Snowflake cards | SSS card kit & Giveaway

Hi! Today I am showcasing the January card kit by SimonSaysStamp. The kit is called “Snowflake Builder” and I just love the color combo! It includes lots of fun products such as snowglobes, a stamp set, a snowflake die, a jar of matte medium, a blue alcohol ink, mica flakes, patterned paper, cardstock and envelopes.

1. alcohol ink card

For the first card I used the blue alcohol ink that came in my kit. I applied that on yupo paper and some alcohol to move the ink easier with a straw while blowing. The blue background helps the cut out snowflake pop even more!

I also did the lift-ink technique on the background that added some extra interest and visual texture.

2. heat embossing card

For this card I layered two stamps of snowflakes one on top of the other for a more complicated look. I did some simple heat embossing with white powder and then applied my sentiment on top. For some extra silver sparkle I matted the panel with glitter cardstock and added silver sequins on the snowflake.

This is a square card, that’s 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and it fits in a standard envelope.

    I love the snowflake theme for cards, it is “wintery”” and festive! I like better the alcohol ink card, because I love the blue-green colors… Please, Vicky chose me, I would like to win something for a change… From the start I liked your videos (mostly the Art journals), but your cards are always simple and sophisticated.

    Realize after so many years of card making I don’t have snowflake stamps. Have dies though, so do like there is a whole large set of snowflake stamps. Also, have never done the ink ghosting technique. Love learning more uses from my supplies. Sparkle speaks to me and silver border makes that square pop. Thanks for sharing!!
