I hope you enjoyed the Stampin’ Addicts Blog Hop this weekend. I am constantly amazed at the talent of the women on the hop! I had some stamping time while watching the bowl games on New Year’s Day, so I thought I would try a new challenge. Well, a “new to me” challenge. I went over to Our Creative Corner, and they had a really interesting challenge this week. The theme is “Thank You” and you need to use a blue and cream color palette and add metal and vellum to your creation. Wow. That seemed a lot to combine together at first, but then this brilliant idea popped into my head! What do you think?
Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Ink: Marina Mist
Paper: Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Vellum
Other: Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon, Very Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware, Designer Label Punch, Northern Flurries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Big Shot
The Hodge Podge Hardware has a Vanilla finish on it, but is actually metal, so I think that should count, don’t you? The snowflakes are embossed on vellum. If you do this, be sure to use the vellum card stock, not the vellum paper. The paper will tear.
ETA: A big thanks to Minnie for letting me know how well this fits into the Hand Stamped Sentiments Winter Blues Color Splash Challenge #49!
ETA 2: And hey, it is perfect for this week’s Stampin’ Celebration Inspiration Inspiration Challenge #34, as well!

The minute I saw Jen’s gorgeous card, I was amazed at how great the snowflakes looked in Melon Mambo & Old Olive! I immediately had to make one myself, and loved it so much that we made it at the after school class on Thursday as well. I changed mine up a little, to make it easier for the kids. It’s the perfect winter thank you!
Stamps: Northern Hearts, Heard from the Heart

I guess when you live you in Southern California, you can make the snowflakes any color that you want!

I had to try this because it looked so cool! I brayed Marina Mist ink on the inside of my embossing folder, and then when I put in the piece of Whisper White, only the raised snowflakes kept their original white! You may notice this card looks remarkably similar to this snowflake card. It is the same basic layout, but a very different feel to the card.

This may be the most stunningly elegant card I have ever made. Seriously. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It is just amazing in person. And so deceptively simple, that I will be doing it at workshops this fall, and quite possible with the my after school kids who are 2nd – 4th graders. Yep, it’s a winner all right! It combines both dry embossing (with the Big Shot) and heat embossing in silver.
