create a smile stamps - october release countdown

just a few more days, and then you will be able to get your hands on the Create a Smile Stamps october realease!!
it's impossible to say this is my favorite release ever...but wow! this is amazing!

and we're also collaborating with WOW this month, so the amount of heat embossing inspiration you're going to get is gigantic! :) ha ha!

today i have a card on the create a smile blog in anticipation of this very cute, very unique and very INCREDIBLE release! 

love it!!
those snowflakes from Smiling Snowflakes

i heat embossed the snowflakes in the Earthtone Pepper embossing powder. then used tumbled glass and peacock feathers distress inks to add the blue color!  loooooooooove how it turned out!! i also added some water droplets to the ink to add to the winter-y, wonder-y snow-y-ness of the blue background! :)

then i added the sentiment onto a strip of vellum and heat embossed that in white. i just added a few white enamel dots for a little extra dimension, and that's the card! 

make sure you head over to the Create a Smile Stamps blog to see even MORE inspiration! and in case you missed it, here is a video that shows all of the new release!!
