Non-Traditonal Snowflakes - Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes

   Pinning something on Pinterest can sometimes open up a whole rabbit hole of things you didn't know you needed.  I saw a cool color combination a while back that pulled colors from a plant; very cool. The next thing I knew my feed had tons of color combination arrays from plants, bedding, decorating and so after pinning probably 50 of them I got the colors for my card today.  And now that I have all of these new combos I think Stampin' Up! needs to give us at least 20 new colors right away so I can stamp with them all!

  My card today plays along with the Festive Friday Challenge.  I used purple, snowflakes and metallics.

  My card starts with a Sahara Sand card base with a little sprinkle of snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamped in Sahara Sand ink on opposite corners.

  I backed a Stitched Rectangle die cut of the Wonder of the Season Specialty DSP with Blackberry Bliss.  On top of that I added my 3 snowflake die cuts in Just Jade, Blackberry Bliss and Shaded Spruce.  Each snowflake is covered in clear Wink of Stella for extra shimmer.  They are "hung" with gold twine and tied with a bow.

  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas is stamped in gold ink and cut with the Tasteful Labels die and popped with dimensionals.

  You could do a whole series of cards with this design and just change up the snowflake colors and the larger Stitched Rectangle die cut is a nice way to show off a larger piece of the awesome metallic Wonder of the Season DSP which I'm having a hard time using since I don't want to cover up any of it with other elements!  Stamping problems are real I tell you!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
