Default How do you make snow?

Is there a product out there that you can use to make snow - on only part of a stamped image - So embossing is not what I am looking for - but just the 3 dimensional stuff on the edges of an image?

Another vote for Liquid Applique - the tip makes it easy to control.

I have some stuff called 'Crystal Snow'. It's basically like superfine glitter, but not sparkly. I used it on this card on the trim of Santa's coat & hat, tho it's hard to see in the photo:

I think I got it at JoAnn's with the glitters.

I like to use a product called Snow Writer, which I bought at Michaels. I've also bought it from ebay.

Well, usually there is really cold air and some moisture coming up from the Gulf, and when they mix you get snow here in the mid Atlantic!!! (sorry...)

I found a product called Aleene's Glitter Snow that I bought a few years ago (1997). I don't even know if they still make the stuff! LOL It was in DDs closet. It's not dried out so I'm gonna use that to make snow for my cards this year. It's kind of like spackle with sparkles in it. See how it goes.

I'm going to try this new (at least to me) stuff I found called "Vintage Glass Glitter". It is really glass flakes and looks a bit like crystallized sugar. It sparkles differently than regular glitter does and reminds me of snow when it is REALLY REALLY cold.
Not sure if there is anything that can recreate this kind of snow. It all fell overnight and by the time it was done there was almost 30" in less than 12hours.

I have heard of the Real "Glass Glitter"...It's beautiful, but be warned, it can cut you (or children) after it is on top of your project. It is real glass.
I have used Liquid Applique and love it. But I'm on the hunt for all the other goodies listed here too!

Comes across Lake Erie too & dumps lots here in NE Ohio! I use either liquid applique or snow writer.

Default Glass glitter

Don't you need to be careful using glass glitter? Not inhaling it or getting it on your skin or something? I shy away from it as I've heard it can be dangerous to use.

I use the 2 way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. If you tear your card stock in a gentle, hill-like curve and then glitter the cut edge, it looks very nice.

Default making snow

I love to add snow with a product called "Stickles" by Ranger. There are over 30 different absolutely yummy colors with at least 4-5 that would work as snow, including "Icicle".

Dazzling Diamonds for that sparkling look, for sure.

But if you are looking for making raised snow that has some loft to it, I use "PolyMark" Dimensional Fabric Paint. It is less than a buck at Wal-Mart and comes in a wide range of colors, metalics, pearls, glittery...for a one ounce bottle that has a very small opening for acurate detailing. It dries the way you put it on (keep the card/project level) and applies as close to the Liquid Applique as I have been able to find...and you can find it right near the acrylic paints in the craft area at WalMart. The orange is perfect for carrot noses, black for coal lumps, yellows for flower centers...use your imagination, this stuff is cheap and keeps for a long time!

The Souflee Gel pen in white would be a more precise way to apply white to the edge of an image.

I've used white flocking. You can build layers using dimensional glue.

You can also buy a jar of Snow-Tek from Michael's and use a lttle knife or something to add it to your cards. Very pretty and it looks like real snow. It has texture in it as well. Otherwise I use the Liquid Applique. Sometimes I use Puffy Embossing Powder.

I have tried to use white flocking, but somehow it looks more gray than white to me. I used Versa Mark and stamping bond to glue it on to the card. I wanted to cover bird house roofs, but I was not happy with the way it turned out. It looks to thin. Is there a way to put it on thicker and keep it white looking?

I am wondering if the white Dimensional Magic by Ranger would work? Has anyone tried it?
