Baby it's cold outside with Stampin' Up!'s Snow Flurry

Christmas card using Stampin Up Snow Flurries Die

Well it's not really.  We've had some lovely sunshine this week but CASology are looking for white on their cue card.  So snow came to mind.

I recently purchased Stampin' Up!'s Snow Flurry die from the Autumn/Winter catalogue and thought it was about time I had a play with it. 

My first card uses two of  the die cuts layered up with some sparkly Basic Rhinestones to add a little glimmer.  A strip of Whisper White embossed with Perfect Polka Dots sits behind it.  I added touches of blue to my card because I always love it when you get a crisp snowy day and it's so white you can see a hint of blue.  Merry Christmas from Stampin' Up!'s Petite Pairs is stamped in Bashful Blue and the mount is also Bashful Blue. 

Here's a second card using the full snowflake all layered up. 

Again I've given it a little bling with a large Basic Rhinestone in the middle and dots of Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle.  Also in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.  I'm loving this new catalogue, my wish list is huge from the suppliment alone!  The snowflake is attached to a panel of Bashful Blue then onto a second panel of Whisper White. 

These were so quick and simple to run up.  Perfect for making a batch of Christmas cards. 

If you would like to get in touch to discuss your wish list then please email me on  There's lots of ways you can spread the cost.  One of them is to join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator and earn the discount for yourself.

Hope it's not snowing where you are but lovely and sunny instead!  Hee Hee x
