Shimmery Silver Snowflake Card

This card is the result of a crafty session where I just wanted to make so backgrounds with my stamping stash. For the base I used Shimmery White Cardstock as this is my favourite to use when doing ink blending.  I chose Seaside Spray and Blushing Bride for my background as  I was going for a subtle look, possibly Balmy Blue would have been better for a subtle look. I like the almost stormy look which Seaside Spray has given to the card.

For some more shimmer to the background I used the snowflake stamp from Free Skate and stamped it all over my background in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink, now when you move the card in the light you get the shimmer from the snowflakes.

To finish my card I added a length of Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon across the middle of the card to add even more silver shimmer and then stamped the “Christmas Greetings” stamp from  Greatest Part of Christmas in Silvery Shimmer Delicata Ink onto some oval matts cut from the Layering Oval Dies.

As a final touch I added some silver foil snowflakes cut from the Christmas Layers dies for a last bit of silver. I love how this card turned out, it reminds me of the sparkle left on freshly fallen snow.

Three Little Elves Card

How adorable are these cute little Elves, can you just imagine all the mischief they might get up to when we’re not watching. I wanted to go for a non traditional colour scheme so chose Seasside Spray, Mint Macaron and Flirty Flamingo to add to the cute factor.

Stampin’ Blends, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and a little fussy cutting have really brought the little eleves to life.  I didn’t think the card needed much else so added a simple stamped snowflake background and a strip of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon highlights the sparkle in the glitter.
