Snowflake Card Set - Fun Winter AI Blog Hop! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Welcome to the Artful Inkables Fun Winter Blog Hop! Today we are featuring some favorite holiday sets from the past - Paper Snowflakes, Mug Mates and Snow Play.  You're probably joining me from Lisa's blog. If you’ve missed any of the blog hop, I'm the last one, so after you finish here, start at the beginning with Kristin (the talented stamp designer and owner) at the Artful Inkables Blog and follow the links. 

The set that I used is called "Paper Snowflakes".  WOW!  These snowflakes are gorgeous!!!   We don't see a lot of snow here in Florida - tee he!  Well, that doesn't stop us Florida girls from craving all of snowflake stamps we can get our hands on!

I used three of the snowflakes on this first card, stacked up like a Christmas tree!  You can click on each of the photos to see the details.  

For the next card, I did some random stamping.  I used CTMH's Crystal Blue ink and textured cardstock for all of the cards, as well as our pearls, which I colored silver with a marker.  The Crystal Blue snowflake is from the newest CTMH Heartfelt sets (LOVE them!), and the satiny white ribbon hails from Michaels' dollar bin (LOVE that!).

Speaking of dollar bins, I found the cute little felt snowflake bag at the Target dollar bin last year.  What a cute little container it makes for my snowflake card set.  All wrapped up so nicely!  Can you believe that precious thing cost only a dollar?  I wonder if they have them again this year.  If you have visited lately, let me know.  'Cause you know I need more stuff!!! 

Finally, the last two cards use the same elements, just put together differently.  See how nicely the snowflakes coordinate with each other?  I stacked two of them on card number three, and could easily have added a third. 

Have you commented on each of the INKgirls’ blogs? Have you seen something that you are going to make for Christmas?  I sure have!  Be sure you left comments on all of the the INKgirls' blogs, because one lucky commenter will win an Artful Inkables holiday set!!!  wooHOOO!!!! 

Leave your comments no later than Sunday, November 1 at Midnight PST. A random winner will be chosen and announced on the Artful Inkables blog!

Good luck!!
