I’ve been looking for a reason to ink up Flurry of Wishes – a wonderfully wintery stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming Holiday Catalog. This week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge gave me the inspiration I needed. Yippee! Here’s my card:
And here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Flurry of Wishes Bundle. I’m excited to offer a sneak peek at one of my favorite bundles from Stampin’ Up!’s upcoming Holiday Catalog. Flurry of Wishes is a photopolymer stamp set that pairs perfectly with the new Snow Flurry punch. Oh, what fun! The punch gives you a two-for-one with two snowflakes that come on one stamp – perfectly lined up every time! The largest snowflake also pairs with the Flower Medallion punch. Yippee! Not only are these lacy snowflakes beautiful, but the sentiments in the stamp set are pretty awesome.
- Stamping Off. To create a variety of shades and textures with three colors, I stamped some images in their fully inked up glory and stamped off several of the images once on scrap paper to give a lighter version of their fully inked self. If you missed my video about the joys of stamping off, you can see it here.
- Color Inspiration. Lost Lagoon was a really big color in last year’s Designer Series Papers for the Holidays. I pulled some of the green from this gorgeous In Color by pairing it with Pear Pizzazz and Mint Macaron in these snowflakes.
Stamp Sets: Flurry of Wishes Papers: Lost Lagoon, Whisper White, Thick Whisper White Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron Accessories: 2-1/2″ Circle punch, Circles Collection Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to The Pals Paper Arts to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
