Snowflake Soiree

Oh my…Thanksgiving is over, Black Friday (and the major shopping frenzy) is done so now it is time to get down to the really important thing…participating in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!  WOOO HOOO!!!  hehehehehe.

We have a fun wintery (or could easily be spring) color challenge for you!  I decided to go with a snowflake theme since we have occasionally had some cold days around here.

The base of my card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I took another piece of Whisper White, stamped the largest snowflake in Baja Breeze then the medium on in Wisteria Wonder, wrapped some Wisteria Wonder/Whisper White Baker’s Twine around it and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped Merry in Baja Breeze, cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits, sponged with Wisteria Wonder and added to the card front using dimensionals.  I cut the medium snowflake from Silver Glimmer, added a 1/2″ Baja Breeze Circle then added a Wisteria Wonder Printed Designer Brad.  The snowflake was added to the card front using a dimensional to finish it off.

Set(s): Snowflake Soiree
Paper: Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder
Other: Snow Flurry Die, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Whisper White/Wisteria Wonder Baker’s Twine, 1/2″ Circle Punch, Dimensionals

WOW…we have come to the end of our VERY FIRST EDITION of Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions!  We’d like to thank all of the wonderful people who joined us for this fun edition and a HUGE THANKS to our FANTASTIC designers – Elizabeth Price, Debbie Henderson, and Deb Currier!  You ladies are wonderful!

As in the past two weeks, the cards we share can only be seen if you are a subscriber but on Saturdays we share a small favor that goes along with the set we used for our cards.  I used Snowflake Soiree…I just LOVE snowflakes!  And here is my quick and easy favor.

The base if the Fancy Favor die.  I just LOVE this die…such a nice size!  I decided to use a ‘topper’ for my favor so took a piece of vellum cardstock and embossed the larger snowflake in white on one side, TURNED IT OVER and embossed the smaller snowflake in silver on the other side…oh…such a cool look!  I then cut it our using the Apothecary Accents Framelits.  I wrapped this over the top of the box (it is shorter on the back than on the front) and secured at the top using Silver Brads.  Next I stamped Merry using Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White, cut out with an Apothecary Accents framelit, added a Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Snowflake (with a 3/4” Silver Glimmer circle) behind the tag, layered onto a Silver Glimmer strip and added to the topper to finish it off.

Just a VERY QUICK and easy card for the CAS challenge on SCS today.  The challenge was to do a single layer collage.  I LOVE CAS but this is a difficult one for me.  I decided to do acrylic block stamping and then use some snowflakes (in honor of the FIRST posting of cards on Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions!  Yep…now’s a good time to join…just check out the info on the right and sign up today!

Okay…back to the card.  The base of the card is Whisper White.  I inked up the acrylic block with Pink Pirouette then sponged around the edges in Primrose Petals.  I stamped the largest snowflake in Not Quite Navy (okay…MEANT to do Baja Breeze…oops…wrong pad but liked it!), the medium snowflake in Primrose Petals, the small snowflakes in Cherry Cobbler and Merry in Not Quite Navy (DID mean to do that color!)  To add ‘just a little extra’ I added some Basic Rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes and then just a couple random ones.

Here’s a secret about me…I LOVE pink snowflakes!  No really…when going to make snowflakes, I almost always go for PINK…who knows why but I just love that look.  The base of the card is Pink Pirourette, I took a piece of Whisper White and added to the card to the cardbase using dimensionals.  I cut out banners from Silver Glimmer, Pink Pirouette Dotted Paper and Whisper White and added to the panel.  Next I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped snowflakes in Pink Pirourette.  I stamped Merry in Veramark and Silver Embossing Powder.  I did the medium snowflake in Silver Glimmer and added using a dimensional, then the small in Pink Pirouette, added a white brad to the center then to the medium snowflake using dimensionals.  This panel is added using dimensionals.

TEXTURES…okay…I started this out by making my own ‘textures’ on the Midnight Muse card base.  I began with some ‘direct to paper’ using Night of Navy ink, then stamped a snowflake using Midnight Muse ink and then stamped another snowflake using the new Illuminate pad.  I shows up okay in the photo but it is sooooooo coool in real life!  Really looks like a lot of texture.  Next I took a piece of Shimmery White, ran it through the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder (more texture) and added to the card front.  The largest snowflake is Silver Glimmer (still another textured), then two Shimmery White medium snowflakes (one run through the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder – still more texture), a 1/2″ Midnight Muse circle and the a Silver Glimmer Brad.  Each layer is added using a dimensional adding even more texture to the card.  I stamped the word Merry using Versamark and silver embossed.  I love how heat embossing is still another cool texture.  I cut this would using the one framelit from the Apothecary Accents set.  This is added using dimensionals.
