Snowflakes Falling......

Hopefully not here anytime soon, but these Thinlits make cutting your own, so simple!!!


On this card I used a Dapper Denim card base with random stamped Snowflakes in Dapper Denim and the Sentiment in Momento Black ink.  I cut the Snowflake edge in Whisper White.  This Thinlit MUST be run thru the Big Shot parallel or long ways.  Roll back and forth several times to insure cutting thru the paper.  You will need to poke out the small pieces, but it is WORTH IT!!!


I used Tombow to add the Snowflakes, gluing the edge which the Silver Edge ribbon covers up.  And small dots of Tombow on the flakes.  A Rhinestone in each center adds the Sparkle!



This Real Red version is backed by the Merry Music Specialty paper.  Love how the Jingle Bells verses show thru the Snowflakes! More Rhinestones and a 1 inch Real Red Strip is stamped with smaller flakes and the Sentiment from the Wine set Half Full.

Snowflake Sentiments 2 ways.....2 cards and FREE SHIPPING TODAY!!!!

I have been busy this weekend making my final Christmas cards and trying to show some LOVE to the many GREAT stamp sets and Bundles in this years Holiday catalog.  Snowflake Sentiments is at the TOP of the list.  And just as the name implies, the Sentiments are the Star of this Bundle!!

 


Pretty Simple card, Whisper White card base with a Pattern of Designer paper from Christmas Around the World embossed with the BIG Snowflake folder.  The paper is cut 4 X 4 and the Snowflake fits perfectly!  I then cut Silver Snowflakes and a Swirl from Silver Foil with the matching Framelits in this Bundle.


And this Silver Edge ribbon makes this card.  A Glue Dot holds the Bow and Swirl in place!  Sentiment was stamped in Momento Black ink.

Card 2


This same Designer Paper makes a perfect background for my Version of Frosty the Snowman!  I used another pattern for the Scarf and Fringed the end with scissors.  A Black Hat and more Silver Snowflakes decorate this Snowman cut with a Simple Circle!!


Frosty's eyes came from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch in Basic Black.  The Nose I snipped out of Pumpkin Pie.  I used the Chalk Marker to accent the eyes.  And a Rhinestone in the center of each Silver Snowflake.  This sentiment really fits this Scarf wrapped Frosty!





Snowflake Sentiments Bundle  146052 Wood $54.00,  146053 Clear $46.75


I must admit, I overlooked these 2 Snowflakes when I used this Bundle the first time.  I guess the Square shape threw me off?  But these cut and release so easy, you will want to use them on EVERYTHING!!!

Painted Wreath

This Stamp set is so versatile!  I love this Wreath option and the simple fold to show off  the Holly Embossing folder.



Be Merry Designer paper has so many awesome patterns and really shows off the Holly embossing folder.  The Garden Green card base was scored at 4 1/4 and 2 1/8.  Fold in half and then fold back.  Adhere the embossed designer paper 5 1/4 X 1 5/8 to the card front. 


The Wreath was stamped in Wild Wasabi and then Garden Green inks.  Real Red dots added for Berries.  This stamp set in NOT just for Fall!!  I used part of a Boxwood Wreath glued down with Tombow and added some Real Red Tinsel Trim with  a glue dot.  Layering Circle Framelits cut out the Wreath.  The Wreath piece was then glued to the Front of the card.


The sentiment from Snowflake Sentiments was stamped so the Wreath would cover when the card is closed.

Three Kings

I purchased Wise Men from Afar, but have been so obsessed with Bethlehem, I am just getting this set inked up.  Love these trees!  These make such a great background and the Kings are meant to be heat embossed!!!  I chose Crumb Cake as my card base and Gold embossing.



Early Expresso for the Sentiment( a piece of thread on my stamp pad)ARRRGH!!!  Tone on Tone with Crumb Cake ink for a wispy effect.



And the Gold embossing....use your embossing buddy to keep the stray flecks from sticking to your paper!!  I am full of tips, just need to follow them!!

And here are some swaps using this stamp set:


Here is a swap featuring Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso, Whisper White and Gold Foil.  The Wise Men were embossed in Gold on Vellum.  I love how the Cherry Cobbler gives a rich glow!  Christmas Around the World Designer paper provide sa night sky panel.



No embossing on this card, but the Gold Foil and Merry Little Christmas Designer paper really accent the Square Frames used to cut the Three Wise men.
