Something New

Hello!

Here I am again! Woo hoo! Still enjoying my crafting time on holidays! :-)

This evening I sat down to create a card that has been hanging around in my head for a few days. Here it is.
I used PTI Snowflake Flurries and Framed Out #3. Colours are Memento Grey Flannel, Stampin' Up Old Olive and Pool Party. Card is PTI Basic White.

I used Papertrey Ink Snowflake Flurries to create this card. As soon as I saw these "snowflakes", this is what I imagined doing with them (layering and creating an explosion of colour). Only I never really saw snowflakes when I saw these stamps, I saw fireworks! Am I the only one? I love them!

This card is in response to three challenges.

CASology Challenge #25 gives us the theme "new". I was going to make a "new baby" card, but then today these gorgeous Snowflake Flurries entered my house and I had to use them immediately!
CARDS Blog Challenge for January brought us the beautiful colour scheme.
CASE Study Challenge #122 gave me the inspiration for the layout from this beautiful card by Windy Robinson. I CASified it quite a bit, but I think you can still see the link to the original. :-)
Thanks for coming by to visit me!

Gorgeous colour combination. I love how you've created a 'snow storm' but still managed a CAS look overall! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week, Michelle!

This is such a beautiful card. I agree with you in that I did not see snowflakes, but rather lots of fun graphic possibilities. Now, I am also seeing fireworks.

Congrats on the win at CASE Study! It's an obvious winner. The colors and beauty of the overlapping snowflakes (or stars, or flowers, or fireworks...) work real magic together. I love the scattered jewels, too. Well done. : )

Kristy T said...

Hi Michelle
This is great card - I love that you have overlapped all the stamps and created that cluster of 'fireworks'. I struggle to use circle shaped elements like that in my cards so I appreciate it when I see people use them really effectively. Congrats :)

Debby said...
