Sparkling Snowflakes

I love snow and hope we'll see some here this winter.  As I'm writing this, we are in short sleeves.  But it will be cold again in a couple of days.  North Carolina is like that in the Fall.


I had 2 classes last week with 15 lovely ladies.  We made a card with this stacked snowflake.

I had some extra kits that I decided to make up with different layouts.

I believe the snowflakes were multiplying.

You'll be seeing more of these snowflakes in the future.

Hope you like them!

CAS(E) this Sketch provided the layout for this one.  Here's the sketch



And here's another for last week's Queen for the Day, Susie Nelson.  When I saw this card, I saw a snowflake.  But then I've been seeing a lot of snowflakes.  LOL.

Susie has and extensive gallery and so much inspiration there.



All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe (card 1)
Paper:  White (Pip), Island Indigo, Silver Glimmer, Whisper White
Other:  Kars Snowflake EF (retired), Large Snowflake (Impression Obsession), Medium Snowflake (Snow Flurry Bigz die (retired)), Small Snowflake (Impression Obsession), Large Rhinestone Basic Jewel

Card Recipe (card 2)
Same as above with Stitched Mat Rectangles (Lil Inker) and a punched circle of Glimmer paper for the center.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

Beautiful! I love the embossed background. And I had a chuckle when I read about the snowflakes multiplying. We lived in Michigan for many years and I can tell you that yes, snowflakes do indeed multiply! :)

This is a lovely card Bonnie...the snowflakes are beautiful!

Shirley said...

They are both lovely, Bonnie! I love the green against the white and the darker green, the silver, and the dew drop is so lovely with the whole design!

Shirley said...

And so I got so carried away with the first I forgot to comment on your beautiful second card. Looks like blue and white with the silver all gives a gorgeous effect!!

Bonnie, I got behind on visitin' once again, so it's a real special treat to have a minute to pop in this evening and enjoy this beauty. Really loved the sparkle snowflake with the solid behind it. Very dramatic. Great color combo too. We had one day in the 70's, then cooler next day, and then drearies & rain Thurs & today. Scramblin' to get ready to head south on Sunday, and got an afternoon class tomorrow. So trying to get all the house chores & bill paying ducks in a row. Take care, TFS & Happy Thanksgiving.
