Sweet Stamps Challenge 24 - Winter Blues

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is.....

Winter Blues

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree.


I began with my Cheery Lynn Designs XL Snowflake Flurries embossing plate.  I ran Shades Klondike Blue dye ink across the plate before embossing my Vista Stardreams paper.  I stamped Snowflake 1 Large and Small onto Cryogen paper with the same Klondike Blue ink, trimming them out and popping them up on the background.  The last step was to add the sentiment, also stamped with Klondike Blue on Cryogen paper.  Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Don't forget that all holiday and winter items are on sale during the month of July.  And be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!
