I thought I was getting a little flaky in this pandemic, but when I review the cards I've been making recently, it was confirmed. I seem to be concentrating quite a lot on snowflakes this season!
Stampin' Up!'s lovely suite, Snowflake Splendor, has some wonderful snowflake related tools to use.
When the catalog was first released, I purchased the bundle on page 37 of the Mini Catalog, which included the So Many Snowflakes dies as well as the Snowflake Wishes stamp set.
I also got my greedy little fingers on the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, which you can enjoy on the card in this Snowflake Wishes post. The snowflakes on that card were die cut from that paper with a couple of the dies.
For this card, I just couldn't resist the temptation to create a multicolored snowstorm!
To do that, I die cut some of the snowflakes from a piece of scrap cardstock, and used the negative space created from this die cutting as stencils. I moved my "stencils" all over a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock, using Sponge Daubers to add the snowflakes in three colors of ink, Pretty Peacock, Pear Pizzazz and Melon Mambo. I know, the green and bright pink were weird choices. But I love the way the colors all look together.
Once the snowflakes were stenciled, I took another of the stamps from the set and stamped mini snowflakes amidst the larger ones, this time in Pear Pizzazz.
