Hello! Today I’m sharing the second half of the panel I made with the new 6×9 Driven Snow stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. On November 2nd, I shared the first half, which you can check out HERE. This time, I used a different medium to get the awesome shine my card has.

I embossed the entire stencil with a white embossing paste on to Smooth Bristol Cardstock from Strathmore. After it dried, I cut it in half. For this panel, I decided to use Lindy’s Magical’s in Tainted Love Teal over the entire thing. So I tapped on some powder with a fan brush, then spritzed it generously with water, and added more powder where it was needed. Then I let it air dry.
Seriously, look at how pretty that is! I grabbed some teal vellum and heat embossed my sentiment in a frosty blue. The stamp I used is from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous’ Bold Tidings Tiny. I tore the vellum and stapled it on to my panel. Then I added a few opalescent sequins for more shine (because there’s just never enough), and mounted it all on to a white card base.
I love how the color from the Lindy’s Magicals get trapped around the edges of the embossed areas, which really highlights the stencil. This color is from a Halloween set, but it’s so perfect for Winter. I hope you’ll check out the full November release from A Colorful Life Designs.

This is gorgeous, Alison! Thank you for sharing with us. May I ask what embossing paste you used? The only thing I know to use is Versa Mark. Thanks in advance!
Hi Kathy! Thanks for your kind words. I used a really old embossing paste from Dreamweaver Stencils. It’s got a matte finish to it. I haven’t tried the Magicals with glossy paste yet. Altenew, The Crafters Workshop, and Ranger all have pastes that are currently available, but I haven’t used them myself.
Thanks for the info Alison! I’ll check into it.
Is it translucent embossing paste?
I used white. You can certainly give the translucent a try though! It’s fun to experiment.
