This evening I'm sitting here waiting for the snow that's been promised all week. We've ended up with just a few smatterings, but I think we'll get a little white blanket tonight. Living in Florida, I never had much use for winter-themed stamp sets. As you can imagine, I embrace them fully now, and love creating cards that evoke the dreamy parts of winter in Minnesota.
Last week my daughter and I traveled to Orlando, Florida for the 30th Anniversary Stampin' Up! celebration known as OnStage Live. I learned new techniques, swapped and bonded with my fellow demonstrators. I took lots of pictures (I promise!) and will share them tomorrow on this blog!
Tonight my fellow DoStamper Stars are sharing some cards from the limited Snowflake Showcase products, available now through the end of the month.
The stamp sets are lovely, and Happiness Surrounds will work year round. The star of the show though are the Snowfall Thinlets
. Check out the picture, but you get a selection of detailed snowflake images in a variety of sizes.
The pink card below was created by cutting a piece of vellum to 4 x 5 1/4 and stamping it randomly with a snowflake stamp using white craft ink. You could also stamp in versamark and heat emboss with white embossing powder. I sewed it onto Blushing Bride cardstock directly, because I don't like adhesive showing, but you can easily skip this step and apply some SNAIL adhesive to attach it to the cardstock. The flourish was cut with our awesome silver foil paper and attached with dimensionals.
Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad
This card features Fresh Fig Night of Navy and gold foil highlights and heat embossing. The snowflakes cut easily on the gold paper, and I randomly heat embossed gold embossing powder and versamark using the background snow stamp from the Snow is Glistening set.
