Sweet N Sassy snowflakes

TGIF! It has been a pretty busy week here and I have not had much crafting time unfortunately. What little time I have had has been spent on design work that I can't show you just yet LOL. I do have a couple fairly simple cards to share with you today that are for the limited supplies challenge today on Splitcoast. You were to stretch yourself for the challenge so I did simple with not too many layers and used ribbon in a new way on one of them. I used the sweet n sassy stamps snowflakes set on both of them which was designed by Chris Dickinson and was also a gift to me from her :). Take a look:

I stamped the bottom section of snowflakes with 3 different colors and rounded the corners. I added a solid top section of CS and sewed onto my brown matte before adhering to the card base. I stamped the center snowflake then stamped the sentiment on top of it followed by sponging the edges and sewing it onto the matte. I wrapped my ribbon around the card and cinched it with a button tightened with twine.

stamps- sweet n sassy snowflakes
CS- ocean tides, ripe avocado, dk choc, white ; papertrey ink
accessories- stitched grosgrain, twine, button, sewing machine, corner rounder punch

This card is quite simple and elegant. I stamped the snowflake in navy, scored a frame around it, double matted it and accented it with silver pearls. I embossed the sentiment in the lower right corner and finished the card off with some silver ribbon.

This Sunday Feb. 15 is the quarterly high hopes stamps release. There are seriously some awesome new stamps coming out. Be sure to hop over to the divas' blogs (listed on on my sidebar to the right) to see who has some sneak peeks for you. I myself am awaiting to receive my stamps and I can hardly stand it LOL! I was able to get a couple of images to print off the computer from one of the divas so I hope to have time to make something with them today or tomorrow.

Well, I hope you have a nice weekend and Valentine's day tomorrow. Hopefully you will be able to do something special or get some crafting time.
