Oh What Fun


Okay...I really got my sparkle on with this card!  Since I still had the Freshly Fallen set on my desk, I put it to use again.  I second generation stamped the solid circles (SSS Lots of Dots) in Hawaiian Shores, Lime Green (it's looking a little yellow in the photo) and Hibiscus Burst then stamped the snowflake image in matching full strength colors.  The mini dotted circles and sentiment are embossed with SSS silver ep.  The sparkly silver background paper is fabulously festive and to subtly add to the sparkle I put some clear Wink of Stella inside each of the snowflakes.

Challenges I am entering:

Freshly Made Sketches
Time Out - Christmas with a twist of pink and/or purple
SSS Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes
Christmas Card Challenge #47 - Anything goes
Just Add Ink - W=Winter & Wow it's sparkly!

Even though the images (PTI) and sentiment (Penny Black) are from Christmas sets, I totally think this would make a great baby shower invite, baby card, or pregnancy/birth announcement.

Thanks so Much for Looking!


  1. The pastels and the sparkle is wonderful together! Pretty card! So glad you shared this at FMS!

  2. Fabulous way to create a snowflake card and I think you are right you could use this for other kind of cards. I like the second generation stamping. Thanks for joining TO

  3. This is a very pretty card, Karen. I really like how you "stamped off" the colour of the circles, then added snowflakes in the full strength colours; a lovely effect. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!
