Today’s card focuses on some of the Specialty Paper.  It is the Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Series paper.  I have used all three sheets of it to create this fun card.


Stampin' Up!, Handcrafted Elements, Joy of Noel, Snowflake Magic, Iridescent Pearls, Jackie Beers



These sheets from the Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper are gorgeous.  I have used all three of the sheets in the pack.  There are two pieces of each sheet in the package.  The layer is one of the pieces.  And the ornament is made using the other two.  I think the white with silver piece makes the ornament look like one of the old mercury glass, or at least a well loved ornament that might have faded a bit.

Dies and Stamps

The ornament is created using the Handcrafted Elements Die set.  It is a stand alone die set that may have been overlooked in the Mini Catalog.  It is on page 21 in the upper right corner.  There are a few different dies.  But his ornament is my favorite.  It is made using two die pieces. The outer shell and then the center piece.  I used two of the different DSP papers to create my ornament.

The second Die set used is to give my ornament somewhere to hang from.  It is the Joy of Noel.  The little sprig of pine was just enough to hang the ornament.  And the matching stamp set is where the “Joyous” is from.  To keep the ornament as the star, I stamped the Joyous on Pool Party card stock and used Lost Lagoon Ink.  Even though I wanted it not as prominent it still needed some sparkle.  To give the sentiment some shine, I went over it with the Wink of Stella pen.  In person you can definitely see the sparkle.


The sparkle did not stop with the Wink of Stella.  I had to add some bling.  There are a few Iridescent Pearls scattered around.  They are hard to see because of the snow flakes in the photo.  But they are there.  You can see the two placed in the center of the ornament.

The last touch is the gorgeous Pool Party Ribbon.  My ornament needed to have a hanger.  The Pool Party and Lost Lagoon work so well together that I decided the ribbon would be perfect.  It is the Pool Party Grosgrain Ribbon.
