Hello! This is my third project for SCS Creative Crew. We had to do a project that used a technique and the theme was winter wonderland. I immediately thought of the dryer sheet technique because it looks just like snow, especially when you add the dazzling diamonds to it.
To do this technique you will first need to stamp your images and do any coloring, if there is any on your project. On my project I stamped my images from the Seasonal Chums stamp set and also used the snowflakes from the Tags and Trimmings. The snowflakes are really hard to see in the picture as I stamped them with Soft Sky ink. Next time I think I would use Marina Mist and if that was too dark, then stamp it off first. In person you can see the snowflakes. I used markers to color in the snowmen.
You will then cover your paper with adhesive, you can use spray adhesive, liquid glue or a glue stick. You will need a used dryer sheet to place on top of your glue. Smooth out all of the wrinkles and trim off the excess. This is the fun part now, sprinkle it with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and shake off the excess. It sparkles like the snow! I adhered this to a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock with the 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon in Soft Sky around it. When all of that is together than attach it to your card base.
To make this project you will need the following products:
Soft Sky Cardstock #131203
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Melon Mambo Cardstock #115320

Here is a close up of the snowmen and you can see the snowflakes better in this picture.
Aren't they so cute? I just love snowmen!

I know this blog post is coming out late today, but I do have a very good reason why. I have been in bed since Saturday afternoon with the most severe case of a stomach virus that I have ever had in my life. I was physically sick for almost 30 hours. I didn't even know that was possible! On Monday I was feeling better and was going to go back to work on Tuesday. That didn't happen as my body had other plans for me. Can you believe I ended up getting sick again. I guess my body really liked the virus, or the virus was really mad at my body.
Today, 5 days later, I finally feel human, but am extremely weak. Who knew that just going down a flight of stairs would wear you out to the point you have to sit down. Needless to say, I am not working today as I wouldn't have the energy to take care of children and I know I couldn't pick up my baby. So, I am sitting here in my recliner trying to get my energy back, so I can work tomorrow.
I always try to find the good in something and in this the only thing I can think of is the weight loss. Through all of this I have lost 10 pounds, which I am happy about, but not the way I would like to do it though.
Thank you for stopping by today and being patient with me. I hope everyone has a great day and stay healthy!
