For my project, I’m featuring festive products from Sunny Studio Stamps. I made an interactive slider card that I think you will love! Unfortunately, I don’t have a video tutorial this time. I made this card in bits and pieces in between studying and working on college assignments. So next time I’ll have a video for you! 🙂
I started out by masking off a snow hill with masking paper. Then I used Tumbled Glass ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ), Broken China ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS )and Faded Jeans Distres Ink ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) to create a winter sky. To add some texture, I used Texture Paste HLM | AMZUS | AMZUS | ELH ) and a stencil for a snow effect. I sprinkled on some glitter from Tonic ( HLM | AMZUS | SSS ). I’m in love with this glitter! It’s so sparkly and has a very fine texture. However, it’s SUPER messy and it gets everywhere. But it’s really worth it.
After creating my circle base, I stamped a cute penguin from the Snow Kissed stamp set from Sunny Studio Stamps ( HLM | SNN | SSS ). I colored this little guy with Copic markers and then used the coordinating die to cut him out. Next it was time to create my slider piece! I used the Slider dies from Lawn Fawn ( HLM | SSS | ELH | AMZUS ) for that. Finally, I used a sparkle pen from Spectrum Noir ( HLM | AMZUS | ELH | SSS ) and the Clear Glaze from Tonic ( TNCUK | AMZUS | SSS ). You know how much I like to finish a card with some shimmer and shine! 🙂
