What better excuse to craft than being snowed in? I received these Darice Snowflake Dies as a gift from a sweet friend and I love them! Once I started, there was no stopping (kind of like the snow outside!).
I started by ink blending a background using Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink with Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes. And you know, they are not kidding about the life-changing part! From this day forward, I will not blend with anything else.
I finished it off with part of a Lawn Fawn sentiment and a Papertrey Ink “Snow” die.
I had a few leftover snowflakes (and those awesome blending brushes were still on my desk), so the second card was really just made with leftovers. I just might like it even better.
Finally, I had a bunch of blue cardstock strips on my desk from another project so I used those, along with the negative from all the die cut snowflakes for card #3! Added a heat embossed sentiment from WPlus9 on vellum so I wouldn’t lose the strips.

The sentiment was close but I want to be at the beach, not here in snowy Ohio!!
This week the SSS Wednesday Challenge was to make a card with a matching envelope. I tried my hand at making an envelope from some photo-realistic paper from my stash using the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. I started by creating a plain envelope to use as a template so that I could get the “horizon” lined up correctly.
Then it was time to hit the beach (section of stamps) and find something to go with it. Is it bad that I have an entire beach section of stamps? No? OK good.
Also linking up the card to the Less is More Challenge which is water.
