I have been having lots of fun with the Festive Flurry Stamp Set in the Holiday Mini Catalog even though I am not a fan of snow at all. I love the matching Framelits that cut out the intricate image of each snowflake which makes a quick and simple amazing image! When you purchase the stamp set and matching Framelits, you save 15%!!! Love a good deal! Here are some samples I have recently created using this stamp set! This card on the left was created using the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper and Silver Ribbon! Oh the Silver Ribbon….it is even more amazing in person! So shiny and perfect! I’m really loving the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper too! Usually my cards are Night of Navy, Silver, Cherry Cobbler or Old Olive but this year, I’m pretty sure they will be Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Smoky Slate! These colors are just so much fun!!! Here is another fabulous card created with the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper and Festive Flurry Stamp Set! Since banners are so in right now, I thought I would add some into one of my Holiday cards too!!! It’s a great way to showcase more patterns on the paper too!!! I love how the little rhinestones add a pop of bling and make it look like sparkly snowflakes. (Are you picturing that light snow with the sun shining on it and making it sparkle? And in my little world, I hope its melting the snow. So not a fan of snow! :))
I also wanted to share a little tip with you!!! On page 29 of the Holiday Mini Catalog 2013, you will see the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Stack on the top of the page and Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper! You might be thinking what is the difference. Well that’s what I am here for! To answer all those little crafting questions of your! The Specialty Paper Pack is 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ paper: 2 ea. of 5 double-sided designs; 1 ea. of 2 single-sided, foil-accented designs. The Paper Stack is 48 sheets of 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper: 24 ea. of 2 double-sided designs. The Paper Stack is perfect for making cards in multiples! It is amazing because otherwise I would have to buy 5 packages of the Specialty Paper to get my 80+ Holiday Cards! Thank you Stampin’ Up for making things easier!!!!
