Dies to Die For - Heidi

Hey Everyone

I hope you all have had a great weekend and are having a good week.

Today I would like to share with you another beautiful Wee Stamp and this one is called Heidi - gorgeous isn't she.

Here is the full card:

Mmm - do you think I've overdone it with the snowflakes?  I am so out of my comfort zone with having bits going outside the edges of the card (I must have OCD that is for sure), but I have always admired all the talented ladies who do this and do it so well.

Anways, the recipe for the card is as follows:

Stamp:  Wee Stamps - Heidi
Papers:  My Minds Eye - All is Bright
Kraft Card:  Bazzill Kraft
Large Side Snowflake Die:  Tim Holtz Alterations - On The Edge - Snow Flurries (this is showing out of stock at the moment but drop Tracy an e-mail and I'm sure she'll get it for you)
Small Snowflakes Die:  Cheery Lynn - Snowflakes
Sentiment Die:  Die-Namics - Fishtail Flags
Ribbon, Button & Bells:  The Hobby House
Mesh & Button Twine:  The Ribbon Girl

The image has been coloured with Copics, Promarkers and Flexmarkers as follows:

Skin: E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E59 E37 E35 E34 E31
Hair Ribbons:  R39 R29 R27 R24
Dress:  Satin (Promarker) / Antique White (Flexmarker) / E0000
Jacket & Boots:  E43 E42 E41 E40

I have outlined the image with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
All the papers and card have been edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink
I have given a good old Glamour Dust treatment to all the snowflakes and the jacket, handwarmer and pom poms

I thought I would try and show you a close up of that fabulous Cheery Lynn Snowflakes die:

The picture really doesn't do it justice, you get absolutely oodles of snowflakes on this die - it's just brilliant.

Well that's it from me for now.  I hope you all have a fantastic week.

Take care and be safe.

Ta ta for now

Morning Hazel what a fabulously pretty Christmas card. Love the image and papers and your design. I'm with you on over the edge decorations I love to see them but not sure if I could do one. My first reaction is how will it fit in the envelope - sad or what!!

This is just amazing Hazel, all your cards are so inspiring, I love seeing your work because it's always fantastic and I get so many wonderful ideas from you! (like the ink around the images tutorial you gave, i've made an order for the dusters and inkpads so i can do it too :P)

Do you mind me asking, I know it's a silly question but I'm at sea with this one lol, what do you use to stick your Glamour Dust on?
