Paper Players 324 Snowflakes & Skis


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Nance is our Paper Players hostess with the mostest today and she has a theme that I know is near and dear to many stampers:


We all love snowflakes!  At least on cards, right?!  I had a totally different card made for this challenge, and then I saw the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and I KNEW immediately I had to make a different one!  Here is the sketch:


And here we go:


Of course, there is a story behind the card...remember my creative friend Michele?  She gifted me with these adorable skis cut out from REAL WOOD!!!  They're amazing!  She stamped the bindings with silver ink, so I just topped them with a silver glimmer snowflake (Taylored Expressions):
  

and added a silver-embossed sentiment and snowflakes (My Favorite Things' Hand Lettered Holiday)


and my clean and simple creation was done!  I LOVE this!  I stamped another sentiment on the inside, this time just with Silver Encore ink; still pretty but more subtle:


If you're interested, you can see Michele's takes on this sketch here.  

Now I KNOW you are chomping at the bit to show us your snowflake-filled creations!  We can't wait to see them ourselves!  Flurry on over to the Players and show them off and meanwhile check out what the others did while you're there!  Lots of snowy inspiration!  And thanks for stopping in today!

I had to chuckle at Cassidy yesterday....she squeezed her eyes shut tight so when she looked in her Advent box, it would be a surprise!  




Enjoy your day!

I was sidetracked trying to get to this card by looking at all of the others. Seriously - you are so creative! When I first saw this card I thought - she is going to win the CTS challenge with this one. Absolutely brilliant! Then I thought - now, what am I going to make? My fingers are crossed that you get the win - so deserving with this one!
