Snowflakes Say “Hello There” to the PPA

Is it to early for “Hello There” by Snowflakes… not for the PPA sketch challenge #220!  Are you ready to join us this coming week for the Pals Paper Arts sketch designed by Margaret Moody? Her sketches are fabulous and this one does not disappoint!

What images do you visualize using your stamps with this sketch?  I had visions of snowflakes…

Snowflake, Hello There, All is Calm DSP

Lots of shimmery snowflakes!  Using the accessory thinlit die pieces for the Snowflake Card Thinlits Die (pg 22 in the Holiday catalog) and the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper (pg 193 in the Annual catalog), I carefully cut out both snowflake sizes as well as the “snow” word.  I used two pieces of wax paper to aid in removing the delicate die cuts from the templates.

The “for you” image as well as the designer circle are part of the hostess set “Hello There” on page 237 of the Annual catalog.  Using VersaMark and White emboss powder on Lost Lagoon cardstock, the images were heat embossed.  The designer circle fit perfectly in a Starburst framelit; the sentiment within the 1-1/4″ circle punch.  Popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, the embossed sentiment is very effective with the glimmered snowflakes.  The background paper is part of the All is Calm Specialty designer series paper, also on pg 22 of the Holiday catalog.  The DSP peeks through the negative star punch (from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, pg 222 in the Annual catalog) beside “snow” in the bottom right corner.  And, I am certain you recognize the Decorative Dots textured impressions embossing folder… that TIEF will be very useful this coming season…

One more new product from pg 30 in the Holiday catalog, the Confetti Stars Punch.  Be sure to keep the confetti!  I bet you will find lots of ways to use the itty bitty stars in future projects!  On the left inside panel is the negative die from the large snowflake… just did not have the heart to throw it away!!!  Do you know of other uses for it?  Please do share!!

Alright-y… get your thinking caps on and join us, PLEASE, for #220 PPA sketch challenge… Cannot wait to see what inspires you…!  If you have any questions regarding this project, please do not hesitate to contact me.  In the meanwhile,

Have fun stamping!

    Katy, this is beautiful! You had me running to get my holiday catalog to check out page 22. How did that thinlts set miss my list?! I am now starting a new wish list! I love your pretty details, and the dazzling diamonds is the perfect snowflake. Thanks for the inspiration!
