What product(s) do you use for adding "snow" to your layouts and/or cards? I'm looking for something easy to apply, not messy, and with staying power.

Thanks.

I use the white Distress Stickles. I hate ALL mess, but this is the easiest to apply for me and for my cards I feel it really mimics snow and that ruffly white fluff stuff on winter coats that girls wear.

There was some snow stuff I bought from SU a couple years ago, it was sold in a tub & you put it on your card or LO then used your heat gun to poof it up. Don't know if they still sell it or not.

I've also used some stuff that was in a jar that was called snow, it was really thick and you used a spatula to put it on the page. I made the coolest LO with it that looked like a gingerbread house - it was the icing. It was sold by the art sutff & I will see if I can figure out the company and post back if I find it.

I have two Marvy Snow Pens. You use your heat gun to dry it and make it puffy!

I like opaque white heat embossing powder. Thanks to the peas, I use a coffee filter under the card to collect the powder, fold it and pour back into the jar. Less static electricity than any other method! And makes what could be a messy job pretty much NOT messy!

Good ideas... I'll have to see what I can find local or online. I think I'm going to stay away from anything that needs a spatula.. sounds kind of messy.

I'm going to be working with a 6 yo and a 3 yo. The easier and neater the better.

Well, I tried a few different things. Guess I have to go back to the store and try something else.

I bought a Snow Marker, but it doesn't really puff up enough to show on white cardstock.

I tried some embossing powder I have, but it's not opaque and didn't work well either.

Tried Stickles but the drying time is not going to work with the kids.

Round two coming up!

I use a white Souffle pen. It came in a pack with other colors of Souffle pens that I got at one of the big box stores. I scribble on some scrap paper first to get the ink going, then I either draw on dots or small "X" shapes to make snow. Make sure you draw slowly to let the ink get on the page. They may look clear or too thin at first, but they'll dry opaque and slightly puffy.

Here is a link to a card I made using the Souffle pen a few years ago:

Card

Not the greatest photo, but I think you'll get the idea. The snow in the background and the snow on the roof of the house and the ground were done with the Souffle pen.

There is some flocking stuff they use for Flowers..I thin the name of it is Flower Soft, and you just add some glue and add the flocking.

Personally, I just like to use a clear spica pen from Copic to add shimmer.

I used Puffy Paint by Tulip.
It is so easy to use and you can get it all craft stores and even Walmart.
I used it for snow with a little glitter sprinkled on before heating/puffing and also as fur trim on the Santa hat etc.

Huh?

Scoobers, I wish we were going to have snow. Once the kids move back to San Diego they'll never have snow unless they drive an hour or more to find it.

Katie, Puffy Paint is on today's shopping list, as well as the Souffle pen.

I think flocking would be too messy, and I'm really trying to avoid that.

Thanks everyone for your help. I've got six days to get this figured out!

There is a product by DecoArt called snow writer. You will probably find some at the craft store in their Christmas craft section. You can get it with or without glitter.

Here, I'll translate the crackalackish for you.

Try Muddle Puddles. I saw the beach sand so I'm sure they have snow. I have a chalking thing but can't remember the name. Have you tried cotton balls?

Stickles.

Actually the only recent layout I can think of where I wanted snow has some white paint and some snowflakes that were stamped, punched and heat embossed with sparkly white embossing powder.

Thanks! I have double vision, and reading is difficult enough as it is. It takes work, but I make out what is typed fairly well due to patterns and repeats in our language. Something like the above crackalackish is just too much for my eyes to decipher.

I passed on the Souffle pens at the store today. They are only sold in sets, and it was $22.99! Hopefully something else I picked up will do the trick. I may try those Souffle pens at a later date, though.
