It's fluttering snowflakes at Sweet Stampin'

Hi Bloggers

I hope you have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you are up to!  I sincerely hope you are not affected by the storms around at the moment.

The theme this week at Sweet Stampin' is Snowflakes, and the team have produced some fabby works of inspiration for you, so please pop across and have a look.

I have been playing with Lord Tim stamps for my project this weekend.  It is an 8 x 8" card - I am quite liking this size at the moment, and have made quite a few Christmas cards this size.  For the background I stamped with Versamark and embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder in Silver, and then coloured with Distress Inks in a variety of blues.  For the piece the reindeer is on, again I stamped in Versamark, but embossed the snowflakes with clear embossing powder, and then stamped the reindeer in Versamark and embossed with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder in Black.  Again I coloured in Distress Inks in blues, but added some green at the bottom and a smidgeon of Scattered Straw around the area of the antlers.

My snowflakes are cut with a Martha Stewart punch, and I covered them with glue and dipped them in Twinklets.  I have added some crystals to these and a few tiny ones to some of the snowflakes on the card.

Our sponsor this week is Tiddly Inks, where you will find a large range of digi stamps, papers and other stuff.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

The Stamp Man - Christmas
