Silver Snow

One of my stampin' friends, Jan, shared this idea with us last Saturday when the Stamp and Share group met.  I added some sparkle and embossing and I'm loving the results.  I kind of wish I'd embossed a circle around the snowflake, but it's too late now.  Maybe next time.

There's some Dazzling Details in the center of each of the embossed snowflakes.  I couldn't capture the sparkle, but at least this picture isn't as dark as the last couple of cards I posted.

Addicted to CAS #1  a brand new challenge.

The Paper Players brought to us by my friend LeAnne

Emboss the Edges!!! 

(I embossed the edges of those tiny tags with a VersaMarker and silver Embossing Powder.)

                    Anything goes!! Just make sure your project is CAS!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Petite Pairs
Ink: Versamarker
Paper:  Whisper White, Silver Glimmer
Other:  Snow Burst EF, Snowflake punch (retired), Jewelry Tag Punch, Silver EP, Dazzling Details, Silver Cord (from my stash.  I wish SU would bring that elastic cord back)

LuAnn asked how I did the label on Monday's card. The white label is cut with the Apothecary Accents die.  The Cajun Craze mat was cut with my paper snips after laying the die on the back of the paper and tracing around the outside of the die. Flip it over and it's ready to go.  I saw this card on Beverly's  Gott Heart Art blog and when I asked, she kindly emailed me her technique. 

Our sweet Emmy just admired this card as I'm posting it.  She liked all the sparkle.

I need to stop here and get some cuddling time in.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm so glad you came.

That silver paper has a wonderful sparkle and is just perfect peeking through the snowflake. I love the sparkle on the embossed part - great accent to the snowflake and all the white!

Bonnie, your snowflakes are beautiful with that sparkling paper.

We just returned home tonight...long trip. I am now trying to catch up on commenting. I've missed seeing all my blogging pals and making cards.
