TECC44 Huge Snowflake

November 28th, 2008

Happy Black Friday!  Are you shopping today?  I’m certainly not!  But I am planning to enjoy some stamping.  🙂  (Oh and some sleeping in – since I’m typing this up way past my bedtime Thursday night *wink*)

Instead of fighting the crowds I’d suggest some on-line shopping in your pj’s!  Of course you can shop Stampin’ Up! on-line through the link on my SU website and there are some super fun specials this weekend!  AND you can shop at Taylored Expressions where you’ll get FREE SHIPPING with orders over $40 through Sunday as well as the JustRite BOGO sale!

Besides being Black Friday it is of course also Cupcake Friday and Taylor has another great sketch for us to create with – click here to see the sketch and get all the info to play.  I just gotta say – I LOVE how this card turned out and I’m loving the color combo of Riding Hood Red, Taken with Teal and Baja Blue!


I started with a square panel of shimmer white cardstock run through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflake embossing folder and corners trimmed with the ticket corner punch.  That was layered onto Taken With Teal and then onto the Riding Hood Red 4.25″ square card base.  The focal point was created by layering 3 Felt Flurries snowflakes and attaching a super fancy rhinestone brad (forgotten where I got those – Joann’s I think) over punched circles of Baja Blue and Taeken With Teal.  In the photo it might look like one solid square of the red patterned Holiday Treasures dp, but it is actually 4 small squares (as in the sketch) adhered to a TWT panel.  The edges of the Teal panel were covered with Sticky Strip and clear microbeads were applied – gives such a nice frosty look.  The same technique was used on the horizontal strip of Teal layered with Baja.  The sentiment is a rub on from the SU set Chit Chat.  Some teal Kaiser Craft rhinestones on that panel and some Adorn It droplets in the corners finish off this wintery card.

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up –

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • And this week’s Featured Stamper is the immensely talented Karen Giron at The Sweetest Thing.

    Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you had a super Thanksgiving and enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
