Snowfall

This is my newest holiday stamp set "Snowfall". There's so much you can do with it. I played around a little last night and here's a couple cards I made.

This first card uses chocolate chip and sky blue card stock. The snowflakes are stamped in close to cocoa and sky blue. It's hard to tell without enlarging the photo, the sky blue snowflakes were embossed using versa mark and iridescent ice embossing powder. I added a blue sheer ribbon with a little added silver cord.

A helpful hint. To line up the snowflakes to emboss them I used the stamp-a-ma-jig..

This 2nd card uses sky blue and whisper white card stock. I dry embossed the white background card stock using my cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder. I then sponged a little sky blue over the snowflakes to make them pop. The snowflakes were stamped with sky blue and then I added the 'agate' glitter by Martha Stewart. The greeny blue makes it pop. You can't see it here but around the snowflake circle is stamped Happy Holidays from the riveting stamp set in Sky Blue. I added the snowflake brad and the white braided ribbon (which I pulled apart to make it wispy)..

Four more holiday cards in the basket... Thanks to Michelle's hint of the day I always make 2 cards when I do them. It's just as fast and as easy to do 2 as it is 1 and this way I use the whole sheet of card stock.

I love both cards but I think the 2nd one is my favorite. Great job. The colors are so pretty. I need to take the advice and make two at a time also - great idea :)

Very pretty cards; I love snowflakes. I especially like the second card. Thanks for letting me know about the Martha Stewart glitter; I like the look of this with the soft sky.
