Surprise, surprise, my tutorial today is not the typical one you see here on my blog. It only has a few steps so it whips up in no time at all. The snowflake stamp I used is from a new set coming out by Stampin’ Up “Serene Snowflakes”. It will be available for sale in the new Stampin’ Up Holiday Mini catalog starting September 1, 2009. If you would like a copy of the new mini catalog, please e-mail your address to me at [email protected] and I will put one in the mail to you. If you are customer of mine already you do not have to request one. It will automatically be sent to you. 🙂
Let’s get started on the tutorial. . .
|Stamps: Stampin’ U Serene Snowflakes|
|Paper: Stampin’ Up Whisper White and Brilliant Blue|

Stamped snowflake on a 4″ square piece of Whisper White card stock using Versamark only. Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun to protect the white of the card stock under the image.
Sponged Brilliant Blue ink on the snowflake starting in the middle and working in a circular motion gradually working outward. Every time I re-inked my sponge I started back in the middle. This helps keep the center dark and then it fades outward.
Sponged Brilliant Blue ink around the outside edge of a 5 1/8″ piece of Whisper White.
Layered by white panels with Brilliant Blue Panels. That’s all there is to it. 🙂
I hope you have been inspired to try a simple, but elegant card today.
On a different note, I traveled to Lynchburg Virginia on Thursday, August 13th and just returned yesterday. I was there teaching workshops to some extremely fun ladies. I drive to most of my workshop location, unless they are more than 13 hours away, then I fly. I have the very best job in the world right now going from one location in the United States to another. This time I went through Ohio, West Virginia and then Virginia. Here are a few sites I seen along the way on the scenic Byway Route 64.
Seen lots of Deer. I past one group that were standing on the road in a circle having a conversation, lol.
These last photos were taken early morning on my return trip. I hit the road at 3:00 a.m. to beat the traffic. 🙂 My very early starts also give me a chance to view this.
Where did the road go?
Okay, enough already with the trip photos. 🙂
How about a funny before I close. . . . . . .
