Snow Swirled Christmas Cards

I was fortunate enough to play with the Snow Swirled stamp set a few weeks ago (thanks, Kathie!).  I made these Christmas cards in less than half an hour!  They sure were quick cards 🙂

I used the colours Night of Navy and Silver.  The silver snow swirls are heat embossed with silver embossing powder, and I’ve added some rhinestone brads to sparkle things up.  I’ve got to have bling,  especially at Christmas, lol!

I really loved this stamp set, the snow flakes embossed so perfectly.  Lovely!

Thanks for looking 🙂

Classic Stars

Do you have the Classic Stars jumbo wheel yet?  If you don’t, you should!  Well, I will qualify … particularly if you have kids!  I think it makes great boy and girl birthday cards.  Together with the coordinating star punches, it’s a must have at only $AUS15.95.

This is a card I made to demonstrate heat embossing, using silver embossing powder.  The SU silver embossing powder is gorgeous! You must try it.  Really.  You must.  Together with the silver, I’ve made this card using the colours Lovely Lilac, Rose Red and Whisper White.  The wide grosgrain ribbon is in coordinating Rose Red.  And the lovely patterned paper under the ribbon?  Well, that’s from the Sweet Nothings Simply Scrappin’ kit.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Think Happy Thoughts.  The little star stamped in Lovely Lilac ink is from Seasons of Joy – what a versatile stamp set!  There is a neat little trick to the punched out “outlined” star.  Why not sign up to receive my monthly newsletter today?  Then you’ll learn the tip in my June newsletter.
