Snowflake Showcase Parade of Cards

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

At times during the month I have shared with you several beautiful cards from our Snowflake Showcase made with the stamp sets and dies.  I’ve loved working with this showcase of products and I’m sharing all of them with you today.   *Today is also the last day your can purchase any items in this product suite.

Love this card because I created it with the left overs … 

 

Don’t you just love the red card … it reminds me of a sweater! (lol … don’t ask me why?) The cute floral card was created with the Happiness Surrounds stamp set. And count me in for the watercolor background with the tree!!

 

Another from the Happiness Surrounds stamp set that is truly delightful and fun. The colors just pop!

 

Simple and Elegant in Very Vanilla and Gold … sheer Christmas.

 

This is my friends Margarete’s card … so beautiful and airy. I just love it and so happy she allowed me to share it with you.

 

This was one of my favorite cards that I designed for our  2018 Holiday Stamping Retreat … This is the card that generated the “scraps” that I used on the card at the beginning of the “parade of cards” …

 

Could not make a card sample without using the snowflake swoosh … it is one of the main reasons I had to have this die set (and coordinating stamp sets). 

 

Another card created with the Happiness Surround’s stamp set (lol … spelled it wrong on my card) This one was fun, we made it in my Advanced Stamparatus Class but it was easy to make!!

 

I could not let this day go by without sharing all these lovely cards with all of you who have purchased this showcase of products, and to remind everyone that today is the last day, so if you love it … don’t let it go.  It is gone for good after midnight tonight.


Thank you for joining me for my Snowflake Showcase Parade of Cards.  Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need help placing your order.

Have a wonderful day … let’s kick off the weekend right!

Here are the products available in the Snowflake Showcase ….

 

 

It’s Your Day!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a special card that I created using the second of the two stamp sets offered in the Snowflake Showcase

The stamp set is the Happiness Surrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set. This set also coordinates with the Snowfall Thinlits Dies.

For my card today I’m using a technique called the “Wreath” or “In the Round” technique. I’m not really showcasing that today … I am working on a video to show how this is done, and it is done using the Stamparatus. This is the card we made at my Advanced Stamparatus Class …

The background was embossed with the “Layered Leaves” Dynamic embossing folder.  This is one of my favorites because it goes with so many different stampin’ styles.

The floral wreath was done in Pink Pirouette and Rich Razzleberry with a touch of Pear Pizzazz … these colors were also used in my cardstock layers.  We used a template created to make our wreath and with the Stamparatus the flowers are inked and stamped in perfect placement.

Each of the flowers has a Rhinestone but to jazz it up we colored the rhinestones to match the colors we used, but put the opposite colors on the flower … so light on dark and dark on light.

Greeting is also included in the stamp set and was simply stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White and was punched with our circle punches.

With the use of the Stamparatus … this card is super simple to make. I’m hoping to have a video for your soon. Thanks for hanging out with me today.

Enjoy your day today ~

Peace On Earth Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you the second reason why I had to have the Snowflake Showcase …

If you’re looking for something a little different and that will take that ordinary “snowflake” up a notch, then you too will “melt” over this combination. Yesterday (and the day before) I shared cards that featured the big so today I want to bring back the tree, and the die that turned my head.

WOW … this pretty card was done in the new Soft Seafoam and white – simple. Do you see the “swoosh” of snowflakes? That is one cut with this die … I love this unique shape! I cut this from Vellumn cardstock so you get a soft look.

Each snowflake was highlighted with a rhinestone gem except the large one which I used the snowflake trinket.

This simple yet pretty card could be done in any color and the snowflake swoosh is the centerpiece of the card.  This stamp set and die are only available for a few more days, and then it will be gone.

I hope you enjoyed todays card, I will be back tomorrow featuring the second stamp set in the Snowflake Showcase.

Thanks for dropping in …

Enjoy your day.

A Blizzard of Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I see you made it through Monday!! lol  Me too … now we can get on with the rest of the week, and another Snowflake card!!

I have to admit that when I first saw this come out, I thought, another snowflake stamp set??? But WOW … this is so different from the others, first there is the cool stamp that sprinkles down the snowflakes! Let me show you …

See how my Tranquil Tide snowflakes gently fall from the top of the Pool Party cardstock? That is the stamp … nothing fancy from me!! I just fell in love with this (the other reason I bought it will be featured on tomorrows card).

There is nothing lacking on the beautiful snowflake die either, especially when its cut from the new “Sparkle” Glimmer paper. If you thought the Dazzling Diamonds that retired last year was pretty … wait till you see this!

The little snowflake is cut with the White Velveteen paper (Sold Out) and backed with the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper and topped off with a Clear Faceted Gem. If the layering of snowflakes didn’t add enough texture to my card … I added the Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon as well.

The greeting is included in the Snow is Glistening Stamp set and is stamped in Tranquil Tide.  Don’t you just love this color combination!! Hope you enjoyed my Snowflake Card and that it “melts” your heart!

Thank you for dropping in for a visit today!

Have a good day ~

Guest Stamper: Margrethe Hooper

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend, got your shopping done or started and maybe a few decorations hung. I worked extra hours, enjoyed an nice Thanksgiving dinner and had some well needed downtime and for all of it, I am grateful.

Today I have a beautiful card to share with you that was created by my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator; Margrethe Larsen Hooper. We found each other on-line … Pinterest to be exact, and Stampin’ Up! has made us sisters!

We finally got to meet in person a few weeks ago at the 30th Anniversary Stampin’ Up! OnStage event and it was so much fun to hang out together!

Margrethe’s card was made using the Snowflake Showcase which I will be featuring all week long. This beautiful product suite is only available through then end of November, and when I saw Margrethe’s gorgeous card, I asked if she would allow me to share it on my blog …

I really can’t resist this snowflake … it is so beautiful, and Margrethe’s color combinations and designer paper really bring it to life. The Linen thread and the Subtle textured embossing folder gives the card an organic feel, while the pretty Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle added a touch of elegance.

I hope you enjoyed Margrethe’s card as much as I did… such a beautiful combination of color and textures and it truly highlights the Snowflake Showcase products.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will continue sharing cards from this product suite.

Have a marvelous Monday!!

Simply Sunday: Snow is Glistening

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Ahhh … we really do enjoy life on a much simpler note don’t we? And why not, that gives us more time to do the things we really enjoy. I do enjoy my stamping but I still like simple, and pretty … and today I have both for you in one card.

Today’s card features the Snow is Glistening stamp set, which is only limited until the end of the month, and I will be showing your more cards in the next few days.

Today’s card is fully embossed in gold … a simple technique that creates stunning results. You can get your glam on and texture in one shot.  The back piece, the tree and the greeting are all embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and the heat gun.

  1. Rub your cardstock with the Embossing Buddy. This will absorb any oils left by your fingers, and eliminate static. Both of these can hold unwanted embossing powder onto your cardstock
  2. Ink up desired image (the tree) with VersaMark™ and stamp onto your cardstock.
  3. Sprinkle your embossing powder over the VersaMark™ ink, and tap off excess embossing powder.
  4. With the heat gun, hold the gun over the embossing powder until the dull embossing powder turns into a beautiful gold.

The embossed pieces have the Gold Foil cardstock as a mat which adds a little more shine and elegance to your card. I’m using Very Vanilla cardstock with my gold today.

The greeting was also embossed in gold and then punched out with the circle punch and coordinating scallop punch. A few Stampin’ Dimensionals to add some added dimension and your card is complete.

If you love the simple elegance of this card, then this is the technique for you. Don’t get me wrong, it’s beautiful stamped in various colors as well, but the gold is stunning.

Thank you for joining me today, and I hope you stop back as I will be sharing more cards with the Snowflake Showcase product suite.

Enjoy your Sunday ~

Christmas Solutions: All Is Bright!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and celebrated it the way you like!! We each have our own traditions which we cherish and that is OK!!

Today I have two Christmas cards to share with you. They were created with the All is Bright product suite for my Holiday Stamping Retreat. Both cards also highlight the beautiful “All is Bright” Designer Series paper. Our Designer paper is on Sale through Midnight tonight …

Tomorrow the stamp sets and kits will go on Sale with a 10% savings.  Let’s get to our first card …

Are you wanting to make Hand Stamped Christmas Cards this year but feel a bit overwhelmed?  This sweet -n- simple card was created with the “All is Bright” designer paper and the “Merry Christmas to All” stamp set.  This stamp set also has a coordinating die.  We jazzed it up just a bit with a bow and the new Sprig punch from the Holiday catalog… it looks good without it, or how about a shimmery heart – that would be perfect!!

When you need to make quick -n- simple cards …. beautiful designer paper and a good greetings stamp set is the way to go and the “All is Bright” designer paper and “Merry Christmas to All” stamp set is the answer.

What is amazing about the “All is Bright” designer paper is the beauty on one side and the fun on the other! On my next card I am still using the “All is Bright” designer paper … both patterns used come from just flipping the gorgeous paper over.


What reminds you of Christmas? When I was little we had a tree with these Old Fashioned light bulbs so naturally I was drawn to this pattern. Are you lovin’ the bulbs too?

I used the stars as my backdrop and then added the Christmas lights for a fun and festive element to the card, and they really pull the eye to the card (which just means they are so stinkin’ cute!).

And if you’re loving these little Christmas bulbs then the “Making Christmas Bright” is on your shopping list, or you have it already.  Where you drawn to the combination of Stars and Bulbs like I was?? Oh my gosh, I thought this was such a fun and unique stamp set … one we haven’t seen yet.   Here’s another (I shared earlier) …

and the cute little door tags from my Holiday Retreat could easily be turned into a card … just put a greeting where I have my guests name!

Such a fun, fun stamp set and coordinating designer paper.  The designer papers are on sale today, stamp sets tomorrow … so choose your larger savings. If you need help or have questions let me know.

Thank you for spending part of your Saturday with me. I hope you enjoyed the card shares.  I will be back tomorrow with my Simply Sunday.

Have a wonderful day ~
