Snowflake Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to the Snowflake Showcase Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell in a small town at the very bottom of Illinois smack dab in the middle of the United States!

The blog hop is all about the newest offering coming from Stampin’ Up… The Snowflake Showcase Suite!  

Here is Shannon West to introduce you to this fabulous suite.

Is that not a great suite.  I had a lot of fun playing with it and can’t wait to get it into you hands so you can do the same!

While, I absolutely love the snowflakes, I decided to show you that this really is a year-round suite.  

I think Basic Black and Powder Pink is such a classic combination, don’t you?

I used the small flower stamp and VersaMark ink to stamp the background.  Then, I used the VersaMark to stamp the medallion and sentiment and black emossing powder to give texture to the card. I think the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon is the perfect touch to give this card the polished posh look.

Here is the other non-snowflake Snowflake Suite card for you.

For this card, I used a the Buffalo Check background stamp in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla and added lines using Old Olive and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers.  I used the Layered Leaves embossing folder on the Old Olive strip.  The foliage is cut from Old Olive and Early Espresso using the coordinating dies. The flowers were stamped in Crushed Curry and cut using the dies.  I just love the delicate layers.  I added a Gold Faceted Gems to the center.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso and puched using a circle punch.  A little Linen Thread bow and you’ve got a cute little card!

That’s all I have to show you today. 

Now, hop along to the next blogger in line!

Until next time.. keep it simple, Stampers!

🙂  Joanne
