TSSC 42 Frosty Day Snowflakes

Happy Monday! Time for Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge, #42 already! Todays sketch is a fun and unusual one! Here it is:

I was drawn to use the new Frosty Day Designer Series Paper from the fabulous Holiday Mini Catalog; this mini has SO many new and cool products to use in stamping and scrapping, home decorating and crafting! The colors in this DSP are Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White and some of the papers also have Bashful Blue in them. These papers can be used not only for Christmas holidays but also throughout the winter, and the designs are all new!


I recently received the Snowflakes Set #2 Sizzix Dies for the Big Shot (#113449, set of 4 dies, $19.95) and have been looking for an excuse to use them, lol! I die cut them out of Whisper White and adhered one to the Close to Cocoa tag shape with a 2 Way Glue Pen as well as a green Rhinestone Ice Circle brad. Below that I stamped the "Merry & Bright" (from the To You and Yours set) in White Craft ink and embossed it in white embossing powder. The tag shape was then layered on Kiwi Kiss cardstock and adhered with Dimensionals for some lift. I "fudged" a little in that my tag is larger than the one in the sketch so it would accommodate the snowflake, but hey, we stampers are all about individual creativity aren't we? lol!
