Carta Bella Winter Fun!

Hello sweet blog friends!  This is my second post today!
Design team projects from The Scrapbooking Studio will be shared!  This is a LONG post, so get your favorite blogging drink and enjoy!

First up, a card:  The card front was embossed with Tim Holtz snowflake embossing folder, then sanded with a sanding grip and inked with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  For the focal, a large image from Just Rite Clear Christmas Vintage Labels One was stamped onto kraft card stock with Coffee Archival Ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  The image was then cut and dry embossed with Spellbinders Vintage Label and Banner dies.  A fancy tag was cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die and red cardstock and layered onto the craft label.  The sticker from the sticker sheet was layered onto another die cut piece.

The pleated ribbon brings a nice pop of red to the card, layered with stickers to cover the stitching.  A flower was made from more pleated ribbon and topped with a Teresa Collins jewel.

The card is an easel.  To hold it up, an embellished Maya Road snowflake was glued to the inside.

A close-up of the snowflake.  To achieve this look, the naked chipboard was covered with embossing ink and sprinkled with snowflake tinsel embossing powder and heated.  When cool, the piece was covered with glue and blue glitter.  A Teresa Collins jewel covered the center.


 The title "SNOW" and a large snowflake were cut on the Cricut.  The hexagon shapes are Maya Road Chipboard covered  with paper from the line and letter stickers.  Border stickers from the sticker sheet were used on the top and bottom of the title mat.  

For the coordinating page,  the negative of the snowflake was glued to another patterned paper from  the line.  The snow man was cut on the Cricut - love that he has a red heart!  A layered journaling piece and a Maya Road snowflake, embossed with snowflake tinsel embossing powder and topped with a Teresa Collins jewel.  See close-ups below.

My altered project this month was made with one sheet of 12 x 12 paper for the base, folded and cut to form a book.  The first page was punched with a Mini-8  Vine punch to make the shaped edge.  Rayon ribbon was colored with Faded Jeans Distress Stain, crumpled into a ball to dry and then tied onto the project in a double bow.

 This page corner was also punched with the Mini 8 Vine punch.
