Whimsy Stamps - Snow Flurry - Simple Cards


I have a couple of simple Christmas cards to share with you that look impressive but actually take very little time to make. 

My first card used the Snow Flurry Background Stamp and the Snow Flurry Clear Stamp Set.

I used some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper to stamp and heat emboss the background stamp and also to stamp and heat emboss one of the snowflakes from the clear stamp set.  I used Shaded Lilac distress ink over the back ground stamp and to accent the snowflake. The sentiment is from the St Nicholas Clear Stamp Set. I popped up my front panel on some craft foam and finished my card simply with some purple gems.

For my second card I stamped some of the Snow Flurry snowflake stamps onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I also stamped another sentiment from the St Nicholas stamp set and heat embossed that in gold to match.

I then did some ombre ink blending using Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral distress ink. After cutting out my panel I sprinkled a few drops of water and lifted a little colour for interest. I didn't have any gold cardstock so I embossed the edge of my card and then mounted my panel right on top so there was just a thin gold outline.
I finished the card with some Pale Gold Nuvo Drops.

Below you can find links to the items I used.
