Funky Fossil July/August Pre-Release Peeks - Introducing Filigree Flakes & Let It Snow Paper Pad

Are you ready for some chill? Well this peek at Funky Fossil's Filigree Flakes may just be the answer.

But as it's only July I felt the need to go off piste with my colours for this first card.

I used the stencil Abstract Bamboo Background to create a rainbow coloured background and then stamped and heat the flakes onto vellum. I coloured each one to match the background and popped them up onto foam pads.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Filigree Flakes
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Abstract Bamboo Background
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne, Versamark clear + WOW! opaque bright white embossing powder; Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry, peacock feathers, twisted citron
Vellum from my stash

My next card uses one of the fabulous papers from the new paper pad Let It Snow. A really gorgeous mix of non-traditional colours with some iconic Christmas patterns.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Filigree Flakes
Paper Funky Fossil, Let It Snow
Inks: Versamark clear + WOW! sparkling snow embossing powder
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched basic edges

I almost went with traditional colours for my next card but used some icy blues instead.

The background was created by smooshing the inks using an acrylic block. The flakes were stamped and heat embossed with a thick and funky embossing powder.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Filigree Flakes
Inks: Ranger distress, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch; Versamark clear + WOW! black magic embossing powder
Dies: Whimsy Stamps, Wavy Edgers; MFT Die-namics, stitched jumbo fishtail banner

I couldn't resist one last card in my favourite purples and went with a shaker window.

The greeting is  stamped and heat embossed onto acetate and is from another new stamp set in this release which will be featured on Friday of this week.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Filigree Flakes, Festive Phrases
Inks: Versamark clear + WOW! embossing powders - Sparkling Snow & Fairy Dust
Die: MFT Die-namics, Peek-a-boo Circle Window
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Acetate from my stash
Two down and three more to go before the final reveal and release on Saturday 1st August. I hope you'll drop by again tomorrow when it's still Christmas but in a very adorable and cute way.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
