The Snowflake Splendor suite (pages 36-38 of your Holiday Mini Catalogue) has so much to love! The photopolymer stamp set, which includes 17 layering snowflake stamps, will help you decorate any wintry card or project. The co-ordinating dies (bundled for a 10% savings) are beautiful enough to be used on their own for a no-stamping card. The stunning Designer Series Paper is full of snowy beauty in all shades of blue, and gorgeous watercolour washes on the reverse side. Then there’s the show-stopping Balmy Blue glimmer paper, the irresistible sparkle of the adhesive-backed blue gems, and the delicate shimmer of the iridescent ribbon. And don’t forget the Winter Snow embossing folder!
I’ve had so much fun creating with this suite, I just had to build a class around it. And so November’s Creativity to Go, my version of an online card class, features the Snowflake Wishes stamp set! Be sure to sign up by November 10th to receive the stamp set along with all the supplies, products, and tutorials to make five wonderful cards such as the ones below!
The Triple Cube Card is the first card I made with this suite. It started as a great way to show off the beautiful DSP, but then I started playing with layering the stamped and die-cut snowflakes, and I had WAY too much fun! You’ll see plenty more of these layered snowflakes decorating several of the cards below!
Next I tried out the Double Fan Fold card. (I’ll be teaching this one in an upcoming newsletter, so be sure to subscribe!) This is a gorgeous fold with lots of opportunity for embellishment, and it looks stunning from any angle.
These next few cards make good use of the stamps alone, without any die-cuts to distract or decorate. These simple stamping cards are none the less beautiful!
And then, of course, I wanted to play around with the reverse … lots of die-cutting and hardly any stamping.
Here’s a minimalist card that is striking in its simplicity.
In the cards below, I made good use of the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper to add gorgeous shimmer and sparkle.
Like the card above, the project below – perfect for holding a battery-operated tealight candle – uses the large snowflake ‘negative image’ die.
I loved playing with the Winter Snow embossing folder to add texture to the cards, as well.
And then I made a few fancy fold cards to let the beautiful Designer Series Paper really shine (along with those gorgeous layered snowflakes!) Here’s a centre easel card …
…. an epic fold card …
… a Centre Step Card ….
…. and a Double-Z fold card.
I also love the idea of playing with non-traditional, unexpected colours – so I had to try it out with this bundle!
Even with all of these gorgeous cards, I feel like there is so much I could do with this suite. It is so fun and easy to create with! If you’d like to join me and create beautiful cards with the “Snowflake Wishes” stamp set and some of the other products from the suite, be sure to sign up for Creativity to Go by November 10th!
