Serene Snowflakes and some Cold Trick-or-Treating

Christmas Cards made with a Stampin'UP! set called Serene Snowflakes
Serene Snowflakes -v- Violent Storm and on Halloween Yet! So here we are on October 31st - Halloween and I'm posting about snow! That's because the east coast was just hit with a freak snowstorm that dumped a foot and a half of snow. I can empathize with that because living here in Wisconsin we get our fair share of the fluffy white stuff. Luckily we did not get any snow from this storm so while it may be a bit cold we'll have trick-or-treating as usual.

These cards were all made with a stamp set called Serene Snowflakes. These were part of the display at the recently held Christmas Open House. The top 5 cards are all the same card, just made in different colors. Isn't it fun to take one design and then play with the colors.
Update: Everyone needs a good snowflake set and I have many.  Actually the card in the close-up was made with a different stamp set: Snow Swirled.  

Christmas Card made with a Stampin'UP! set called Serene Snowflakes and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
Snowflakes sparkle with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  The top card in this bunch was covered with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. You can see a close-up here to see how it really sparkles.

Embossing powders need something to hold them to the surface until they are heat set. I just pressed my Versamark Ink Pad over the whole piece with the snowflakes, sprinkled on the Iridescent Ice and Heat set it. Super Easy and the results have a great "wow" factor. Click these links to see more details about this card. You'll have to keep scrolling down this link but you'll see the explanation of this card as well as many other cards made with Iridescent Ice.

FYI: The colors on this card are River Rock and Always Artichoke.

The green one (the one you use as a closeup) is not Serene Snowflakes, but Snow Swirled.
