Snowflake Ornament

Hello everyone !  Fall is here so I'm in the mood to keep making Christmas cards.  I've been busy working on card samples for Helen of Crop Circles as I'm assisting her this year at her Pot Luck Christmas Card event.   We are using some gorgeous Penny Black, Hero Art stamps & more.   I'll post some of the cards at some point.

This morning, I'm posting another Christmas card.  I used Chocolate Baroque's beautiful Snowflake Flourish set which includes many stamps for endless creations.  It was on my 'wish list' for at least a year and finally I have it !     For this card I used the Snowflake background, Ornament & sentiment. 

I embossed all images with dark purple (Eggplant by Adirondack).   I used Milled Lavender, Victorian Velvet & Peeled Paint Distress Inks to blend colour onto the images.  I also used a Distress Marker and glitter on the Ornament snowflake.

I'll be back soon with a Fall card using Design by Ryn's Acorn Faerie, it's so cute. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !

A beautiful card Shirley, made with my favorite bauble stamp, and also one of my favorite sentiments. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been making for Crop Circles, sounds like it will be fun.

Hi Shirley,
just thought I'd buzz to say thanks for your lovely comment. I do treasure the consistent reminders about our differences in seasons and circumstances, and also our similarities across such distance.
Your Christmas cards are very appealing, and I'm reminded that I must get busy with my own.
Enjoy the rest of the week,

Fabulous design, Shirley. No wonder you wanted those snowflakes so much. They are gorgeous - so intricate and delicate. Sure looks great with the ornament. The colors look so rich.

Bonnie said...

Wow, Shirley, what a beautiful background and ornament! I love how the snowflake is stamped off the ornament. Adds so much more interest!
