I really wanted to use my winter sets for the last time this week before I put them away for awhile. I actually made both of the cards I have today last week but just did not have a chance to post them here.
The first was from the sketch challenge last week using my snowflakes set.
I stamped the 3 snowflakes and punched them with the square punch accenting with rhinestones. I ran the white section through the cuttlebug snowflake folder.
stamps- Sweet N Sassy snowflakes
Cardstock- white diamond metallic, silver premium glossy metallic, Prism navy blue
accessories- silver metallic ribbon, slot punch, snowflake cuttlebug folder, rhinestones
The second card uses the newly released Elegant Blessings set and the release party challenge sketch from Jeanette.
I stamped the cross with plum ink and then sponged around it with lavender while still in the oval die. I used the smaller cross in the set because all the other DT members were using the larger one. That's right you get 2 gorgeous crosses in this set along with some great sentiments. I had been asking Korin to do a cross set for me and she did not disappoint! This is just one of the awesome 5 new sets that Sweet N Sassy stamps released last Friday. This was really a fantastic release!
stamps- Sweet N Sassy Elegant Blessings
cardstock- white diamond, PTI plum pudding, lavender moon
accessories- rhinestones, shimmer brads, oval nesties, white and lavender satin ribbon
The fabulous white diamond paper on both cards is from paper temptress. Let me tell ya that I absolutely LOVE this paper! It is so pretty and sparkly and it is a very heavy weight which is terrific for card bases. This is now one of my favorite papers to use. One of my other favorite papers that I have mentioned before is the cryogen white which is sort of a creamy white not a bright white and has shimmer to it. I use it very often and the good news is that it is on sale for 40% off this month at Paper Temptress so you will want to check it out.
Have a great weekend and hope to see you on Sunday for the high hopes weekly challenge. I am happy to say that my card is already finished for it too LOL.
