Soft Snowflakes & Blending Brushes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a beautiful card that was quick and easy to create using the beautiful Snowflake Specialty Vellum, today I’m sharing one with the flocked snowflakes and blending brushes.

Here is a close up of the stunning Snowflake Specialty Vellum …. three sheets have iridescent patterns and three are flocked in white.

The flocked paper is so elegant and soft and is beautiful in white, but I wanted to give it a special touch, so I brought out my blending brush and used the soft pastel color; Fresh Freesia.

The blending brush leaves a soft hue of color on the vellum but the flocked snowflakes grab a little more so you get a beautiful two tone effect. This technique will be a favorite for those that enjoy a more “non-traditional” card.

The sentiment for today’s card also uses the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set …. and like I said yesterday, if you do not have this amazing stamp set in your collection, you are going to want to add it to your collection.

The Very Best Occasions Stamp set is part of a bundle which includes the Very Best Trio punch. That is what gave my greeting the cute edges you see … with a quick push of the punch. To complete my card I added the Silver Metallic Edge ribbon. Imagine creating these pretty cards in any of your favorite colors … oh yes!

Thank you for stopping by today…. Hope yours is a good one.

Here is the list of ingredients I used for today’s beautifully quick & simple card ….

Simply Sunday: A Little More Sparkle

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick & easy and very pretty Christmas card that will add a Little More Sparkle and Shine into the lives of your friends and family when they receive this handmade card from you this holiday season.

Just some cardstock, the beautiful Snowflake Specialty Vellum, the Very Best Occasions stamp set, a punch and your ink (oh yes, I also used the new Metallic Woven Ribbon) and you can create a stack of beautiful cards.

Let’s being with the stunning Snowflake Specialty Vellum ….

You’ll add a touch of elegance to your winter crafts and creations with the Snowflake 12″ x 12″ Specialty Vellum. This unique paper includes three different snowflake designs in white vellum and iridescent foil—that’s six different papers to get creative with!

We got that professional touch with ease by layering the snowflake vellum on our Night of Navy card front and backed by the Basic White so that the iridescent snowflakes were the highlight of the card …

The sentiment is so fun and fitting for the times, and is perfect for our handmade cards!! If you do not have this amazing stamp set in your collection, you are going to want to add it before it goes away!

If you’re looking for a stamp set that has heartfelt sentiments for just about everything, then you need the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set. These 12 versatile sentiments celebrate the Christmas season, express gratitude for family and friendships, share positive and uplifting messages, and so much more. Whether you need a simple, “With Comfort & Love,” or an upbeat, “You’re the best ever!” this stamp set has you covered.

My sentiment is stamped in the coordinating Night of Navy to match my cardbase and punched out with one of my favorites … the Label Me Lovely punch. Add some adhesive to the back and then create a little whimsy and texture by running the Metallic Ribbon back and forth before mounting it onto your card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Quick … Sparkly … and easy to recreate for your friends and family. I hope you enjoyed today’s card sample … the holiday season can be stressful, I don’t want your cardmaking to be.

I ❤ Simple & Beautiful. Thank you for joining me today.
