October Rudolph Days

Hi everyone.  Happy to be playing along with Rudolph Day's October challenge.  I've been playing along each month and it's helped me build my stash of Christmas cards.

Today's card is very different.  I just received this amazing image in the mail.  I love Visible Images that have things breaking away and have a few of them.  This snowflake makes for a very artsy image, and paired with Fractured Ice Embossing Powder, it really is cool! (pun intended). :)

This was simply stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with the Fractured Ice embossing powder.  Sentiment was stamped onto a black banner with Versamark and heat embossed in white.  Stamped over the sentiment again (Misti is awesome!) and then heat embossed with the Fractured Ice.  The white was a great base so that the colours of the fractured ice would show up on black.

Close-up ... lots of shine that reflects in my light box.
A very simple and quick card.

I hope you'll check out Rudolph Day's challenge and come play along.  It runs from 25th - end of month and is always "Anything Goes Christmas".

Love this, Loll. The Fractured Ice ep is fabulous with that snowflake stamp. And the sentiment looks great double embossed.

I took one look and thought the snowflake was melting, and when I read your narrative, I learned that was the way it was designed - love it - a really artsy look to this gorgeous card Loll. The embossing powder you used is perfect for the image.

So pretty Loll. Those VI stamps are something different, only have a couple myself, the snowflake looks as though it's melting.
A good job it isn't cold enough for snow here as we'd be buried. It hasn't stopped raining since yesterday morning and the yard is flooded now, looks like the garden will have to wait and what better way to spend another dreak day than in the craftroom! :)

This is a beautiful reminder for me to get out that Fractured Ice Embossing Powder you sent me. Love this snowflake!

Brenda in IN said...

This is stunning. I've never used that embossing powder before and now I have to have it!

HilaryJane said...

Great stamp, quirky and a bit different, looks great with the heat embossing. I really like how you have done the sentiment too xx

Nstiz said...

That is such a beautiful and unique embossing powder giving your image such an artsy look. I've never heard of this one before but really like the effects of that.

Happy Dance said...

That loud thud you heard early this morning was my jaw hitting the desk. Loll, I love this card! The image is soo cool, and so different that much that's out there. Done with that FI embossing powder, it really does have that wintery look. And the white embossing beneath the FI really helps your sweet sentiment to stand out. Top five of your cards in my book!! Absolutely love this. Bev

Barb Ghig said...

Oh Loll this is so beautiful. Shame we don't have snow here at Christmas time as I would surely buy THAT STAMP. Love Visible Image stamps - so artsy. Have never seen the ep you used so checked it out. Amazing stuff! Love how you finished with the sentiment - perfect.
