Snowfall Accents Puff Paint

Snowfall Accents 1

Today’s post is an introduction to the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint. You can find it in the 2022 July-December Mini Catalog on page 43. Puff Paint is the perfect accent for your Christmas and Winter projects.

Snowfall Accents Puff Paint

Snowfall Accents Puff Paint is advertised by Stampin’ Up! As a wintry accent for creating perfect puffs of snow. It does do this very well. 

Easy to Use

Simply shake the bottle before using, apply a thin coating to your artwork and use the Heat Tool to transform it into festive 3D snowflake accents.

A Few Examples

Not Just for Snow

Snowfall Accents Puff paint is not just for snow!  This decorative accent can be used for so many more creative accents.  Such as:

  • Beverage foam – any beverage that has a foamy layer on top – such as a freshly poured mug beer or a root beer float
  • Whipped Cream – top off a dessert image or ice cream shake with a topping of fluffy whipped cram
  • Marshmallows – add dimension to a s’more dessert image or a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows floating on top
  • Bubble Bath – imagine a bubble bath overflowing with bubbles – give those bubbles some dimension & texture with this puff paint
  • Clouds – add dimension to images of clouds to emphasize
  • Stones – give a stone walkway some dimension by adding puff paint to the stones. Then add color after heat setting with a Stampin’ Write Marker or Blends Marker.

Note: Stampin’ Up! Does warn that applying the paint over a stamped image may cause the ink to smear. I did not experience this, but I suggest you test a sample before applying the paint to a piece of artwork that you have spent a lot of time working on.

Perfectly Penciled DSP

Today we are going to use the Perfectly Penciled DSP (Designer Series Paper) along with a card sketch as our inspiration for a Thank-You card.

Using a Card Sketch

Like all sketches, card sketches act as a starting point for your creativity. You can change the orientation and get creative with the shapes and elements you add to them.

This is the card sketch we’ll be using today.

Perfectly Penciled DSP

This paper features sketched flower designs alongside fabulous backgrounds, such as stripes, dots and other repeating patterns. You may use the papers as they are or add color to them by sponging or spritzing. You can also color in the flowers with any of your coloring tools. For this project I left them as black and white designs.

Our Card

To create our card, I used a piece of Designer Series paper with a small all-over flower design for the background. Next, I added a strip of striped paper horizontally and trimmed the corners. This is added to a standard sized Basic Black card base.

Instead of circles, I used the stitched squares from the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut the mats in the center of the card using Basic Black and Basic White cardstock. A bow of Black Twine was adhered to the back before the mats were added with Dimensionals.

Our Focal Point

I used a section of flowers cut from one of the papers and cut sections of this to layer onto the squares. Some pieces were added with glue and others were raised up with Dimensionals. I also added two butterflies from the paper.

A sentiment from the Nature’s Harvest stamp set was added to the bottom of the center panel. To finish, sprinkle on a few of the black and white Classic Matte dots.

Give it a Go

These papers are beautiful and provide so many creative opportunities. Whether you use these papers, or experiment with a totally different selection of products do give the sketch a go. Just by changing elements and colors you can use the same basic layout yet create totally different looks.

Five Ways to Use Washi Tape to Create Halloween Cards

Washi Tape Group

Punch

  • Take a small piece of 3×3 thick basic white card stock.
  • Add the glitter washi tape to the cardstock at an angle.  I use my silicone craft pad to help me out.
  • Once you finish taping your cardstock, cut off all the overhang of washi tape.
  • Put the cover basic white into the Witch Hat Builder Punch. Punch out the witch’s hat.
  • Assemble the card

Yes, my witch’s hat moves.  It’s attached with a small wobble (non-Stampin’ Up). Remember to decorate the inside of the card and your envelope

Die Cut

  • Do the same steps as above but put the washi tape on the basic white card stock in a straight line.
  • Use the Stampin’ emboss & cut machine to die cut your image.
  • Assemble the card

On DSP

  • I wanted straight lines as a background for the DSP (Designer Series Paper).   (You can also use washi in diagonal lines).  Cut off the overhang.
  • Assemble card

Frame

  • 3 ½” x 4 ¼” piece of Basic White
  • Take the glitter purple washi tape and make a frame around the end of the cardstock.
  • Assemble the card

Background

  • Took a piece of Black & White Designs DSP and added glitter washi tape
  • Cut off the overlap.
  • Assemble the card

I hope you’ve enjoyed these projects and the different ways to use Washi Tape. I also hope you’ll be inspired to create your own projects with this beautiful glittery tape!
