Christmas Is Coming

Ornamental Pine is such a classic stamp set. That must be why I like it so much. I'm a classic kinda girl ya know? I love putting different effects to simulate snow on the pinecones and branches. I've used the splotches on the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set with white embossing powder, and Dazzling Details. I've even used puffy paint stuff with my heat tool. It is a pen called 'Snow Marker' from Marvy Uchida. I got it at a scrapbook store while traveling. To make these pinecones snowy, I prefer white embossing powder. How to apply that to the negative spaces on the stamped pinecone was a challenge. I tried various markers, but they all dried before I could get the embossing powder on. I could not find the embossing pen I used to have, but I looked on another shelf and spotted a bottle of embossing ink. Aha! I grabbed a tiny paint brush, applied ink to the negative spaces, grabbed my tweezers, dipped it in my box of white embossing powder and fired up the heat tool. SUCESS!
