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!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I love your color choices and those snowflakes are just lovely. Thanks for playing along with this week's sketch!


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.
