The challenge for this month at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is SNOWFLAKES. We want to see snowflakes! I used a TiddlyInks stamped image for this challenge, not a digital.
The background paper is made with Core-dinations whitewashed paper and an embossing folder by Embossilicious so that when I sanded it, the snowflakes came out pink. Then the background on the image is a stencil by Memory Box on smooth white paper and I used a Stampin' Up dauber with pink ink. I used absolutely no design paper on this card, which is very rare for me! The Christmas tree is a diecut by La-La Land and the icicle die is by Marianne with White Glitter Ritz added over the entire die cut.
I colored my image with Copics and then fussy cut the image. I used Sno-Tek for the snow and Star Dust Stickles for my little dots of snowflakes.
I put a pretty paper doily under my Wild Orchid flowers, ribbon, pearl pin (from my best friend, Lillian) and sequin arrangement and added a little white paint to the flowers. I'm not a sequin fan, but I found a bottle of assorted pink/peach sequins by Doodlebug and couldn't resist getting them. I used white pearl paint in the center of each of my sequins since I dislike seeing the sequin hole.
The sentiment tickets and matching die cut are by Whimsy. The snowflake is actually a pink foam snowflake and then a white plastic snowflake layered on top of it with a sequin in the middle.
The prize this month is Stamp Art by Kathryne who has donated 5 digis to the winner! The gals on the Christmas at Sweet Stampin' Design Team have made some fabulous projects for the SNOWFLAKE challenge. Stop by and take a look and we hope you'll be inspired to join this challenge!
