Stampin’ Up!® Wonderful Snowflakes Season’s Greetings

Although I am not quite ready for Christmas cards, I couldn’t resist using the Wonderful Snowflakes as part of my card for The Paper Players Color Challenge PP567.

Here is my card:

This is a Slim Line card. The card base measures 8 1/2 x 7 inches with a score line at 3 1/2 inches. The scalloped rectangle in the background is not a Stampin’ Up! product, but I hear tell that there are some Slim Line Dies in the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalog!

The Wonderful Snowflakes are iridescent! The greeting from the Christmas To Remember stamp set is embossed with Silver Emboss Powder. The embossed snowflakes behind the sentiment are from the Time of Giving stamp set. The ribbon is the White 1/4 inch Crinkled Seam Binding in the Stampin’ Up! 2021-22 Annual Catalog.

I added a lot of Bling! using the Rhinestone Basic Jewels. There are 16 rhinestones on this card!

I love to enter The Paper Player Challenges because I need to push myself to imagine and think outside of my usual modus operandi. I find that I create cards in a new and exciting way.

Voila! That is it for today! Thanks for stopping by. Stop by The Paper Players and see the other entries to the Color Challenge PP567 HERE

Have a most wonderful day!

Cardz4guyz Challenge # 262- Let It Snow

I really love the snow. Mostly because I live in Arizona and don’t have to deal with it unless I choose to go up to the mountain to go skiing. Most years our family will venture up into the White Mountains for a weekend of skiing. This year we will not be going due to the Pandemic and the fact that there is very little snow. Arizona is currently in a drought. However, I decided to create a nice snowy forest scene for the Let It Snow Challenge. For this card I used stamps from Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods, Very Versailles and Snowflake Wishes stamp sets.

The snowy scene I created uses 3 layers on a base of Shaded Spruce Card Stock (CS). The first layer is a Basic White CS stamped in Shaded Spruce ink with the large tree in the Winter Woods stamp set. The center tree is stamped at full strength and the two trees in the back are Stamped Off. The little snowflakes on this first layer are from Snowflake Wishes and are stamped in Balmy Blue ink. The inside of the card is also stamped in the large tree and small snowflakes along the right-hand edge.

The second layer is the retired Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper cut out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. This is adhered to the back of a Basic White CS cut with a larger Stitched Nested Labels Die.

The top layer is also Basic White CS, cut from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and is stamped with several different stamps from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set. The Stampin’ Up! ink colors are: Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight and Highland Heather. The sentiment is from the Very Versailles stamp set and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. The final touch is the 3 die-cut snowflakes in the Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper.
