I did double duty with this one too! I used our Playing in Paradise sketch and used our Featured Product Distress Inks for a really simple technique using Perfect Pearls...another jewel in the Ranger family of products. Here's what I came up with.
Accessories: Dazzles Snowflake 3-D Stickers (HOTP), Perfect Pearls Metallics (Ranger), Detail Silver embossing powder (Stampendous), Rhinestones (MAMBI), Circle/Scallop Circle & Labels 8 dies (Spellbinders), Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Chain ribbon (Webster's Pages), Scor Tape, Pop dots
Ok, the first thing I did was load all the little snowflake stamps from Technique Tuesday's Flurry set on to a 3" square acrylic block. Then I stamped the snowflakes in Pumice Stone Distress Ink across the entire navy panel. Since Distress Inks are really wet, they dry slower, so I grabbed my Perfect Pearls...in Pearl, and brushed it over all the snowflakes. The wet image of the snowflakes grabs the Perfect Pearls and sets it permanently, for a beautiful pearly shine. It's a little tough to catch shimmer and shine in a photograph, but here's a close up so you can see it a little better.

The white centre panel is cut with the Labels 8 Spellbinders die and then run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. It's popped up on 3-D foam dots and a length of sheer ribbon is tied around it. I zapped it quickly with my heat tool to give it that scrunchy look.
Then I started adding the Dazzles 3-D snowflakes. I just love these amazing little stickers. They have adhesive in the centre portion and the little branches of the snowflakes can be folded in so they pop up! I placed them around the white as per the sketch and added clear rhinestones to the centres. They are quite amazing aren't they!!
