I have been a part of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team for three wonderful years (2020, 2021, 2022) and have made 36 Artisan Monthly Projects, 8 Corporate Posts for the Stampin’ Up! Facebook Page, 9 Tip and Technique posts, and 12 other special projects shared on Instagram. This post today will be me last official Stampin’ Up! project!! I can’t say I’m all that sad about it because it has been a lot of work for the last three years and I’m looking forward to exploring and taking my card making in new directions.
For this last post, I am sharing a pretty, winter stamp and die set, The Joyful Flurry Bundle.
Since I have been making lots of Christmas cards in traditional red and green colours, I decided to use purples and blues to create these wintery cards.
For the first card, I used several shades of purple: the card base is Highland Heather with dots of Gorgeous Grape stamped all over, the snowflake and sentiment were also stamped in Gorgeous Grape, and the background glitter had shades of purple added to it with a blending brush. I love how some of the dies in the Frosted Flurry Dies set only partially cut out snowflakes. I used one on the Glimmer Paper and raised the edges to give the snowflake some dimension.
QUICK TIP: To add subtle colour to the White Glimmer Paper, use a blending brush apply different colours. I used Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia, and a touch of Mint Macaron.
I used those same three colours to add a diagonal blend to the background of the second card! I then stamped the snowflakes with VersaMark and used White Embossing Powder to really make them stand out. This card also featured a purple snowflake ornament and Snowy White Velvet snowflakes.
QUICK TIP: Use the small greeting die cut to make a stitched ornament hanger. Cut it in half and you have two of them!
I hope you found some new ideas to make snowflake filled cards! Enjoy the holiday season and I will be back on the blog in the New Year to share more wonderful Stampin’ Up! products from the new Mini Catalogue that will be released in January.
