Joyful Snowflakes!

How are you? I had a very relaxed day yesterday, not really doing much apart from crafting, while Keiran built lego left from his birthday in April! He did really well too!

Here is one of the cards I managed to make...

I used the lovely new Festive Flurry stamp set and used my Stampin' Write Markers to ink up my stamp. One thing I love about the markers is that you can pick out different parts to a stamp and give a really unique look each time. I used Marina Mist and Night of Navy for this stamp.

Here's a closer look...

Don't the snowflakes look lovely in two colours? And the sparkle? Well after I stamped them in ink, I used Versamark and my Stamp-a-ma-jig to re-stamp over the snowflakes, covered in Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, then heat embossed. Don't they sparkle beautifully?! I finished with my sentiment from Joyful Christmas.

Cardstock - Night Of Navy, Whisper White
Stamps - Festive Flurry, Joyful Christmas
