Stampin' Up Snowflake Card




I recently attended a couple of Stampin’ Up workshops run by my friend Choccy. Who lives in Arnold in Nottingham. Now I have to admit I never really previously wanted to get involved in Stampin’ Up as I knew it was expensive and I would want everything! I purposely avoided it and really only went to support my friend and use it as a gentle introduction back into making cards after not doing so for a very long time.

I do however have to admit that the items I have used so far have been fabulous quality. The dies cut really well and I love the magnetic plate for the Big Shot and am really in turmoil about paying £35 for one so I am holding off for the time being. The rubber stamps give you a really good impression, they may actually make a rubber stamper out of me yet……

This is the first card I had made at the workshop and also the first card I had made for over 5 months. Using the stamp sets and dies provided it was easy to make this card which I layered with 3d foam and added some gems to. The sentiment is a rubber stamp that was coloured with 2 markers and huffed on to “activate” the ink.

Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-

Card size – A6
Stamped Images – Stampin’ Up Festive Flurry Rubber Stamps
Sentiment – Stampin’ Up Wishing You Rubber Stamp set
Tools – Stampin’ Up Festive Flurry Framelits Die
Embellishments – gems

Techniques – Rubber stamping, diecutting


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
