Beautiful Blizzard for Freshly Made Sketches

Texture! If there's one thing that really sells me on a stamp set, it's texture stamps and this Beautiful Blizzard* set has it in spades! (Maybe snow shovels!) From the blizzardy looking clouds to the wind gusts to the actual snowflakes, it's such an interesting set, that even though I've been thoroughly bored by same old, same old snowflake stamps up until now, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one and actually, on this Beautiful Blizzard Bundle*, where the die is just one large die that die cuts a smorgasbord of snowflakes in one go!

I thought the Bundle* would be a great fit for this week's Freshly Made Sketches' Challenge:

so I played along, in shades of Smoky Slate and Coastal Cabana.

  • Behind the snowflakes, die cut with the Blizzards Thinlit Die*, and the strip of Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper*, you can see glimpses of the amazingly textured blizzard cloud images made by two of the stamps in the Beautiful Blizzard stamp set*. I used Smoky Slate Ink to stamp them here.
  • I love the sentiment "If a hug were a Snowflake.." that comes in this set as well! It's stamped in Coastal Cabana at the bottom left corner. Because the sketch calls for the sentiment as part of the horizontal strip part way up, I added a coordinating sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels adorn every snowflake. I like that the snowflakes are all shapes and sizes.
