The Snow is Glistening Stamp Set and coordinating Snowfall thinlits dies is a beautiful and exclusive new limited edition Set.
My idea for the unicorn card layout came from Pinterest, and as soon as I saw these intricate snowflake Dies, I thought they would make a cool and Christmassy alternative to the usual flowers you see on unicorn images.
I silver heat embossed the gorgeous tree image onto silver foil sheet and fussy cut the triangular shape out for the horn. I then sponged frost white shimmer paint onto the snowflakes to add to the wintery feel. I chose cool toned colours for this card and think the highland heather, rich razzleberry, balmy blue, coastal cabana and soft seafoam colours work so well together.
This bundle will be available for purchase ONLY UNTIL 30th November at my online store. Just click on any of the products in the list below to go straight to my shop.
I had been wanting to use my takeout treats bundle forever and I’m so glad I finally got the excuse I needed by combining them with the brand new stunning and limited edition snowflake showcase!
Gray Granite has become a firm favourite for me so I decided to use this colour for my box base, with fresh fig, gorgeous grape and soft seafoam cardstock for my snowflakes and the panels behind them.
The snowflakes were cut using the brand new Snowfall Thinlits Dies, and I stayed with a tone on tone look for the snowflake decoration on the box. Once die cut, I sponged white frost shimmer paint onto the snowflakes. I’m so in love with the metallic/frosted look the cardstock takes on once the shimmer paint has been added – so beautiful and Christmassy!
Just love how these boxes turned out – so pretty and I think they would also work well at Christmas time for wedding favours or table decorations for Christmas Day.
The stunning snowflake showcase which consists of two beautiful stamp sets and the coordinating Snowfall dies will be available to purchase from my online store from tomorrow, 1st November for one month only! I will be bringing you more projects featuring this beautiful set in the coming weeks.

I spotted these gorgeous little chocolate snowflakes in the supermarket and thought they would make such sweet Christmas treats.
The envelope punch board is the perfect tool for making these treat pouches to hold them. You could make these pouches with DSP, but I decided to make my own DSP using the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle to continue the snowflake theme. Once my cardstock was stamped, I sponged a little of the frosted shimmer paint over the larger background colour wash areas and embellished with some frosted epoxy droplets and some white ribbon which I coloured with Stampin’ blends. The colour combinations I used on each pouch (starting at the top left hand side and working round in a clockwise direction) were: pool party & balmy blue, mint macaron & night of navy, gorgeous grape & blackberry bliss, merry merlot & blackberry bliss.
You could put a little 3″ x 4″ card in the pouch and gift them with the chocolate inside at Christmas time. Or you could even punch a hole in the top, pull the ribbon through and attach to some Christmas packages as a chocolate treat and Christmas tag in one! Love that idea! Here’s the video to show how I made them.
- Take a piece of cardstock or DSP measuring 6″ x 6″
- Line it up on the envelope punch board and punch @ 2 5/8″ and score.
- Rotate and punch at the score line on all four sides
Flurry of Wishes is a lovely Christmas Stamp Set – I can’t understand why it took me so long to use it! I wanted to keep this card simple and pretty. I decided on a smoky slate, sweet sugarplum and soft sky colour way. I love this smoky slate gingham ribbon – it is so elegant and yet easy to use, and the silver sequin trim makes for a fun accent. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set and I used the Everyday Label Punch to Punch it out which means you can create a batch of Christmas cards like this very quickly! I used the softly falling embossing folder to achieve the ‘snowy’ background on my card front and it works perfectly with this stamp set.
