Snowflake Showcase 2 - Stampin' Up Artisan Blog Hop


Well, hello peaches! Welcome to the Snowflake Showcase Promotion Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! I'm so excited to be sharing a few more projects using some stunning new products! For a limited time (November 1st-30st) you can order this exclusive bundle, so grab yours now so you can start planning your classes!

As mentioned in my previous Snowflake Showcase post, these exclusive products can really dress up your projects and make them sparkle. The lovely Happiness Surrounds Set (149744) and the creatively cozy images of the Snow is Glistening Set (149742). Paired with the Snowfall Thinlits Dies (149692), the White Velveteen Paper (149619), and the Snowflake Trinkets (149620) accessories, you can make a complete winter wonderland! From the moment I saw these stunning products I was inspired. Here's a closer look at them:

Now for my projects today, I will be highlighting the Snow Is Glistening Stamp Set. Who doesn't love a stamp set with snowflakes?!. As mentioned in my previous post, the perfect six sided shapes work well for both snowflakes and flowers alike, so you'll find a lot of versatility in these sets. The tree stamp in this set is composed of perfect little snowflakes and could even be stamped repeatedly to create a fun snowflake background. Not only that, but there's two snowfall-sprinkling stamps that would make great patterned backgrounds as well!

 For my first card, I started with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and used Gray Granite Ink to stamp one of the sentiments onto my cardstock repeatedly. Some I stamped in full strength and some were stamped in 2nd and 3rd generation. Next, I stamped the tree stamp in Coastal Cabana Ink onto Coastal Cabana Cardstock for a tone on tone look. I roughed up the edged and added it to my panel with a bit of Silver Metallic Thread behind it. I also added one of the Snowflake Trinkets next to my greeting. I love all of the dimension and texture this card packs. Here's a close-up of my card below:

If you are new to crafting, this is a very easy card to create and is fairly quick too, which is ideal for Christmas and holiday card that need to be created in bulk. 

For my second card, I began with a piece of Coastal Cabana Cardstock. I used the snowflake stamps to stamp in Versamark Ink and embossed them in white to create a flurry of snowflakes for my background. I staggered them with the intention of adding a few die cut snowflakes and snowflake trinkets to create more dimension and texture. I love the simple nature of this card because, though it IS simple, the white on Coastal Cabana creates so much pop and really catches the eye.

My final project is easy and fun too. I created a winter-themed Mini Pizza Box gift box. You could put small treats inside or a few small notes. These little boxes are so great for handmade gifts! 

I used the Velveteen Paper to create the sweet little snowflakes of this box. It's so hard to capture the beauty and lovely feel of the Velveteen Paper but it die cuts like butter and feels so soft and smooth. 

I had so much fun creating with these perfectly inspiring products and I know you will fall in love with them too! I just know that this will be my go-to for my Christmas cards this year with its cozy images and winter-y elegance. Remember, these products will only be available through November 30th, so make sure you grab it while you can so that you can begin creating your own gorgeous classes and designs to share. I hope you have enjoyed today's projects. Keep hopping along and check out my other fellow teammates’ pages.
