Oh Pretty Snowflakes!

I’ve had some time to play with a few of my new toys lately.  I wanted to share a card that has many beautiful elements that I have fallen in love with.  The Holiday Mini has so many favorites in it for me.

Let’s start with the paper.  I asked for ONE thing to be in the mini catalog this year and I *kinda* got my wish.  I love FLOCK and they brought out this beautiful flocked designer paper.  I could sit and touch it all day.  I love how it feels and best yet, how it looks on creative projects.  The paper is called Christmas Cocoa Specialty (116770).

I stamped the Snowflakes using the Serene Snowflakes (115438) stamp set using Soft Suede ink and then applied the Icicle Rub Ons (116804) over the stamped snowflake.  The rub ons include 2 sheets: 1 sheet ea in silver and Whisper White.  I loved how the Whisper White looked over the Soft Suede.  For the focal point on the card I reversed what I had done on the card front and applied a Whisper White rub on to the Soft Suede cardstock then stamped a snowflake in Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut it out.  Using a dimensional, I popped it up onto the applied rub on.  It’s so three dimensional.  The Christmas Cocoa Specialty paper is on the base of the card.  It feels so pretty.  Here in Colorado, I am sure snowflakes are in our near future.  I am not ready for it, but I can stamp them.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 


Now to figure out what our Holiday weekend plans will be.  Russ and I have a few plans up our sleeves with the kids.  Time together is on tap.  He spent this week in Israel and was lucky enough to see Madonna in concert.  WOW!  He was super excited, I was super jealous.  I tried singing "Like a Virgin" on the phone and he promptly told me he had to go.  Not sure if it was my singing or…..  oh anyways… I was jealous. 

Have a safe and fabulous weekend!

  1. Seriously fell in love all over again. Love everything about this card from the stamp set, to the DSP, and even the rub ons.

  2. I love, love, love the card. I haven’t gotten my latest order and already have a list for the next one! Need to find a housekeeper and a cook, I don’t have time!

  3. Beautifully breath taking Kimberly.
    I love snowflakes and I don’t even mind the real thing.
    I love how you ruffed up the edges of the cardstock too.

  4. This is just STUNNING! I’m so glad I was browsing COTW – this definitely deserved to be featured. Beautiful colors (I so love mulitple ‘browns’ and white) and it looks fantastic with snowflakes!

  5. Stunning! You are a Rock Star in the stampin’ world! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family.
