectly for this project. One card is stamped with embossing ink and Silver Sparkle. The second card is double stamped with aqua ink and then offset a bit and embossed with Silver Sparkle. Isn't that just beautifully sparkly?!

To finish the wall hanging I tied another Silver Sparkle embossed snowflake and added a Pinecone charm. I added a few Glossy Accent dots on the snowflakes for a little extra added dimension.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday! Don't forget to join the challenge as well!
