Snowflakes Turnabout

Hello and welcome back! Today I am sharing the second post in my Christmas series, this one features the cards I made using the Snowflakes Turnabout from Concord & 9th. This stamp set came out last year, so I’ll have some old cards to share too. Remember, these post are a bit of a different format, so that I can include all the cards. Brace yourselves!

Background: stamped 4 times with Versamark and embossed with Wow Opaque White embossing powder. MFT Kraft cardstock. Some snowflakes colored with Polychromos colored pencils. I messed up this panel too, so I trimmed it down and added C&9th Pearl glitter cardstock to the top and bottom.

This one might me by favorite, even though it’s not watercolor, lol.

Background: Stamped 4 times on Neenah 80 lbs with MFT Grout Gray ink. The border is Wintry Edge dies, with Pearl glitter cardstock. Originally I added clear Wink of Stella on the snowflakes, but it wasn’t as sparkly as I wanted, so I used adhesive and Lawn Fawn Chunky glitter.

Sentiment: C&9th Merry die, cut from C&9th Silver glitter cardstock, along with 4 more from Neenah. Christmas from C&9th Joyful Noel, embossed with Hero Arts Silver powder.

Embellishments: Snowflakes from the edge die.

Cards from last year. I don’t have all the details for these cards, but they show you some more options.

This one is a favorite of mine. Stamped once and embossed with Gold. The background is Storm Cloud Nuvo Shimmer powder and some gold shimmer spray.

This card features C&9th Winter Wear.

Whew. These post wear me out! I hope they are helpful though. Please let me know if you have any questions. I know, these post are a bit light on detail.

Thanks for stopping by!
