Bejeweled Snowflakes

Hi everyone!  Julie Ranae here with you today.
I am so excited and honored to have been asked to be
the December Guest Designer here at
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

It was not a tough decision for me when it came to which stamp
set I wanted to play with this month.
I fell in love with Snowflake Flourish the day I laid
eyes on it and have had a great deal of fun working on
different design ideas.

This week, I'm bringing you a pretty simple design
but one that I think is fun and effective.

I layered two different inks on top of one another and
stamped the flourish on crisp white cardstock.
From there, it was a matter of finding an array of
gemstone brads to compliment each snowflake.
Don't you just LOVE the font on the sentiment?!
I sure do and love how beautifully it stamps in
a Slate Grey ink.  From there, it really is just a matter
of layering the pieces
on complimentary cardstock panels before placing it on the card base.

Here is a view from the top down showing how
dimensional the brads make this card...

Easy-peasy but with an elegance as well.

I'm so glad you came by today and I am really looking
forward to sharing with you each Tuesday this month!

What I used to create this project:
Stamps: Snowflake Flourish from
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Ink: Ocean & Slate from A Muse Studio
Ocean Depth by VersaMark
Embellishments: Gems/Pearl brads by
Making Memories,
American Crafts and The Paper Studio
