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.

Ringed With Nature Hybrid Embossing Folder

We all know what an embossing folder is:  a way to add touchable texture to a stamping project. But what is a hybrid embossing folder? Hybrid embossing is a step up from using an embossing folder.  Let’s look at the latest Stampin’ Up! Hybrid Embossing Folder, the Ringed with Nature Hybrid Embossing Folder.

Ringed With Nature Bundle

The Ringed with Nature stamp set is one of those multi options sets.  In other words:  it’s great for a variety of seasons and occasions.  It has a lot of images for all four seasons and the sentiments also work for many cards.  The stamp set and the Hybrid Embossing folder come as a bundle (save 10% when you purchase the bundle) and you CAN buy them separately.

Here’s how the Ringed with Nature Hybrid Embossing Folder works:

Cut and Emboss at one Time

It contains an embossing folder and dies to use with it. The dies fit into the embossing images in the folder so that you can run it thru the Stampin‘ Cut & Emboss machine and emboss the texture while you cut the image.

Emboss Only or Cut Only

You can use the embossing folder WITHOUT the dies and get an embossed look only.  The dies may also be used WITHOUT the embossing folder to cut out separate elements for your project. See examples of both of these on this card.

You can also stamp, cut, and layer pieces of the rings with outer bark design and inner wood design to show a slice of tree.  Of course, you’re not REALLY cutting bark and wood, just paper representations of them!  But they look very realistic. 

There are additional dies to cut an acorn, berries, small wood branches (logs?), leaves, and the split centers of wood.

FREE Coordinating DSP

Some shapes can be cut from the FREE coordinating Sale-a Bration item, Rings of Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) FREE with a $50 purchase July 1-Aug 31, 2022). Don’t Delay! Sale-a-bration ends soon!

Special Tip

TIP:  I laid the individual rings dies on the embossing folder and then labeled the embossing folder and the rings from 1-5 (top to bottom) with a permanent marker so that when I want to cut and emboss single images I can place the die quickly in the proper place.

Card Instructions

  1. Cut a 5-1/2” X 8-1/2” card base from Crumb Cake cardstock. Fold and burnish for a horizontal card base.
  2. Cut a 3-3/4” X 5” piece of Basic White cardstock
  3. Cut a 1-3/8” X 5 piece of the Rings of Love DSP.  I used the paper with the pattern leaves, flowers, and butterflies.
  4. Cut and emboss one of the rings with border from Crumb Cake cardstock
  5. Stamp “Just for You” on a small piece of Basic White using Soft Suede ink.
  6. Cut and emboss the Basic White piece using the single ring die that fits around your stamped image to cut the ring that matches the outer ring previously cut and embossed.
  7. Stamp the mushroom stems approximately ¾” from the bottom edge of the Basic White cardstock using Early Espresso and the mushroom tops using Poppy Parade ink.
  8. Adhere the strip of DSP to the lower edge.
  9. Tie a piece of the Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim around the front of the card with a knot toward the left side.
  10. Adhere the white assembled piece to center of the front of the card.

Let’s Set Sail Simple Easel

Let's Set Sail Lead

It’s another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop and today’s hop is all about Heat Embossing. I used the Let’s Set Sail bundle to make my project.

Let’s Set Sail

The Let’s Set Sail Bundle comes with the stamp set and coordinating Sailboat Builder Punch. The punch cuts out the sailboat and sails. It’s such a darling bundle and the punch makes it so easy to create the cute little sailboat.

Embossing the Sea

You may be wondering what I’ve embossed on this card. Actually, this is an idea I’ve had in the back of my mind for some time. My original idea was to use the Birch stamp to emboss on some of our DSP (Designer Series Paper) that didn’t have foiling to add a little pizzazz. And I still plan to try that!

But for this project, I masked off the top of a Basic White panel and used our Blending Brushes to add Balmy Blue to the panel. I then added Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the panel.

Next, I took the Birch stamp and used it to stamp with VersaMark over the still masked panel. I removed the mask and embossed with silver embossing powder. This panel was then cut using a die from the Scalloped Contours Die set.

Putting it all together

This panel was added to a slightly larger Real Red panel, and then adhered with Dimensionals to a Misty Moonlight panel that has White Faux Linen ribbon across one corner. Next, the Misty Moonlight layer was adhered to a panel the same size as my card front.

Simple Easel

It’s so easy to make a simple easel card! For this one, I simply scored the front of my Balmy Blue card base horizontally across the center, then adhered the layered panel (same size as my card front) ONLY to the bottom half of the card front. When you open and fold on the scored line, the card will become an easel.

The Basic White card “stop” (the piece that holds the card open) was stamped with Misty Moonlight and cut with the smallest die from the Scalloped Contours Die set. It was attached with Dimensionals to the card base, and birds were added with Misty Moonlight ink.

Let's Set Sail Easel


Before assembling the card, I stamped and punched the sailboat using Soft Suede and Real Red inks on Basic White, stamped the shadow under the boat with Balmy Blue, and added Misty Moonlight birds. The boat is glued to the card, and the sails are attached with Dimensionals for depth.

Finally, I added silver epoxy dots from the Silver and Clear Epoxy Essentials embellishment pack.
