Snow Swirled Continued...

After making all the navy and silver cards for the last post I just had to use this set in a different way. By the way, if you check my "Dasher" post you might notice that I used the snow flake and greeting images from Snow Swirled on almost all of them. Snow Swirled is one of those stamp sets you can just use over and over and over and never get sick of. Trust me, I would be sick of it by now.

For this first card I used the embossing resist technique with iridescent ice embossing powder and Not Quite Navy ink on a sponge. Its a fun technique to try but it does take a couple tries to get it just right. Here's a great tutorial if you'd like more info:

I used:
*Snow Swirled stamp set
*Not Quite Navy, Kraft and Whisper White card stock
*Not Quite Navy ink
*Top Note Bigz Die
*Kraft taffeta ribbon, Iridescent Ice embossing powder, stamping sponges

For this next adorable card I used chalk. Yep, no ink at all...Well, except Versamark. For a tutorial on this technique, check this out:

I used:
*Snow Swirled stamp set
*Real Red, Garden Green and Whisper White card Stock
*White satin ribbon, Versamark ink, corner rounder punch, Stampin' Pastels and sponge daubers

Next up...Glitter! (This one's for you Baby!) I was at a craft store the other day and saw the prettiest wreath made of turquoise and brown glittery jingle bells (sorry there's no picture) and I thought, hmmm, I bet that would make a cute card. So here it is. What the picture doesn't show well is that there is glitter on the tree as well.
I used:
*Snow Swirled stamp set
*Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock
*Tempting Turquoise and Versamark ink
*Top Note Bigz die, Tempting Turquoise 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Tombo liquid glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter

And last up is a card copied from page 4 of the Holiday Mini catalog except with different stamp set. It measures 6 1/2" x 3 1/4" and fits in a long open end envelope. Its a fun size, especially if you're going to put money inside!
I used:
*Snow Swirled stamp set
*Real Red and Whisper White card stock
*Real Red, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip ink
*1 1/4"circle punch, rhinestone brads, Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
