Snowflake Trio (PP60)

Time for another fun challenge at The Paper Players. I’m halfway through my August Guest Design month and I’ve had such a great time with these ladies. Truly, they are an “on-the-ball” and organized bunch and so much fun too! LeAnne has put together a great sketch for us this week and here is what I’ve come up with:

The base of my card is More Mustard and I’ve layered it with Basic Gray cardstock – on the bottom 1/3rd I added some Basic Gray designer paper. On both the cardstock and designer paper I stamped the Snowflake stamp in Basic Gray which I stamped off first so it is a very subtle addition.

Next, I added the central panel of Riding Hood Red. I adhered two snowflakes in Riding Hood Red (which were sponged with Riding Hood Red ink). Then, for the “stand out” one, I actually punched three Very Vanilla snowflakes and in the centre is a small flower from the Bitty Punch Pack and a Basic Gray brad.

Lastly, I added a sentiment from Four the Holidays stamped in Basic Gray ink on More Mustard cardstock. This layer is also sponged – lots of sponging on this one!

Want to see another one? Here is a more simplified version for a holiday stamp-a-stack class:

I changed the colours slightly – using Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White and Basic Gray. I added some texture with the Snowflakes embossing folder and the sentiment was stamped on a small piece of vellum. A clear rhinestone brad was added to the centre for some bling.

Now it’s your turn. Head on over to The Paper Players and play along with us and this sketch challenge. Here is a taste of what the design team has come up with:
