(2014 c11) GKD Life Is Good

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor today’s shinny snow scene I stamped with GDK stampset called Life is Good by Theresa Momber, they can be found at StampTV.   I stamped the house 2 times & Heat embossed with white EP and the third time I heat embossed with Black.

Just for the roof I used Liquid Applique by Marvy Uchida.  Before heating with my heat gun I sprinkled LuminArte Heavenly White powdered pigments and also a few sprinkles of a white shiny, long fibered flocking material.  Then I started heating from the back side to start with because the powders want to fly if blasted on the front to begin with, then turned  & finished “puffing” the Liquid Applique. I cut it out and glued to the top of the black embossed house that I had colored with Copics.

The third stamping was on my oval using white EP.  Then using an exacto knife I carefully cut around the snow covered shrubs in front of the house and slipped the colored house behind the slit made with the knife.  To finish I used glitter glue to highlight the snow in the yard.

I used striped paper and also sanded to bring out the stripes that are on the bottom of Spellbinders 3D M-Bossabilities Framed Labels 18. 

Finally I added 3 vintage buttons on the bottom, it killed me to remove them from the paper old paper card & I just realized, I didn’t even take a picture of them on their original store card!  Pooh!
