Mission Impossible ~ Take 4!

 Hi friends!

Welcome to another edition of a hot mess card making,

where glue misbehaves and glitter flies all over!

These cards are actually last Mission Possible card

of the year but not THE LAST.

 We had a lot of fun this year and I think we're planning to continue 

in 2021 because my friends are crazy like me really creative!  

Jeanette sent us a gorgeous stencil from Taylored Expressions,

one I've eyed many a time but only drooled!

I didn't do this stencil justice - let me just toss that out there ...

but I had so. much. fun!

First, I thought it would be a creative idea to use

distress oxide inks, pixie-ish type spray and glitter

to make a sparkly, glittery snowflake.

My plan:

 use the colors on a woodland scene I stenciled this summer :)

For this card, I used Ranger's distress oxide inks in Tumbled Glass,

Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon and blended randomly.

For my first try, I thought I'd use pixie spray on top of the oxide ink

but it ended up feathering a little bit.

It actually kinda grew on me and reminded me 'snowflakes are unique.'

This stencil is larger than an A2 frame so I die cut a portion of it

and added a simple sentiment strip from C Z Designs.

For the second card, I wanted to make one in pink/purple tones 

AND try the stencil/glitter WITHOUT pixie spray -


This one is using Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar

and the difference is I spritzed it with a light mist of water 

and then added the glitter.

This was a super fun Mission Possible this time around,

and although my cards underwhelm, I had a lot of fun playing!

You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here on their blogs.

And if you head over to my Instagram, I added these to my reels.

I'm still learning and having a blast :)

And that's it from me today!

Thanks for stopping by ~

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)



  1. your snowflake cards are just beautiful!! I love the sentiment on the blue version and what I really like is the snow falling on your blog post! How cool and fun is that? I prefer that over the foot or more of snow in our forecast for tomorrow! YIKES!

  2. Oh what fun! Not one, but two absolutely stunning cards! I truly love them both, Kelly... my eye is really drawn to the pink/purple one because it's unique from colors I think we usually associate with snowflakes. It is awesome!
