Merry Snowflakes

Hello Friends,

Wow, that was a close one... I almost didn't make the deadline for some challenges. Today I am playing with Hand Stamped Sentiments and Stampin' Royalty.

This snowflake set from Stampin' Up' is one of my favorites.
I enjoy its intricate detail and variety of design.

The light gray border suits the color palette from
Stampin' Royalty so nicely. Plus, you will see in the following photos
a silver sheen is also used for a border.


Below/Left: You can see the silver sheen border with a snowflake to match. The silver is the perfect touch. Bottom/Right: A detail of the banner and snowflake. I tried to keep the same colors that were found in the background. 


Hand Stamped Sentiments: Challenge #259
Stampin' Royalty: #SR360


I really like the all-over-stamping technique. It provides a randomness and it is just down right fun. However, I do have a method to my madness. When I do this technique, I like to stamp a much bigger section of the paper and then crop the area that I like best. It seems to work well for me and maybe it will for you too.

So once again thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet. We will see you soon. Until then, take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna

What a fun color combo for a snowflake card! I love it! The colors are jolly but the images are kinda elegant. It all makes for a super intersting card! Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
