Freshly Made Snowflakes?

Hey there! I have had such a stamping slump lately. I have tried to stamp and just haven't been able to make anything that I was happy with. I know this is pretty common (it actually happens to me more often than I would like) so I just kept trying. My efforts finally paid off this morning. I loved the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week, so I decided to give it a try.

I ordered the Snowflake Soiree stamp set and the Snow Flurry die several weeks ago, but I hadn't had a chance to play with them yet. I pulled them out this morning and came up with this...


Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Snowflake Soiree, Greetings of the Season
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Brushed Silver, Whisper White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Illuminate
Accessories: Big Shot, Snow Flurry die, Scallop Border punch, Large Pearl, homemade shimmer spray, glue dots

This is a fairly simple card to make. I think this will definitely be one of the contenders for a spot in my upcoming Christmas buffets. It is really just a little stamping, some layering, and then a finishing spritz with shimmer spray. In real life, this card is very sparkly. I really like using non-traditional colors for Christmas cards. Red and green has its place for sure, but who doesn't love a rich purple Christmas card too?

Here is the sketch. Check it out and play along!


Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Purple Christmas cards are right up my alley - especially if they look as great as this! The snowflakes are fantastic! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love it. I'm a demonstrator. I ended up ordering the die and stamp set after seeing your card. This will probably be my main X-mas card this year. Thanks so much for sharing it.
