Festive Friday

Hello and Happy Friday!

It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday

Would you take a look at this lovely photo we have for inspiration this week! I absolutely LOVE snowflake stamps! I have more of them than anything else! They rival flowers in my stash :D Anyway, I got some pretty new snowflake stamps and dies from My Favorite Things for Christmas, and I thought they would be perfect for this photo!

and here is what I came up with!

The white background is cut out with a rounded rectangle die from Spellbinders. I then stamped the pretty background images with Fairisle Backgrounds from WPlus9. I inked my stamp up and then I sponged over it to get rid of most of the ink as I wanted it to be real light. The pine branches and sentiment are also from WPlus nine and the snowflakes are from My Favorite Things. 

I hope you will play along with us at Festive Friday!

You can also check out the amazing talent from the other design team members at Festive Friday!

I hope you all have a safe and wonderful weekend! Looks like a rainy one here for us, but at least it will not be frozen! haha! :D

  1. Kay, this is absolutely stunning. I love the soft stamping. Gorgeous!

  2. Such a gorgeous card, Kay! I love that you chose soft, muted colors, and your snowflake is just beautiful! Thank you for always inspiring us with your lovely creations...I'm really going to try to play along with this challenge :-)

  3. BEAUTIFUL, Kay!! LOVE that colour soft, so pretty! Have I mentioned how much I love your style?!!! ;)

  4. This is gorgeous Kay. I love the soft background.

  5. It's beautiful Kay! Hope you have a great weekend.

  6. Lovely, Kay! I so enjoy your style. The muted colors work so well with your design. The background reminds me of a comfy sweater, so I get a soft warm vibe from the card even though it features snowflakes. You have impeccable instincts when it comes to creating cards. I hope that you cozy up in your comfy house and enjoy the rainy weekend. Maybe venture outside a bit and even jump in a puddle or two. *Ü*

  7. Kay - another stunning, amazing, eye-catching card! The background images are amazing; the perfect backdrop for your pine branches and snowflake. You've induced more swooning... Visiting your blog is always a treat, because, as I've mentioned before, you work magic with die cuts and stamps - things I can navigate my way around (well...sometimes!). Watercolours, and other trends, just don't cooperate with me, so when I head your direction, I know I'll see something totally captivating! Your creativity and talents bring me immense joy, as do your comments on my 'wee' attempts at creating. Yes - you are a gem!

  8. Gorgeous Kay. I love the delicate colours with the taupe card. I love the pine branches and the soft fairisle stamping too.

  9. So Pretty Kay!!! Those colors are fantastic! Love it :)


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! I read and appreciate each and every one so much! Hugs :)
