Embossed Snow Flurries

Snow flurries are in the forecast - at least here in Wisconsin.  So . . . with thoughts of the white stuff in my head, today I offer you this. A little Flurry of Wishes for a happy day.

Snowflake card made with Stampin'UP!'s Flurry of Wishes Stamp Set

Simple and Sparkly: On this card I wanted something that reflected the simple clean but sparkly look of a fresh winter snowfall. I did three things to get that look.
1.  I keep the colors to a minimum: Soft Sky, White, black (sentiment) and Silver
2.  The sparkle comes from both the rhinestones and the silver glimmer paper
3.  And extra shine comes from embossing the snowflakes

Heat embossing adds a subtle but impressive accent to a project.  Here I stamped the snowflakes in white craft ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Its a great effect.

Do you have a snowflake stamp set?  There are some shapes that are just basic that I think should be in everyone's craft shelf. And in my opinion, I think everyone should have a basic snowflake set, even if you live in the desert or the tropics, a snowflake is just a basic shape.

Flurry of Wishes is available at least through May of 2016. You'll find it on page 48 of the Occasions catalog and if you still have the 2015 Holiday catalog its on page 25. Do you like these snowflakes? The super cool thing about this particular snowflake stamp set is that it has a matching punch.  And the super cool thing about Stampin'UP! is that they bundle products like this and let you save 15% when you buy them together. Cool, right?  (bad pun there, get it?  snow and cool, sorry . . . maybe my brain is a little frostbitten)
