Simon Says..........Snow White


Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is "Snow White" - you can put some snow on your creation, use lots of white, or interpret this as you like!  The DT are playing with Reverse Confetti this week - I made 2 cards using their Snowflake Trio dies:

supplies: white and Simon's fog cardstock (for twig wreath used as snowflake base), foiled and glittered silver card stock, Reverse Confetti Snowflake Trio die, Impression Obsession Wooden Plank cling stamp, Hero Arts Soft Granite ink, Simon's Stitched Rectangle and Chisolm Wreath die, Tim Holtz Holiday Words dies, white seam binding bow, light blue gems

I cut the smallest of the snowflakes from foiled and glittered silver card stock, and arranged them on the Chisolm Wreath, then added a bow and glued the wreath onto my planked background, edged in silver, then added my sentiment.

Here's a closer look - it sure is a sparkler!

Here's one more card, white on white this time, and it uses all of the snowflakes in this set:

supplies: white and white glitter cardstock, Snowflake Trio dies, another Tim Holtz Holiday Words die, Swiss Dot embossing folder, pearls, adhesive foam squares, white twine

Now it's your turn.  As always, we have another $50.00 gift voucher


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

Wow, Lin......I love that wreath and how you mixed the glitter with the foiled snowflakes. It gives such a festive sparkle. I have to get that wooden plank background stamp after seeing you getting so much use out of it. Both cards are gorgeous.

Oh, Lin, I love these snowflakes, and how beautiful the wreath is with them...surprised when I realized they were snowflakes! And I really love the wreath against the planked background. And how simply elegant the snowflakes are on the Swiss dots embossing! Beautiful each one. Thanks for the inspiration...since time is flying by and I need more cards! Haha! Hugs!
