Let It Snow...

....just kidding!! I'm okay with no snow, but my project is all about the pretty, sparkly snow and icicles that the cold and water can create!

I started with some canvas banners I had stashed away (and had forgotten I had) and stamped my snowflake image in Stormy Sky and Mermaid Lagoon.

I stamped the words in Mermaid Lagoon on cotton ribbon

My plans for my project changed from my original idea as soon as I saw the Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder! I used it on all my icicles and sprinkled it on some Ranger Texture Past for some snowflakes to add dimension.

I stamped the icicles, then rubbed them in Brushed Pewter Distress Stain and Stormy Sky Distress Ink. Then sprinkled Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder on and heat set it. Love the shimmer and puffiness!
I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Ranger Texture Paste to add some dimensional snowflakes, and sprinkled them all with Soft Fallen Snow embossing powder.

Had to have my snowflake charms to add some bling and because I love these charms!

And the finished project with three banners together with some old twine. The icicle stamps from Emerald Creek are so amazing!! All the different sizes can be used for so many ideas! They are a must have!
