Sunday Sketches SS008 - Swirling Snowflakes Thinlits Dies

Swirly Snowflakes Thilits Dies by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Snowflakes have been swirling here in Minnesota already for the past few weeks.  

Snowflakes are amazing things, they say there are not two alike.  I started to think about that and wondered if the saying was true so I googled it.  I got lots of poems about snowflakes and then came across an interesting article...

"The Science of Snowflakes, Why No Two are Alike".   

So if you are as curious as me you can check out the link.

Snowflakes are fascinating and maybe that is why like tree stamps I really can't have too many.   I could not resist the Swirling Snowflakes Thinlits Dies, so delicate and versatile.

I love how my card turned out today using the SS008 Card Sketch.  Check back to the original card I created to see how different the two are.  You can see how using the same layout but changing up the stamp set and colors can give it an entirely new look. 

  • Card Base is the Whisper White Thick Cardstock (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") I love this cardstock as it is the same thickness as our colored cardstocks giving the base such a nice sturdy feel. 

  • I ran the card front through the big shot using the White Wonder embossing folder.

  • Then I used the borders from the dies to cut out the Real Red cardstock (2-1/2" x 5-1/2") and then attached some gold sequins to the back of the first snowflake with them hanging down and then attached the cardstock to the card front about 1/4" from the top. 

  • Then I cut out the row of snowflakes in Whisper White and cut them apart to create 3 individual snowflakes and adhered them to the Real Red Cardstock.  

  • Tied a small bow out of the 1/8" Gold Ribbon and attached it with a glue dot to the first snowflake.

I am in love with the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits Dies and can see using this a lot throughout the winter.   How many love snowflakes and if you live where it is warm do you still use snowflakes for card making?  Click Here to Answer

Border Buddy Saturday! - Quilted Christmas Suite

Hello Stampers - it's Border Buddy Saturday and it's Alison here this week!

Quited Christmas BB 1 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca

Today I'm sharing a card I received in a swap made with the Quilted Christmas Suite of products including the Christmas Quilt Photopolymer Stamp set, the Quilt Builder Framelits Dies and the Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.  Patsy and I just love all these products and have featured it as our November Border Buddy Free Card suite.  When you place an order with either of us in our online store you will receive a FREE Pdf with instructions for 8 cards using the Quilted Christmas Suite.  

Read all about our program on our blogs:

Quited Christmas BB 3 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca.jpg

This card is a step card which folds flat for mailing.  It uses the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder which works perfectly with the paper pierced star on the card - don't you think?


Quited Christmas BB 4 www.stampcrazywithalison.ca.jpg

It's not difficult to paper pierce the star shape.  Cut out the outline die from Basic Black and then cut the star out twice - once from the Garden Green patterned Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (DSP) and one from the Real Red patterned DSP.  Then cut out the star frame.  Glue the Basic Black star to the solid star and glue in the little DSP pieces.

I'm not a quilter but this is the next best thing for me! Here's a collage of the cards included in our Free Card Tutorial this month.
