Throwback Thursday: Swirly Snowflakes

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today we are going to step back in time with one of my favorite “winter season” die sets … the Swirly Snowflakes!

At first glance these dies might look a little confusing or blah … but what they can create is something special.  Let me show you …

This is one of my favorites … Why? Because I can easily swap out the Christmas greeting for a “Birthday” … “Thinking of You” or whatever you choose. This is a great simple layout to use over and over again. Swap colors out too for a different look.

My next card highlights the snowflakes separately ….

Again … snowflakes for a December or January birthday are perfect. And what girl doesn’t like a little bling. You could do a light blue cardstock with silver snowflakes!

My next card shows the snowflakes with the same color pallet … Gold & Vanilla but has the snowflakes together…

You cannot get much simpler than this … simply die cut and assemble, and it’s so pretty.  My last card uses the “swirls” from the dies …

On this card you could easily switch out your greeting to a birthday, thank you, get well … since the greeting is the focal point on this card, and then embellish your card with the swirls and a snowflake. You wouldn’t even have to put the snowflake on there … and by swapping out designer papers, you could create endless beautiful cards … another perfect layout.

Thank you for joining me a checking out my showcase of Swirly Snowflakes cards. I hope you were inspired to create some cute cards if you already have it … or pick it up now for only $18.00 on the Clearance Rack.

Let me know if you have questions or if you’d like help with your order …

 Have a wonderful day


Throwback Thursday: Snowflake Sentiments

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing with you some of the cards I made last year from one of my favorite stamp sets, Snowflake Sentiments and the coordinating framelits; Swirly Snowflakes.  If you need some inspiration for Christmas cards this year, try one of these stunning cards … I have four to share with you today.

This card was created with Fresh Fig and Whisper White with a touch of Silver … oh so classy! You can see how sweetly the silver snowflakes fit into the die cut edgelit.  You can use any color pallet to create this card… the new Shaded Spruce would be beautiful.

The greeting was heat embossed with Silver emboss powder to coordinate with our Silver Foil paper. To add a touch of texture, I used the “Softly Falling” embossing folder.

My next card was cased from the talented fellow demonstrator – Mary Brown. I made my card using Very Vanilla instead of the Whisper White Mary used. I loved that Mary cut the snowflakes apart to create her card, so we did as well … it is too stunning not to share.

Cutting the snowflakes apart was a big hit, but how would you love to see the card with the design cut per the die? Well, that is what Chris did and I love the way the snowflakes look draped down from the top.

The last card I would like to share is a simple layout but oh so pretty …

I fell in love with the stamp set and coordinating dies, and now you know why.  I am thrilled that Stampin’ Up! put both the stamp set and dies in the annual catalog!!  So pretty and so many different looks you can create.

Thank you very much for coming along as we go back into the holiday archives and share some beautiful cards.

I hope you have a wonderful day ~
