Snowflake Wishes with Judy

Hello everyone!

Have you had your first snow yet? Maybe you live in a place where snow is rare (I would love that). In any case, while I don't like the snow and cold weather, I do love making snowflake cards. 

A few weeks ago I (Judy) headed to sunny southern Arizona, where snow is rare. But my sister and I had a blast making several backgrounds using the Elegant Snowflake Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. I had purchased the Catherine Pooler Paradise Found Mini Ink set for us to play with, and we had fun trying different colors and depths of color with the stencil.

I love to use my Memory MISTI to hold stencils in place and keep them straight. The magnets work wonders and I am not spending a lot of time taping up the stencil sides. I use a tape loop on the back of my card, and place the stencil in the corner. It makes it quick and easy!

For this card, I chose the lighter of the blue backgrounds, and added a sentiment from one of my sister's stamp sets (SU!) in her stash. I used my Mini MISTI and placed the background in the corner, stamping the sentiment with my favorite black, VersaFine Clair Nocturne. So crisp!  

I have brighter lights in my studio than she did on her living room floor (first photo), but the color gradient is really the same IRL. I offset the front panel for interest. A clean and simple, quick and easy card for Christmas! And no cold or real snow in making it!

I wish all of my US friends a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow -- BUT before I go - CHECK THIS OUT:
