Snowflake Showcase - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog (Kayla MacAulay) from Tasmania, Australia. Thank you for visiting my blog on the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop today.
Today we are featuring the Snowflake Showcase special release of products which are available for Stampin' Up! demonstrators to pre-order this month and customer's next month.
This special release of products is an awesome way to add some great versatile stamp sets to your collection and make some beautiful projects.
Today I am featuring the Happiness Surrounds Photopolymer Stamp Set with the gorgeous and super versatile Snowfall Thinlets Dies.

I hope you find some inspiration today and be sure to check out all the other Artisan Blogs linked below....

Here's a look at the two cards I made using this fun stamp set.
On the left I focused on using the Snowfall Thinlets Dies with that gorgeous White Velveteen Paper. It makes the most gorgeous snowflakes and is such a nice texture to feel. 
I layered this snowflake die with stamped and die cut images from both the thinlets and the stamp set.

The card on the right shows how you can use just the stamp set to create a beautiful card also. I featured some stamping with one of the gorgeous larger stamps and layered in some of the smaller stamps. I have a new addiction to stamping with the gorgeous Shimmer Paint. It creates such a fun look and is so sparkly!

Here's a closer look at the first card and you can see here how I have also used the shimmer paint with one of the stamps to create a 'border'.
I accented the card with one of the gorgeous Snowflake Trinkets. These come in two gorgeous designs and add such a fun element to your card.

I also decorated the inside of the card with some gorgeous layered stamps and dies and kept it pretty simple without a sentiment just to make it suitable to sending to a friend. 

Here's a close up of the embellishing on the front of the card so you can see all the gorgeous textures and layers. I added a layer of the gorgeous Gold Glimmer Paper for some added sparkle and shine.

The second card, even without the dies is equally as fun to play with and has so much shimmer and shine. I have fussy cut the gorgeous leaves which are stamped in Blackberry Bliss. I added one of the gorgeous Snowflake Trinkets again and accented with some Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon, layered and stapled to the card.

I once again accented with some Gold Glimmer Paper and added some Metallic Brads and a Fresh Fig In Color Flower Button tied with some Linen Thread.

I added some more fun Shimmer Paint layered stamping and a fun sentiment to the inside of this card, This is a great congratulations card which could be sent for many occasions.

Here's a bit of a look at the finished card so you can see some of the gorgeous texture and the Shimmer Paint stamping.
