Winter Wonderland | Season's Greetings with Laura

Hello Winnie & Walter friends! It's Laura here and today I am here with a holly jolly shaker card using two different Winnie & Walter stamp sets and one fabulous die cut from Ellen Hutson.

I started out by stamping snowflakes from the Big Bang Flurries stamp set. This stamp set is simply wonderful. I used the large rectangle and stamped it about 6 times using white pigment ink. It is super easy and fast to do! Since pigment ink takes a very long time to dry, I sprinkled Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder from WOW over the wet snowflakes. After heat setting the powder, you end up with beautiful glittery snowflakes.

After die cutting a circle, I created a vellum overlay with a sentiment on. I used one of my favorite stamp sets from Winnie & Walter for that. It's the Winter Woodland stamp set and it is magnificent. :) I simply heat embossed a greeting on a piece of vellum using white embossing powder. Then, I added teeny tiny dots of Glossy Accents behind the white embossed letters to adhere the banner. Easy! 

I am a huge fan of sequin shakers so I decided to create another one. This time I used a new medium to create a shaker. Instead of using foam tape or foam squares, I used a new product called Fun Foam. I will be using this product in one of my upcoming videos. (Click HERE for a link to my YouTube channel.) I filled up the shaker with Pretty Pink Posh sequins. Finally, I die cut a stag head using glitter paper and the Prize Stag die cut from Ellen Hutson. Oh and of course I adhered a tiny red sequin so that this stag head would turn into Rudolph the Reindeer. *wink*

Thanks so much for visiting! Happy holidays!
