rustic snowflakes - silvery snowflakes

Thank you so much for all of your kind comments about Rustic Snowflakes. This is truly one of my favorite sets that I am releasing with Papertrey Ink this year. I think that you will find that the set is definitely versatile. It will work for creating borders and backgrounds when working with other wintery stamp sets, but will also stand alone to create beautiful snowflake creations.

If you are new to Papertrey Ink's monthly releases, check out this information on Nichole's blog to learn more about this time of the month!


A lot of times when I am stamping, I will play around with techniques that I think will work with the images I am working with. One of the paper colors for this release is this Silver Shimmer (perfect for adding holiday sparkle to your projects) and I embossed a variety of the snowflake images onto it with a white embossing powder. The white embossing really pops on the silver cardstock - a perfect snowy look!


I got out my circle punch and used a 3/4" circle for the smaller snowflakes (I used a 1" size on this size snowflake for yesterday's project) and a 1 3/8" circle punch on the larger snowflake.


This is my favorite sentiment in the set - "may you never for get the flavor of snowflakes". The "snowflakes" is separate from the rest so that you can customize the color if you wish, or you could even just use it on its own. I stamped it here in a silver pigment ink.


All together you have a clean simple design, easy to reproduce for sending to family and friends.

Here's what I put together with the reverse square snowflakes...


I added a little rhinestone bling to the center of one of the snowflakes for a little extra shimmer.

Make sure to stop by Nichole's blog as she is sharing a sneak peek project with the Rustic Snowflakes set as well! Melissa will have another peek at her new set today too!

Thanks for visiting and come back again tomorrow for another peek of Rustic Snowflakes!
